5 Business Professional Clothing Outfits for Your Work Week

Business professional clothing get a bad reputation. When most women think of professional office dress codes, they picture drab color palettes and stuffy suits. Even though business professional wardrobe guidelines are more strict, there is still plenty of room to have fun with your work outfits. That’s why we’re here with a week’s worth of office appropriate outfits that are far from boring.

Stepping up your office style can have big benefits. Taking risks with your clothing can help boost your self-esteem and effectiveness at work. Science calls it enclothed cognition; we call it the power of a great outfit. Taking small risks, like trying a new style or print, can lead to increased confidence when taking big risks in your career. So take the leap! Wear the print you were hesitant to wear; crush your presentation you were nervous to give; ask for that raise you know you deserve. You’ve got a whole posse of Boss Ladies behind you!

Liven up your work week with these 5 business professional clothing outfits.


Monday— Matching Suit Set

Nothing says professional like a power suit. Instead of your same old suit, choose a bold print or pop of color. Balance out the boldness by pairing your suit with a work wardrobe staple like a basic white button-down. The final look is professional with a touch of personality.

Tuesday—Basic Blouse + Patterned Pencil Skirt

Patterned pencil skirts can be a great starting point for mixing up your wardrobe. Sitting down you’ll look like you mean business, but when you stand up to give your presentation, BOOM, a powerful pop of print. Choose a fun print that represents your personality or interests outside of work. Think of statement pieces like this as a chance to show your personality. Your clothing— especially pieces you’ve rented— can be unique conversation starters.

Thursday— Feminine Dress + Black Blazer

As a Boss Lady, you should celebrate being a woman in the workplace! What better way than a feminine floral midi dress?! The silhouette is flirty while still covering enough skin for the office. Adding a basic black blazer keeps you feeling professional. The look is a great choice for days when you’re headed somewhere straight from work. Ditch the blazer and add a leather jacket for an easy desk-to-dinner swap.
