Pinterest Style: Relaxed Workwear

Apr 28, 2015

Dress: Sightseeing Double Dress ($50) // Blazer: Double Collar Blazer ($95) // Sunglasses: Ray-Ban Aviators ($113) // Necklace: Sorcerer’s Stone Necklace ($48) // Handbag: Forever21 Zippered Satchel ($29)  // Shoes: Morgen Peep-Toe ($75)

This outfit, from Fashion Truffles, is perfect for workdays when you want to look professional and be comfortable.  The soft jersey dress is relaxed and simple, while the blazer brings structure.  For a very professional office, this is a casual Friday look.  For a more relaxed office, it’s meeting attire.

This midi-length jersey dress from Modcloth is a good option.  Not feeling the crewneck?  This scoopneck Lysse dress is a great option.

This Topshop jacket is one of the best pieces I’ve seen this spring.  The layered collar is really chic, and the tapered waist gives a lovely shape.  Prefer a collared blazer?  This WHBM cutaway blazer is the perfect option.  Plus-size? Try this Vince Camuto jacket.

I love the blue hues in this long necklace, but the one in the photo has this light filigree look that’s also chic.  This $10 pendant from River Island fits the bill.

Lastly, these tortoise peep-toe pumps are a great neutral.  They give any outfit punch but match anything in your wardrobe.  Looking for something closed-toe?  Try this Vaneli pump.

    Love this outfit! If you had to sub in flats what style would you go with?

      I’d stick with a peeptoe and maybe shorten the dress a little. You risk looking stubby in a midi length and flats.

    This one is speaking to me… Thanks for the inspiration! Would be a great fit for my workplace, and I find that I get so much wear out of my most comfortable work clothes. 🙂

As you may have noticed, I do not have the most creative personal style. I am here for basics. But what I’m always looking for is basic-but, a piece of clothing that is basic but just a little different.

The Mondays: June 17, 2024

From the rooftop deck of my D.C. hotel I can see it all. The Capitol building, where I worked on and off for a decade. My first apartment where my three-doors-down neighbor was a young Senator Obama. My second apartment building where I bounced from unit-to-unit as my salary rose and I was finally able […]
