Loving fashion and working in an office can kind of be tricky. Some dress codes are more strict than others, so take these looks as you can and apply them to what your dress code it. My office is pretty relaxed on dress code, but there are certain things like no ripped jeans, and just have a professional look.
I love that these looks can be worn year-round just by switching up a few things and I’ll tell you how you can do that!
This jumpsuit is a go-to work look for me because it’s easy to throw on but is an instant chic outfit. I add a tee under it for more coverage. I throw on the blazer because my office is always freezing and it also adds a more sophisticated piece to the look.
For the colder months: I’d add a thin turtleneck underneath and add a cool heeled bootie.
CLASSIC BLACK & WHITE
This is such a simple look but always guarantees you’ll look put together. I opted for culottes because they are super comfy but dressier than say a black pair of jeans. I also love the knot-front top instead of just a plain white top or tee, it adds something special. And the little black heeled-sandal is still comfortable but is dressier as well, and the pop of red from the bag adds a fun element and breaks up the monochromatic look.
For the colder months: I’d opt for a turtleneck again or a sweater and do a side tuck or a button-up blouse with a blazer, which is a no-fail look. Switch out the sandal for ankle boot again or a knee high boot, so it looks more uniform and there won’t be the gap of skin.
POP OF COLOR + DENIM
A button-up blouse is a staple piece in my wardrobe. I love keeping them casual with jeans, but for the office, I dress up more. Even though denim is usually pretty casual, because this skirt is a midi skirt and I paired it with heels, it’s a more professional take on denim. If you wanted to dress this look up more, add a pencil skirt.
Tip: If I’m wearing something colorful to the office, I try to keep my accessories to a minimum so it’s not too much going on.
For the colder months: I’d switch out the bright colored button-up with a black or navy one, add a black pencil skirt or black dress pants, and a closed toe heel (or chic flats) and throw on a trench.
THE “EVERYTHING” DRESS
This dress really is the “everything” dress! It works for any occasion whether it’s dressy or casual. I paired it with flats, just to have the best of both worlds of dressy and casual.
For the colder months: You’re probably tired of me saying this but, add a bootie and a faux-fur coat over the dress and it’s totally city-chic vibe.
I hope you enjoyed this work wear lookbook! What’s your go-to office look?
