Fashion Pro: How to Dress for the Office—Without Sacrificing Style

Filed under Fashion Look Your Best on Apr 05 13 by

We often equate “work attire” with “boring”—but every professional fashionista knows that you don’t have to wear dull clothes to look put together for the office! Here are our favorite “office fashions” from some of our talented guest bloggers. These clever outfits are sure to inspire!


Layer a collared shirt under your favorite LBD and a crisp khaki blazer over it for a look that’s fresh, but still subdued. Erika R. of Lark and Lace adds a black ribbon hairband as the perfect finishing touch.



Natalie L. of Urban Anthropology perfectly pairs a dark green blazer with a cheetah-printed pencil skirt. This look is definitely tailored and polished, but the bright color and the patterned skirt showcase her personal style.



If your workplace is a bit more casual (so many of them are nowadays!), this cardigan-pencil skirt combo is the way to go. Sarah B. of Think Twice Style isn’t afraid to wear three bold colors together! The flats are cute and comfortable, and the belt pulls it all together and shows off her waist.



I’m in love with this soothing color combination worn by Kenzie of Kenzie Faith! The yellow skirt and pale top look great together, and the blazer is left open to show off the pretty ruffles.



Here are two great looks from our style columnist and Teatime Thoughts blogger, Candice H. The look on the left is perfect—just add a blazer, if you desire, for an extra hint of professionalism. On the right, she layers a dress with a skirt and adds a long black blazer to complete the outfit.


How do you show off your personal style at work?
