Thinking about what to wear to work can feel like a job itself. To help, we’ve combed the web and put together 17 spot-on combinations for your work, from lawyer to flower shop owner.
Here’s the Deal:
1. THE FINANCIAL ANALYST
Sharp tailoring in classic black and white shows you mean business, while feminine accessories remind people that you aren’t a member of the boy’s club.
2. THE PUBLICIST
When a 9-to-5 includes mingling with chic clients, it’s important to look professional, but trendy. Pick one boldly printed piece and anchor it with more muted accessories.
3. THE CHEF
For a profession that requires constantly being on your feet, comfort is key. Cropped pants will help you stay cool in the kitchen, and flats are a no-brainer, especially a pair with sneaker technology. Add some spice with a pair of sparkling studs.
4. THE DESIGNER
Various prints and fabrics are sure to inspire, while two bags ensure that sketchbook, iPad, and personal pieces stay organized.
5. THE LAWYER
Build your own suit out of polished separates for a style that’s fresh, but still serious enough for the courtroom. Pass on loud accessories, opting for souped up basics like double-strap Mary Janes and rose gold earrings.
6. THE BOUTIQUE OWNER
When you own a shop, you’re your own best billboard. Make sure potential customers notice you in a bold dress, killer heels, and perfect accessories.
7. THE NANNY
Don’t let playground duty kill your fashionable leanings. Pick pieces that aren’t encumbering should you need to run after a little one, but will still make a stylish employer proud. Shop high street, too, since your duds are in constant danger of grubby fingers and sticky snack-time.
8. THE MUSIC EXEC
Leather pants feel rock-n-roll, and a cropped cut makes for optimal shoe flashing. Mix in a quirky tee, professional blazer, and small accessories to go from dinner to concert to after-party in a flash.
9. THE THERAPIST
A classic shift dress with accessories in muted tones are soothing picks for a profession that often deals with dramatics.
10. THE DENTIST
Look chic under a lab coat by pairing comfortable basics with colorful flats and chunky jewelry that won’t dangle anywhere near your patients’ chompers.
11. THE EVENT PLANNER
A sophisticated full skirt still feels young when paired with neon and a bold collar necklace. Finish it off with a bag that’s large enough to fit copious amounts of guest lists, seating charts, and more.
12. THE FLORIST
Sensible styles like a cross-body bag and flat boots make running to the flower market easy work, while delicate jewelry and a wide-brimmed hat add an extra touch of style.
13. THE BANKER
Who said finance had to be boring? Neutral pieces with interesting details and silhouettes are office appropriate, yet fashion forward.
14. THE FASHION EDITOR
As the maxim goes, you can always tell a fashion editor by her shoes, and, in most cases, the bolder, the better. Pair statement heels with black basics, a bright bag, and a killer, top-it-all-off blazer.
15. THE GALLERIST
Bold color blocking makes for a strong look, but won’t end up distracting from the works of art you’re surrounded by. Pick simple black accessories to really frame the look.
16. THE TEACHER
Look for wallet-friendly basics that won’t feel too formal in the classroom or cause stress if there’s a crayon mishap. Splash out on a chic pair of shoes that can be worn at work and in your personal time, too.
17. THE DOCTOR
Practical flats and minimal jewelry are essential for an MD’s busy day, while bright pants provide a pop of color.
Those are some tips to wear your outfit at your work that makes you fashionable every day. Be your office day, the most beautiful and fashionable day.
