Dressing for work doesn’t have to be painful. With a few simple staples and plenty of accessories, you can switch up your look all season long.
Workwear – just like the office – has undergone a transformation within the last couple of years. Don’t get overwhelmed with all the options. Instead, look to these essentials to help you create a variety of looks that are as stylish as they are budget friendly.
Crisp, classic, and they go with everything. Button-down shirts are the ultimate workwear piece. Women can dress them up with a skirt and pumps or go a bit more casual with wide-legged trousers and a statement necklace, while men have the option to pair them with a blazer or go without.
While pants are always a go-to option, there’s something chic about wearing a skirt to work. Whether it’s a mid-length pencil skirt or a belted maxi, skirts can be worn all year long with the right accessories.
Add a statement piece
When your wardrobe is simple, a great way to dress it up or down is with statement jewelry. Add a pop of color to any workwear look with earrings, necklace, or bracelet. Jewelry is also an easy addition to take any daytime look into night – perfect when you want to meet friends after a day of work.
Tailored is in
Grabbing a few essentials from your local shopping center is the best way to build a wardrobe, but give your look a polished fit with the help of a tailor. If you already have some favorite pieces, a tailor can make adjustments to give them a truly custom fit.
Whether you’re headed to the office or you’re at home with a constant flurry of Zoom calls, these simple workwear options will keep you feeling polished and ready any time.
