Too often we walk into a coffee shop before work, line out of the door with professionals doing the same, only to notice that everyone rocks a pretty similar work-uniform. Women are clad in a typical (boring) navy skirt suit or the classic office style hiccup: black trousers a misfitting blazer, rolling brief case in tow, and no personality whatsoever. And like the infamous joker in Batman we continuously ask ourselves, “why so serious?”

Now you’re the best judge of what will fly with the boss, but we’re here to remind you that even corporate workwear doesn’t have to be so mundane. Add some personality and a dash of fun {even sexy!} to your normal rotation. Just take it from these ladies who know a thing or two about how to put together a striking look – one that is far from boring and means nothing but business! Ladies, #werk!

We love these almost snakeskin printed trousers. Switch up your pants from solids to print and go wide!

Make an entrance and exit with garment details that make a statement like this blouse with bold contrast stitching and billowing cuffs.

Pair fresh white pumps with a sexy navy suit instead of your classic black – the look feels modern and fashion forward.

Throw an oversized blazer over a flowy dress while we still have warm days and cooler nights in the forecast. Rolls those sleeves for a little added detail.

Instead of a skirt suit, consider a short suit! An unbuttoned button on your blouse and glamorous bag keeps this from looking too masculine.

Bell bottoms, bell bottoms, bell bottoms. If you haven’t hopped on the resurrected trend, the extra fabric is perfect for fall. We also love a good neck handkerchief!

What do you think? Are you ready to take your office wear from drab to fab? We certainly are left inspired to do so!

  1. Unfortunately, there is noooo way I could get away with this much cleavage at work. I love the belted blazer though – a fun way to inject some drama in an otherwise basic piece.
