A request I get quite often from my readers is work wear. For me, it’s something that tends to be so different than most working gals, mainly because I can essentially wear what I want at my store!
While I do like to keep it casual, it does feel good to get dressed up every once in a while for work and wear a cute dress or even a skirt! One thing I like to try and focus on though are items that are versatile-can I wear them outside of work, too? Can I mix and match with other items in my closet I already own? If I can answer yes to those questions, then getting the item is a no brainer for me!
I have loved rediscovering Bon-Ton and their selection of stylish, wear-to-work pieces, but also other items (and brands!) that can easily be transitioned from work to play! With their selection being pretty broad, it was easy to find items that I could incorporate into my current wardrobe.
This dress is adorable and a great work option-to me it can be such a versatile piece. Wear a pair of tights and boots when it’s a little chillier, or when the temps warm up, toss on a cute pair of strappy heels and wear without the tights! I am more of a flats/sneakers gal these days, so I would love to wear this with my white sneakers and a denim jacket, just to dress it down and get more wear out of it!
When I think of a true, wear to work outfit, this skirt/jacket combo is totally it. I like how all of the pieces are true separates, but together they make such a chic outfit! When I talk about mix and match pieces, these are it! This jacket, for example, I can see wearing with a cute pair of skinny jeans, a graphic tee and sneakers or flats for a more dressed down look. To brighten up the skirt, you could pair it with a color like red or pink, even. This cami with the criss cross detail is also something that can easily be layered with other items in your closet!
There really is nothing more classic for your closet than a great pair of black pants. For me, gone are the days of wearing those super flowy and long dress pants (think the kind you would see paired with a suit jacket). To me, its all about the fitted, cropped dress pants. While it’s good to have your basic, go-to pair, I think it’s also fun to have a pair with a little twist, like these lace hem ankle pants. Since the pants are more fitted, I opted to pair it with a looser fitting, flowy top, like this floral print top!
What are some of your go-to pieces for work? Not sure, and in the process of building your work wardrobe? Remember to look for separate pieces that you can mix and match-you will get so much more wear out of your wardrobe.
