Long gone are the days of stiff, shoulder-padded suits and pesky pantyhose. The modern woman wants comfortable yet classy workwear that works for her. And the confident, hard-working Aris woman wants even more. She requires nothing less than a work-drobe that transcends her 9-5 and comes in quality fabrics sold at a bargain price.
Aris is a brand-new Aussie label (they only launched 3 months ago) that is redefining the boundaries of on-duty dressing. Their take on the classic sheath dress and tailored suit features bold details that tastefully border the line between edgy and refined. In their mission to create staple pieces for working women that evoke a sense of individuality, they have surely succeeded.
The common characteristic of their clothing that caught our eye was their extremely flattering fit. Every piece really accentuated the waists and figures of our Real Women Role Models, making them feel feminine and confident. Whether in the form of a full-body zipper, a neckline cut-out, or a front skirt slit, every piece has some unique detail that ties in to Aris’ contemporary image and draws us in.
Aris redefines the boundaries of on-duty dressing.
The Halter Dress (right + below), made with a lighter fabric suitable for summer, and the Crescent Dress, made with a thicker material perfect for when temperatures begin to drop, are both stunning in Navy. The dresses have a beautiful shine to them and the cut-away hemlines look elegant and unprecedented.

The Fitted Long Zip Dress (right) is just that—a simple and effortless sleeveless number that defines an hourglass silhouette perfectly. The full zipper back grants the dress a sleek, streamlined look, just make sure you check the measurements as the fabric doesn’t have a lot of give. So throw on a pair of strappy heels and let your hair down to easily transition from on-duty to off-duty in seconds.
The equally versatile Circle Cut Dress is more voluminous with a two-texture slight high-low hemline and a satin finish ideal for office parties or for dressing down with sneakers.
For those of us who find accessorizing to be a chore, then the Cut Out Collared Top (below) is perfect for you. The high neck and collar cut-out are a statement-making substitute for jewelry. We wore ours paired with the Diagonal Pencil Skirt.
However, their clean, minimalistic designs aren’t the only reason why Aris is successfully merging professional and progressive. The brand also partners with a charity, Dress for Success, to help women achieve economic independence by providing them with gently used professional attire and teaching them basic career development skills. With a woman’s personal brand partially defined by her appearance, Aris aims to deliver exceptional offerings through both their label and their philanthropic efforts.
The best part of all? With the strong dollar, none of the pieces mentioned in this article are priced over $100. And as per usual, we always have a discount for our readers. Comment below with your favorite featured outfit!
