With warmer weather coming our way, we love to make dresses our go-to outfit choice. But what do you do when you have a full day of work and errands, as well as a night out with some friends? It’s time to explore versatile dresses that will perfectly transform from work to play.

At Velvet Heart, we’re all about casual, versatile clothing so that we can guide you to the best spring dresses for work, play, and everything in between. Check out our recommendations, and maybe you’ll find something new to add to your spring workwear collection!

1. Venice Dark Black River Shirt Dress


Designed to be lightweight and breezy, our Venice dress is an excellent option for casual workplaces and happy hour environments. You get some flirty playfulness with a skirt cut right above the knee, but the collared neckline and long sleeves ensure you look a little more serious and demure. The button-up details add an interesting twist to this spring dress for work or play, while the tie-around waist accentuates your shape. If you feel like you’re showing a little too much leg, you can always throw on a pair of leggings or tights to tone down this look even more.

2Amalia Olive Leopard Shirt Dress



Looking for the perfect balance of lighthearted and professional? The Amalia dress delivers! With a subtle leopard print in olive, moss, and juniper hues, you get a free-spirited design that doesn’t go overboard. This is one of our favorite spring dresses for work and play because the loose drape and frayed neckline are so comfortable and flattering for women of every shape and size. Pair this inclusive piece with a pair of neutral strappy sandals for a day around town or a closed-toe pump for the office.

3. Bree Black Tiered Babydoll Dress


For a looser fit that still has a lot of unique design details, the Bree dress is one of our favorite pieces. A mini dress with a tiered shape that accentuates your legs, the Tencel™ material feels ultra-soft against your skin. Add an extra layer with a cardigan, and finish this outfit off with some flat booties to keep your look casual. It’s the best dress for spring workwear because it’s easy to layer and accessorize!
