Office Outfit Ideas Inspired by the Catwalk
When we are getting ready for another day at work, our minds are racing with thoughts on meetings, projects, and upcoming deadlines. In the meantime, we are tasked with selecting the right ensemble, not just to get through the day, but to do it with confidence. Regardless of how fashion-forward you are or how trendy your wardrobe is, there will always be days (or even weeklong stretches) wherein you just stare at your closet, completely clueless of what you should mix and match.
That being said, we’ve rounded up stylish office outfit ideas that will make outfit planning in the morning, or the night before, a breeze. Aside from being comfortable, the outfits we’ve listed will let you be taken seriously at work and feel confident at the same time. Make your mornings even a tad bit easier by scrolling down now.
Tall boots with long dresses that are hanging over them are always an excellent idea. If you don’t have to bring a handful of essentials stuffed in a handbag, this OOTD will be a great choice as it’s best paired with a clutch or mini top-handle bag (preferably the same color as your boots).
Pumps, Relaxed Jeans, and Blouse
Whether you are running to different meetings around town or just sitting at your desk all day, your comfort is key in having a good workday. This is where a pair of tailored yet relaxed jeans come in. In order to make sure it is both style-savvy and work-appropriate, wear on-trend heels and a printed blouse. Don’t forget to accessorize with understated jewelry to complete your look.
Blazer and Cropped Jeans with Pops of Color
Unique, eye-catching basics are an oxymoron; however, they actually exist. Take an oversized black blazer and make it complement a half-zip turtleneck. Your outfit will do an amazing job at transitioning cropped white jeans into the new season. Introduce pops of color in your handbag or shoes to add some personality into your office look.
Heels, Black Jeans, and a Midi Dress
So, you were only able to wear your trendy midi dress once this season? Update it by layering the piece over your favorite pair of pants. Raw-hem ripped black jeans against a flowy midi dress are a surefire way to turn heads!
Wide-Legged Trousers and Turtlenecks
This outfit looks so comfortable that you can live in it. It also happens to be trendy and polished, suitable for an office. A sweater with warm camel tones will keep an outfit grounded while pants in a vivid color will fill boardrooms with optimism. A wide-leg silhouette is best as it will be insanely flattering. Also, you can’t ever go wrong with a half-tuck. Refine your aesthetic further by finishing with a pair of dangling or sculptural earrings.
Pantsuits and Statement Shoes
Business and pleasure will join forces in a quirky, vibrant pantsuit. Incorporate playful pastels, as well as a different shade of cheerful colors to keep things light. The clean, classic cut will also ensure your outfit is suitable for the setting. Pantsuits give a modern twist to traditional pieces.
Playful Slingbacks, Midi Skirts, and Sweaters
This is probably our favorite among all outfit ideas we’ve just mentioned. A sweater, midi skirt with playful slingbacks can be flattering to any body shape, plus the outfit is reliable and easy to put together. Don’t be scared to try your own spin. You might want to give an architectural skirt a try with an organically shaped sweater. With playful, polka-dotted heels, you will look stylish and wow an entire sea of black-and-white.
Sock Boots, Relaxed Jeans, and Bold Jumpers
Instead of being creative with interesting fabric and shapes in quiet and solid tones, this outfit idea for work is the exact opposite. Go for bolder colors but with classic styles and silhouettes. Sock boots, a sweater, a pair of jeans, and a belt – that’s what our dreams for office outfit are made of.
Khaki Bottoms, Textured Pumps, and Solid Tops
Aside from denim, you can also try out khaki for the office as it’s versatile and easy to wear. There is just something about this camel-hued utility piece that makes it look a bit more refined. As it leans a bit on being casual, pair a khaki with a dark-colored top and pair of heels with luxe materials. Velvet pumps with details in gold will do the job perfectly.
