Monday mornings. There are two things about it that can make starting off the work week challenging. The first would be making sure that you get up on time so that you can get to work…on time. The other is rummaging through your closet to see what you can put on that is fashionable and comfortable too.
If you’re in desperate need of some work outfit inspiration, here are a few ideas that will put a smile on your face every time you walk past a mirror or window while at the office. (It might even catch the eye of a co-worker that you’re interested in as well!)
Maxi skirt and T-shirt
There aren’t too many things more wonderful than a maxi skirt. It makes you look great and you can mix-and-match it in so many different ways. Like with a solid color T-shirt, for example.
A great denim dress
This is such a delightful denim dress. And what really makes it appropriate fr any office is the cut and the fact it’s dark blue.
Conservative with a bit of polka
Do you work in an environment that is a bit on the conservative side? You can still have some fun with the help of a polka dot blouse like this one.
All neutral wear. In the spring and summer, shades like white and tan put together is literally a breath of fresh air.
Leather jacket, baby doll dress and booties
So, what do you like more? The fact that the baby doll dress and denim jacket go so well together or that the booties are a fantastic alternative to heels? (Go ahead and ponder. We’ll wait…)
A sheer blouse
Every professional woman should have a few blouses in her business wardrobe but that doesn’t mean they all have to be white and boring. As you can see right here.
How to make shorts work
A Fortune 500 company may not allow shorts, of any kind, at their workplace. But if you work in a place that is a bit more laid back, here’s one of the best ways to make a pair of shorts work…while you’re working.
Boho at work
Boho fashion is big and with the right shirt dress and accessories, you can easily wear it to work.
Sport your grey jeans
One of the best ways to get away with wearing jeans is by wearing some that are a different color than blue. Like these grey skinny jeans. If you pair it up with a blouse and jacket, your boss will even compliment you.
The perfect shirt dress
Shirt dresses are a working woman’s best friend. Especially one that is made out of a free-flowing fabric like satin or silk.
One of the best ways to wear skinny jeans
If you’re lucky enough to have “Casual Fridays”, use that as a opportunity to wear your skinny jeans. Then dress them up a bit with some brightly-colored open-toed pumps.
A floral print blouse
Floral shirts are a wonderful way to bring a touch of spring into the office. Any time of the year.
Striped shirt and wedge heels
Speaking of spring (and summer), if you don’t already own a striped shirt (and flare skirt), it’s a worthwhile investment. Look how cute everything is; especially with the help of a pair of wedge heels.
A black suit
If you don’t already own one, get yourself a black suit. The jacket and pants go well together or you can wear them as separates. Plus, it’s one of the best ways to “sneak on” a tank top or even a graphic T-shirt.
Some brown and teal
Figuring out what to wear at work isn’t just about the articles of clothing but the color combinations too. Brown and teal is a really good one.
Floral pants with a solid color blouse
If you have some floral skinny pants or jeans, they’ll work at work too. Simply put on a blouse and some pumps.
Fun with pastels
This outfit is conservative but it also has a lot of personality to it. That’s thanks to the pastel shades. (Pink and mint green? Very cool.)
A blazer and mini to ‘match’
Your mini skirt will be just fine at work. So long as you have on a tank and a blazer with it. (Hint: if you don’t want to draw too much attention to the skirt, put on some flats rather than high heels.)
Drawstring capris (and a jean shirt)
Here’s another great casual outfit. The main thing to remember when trying to pull off an outfit like this one is that accessories are everything. Well, that and the right shoes.
Black with a couple of (surprising) colors
If all she had on was the black and grey, she’d look a bit bland. But that teal statement necklace and lavender bag makes the entire outfit so (work) ready for anything.
Light colors for summer
This is a really nice summer look. The pale pink shirt and apricot skirt is light and the pin-striped jacket makes it very business-like.
A grey variation
Grey is one of the big colors for fall. But that doesn’t mean you can’t add some color. Just think of how captivating you’ll be in this particular palette.
Wonderful in winter
As you can see, yellow is a color that you can wear all year. It’s really attractive when it’s added to grey and black.
