5 Smart Casual Workwear Pieces to Buy Now
One Piece Dress. Dresses are so easy to get up and throw on in the morning, you need as many as you can find. Isn’t this color gorgeous? It’s soft enough to fit into any professional environment, but ever so feminine at the same time. The cut of this dress is very flattering too.
Blouse. This simple white blouse is incredibly simple, but I’ve been amazed at how tough it is to find a good white blouse when I need it. I’ve learned, when I see it, buy it.
Skirt. Skirts are the best way to introduce a bold pattern. It balances out an outfit without being too bold. Isn’t this skirt totally eccentric and yet inspiring at the same time? It’s like wearing the colors of a rustic rainbow. I like to think of it as a classy kind of boho chic.
Suit Jacket, Pants. Don’t be afraid of a blue suit. It’s actually nice to add in a blue suit when all you wear is black. If you’re working in an industry that requires very formal work attire, this is a great way to mix it up. This specific suit is made of stretch wool, which is one of the best suit materials you’ll find for it’s breathable quality.
Kitten Heels. I love a good kitten heel for work. They tend to be more comfortable than a higher heels, which is good for the heavy wearing a workwear heel will get. This heel is in a lovely nude. Black is over-powering and nude is a nice way to deviate from the norm, while still staying formal.
