While some of you may be taking the week off due to the midweek Fourth of July holiday, not all of us will be so lucky. That said, for all of you finishing up your weekend and preparing for the week ahead, I am here with my Sunday evening series to help you figure out what you are going to wear tomorrow. Looking for some help with your work outfits? You’ve come to the right place.
Below are three styled looks using pieces in the stores now. While you may not be able to use these exact pieces, unless you happen to own them already, you may have something similar in your closet. Plus, you can dog ear some of the styles featured for your own future shopping outings and, as a bonus, you will already have some ideas on how to style them.
Okay, onto the looks!
Work Outfits for Monday Morning
I chose this summery work look by Tahari, not only because I love Tahari for work, but also because this classic shirtdress is a professional way to wear coral to the office. To keep it understated, I chose grey shoes and accessories. Grey is a softer alternative to black that can work all year round.
If color isn’t your thing or if your office environment is super conservative, a stylish solution is to choose pieces that have interesting shapes or cuts in neutral colors. Here, instead of a boring suit, I chose a piece from Nordstrom that works for summer but isn’t basic. Next, I paired it with a pair of versatile shoes that can be worn with black, or shades of tan, and a nude handbag with upscale details and, lastly, a fun necklace in ivory. The colors may be understated but the style definitely isn’t.
In an effort to embrace color at work, you may have purchased a colorful skirt, like this one by J.Crew. However, you are now left confused as to how to wear it. Here, I chose to color block this pink skirt by using the colors found in the necklace above. I begin with green, a versatile color that matches everything, and work back to the pink skirt and, finally, the whole outfit is finished off with bright blue. Remember, when color blocking at home, it is always helpful to reference the colors found in a print or a piece of jewelry as a guide for the finished look.
