As every woman knows, buying a dress is sometimes hard when you can't justify wearing it for more than one occasion. In a perfect world, we would be able to wear a new dress everyday of the week, just for fun. We would be wearing eccentric dresses to the most basic of occasions just because we could! But obviously, that is not the world in which we live and we have to behave by buying dresses that double as work friendly and after work friendly. So for you ladies who need your dresses to work overtime, we have rounded up some of our top picks to keep you looking fresh from 9-5, and then some.

First up we have this beautiful silk chiffon Amanda Moss dress is a great option for work. It's knee length, and can be worn with a cute jacket for those of you in an air conditioned space. 
Amanda Moss 001 - $235 - Westboro and Dalhousie.

It also comes in this lighter pattern which gives it a more airy feeling. One of the best things about this dress is that it can be worn in every season, just throw on a pair of tights when fall rolls around.

Another dress we love is the Lena dress by Dagg & Stacey. A light breezy piece that will carry you from the office to a patio. Pair it with some cute clog sandals and jean jacket and you're all set for easy livin'.

Candidate number 4 is this comfy cotton number by Sara Duke. It's super soft and doesn't cling so you'll definitely feel great in this dress all day long.

Sara Duke Every Dress - was $98, now $78 - West and Dalhousie.

And last but not least is this cool, modern dress by Eve Gravel. Its utilitarian style is offset with angled seams and dynamic layering. The full skirt creates a voluminous pleated look, but the over-layer streamlines it with a minimalist approach.
