Frumpy pants, stuffy suits, shoulder pads, and uncomfortable high heels. Yuck!
Office style often gets a bad rap, bringing to mind visions of the worst fitting, most uncomfortable clothes all in the name of professionalism. But no more, Vinnie girls!
In our world, your work wardrobe can actually be fun, unique and totally you, while still being appropriate for the office!
Today we thought it would be fun to share some of our favorite ways to bring new life to your work wardrobe. The best part? A lot of these ideas may involve pieces you already own!
Ready to get started? Let us know what your favorite tips and pieces are in the comments below.
1. Mix in a funky dress
The easiest way to upgrade your work wardrobe is by adding a fun statement dress into your weekly lineup! These dresses can be worn alone, or paired with tights, cardigans, booties, and all your other favorite accessories to create a look that's all your own! Two of our current favorites? Our Teagan Dress and the gorgeous Finley Dress.
2. Add a fun pop with statement pants
Forget your basic black and navy. Bring an instant dose of life to your office basics by pairing your everyday tops with a colorful statement pant! Striped, cropped, belted or pastel, you can't go wrong with pieces like our Lawson Pants or Colby Pants.
3. Skirting the issue
Skirts are one of the most underappreciated pieces in every woman's closet! Don't be afraid to try pairing a skirt with your favorite graphic tee and a blazer, or with a cute camisole and a cardigan thrown over the top! Don't own a skirt you love? Try this Cara Leopard Skirt or the super versatile Orla Skirt.
4. Stock up on neutral accessories
The last thing you want to worry about when creating a new look is whether or not you have the accessories to match! It's always smart to have some timeless, neutral accessories on hand that pair well with everything you own. Need to stock up? Our gorgeous Arden Flats are only $28, and this leather Thatcher Tote Bag will fit your laptop perfectly.
5. Say yes to oversized pieces
The cornerstone of every professional wardrobe is probably the classic button-up shirt. So why not make yours fun and trendy, just like you? We love rocking a button up with a cute oversized fit and unique details. Case in point, this Britton Top in Brick or the Harper Top.
