Work Wardrobe 101

How to Dress for the Office!

While many of us love updating our summer wardrobes, our jewelry collections, and of course our shoes, the office wardrobe is one that tends to get left behind. While it can seem like the most difficult one to keep up with, there are some simple things we can suggest to keep your work wardrobe as fashionable as the rest of your closet!

Tip #1: Invest in Dresses

Dresses are great for the office because they keep the morning routine short and sweet. Since they are only one piece, all you have to do is pick out shoes and jewelry and head out the door!

Don't be afraid to wear colors and patterns, but keep the cut of the dress simple. Longer hemlines and covered shoulders are more appropriate for work and will make it so you aren't fidgeting behind your desk all day.

Tip #2: Layer

Is it warm outside but cold inside? Cold outside but warm inside? Layering at work can help keep you comfortable so you can concentrate all day. Tanks with thick straps underneath cute cardigans and sharp blazers will help you regulate the temperature without disrupting your work routine. Again, don't be afraid to mix and match colors, patterns, and solids. Your wardrobe doesn't have to be boring just because your afternoon is!

Tip #3: Keep it Classic

Filling your wardrobe with simple classics that won't go out of style will help you keep your wardrobe updated as the fashion trends come and go. Having simple blouses and skirts that accessories can easily be added to allows you to add variety to your work wardrobe without draining your bank account.

Tip #4: Not too Casual Friday

Many of us are lucky enough to work somewhere that believes in a Casual Friday. Hey, we're all excited for the weekend! Why hide it? Just be sure to remember that you are still at work, so don't go too casual. Jeans with a darker wash will help you get ready for the weekend while still reassuring your customers or clients that you know what you're doing.
