Do you have work-oriented fashion frustrations? Is your nine to five leaving you stylishly stumped? If you’re feeling a little lackluster on the fashion front, fear not ladies, we’re here to banish your office attire blues with a few simple style suggestions on creating work appropriate looks with pin-up inspired pizazz.
A classic pencil skirt is a timeless wardrobe staple. They’re universally flattering and effortlessly chic. Our Classic Black High Waisted Pencil Skirt is the an office wardrobe must have. Sitting at the natural waist, this skirt can be dressed up with a tucked in blouse or worn with a basic tee for a more casual look. Pair with a statement clutch and vibrant belt for playful pops of color.
If you’re looking for something more adventurous but want the classic fit of a pencil skirt. Take it to the next level with a playful print. The Black and White Striped Pencil Skirt is cute and classic. Crafted in soft cotton with a hint of stretch and understated stripes, it can be styled with sleek accessories and patent leather shoes for a more modern look or worn with a necktie blouse and red heels for something a little more Mad Man-esque. You can also opt to keep it feminine and romantic with a soft floral print, like our Pink Floral Bahama Mama Skirt. The peplum and floral print lends a vintage-inspired touch, while the classic pencil silhouette keeps the skirt professional and work-friendly.
Style your pencil skirt with a simple black peplum top like the Black Stretch Knit Collar and Flair Top . With a peter pan collar, vintage-inspired peplum, and decorative buttons, its a look that is still on trend but with a cute retro flair.
What can we say about the little black dress that hasn’t already been said? Timeless, classic, effortless, and goes from day to night in a snap. The Haute Black Milan Dress is conference room appropriate and cocktail hour ready with a flattering surplice neckline, optional belt, and breezy swing skirt.
To add a little something to battle daily drab AND the blasting office AC, add a cardigan! Layer your look with a bold hued number like the Red Lace Fan Embroidered 1950s Cardigan. This button up cardi features a rounded neckline, retro-inspired embroidered fans, and ribbed cuffs and hem for a comfortable fit. Or if you’re looking for something more simple and classic, perhaps to balance out a vibrant print, a black cardigan, like our Black Button Up Cardigan, is a style must. This year-round wardrobe staple is an effortless way to make any look nine to five appropriate.
One of the best and simplest ways to find some reprieve from drab office neutrals is by adding some whimsical accessories. Our Peach Bow Stretch Belt is perfect for adding a hint of cute to pencil skirts, dresses, and cigarette pants. And a cheeky but understated necklace like the Purple Resin Dahlia Flower Necklace, will punch up any office outfit with a cheerful dose of vibrant hues.
