A sheer sleeve detail gives a modern spin on an all black office attire. Trendy details like this makes your work style look more current.
Spring/summer colors are toned down with a crisp, white button down and a pair of sensible cognac pumps. The aqua lace skirt and multicolor statement necklace add a bit more breezy and feminine style into your office looks.
A white sheer shirt buttoned all the way up looks refined yet alluring paired with black slacks and pumps, an office wear staple. A structured leopard print tote gives your work look a much needed punch of print.
Don’t limit yourself to black, brown, and navy when shopping for trousers. Embrace color and keep the rest of your work outfit conservative and neutral.
A double-breasted checked blazer gives a black and white dress more polish. This tailored blazer upgrades this look and makes it more stylish and elegant. Definitely an outfit for taking on the boardroom.
Muted yellow pants combined with a tomboy chic navy blazer is a refreshing take on a typical pantsuit. The relaxed fit of the pant and white button down is what separates this outfit from your standard office wear.
If you want to give a contemporary update to your gray skirt suit, simply add some edgy accessories into the mix. Studded pumps, gold aviators, and a structured red snakeskin tote don’t look so bold when paired with this conservative and classic ensemble.
Make your LBD work for the office by layering a crisp blazer over it to tone down its evening appeal. Low heeled yet trendy pumps give this getup a bit of pizzazz.
