From far away, we actually thought the Solid Silk Dress by Marc by Marc Jacobs
was a wrap dress, but it just has cute ruffle trim throughout the front. There's also a crew neck, self-belt tie, keyhole and two buttons at the bust, ruching at the waist, back, shoulders, and cuffs, three buttons at the cuffs, and 3/4 length sleeves. It is 36 inches long and 100% silk.

We haven't found a dress that we love more for work this fall than the Combo Sheath Dress by Shoshanna
. It combines a mid-weight jersey bodice with a variegated-striped felt skirt. You'll stay warm and still look professional and fashionable in it! There is a wide scoop neck, seam detail at the front, ruching and banding at the waist, and a hidden back zipper. The skirt is lined, and it hangs at 35 inches.
We simply adore the Turtle Shift by Susana Monaco
, which to us is the perfect work dress. It is sophisticated and stylish, yet conservative enough for most all work settings. It has a tie at the turtleneck, short sleeves, and hangs at 34 inches from the shoulder. It is available in three colors too: jet, midnight, and black.

The Leese Dress by Diane von Furstenberg
is pulled together because of the pleated and studden self-belt tie at the waist which stands out amongst the black of the dress. There is also a split V-neck, on-seam hip pockets, ruching at the waist, hidden five button closure, and pleating at the back, shoulders, and cuffs. It is 34 inches long.
