Is it the greatest pencil skirt ever? I don’t think so, but it does have some great features. Here’s the deal:
On paper it seems perfect. Here’s where it’s falling short for me:

I guess everyone has different styles and tastes, different needs and preferences, but it’s funny how some things seem to get overlooked while other things get over-popularized. I feel like Encircled’s All Day Work Dress is severely overlooked online and I have no idea why!
What Encircled Has To Say About The All Day Work Dress (My Thoughts Added In Bold):
So comfortable, you’ll forget you’re in workwear. 100% agree.
The All-Day Work Dress is made from machine-washable, soft and breathable 4-way stretch fabric. Haven’t washed yet, but the fabric has a nice stretch and is super comfy.
This tailored dress is zipper-less so you can just slip it on and go. Found it easy to put on and take off, personally.
Layer with the Everyday Twist Top for a work-perfect look. Love this look. See Below. Everyday Twist Top is a great piece from encircled!

Who is Encircled’s All Day Work Dress For?
Anyone who loves to dress up and look polished while still being comfortable would love encircled’s All Day Work Dress. If you pretty much live in dressy sweat pants or encircled leggings (no judgement!) and only dress up occasionally, this may not be the best investment piece for you. But then again, it is a classic, timeless look so it would also make a reliable go-to dress for those special occasions that may be few and far between for you. You decide.
My Personal Review of Encircled’s All Day Work Dress
As seen on the encircled website:
I don’t understand why it seems like no one is talking about this dress?! I know the price point seems high, but this is a really, really, REALLY nice dress.
The tricky part about these softer materials is that they can be clingy in a way that not everyone wants (regardless of size/shape) or that isn’t always appropriate for all occasions. But a more structured dress is often made from materials that are not sustainable. That presents a difficult situation for a conscious shopper.
Somehow encircled has addressed this issue with this dress! It is nicely fitted at the top with a classy neckline and once you hit the waist there is a snug under layer and then the layer on top is more structured with those really flattering pleats (is that the right term?) and pockets!
The pockets are great! I had an iPhoneXS Max in my pocket and it fit so nicely that I actually forgot it was there. I ran around my house wondering where I sat my phone down and then I remembered it was in my pocket. Haha! No joke!
Anyways I think this dress is a great marriage of super comfortable, sustainable fabric together with a wonderfully classy and professional dress design. If your lifestyle involves dressing up often then this may be a good investment piece for you. If you’re more of a casual person all the time, then it maybe wouldn’t be your jam.
I went with the recommended size Small for my measurements and it fits great. I am short at 5’2” and the dress hits just perfectly at the bottom of my knee which is my preferred length. If you are taller just bear in mind that it will be a bit shorter on you. There is a helpful box with the dress measurements from shoulder to waist seam and then from waist seam to hem so do check that out.
