If somewhere between your career, family life, relationship goals or disaster, cooking, spinning, kids raising, solo cruising, business meetings, a billion coffes on a Monday before even 12 o’clock – you have beautiful headaches on the thought of spring office outfits aka ‘What the hell do I wear to work today?’ – this post is for you.
However, if you’re one of those people who wake up flalwess and can wear a paper bag to work, or just don’t stress over trivial stuff, we hate you. Okay… we don’t hate you, obviously. We actually LOVE your je m’en fiche‘ism and coolness regadless of the women’s professional clothing work code. Huh?
It’s 2017, is there still such a thing as business attire?
(that was I talking to myself)
Well… sure it is, we can’t bloody run the world in paper bags now can we? Women work clothes actually have never ever been this amazing. For the past couple of years THE business outfit has eveloved so much. More so, the idea of what to wear to work became more fun. While stresfull at the same time.
I know, it’s the irony that never fails us. Or me. #lifeisfunnylikethat
Women now wear to work whatever the hell we want tbh. Of course there are the office codes to live by, and the trends to do, and the IT girls to emulate or whatever, BUT in the midst of all this, us girls have learned to have much more fun with clothes in the ofice, than say 10 years ago.
Hence, we made leather jackets acceptable, flats, t-shirts, jeans. And you know what? That is fantastic, because at the end of the day it’s not what you wear but how you wear it.
7 Spring Office Outfits Ideas: How to dress to impress once the sun is out?
1. Work dresses.
I know, I know, groundbreaking NOT, nevertheless still valid. Work dresses are actually the perfect and easiest outfit for work on a random importante or not so importante spring day. The most appropriate work dresses have a good length, over the knee, or just above, business cut, shift style, shirt styles, pencil design, with sleeves, cap-sleeves, or even straps. The idea is to do proper wear and stay away form anything too racy like see-throughs, and very deep cleavages, and so on.
2. Ladies business suits.
Did somebody say 80s? POWER SUITS alert, and can I get an amen! Power-suits to women are like the cape to Superman, I swear. For instance, let’s take me, a random woman, chaotically living and loving. What do I do when I need to get my shit together? I wear an 80s inspired powersuit. And then, I rule the fucking world.
A pair of great tailored pants with a sleek blazer will do the trick as well. #trickingthesuit
3. Denim for work.
If you’re one of the lucky ones jeans can be your spring office outfits. Firstly pick a pair that’s classic, not ripped, and secondly mix it with a button down shirt, or a t-shirt and a blazer. Accessorise with heels and a structured big bag.
4. Feminine office looks.
Pastels are a massive trend when it comes to spring office outfits. Anywhere from nudes, to baby blues and dusted pinks all is in: wide legged trousers, high waists, silky blouses, blazers. It’s one of the most delicate sophisticated grown up styles ever.
5. Casual office wear.
Sometimes it’s Friday you know. Alongside the casual office day, there are those who work in a creative or a more relaxed environment. So for them it’s usually okay to wear something other than a suit or a classic office look. Casual looks with a dash of smart or polished are the petrfect choice: sweatshirts with skirts, flats, sneakers, t-shirts, leather jackets, jeans.
6. All black work outfit.
So what if it’s spring? All black is always a great office outfit idea and always looks incredible. Anything all black paired with some golden jewellery, a great pair of shoes and bag will look like a million bucks.
7. Colourful business outfit.
Yeah, it’s the opposite of black, cause you know… it is the hot season after all, and an explosion of colour is always a great idea. I love reds, oranges and blues. For an extra oomph you can pair strong solids together.
