1) The Pencil Skirt: How to Make the Most of this Classic Office Style
We all know of those skin-tight pencil skirts that have been around the office place for decades. "How can you even move in that?", you might ask, and we agree.
We're loving the faux wrap pencil skirts we are seeing now, with room to move, and subtle detail with the wrap front feature.
Even better, a slitted faux wrap pencil skirt.
A slitted pencil skirt allows for more mobility, and the side slit style is everywhere right now. Modernize your pencil skirt with these details, and take this classic office style to the next level.
2) The Jumpsuit: A Power Stance
Jumpsuits are EVERYWHERE right now, and they are perfect for the workplace.
While a full pantsuit can sometimes be too much in the workplace, a jumpsuit can be the perfect median and is a great option when you don't want to wear a dress or skirt.
Also, how easy are jumpsuits? You don't have to worry about matching separates - it's the easiest way to have a polished and complete look.
We're loving solid, typically all-black jumpsuits for the workplace. Leave the loud prints at home.
We're opting for a 3/4 sleeve piece, with a palazzo pant line for this all-in-one, just throw it on and go, option.
3) The Waterfall Coat: A Fall & Winter Fave
Trenchcoats in the workplace used to only be for men, but we are adoring this style for women.
The waterfall coat is the perfect and practical coat we love this season. We're loving them for fall, they are a perfect layering piece that will keep you warm and stylish in the chillier months.
We're all about this waterfall collar coat - suede is going to be so popular this fall, and we can't get enough of this mauve color.
Mauve is such a unique color, that actually goes with everything. Pair with a white blouse and slacks and you're ready to go.
We don't think mauve can be limited to just spring, and are going to be wearing this color all fall and winter long.
4) The Palazzo Pant: Office Perfection
This elegant style is easy, and breezy, and always has the best movement and mobility. It's a great alternative to slacks, which can be a tighter option with less stretch.
We're going for an all-black palazzo pant with pleated and a belted waistline for a professional look that will keep you comfortable.
Pair with a solid or printed blouse and a low heel for effortless style.
5) The Classic Shift Dress: A Basic Must Have
This is a polished style that has never gone away.
Make it printed or solid, you can't go wrong with this classic and easy piece.
Want to spice up your office shift dress? Try going with a fun and unique print!
We love this foliage printed dress, the muted color palette is perfect for the office environment, while also being such a unique print that you won't see everyone else wearing.
The sleeve length is perfect for the workplace - pair this one with a simple solid heel, and you're ready to go.
6) The Blazer: A Staple
The classic blazer is an office wear staple.
This little wonder can be worn over everything, from dresses to blouses, for polished workday wear.
We're loving styles that are lightweight, and unstructured, giving you mobility and comfort.
7) The Easy Breezy: Button-Down
Button downs are another style that is not just for men.
A classic striped or solid button-down is perfect under your blazers, trenchcoats, or styled with an elevated pant.
8) Blouse Goals: Elevated Styles
Blouses are a must in your work wardrobe, and we love them because they can also be styled differently to wear outside the office, making the most of your closet.
We love the crepe or wrap style for the workplace.
Pair them with pants or skirts and finish them off with heels and accessories for a girl boss ensemble.
9) That's a Wrap: The Wrap Dress
The wrap dress is one of the most flattering silhouettes a dress can offer.
This classic look is perfect for a more casual Friday, and ideal to transition from the workplace to happy hour.
Pair them with a low or high heel, a trendy handbag, and your favorite accessories and you're ready to go.
