I wear a lot of pants during the fall and winter in Chicago. One of the joys of summer is that I can wear a dress to work and not freeze. Here are some of my 2012 favs, available online. Remember ladies, always look for color, shine, texture and a great fit as you shop for what looks good on you. Also, keep in mind your work environment and only buy dresses appropriate for your job. As great as a fabulous dress will make you feel, the feeling won’t last if your boss is horrified.
