Save precious morning minutes: 30 easy-to-wear, fuss-free work dresses for under £50

It's precisely 7.30am on most weekday mornings that we start to panic. Over what? Well, the clock is ticking far too fast, we have to leave the house in exactly 20 minutes and we don't like any of the clothes our wardrobe is offering to us.

The problem often lies in the fact that not all of our items of clothing form a complete, perfect outfit – whether it's a skirt that somehow doesn't match any top in your collection or a necklace that doesn't seem to complement any dress you own.

But thankfully, there's a breed of dresses that act as all-in-one, easy-to-wear outfits requiring precious little thought or styling. They don't need extra accessories, such as belts and statement jewellery, nor do they demand inner camisoles and slips.

Chic, effortless dresses such as these are style staples of some of the most kick-ass female heroines on the small screen, from Suits' Rachel Zane and Donna Paulsen, to House of Cards' Claire Underwood and Scandal's Olivia Pope.

A stylish and fuss-free statement dress can shave precious minutes off your morning routine – take a look at some of the best under £50 on the market right now.
