Work Dresses You Don’t Have to Dry Clean

There comes a time in every professional woman’s life when she realizes she’s spent half her savings on dry cleaning. When you’re building a power wardrobe, you quickly learn that caring for a garment is often more expensive than the garment itself. But unless you plan to stop sweating and/or spilling on yourself (for the record, we plan to continue doing both), your dry-cleaning bill will always be a burden. Our secret source are dresses that look dry-clean-worthy but are actually machine washable and you’ve come to the right place. Here are 13 gorgeous work dresses you don’t have to dry clean.
