I’ve been reluctant to share workwear in the past since every office has a different dress code, and it’s challenging to make a generalization that applies to everyone. Then if you take the last year into account, when most people transitioned to working from home, it adds a WHOLE other layer of complexity. But I hear your requests for workwear attire, and seeing J.Crew’s latest work-from-wherever campaign influenced me to share some pieces that are more suited for the office!
WORK FROM WHEREVER
The idea of embracing your work environment resonates with me as someone who’s worked from home for the better part of the last decade! Getting dressed up for work despite not having a traditional office environment or anyone to enforce it has been something I’ve continued to do for myself and my productivity. Although I still have days when all I want to wear is workout clothes, I make an effort to put on a real outfit for the majority of the workweek!
Striped Cardigan Sweater // Black Midi Dress // White Button Up Shirt // White Blouse // Blue Puff Sleeve Blouse // Black Suede Heels // Earrings // Black Tote // Herringbone Blazer // Camel Sweater Blazer // Blue Ruffle Button Up // Navy Sweater Blazer // Plaid Dress // Black Pants // White Shirtdress
Dresses will always be my first choice, and a shirtdress feels very work-appropriate! The tie-front detail on this white Ralph Lauren dress is beautiful, and it’s a perfect piece to wear through the end of summer. But, of course, you can’t go wrong with a simple black midi dress! I think it’s a great idea to invest in a classic style like this one that you can wear year-round and style with different blazers or jackets as it gets colder. Since plaid season isn’t too far away, I felt like I needed to share this knee-length flare dress that is such a fun piece for fall.
Sweater blazers are a workwear piece I can’t recommend enough since they’re the perfect mix between a cardigan and a blazer! I’ve had this specific one for years now and still love it just as much as when I first bought it. The camel color is the most versatile for me, but navy and black are great basics too.
As timeless as a white button up shirt is, sometimes it’s nice to have a bit more options. Dress shirts with simple details like ruffles on the cuffs and collar make all the difference and can be a fun way to add a bit of variety to your workwear wardrobe. This shirt comes in white, blue stripe, and a couple of other prints, so it might be worth grabbing two colors when you check out!!
