Classy Designer Formal Dresses for Your 9 to 5

During our WFH episode in the pandemic, we all got pretty comfy living in our loungewear pieces to attend the ‘no-video’ Zoom calls and ‘audio-only’ meetings. But we are midway through 2022 now, and the after-effects of the pandemic are gradually fading away. We all know what this means. Back to the office. For real. The cloud of normalcy is settling in, and people are stepping out of their homes for work, but it is unnecessary to sacrifice one’s comfort to appear fashionable. And I think many major designers would completely agree with us.

Formal dressing does not have to be challenging. But, if you are nervous about encountering someone like the bossy Miranda Priestly and getting hit with aYou have no sense of fashion’ slap, relax; we have you all covered. Having a few options of designer formal dresses in mind before your big work meeting or even an interview is greatly helpful in avoiding nervousness and confusion. We are positive that with The Luxury Closet’s wide offerings from luxury fashion designers, you can curate a wardrobe full of comfortable choices, appropriate silhouettes, and catchy understated tones. 

Roland Mouret 

When we think of workwear, the first name that comes to mind is British fashion designer Roland Mouret. A skilled couturier, Mouret’s designs have now come to cultivate a long list of high-profile clientele and even royals. Minimalism is his mantra. His silhouettes often display modest and unadorned styles, with a few details here and there. Contrast trims, slim-yet-elongated zippers, clever cuts, and sleek necklines against plain backgrounds are recognizable elements of his sartorial technique. Here are some of the many Roland Mouret options from The Luxury Closet that we have picked for you.
