Looking for some easy office clothes that allow you to look great without a lot of drama and fuss? You know, like on those days when you’ve been up all night with a sick kid and you’ve still got a full day of back-to-back meetings?
With a little preparation, you can be ready for anything and still look great on a moment’s notice. Here are some sure-fire business wear options:
A classic two-piece suit in a neutral color can literally take you anywhere you want to go. It’s what to wear to job interviews, to speak in front of groups, and to lend gravitas whenever you need it. P.S. If it’s dark, you can also wear it to funerals.
Appropriate for business casual office wear, a classic safari jacket paired with either a pencil skirt or flat front pants will still give you credibility in a chic yet casual way. Opt for classic styling over trendy details.
Easy yet sophisticated, a wrap dress will give you elegance while also doing nice things for your figure. The diagonal line visually slims and lengthens the torso, making heavy girls look slimmer, busty girls look less chesty, and petite girls look taller. About the only figure it doesn’t look right on is the tall, slender, small-busted model-types — because it makes them look taller, thinner, and less busty.
Wearing a simple knit shell with a matching cardigan has been popular since the 1930’s because it looks great and is super easy to wear. Pair it with a skirt or trousers for a polished business casual look.
A crisp shirtdress, like a beautiful wrap dress, can be business appropriate in an instant. Accessorize according to your office dress code. More formal? Try hosiery and pumps. More casual? Try a wide belt, matching tights, and knee-high boots.
Looking great for work doesn’t have to be hard if you plan properly and build a business wardrobe that works for your particular situation. With “go to: pieces like these in your closet, you can look great and “business appropriate” any day of the week.
