It’s Sunday (or Monday) and you’re contemplating your wardrobe for tomorrow or the week, and although dressing for work is not the most exciting task in the world it can be less of a bore. Whether you work in corporate finance or creative management we’ve got some great office looks that will keep you from feeling as strict as your corporate policies. Because standing out – in a good way – is a great thing.

#1 An elegant, sophisticated and chic dress.


In every career girl’s wardrobe should lie an elegant, sophisticated and chic dress. If you work in the strict corporate world such as law, finance, or government than a stylish one piece is the miracle cure to “what do I wear to work tomorrow” syndrome.

Try a skirt-and-top pairing that will take you from boardroom meetings to an after work soiree or client meeting with little to no fuss.  A balanced silhouette with pencil skirt and bold print top; or for pant lovers the ongoing culottes trend, with a structured short jacket and heels will be the bees knees to the start or finish of your week. Elongate the legs with neutral shoes or matching shoes to the skirt.

If your work environment rides the line between corporate and creative, such as Marketing, Advertising and PR then mixing neutrals with snazzy accessories is the key from looking and feeling drab. Be bold, but don’t be offensive, so stick with colors that are striking but not to overbearing. A neutral dress or skirt and silk blouse with cranberry red or spicy orange shoes will bring a little pop in your day.

+ Céline Sunglasses
+ Reiss Cyan Relaxed Tuxedo Blazer
+ Reiss Gillian Pleated Cropped Trousers

#4 Go a little outside the box.

The more creative your industry and office environment the more fun options you have for your wardrobe. So Stop! put away those jeans and leggings and have some stylish fun. Go a little outside the box. Match prints and textures with one basic piece, blazer, pant, skirt, etc. Bold and seasonal prints will add fire to your office wardrobe and will be the starting conversation topic. Great way to network.

  • Camille Beygui

    Absolutely love these outfit inspirations

  • Melanie

    The dress is really helpful. I have a hard time trying to figure out appropriate dresses to wear to work. So that I can look my age, but not
    too old, but also appropriate for work. This gives me a starting point. It is really helpful. Thank you!
