Monday Outfit: Chic Business Casual
Dec 13, 2021
Dressing for a business casual office is uncharted territory for me. I wake up, want to put on a suit and can’t. Jeans are also a bit of a minefield, since all the guys in the office wear khakis. So let’s see if we can’t find our way through this together. Maybe with some white denim…
This outfit blends denim into the outfit in a way that feels chic (and maybe a little glamorous?) and more dressed up. So here’s how we build this outfit.
Blazer. A great black blazer is a wardrobe staple. Banana Republic’s gold-button blazer is my current favorite. If you want something a little sleeker, try this wool flannel blazer from J.Crew or this one from Cuyana.
Sweater. Sadly, I couldn’t find a turtleneck sweater with that wonderful waffle pattern on it. Instead, I chose this ribbed cashmere turtleneck from Banana Republic. I love the voluminous neckline. For a steal, try this Everlane turtleneck.
Shoes. Slingbacks are in right now. Since everyone has switched to flats, this is a way to make flats feel more special. These Jack Rogers are a delicate, sleek example. The Danica slingback is also a great choice. Wide feet? Try these ASOS flats.
Accessories. This Rachel Zoe bag is awesome. I love the olive color with the black and white color palette. I adore the tassel detail and the minimalist hardware. And at <$30, it’s a great buy.
