PURE ELEGANCE - Mix work and play with six killer dresses

Mix work and play with six killer dresses

Finding an outfit that gives sheer confidence during the working hours and oozes pure elegance for an evening date is not easy to do. Matching the right shades and prints is just the beginning. There's also the matter of choosing accessories for the outfit. Such detailed planning requires a glass of water and a couple aspirins to recover!

Don't give yourself a headache - there are so many dresses online that show you mean business AND you're more than ready to play. To jump-start your search, here are some sizzling must-have one pieces. So are you ready for the hunt? Good, let's begin!

Heading to a date after work? Well this dress guarantees toturn heads during the office hours and sure to impress at anevening date.

Office dresses that's slightly above or below the knee, are an absolute mush-have this season. Carry this slinky piece offwith a pair of killer heelsa demur blazer or coat and you'll be ready for the world!

If your company doesn't forbid colours, this dress is perfect for going for drinks with some mates after a hard day at work. The elegant piece will of course be the ideal choice for a dinner date.

Ruby red - a big hit this season - gives this classic dress that funky feel, which can be teamed up with a pair of spiked heels, ballerina pumps or to-die-for calf length boots. To finish off the look, add a micro-slim gold belt. In fact the possibility is endless and you're sure to have this lifesaver years to come.

Wanna make an impact in and out of the office? Do it with prints! Just because we're fast approaching the cold months, it doesn't mean the colours should reflect this - go for ruby red, electric blue or fuchsia. If these shades doesn't excite you, play it safe with a monochrome elegant number.  If you're thinking of choosing funky patterns, go for a dress with a rigorous silhouette, keeping the length ideally to the knee.

We all love the little black number; let's face it's a colour that skims over our bumpy sins - well actually even with a LBD you can get it wrong. Choosing a bog standard LBD doesn't do any justice to your god-given curves or confidence.

So to boost your confidence, opt for a black dress with real character - exaggerated sleeves, collars or detailed pleats. The fabric should have some sheen to show off the bold shapes and with a pair of green-with-envy heels, you'll be ready to work hard and play harder!

Shift dresses with cropped sleeves have made a reappearance this season. For ultimate elegance, opt for a block colour of your choice. To show the diva inside you, team up this all-round piece with a chunky belt and a pair of jaw-dropping court shoes or boots. With a 1960s-inspired swing coat, the shift dress will carry through from day to night with ease.
