Let’s face it — going to work can be a drag sometimes. Finding the motivation to get out of bed on a Monday morning after an eventful weekend can be tough. Just because your job may not be the most fun part of your day or week, though, doesn’t mean your wardrobe has to suffer, too. Check out this ahhh-mazing business casual outfit builder of the week and take those boring work clothes from drab to fab!
1. Basic White Tank
Let’s just get started with the basics. Regardless of if a blouse requires an undershirt or not, it’s always smart to own a couple basic white tanks for work and “play” functions. Most business casual blouses do, however, need undershirts because the delicate nature of the material sometimes makes them a little sheer. Additionally, and undershirt will really make the colors in the shirt *pop*! So starting with a basic white tank is a great “blank slate” for every business casual outfit.
2. Lightweight Printed Blouse
Finding work wear for the summer can be difficult, but sticking to lightweight blouses in fun summery prints (like this one!) is the key to balancing a cool yet sophisticated look.
3. Ponte Pants
They’re everyone’s favorite pants for a reason!! If you don’t already own a pair of the comfiest pants in the world, ponte pants, you’re missing out on what should be a key element in every working women’s wardrobe. Made of stretchy yet structured material, ponte pants are the perfect bottoms for a business casual look because they allow for 100% comfort and 200% style. You’ll be able to easily wear these weekly in your business casual wardrobe. But as an extra bonus, you’ll wear these pants during your next girls night out!
4. Footwear: Flats & Wedges
As you build the perfect #workfit, never forget to give your feet the attention they deserve! Choosing between wedges and flats really depends on your personal preferences and how much activity your job requires, but both ensure fashion and functionality for your lil’ piggies.
5. Statement Earrings
Pulling the entire outfit together is as easy as throwing on a bright pair of statement earrings to add just enough oomph and color to your ensemble! These bold coral earrings are a great example — they really pop when paired with a more neutral outfit!
