1) Plaid Blazer + Bold Pants

Add a dose of color to your work wardrobe with a pair of boldly printed pants. Pick a pair that makes you look and feel good. A wide leg, high waisted pair is a great place to start. A great outfit can give an instant confidence boost on a big day. With this fun look you’re sure to have all eyes on you, for all the right reasons.

2) Bomber Jacket + Flirty Dress

Comfort is key. On a day when you’re feeling bogged down with a long work to-do list, a comfortable work outfit can be a lifesaver. Whether that means wearing your favorite sneakers or tossing on your favorite dress, it is important to walk out of the house feeling like a Boss Lady who’s ready to take on the world. A printed midi is perfect for those days when you literally cannot put on real pants, but still need to look professional.

3) Cozy Cashmere + Patterned Midi

What is appropriate for work really depends on your office atmosphere. Business casual for some offices can mean more on the casual side or sometimes more on the fancy side. A safe bet is to be in the middle ground by adding a bit of both. A chunky knit and patterned midi skirt is a sure-fire way to be the office best-dressed list. Try an animal printed skirt to show your work friends you’re up to date on this season’s trends.

At the end of the day, the best thing you can do is put your best foot forward— so you might as well have on a great pair of shoes too. Something as simple as loving your work outfits can change your whole outlook on your day.

5) A Printed Jumpsuit

Take risks, both with your wardrobe and your career. Try a new color. Try a new print.

Denim… for the office? Yes! You can easily make denim office-appropriate in business casual environments. For your work outfits, choose a pair that is distressing-free and dark wash. Finish the look with a polished blouse and uber-chic boots. You can get away with wearing jeans to the office as long as you dress up your denim a bit.
