Shop Desk-to-Dinner Dresses, Stylish Editor's Picks @ Elegant Plus, Sizes 12 +
Dresses that can go easily from desk to dinner for the busy professional woman often have certain characteristics.  Because of the need
for work appropriate daytime wear styles tend to be more conservative and tailored.  Look for dresses with feminine detailing such as peplum or
ruffles, soft prints, and bold solid colors.  Often tailored, choose styles that flatter curves without clinging.  Here are the plus-size dresses that go from desk to dinner
hand selected just for you by the Elegant Plus Style Editor:

Desk-to-Dinner Dress Report

Finding dresses that strike the perfect balance between being work appropriate and flirtatious enough for dinner with a date can be challenging.

Color plays an important role, with hues in the red, orange, or pink family popular choices along with classic black. Floral prints, in particular, are date classics but other prints can also make the right style statements.

Work appropriate styles often include more modest neck-lines and sleeves, but tailored lines can have more body conscious styling for transitioning to dates.  Sleeveless dresses can be layered under a cardigan or jacket for work which can then be removed for dinner. Changing jewelry and shoes is another important styling tip for making the transition from office to social event.

These selections can also make good options for office parties and dinners after hours.
