5 Fabulous Pieces to Add to Your Work Wear Wardrobe

The moments between waking up and leaving for work in the morning are precious; every second counts. Wasting time trying to find a killer outfit to wear to work is time that could be better spent eating an actual breakfast (instead of a granola bar on the commute to work) or catching some extra, well-needed Zs. By having versatile, easy-to-pair articles in your work wardrobe, you can easily throw together a knock out ensemble that looks like you spent a lot of time putting it together, but actually requires very little time to style.

The Wrap Dress

A killer look with just one garment – the feminine, flattering and versatile wrap dress is the number one work wear piece that every workingwoman should have in her closet. For work, opt for a wrap dress in a rayon material, for a more professional look. Whether in a solid color, a flirty floral rayon, or a fierce animal print rayon these dresses are perfect for a feminized power-dressing look.

The One Button Blazer

Pair with dark wash denim, solid or printed cigarette pants, or a matching pencil skirt, the one button blazer is essential for turning up the volume on professionalism in a number of outfits. If your place of business is more conservative, opt for a solid black stretch twill, but if you are lucky enough to work in a place where you have more stylistic freedom, a brightly colored stretch cotton like green or blue are a great pick.

The Chiffon Button Up Blouse

The chiffon button up blouse is a comfortable and chic alternative to the conventional cotton button up. With its slouchy silhouette and breezy fabric, it brings an air of casualness to a business look. You can pair it with denim for casual Fridays, or tuck it into a skirt or trousers for a more dressed up look. For spring, try it in fun, bright colors like fuchsia two-tone chiffon, turquoise silk chiffon, or bright red silk chiffon.

The Tweed Pencil Skirt

A classic, uber-feminine work piece, the tweed pencil skirt is a go-to all year round. It can be dressed up with a matching jacket and heels, or dressed down with a causal blouse and flats. Try it in neutral shades like navy/tan tweed or black/white tweed for easy pairing.

The Sheath Dress

The timeless silhouette of the sheath dress makes it a perfect pick for the workplace, it’s incredibly comfortable and the loose-fit is quite flattering. Try a fun geometric print, solid linen like orange beige suiting or a more dressy black lace version for wear-to-work chicness.
