Weekday Wear Link Up: Printed Sheath Dresses and Colourful Cardigans

For this weeks Weekday Wear link up I'm wearing my favourite printed sheath dresses with some cosy cardigans to make some colourful corporate style outfits.

What I wore:

Jacket: thrifted SES Fashions mustard yellow cardigan
Necklace: Kmart gold and navy beaded necklace
DressFrench Connection 'Woodblock wonder' panache dress in white/geranium rose
ShoesAtmos&Here tan Lola leather ankle boots
BagLouis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull

Why I wore it:

It was such a warm day when I wore this - a little teaser of the upcoming summer heat before the Ekka winds set in the next day and cooled things in Brisbane right down back to winter temps! I went out during my lunch break at work to run a few errands and actually regretted the cardigan! My plan had been to belt it in place but I knew I'd probably have to take it off at some point with the summer temps, so left it unbelted so I could do so.

You've seen me wear yellow with this dress before - often in smaller doses like a yellow necklace or scarf. I thought I'd be a bit bolder this time and pair the orange printed sheath dress with the mustard yellow cardigan. I really liked this outfit, perfect for a busy day at work and a little time outside in the sunshine at lunch time. The ankle boots kept my bare legs cosy on the cooler morning, it quickly warmed up anyway.

With the summery citrus toned outfit, the Louis Vuitton neverfull bag seemed like the perfect choice!

BagLouis Vuitton MM damier azur neverfull

Why I wore it:

This outfit was worn on a more winter like day, so followed the same outfit formula as the first, but with a few more layers. I really like blue and purple together so I was surprised to see I hadn't worn this purple cardigan with the blue paisley print sheath dress before! It's such a great combination.

I needed to be just a little bit warmer though, so added my cosy fleece-lined tights, as well as my purple Marc Jacobs blanket scarf. This scarf is such a stunning piece, and even though it has a print it's subtle enough that it looks nice worn with the paisley dress. It's not an exact match to the cardigan, but I did like the two different purple shades together. The Louis Vuitton Neverfull adds more print to the outfit, but I see this bag as a neutral and will wear it with any print!

With all the colour and print, a classic black pair of ballet flats seemed like the best shoe option. Super comfortable too!

How You Can Wear It:

A fun and colourful printed sheath dress is a great option for your work wardrobe. You can play it safe and stick with neutral layers to accompany the bold print and let the dress make a statement on it's own, or you can get even more colourful by adding bright layers like scarves and cardigans that will compliment the colours in the print of your dress.

  8. The colours in the first outfit complement your fair skin wonderfully. The combination of that white and orange dress with a mustard long cardi is simply perfect. I also like the LV tote bag you paired with this look. The brown boots are very cute too. Such a beautiful styling.

    I also like the combination of white, purple and blue in the second outfit. That purple cardi is very pretty and that white and blue dress has got a lovely print. Both of these outfits are absolutely fabulous.

  46. Adoring these colourful corporate looks, so fun and summery! The citrus cuteness of the first look is gorgeous, I love orange and yellow together and this works so dreamily :) The print of the dress is to die for and it goes perfectly with the mustard ♥︎

    The paisley print of the second outfit I'm obsessed with, and you're rocking it so well against the pretty purple! I agree blue and purple work wonders together, such lovely tones to put together. Hope you're having such a fabulous week so far :)

  58. I love both dresses with both of your cardigan picks. Those are not colors I would have thought to put together but they work just great. I really need to get some more long cardigans (I have 2 black ones....how uninspired is that? And they're not even really long...just hip-length. And what a great bag! I love that they named it "Neverfull" - LOL! They don't know me....
