Business Conference

Continuing to work through the office style section of 30 Dresses in 30 Days, let’s discuss looks for the days that take you out of the office, and into the networking hustle. When it comes to business conferences, you’re representing yourself of course, but also your company — so it’s important not to drop the sartorial ball.

There’s some logic at work here. You want to look polished and professional, but we’re talking about long conference days that feel jam-packed and nonstop.  Find something elevated from your everyday workwear, but make sure you’re comfortable, too. I’m talking the dress and the shoes, friends — don’t neglect your feet, you’ll need them on your team.

 


SAM EDELMAN

Hazel Pointy Toe Pump (similar HERE)

I love love LOVE this dress which is somehow, inexplicably, under $100.  [Pause for reaction.]  I know.  It’s a gorgeous soft satin, so it’s comfortable and feminine, but the shape is still super chic and polished—only in need of a few simple accessories and a classic shoe.  I have to say, this particular shade of burgundy means business.  It’ll take you through work conferences, holiday parties, dressy dinners, and beyond.  Man do I love a good multi-tasker.

I find the color absolutely divine, and love that it has a stronger purple undertone than most burgundies you come across.  YUM, right?! I think I’d like to own much more of this shade, thank you very much.

Bag (sold out, similar HERE and HERE)

Also, the tie detail at the waist makes the whole thing super flattering.  Not only does it create a beautiful hourglass silhouette, but the gathering across the stomach also means the dress is very forgiving—a great thing for a dress to have on its resume during the holiday season, no?


Check out a few more conference-ready dresses below that show real professional potential. And, if I was going for as many work puns as possible in this post, I hope we can all agree I got the job done.
