Guys! I’ve worked so hard on getting this post to you! Many of us work a full-time job and some need a little inspiration to show their inner #BOSSBABE. I work in an office and it’s business casual but some days are more formal than others (when visiting a customer, etc). I put together 5 outfits just for you for 5 days of work. These are easy and versatile, ranging from minimalist to total boss babe chic. Whether you’re in a corporate job or even a teacher, you deserve to feel confident!
Outfit #1 Basics
Staples in your closet are black slacks, you can never have too many, a basic cotton button down blouse and a classic pair of black pumps. Believe it or not, I thrifted my slacks here for $3.99 and the top was on sale from H&M last fall for $17. I found the heels at TJ Maxx for $20. Here are similar, affordable options for the pants, blouse, and shoes. The shirt and pants can easily be found at a thrift store. I recommend ThredUp! Ladies, tuck in those shirts. It really gives that professional look and accentuates your waist. If you’re short, like me, it also makes you look taller.
Outfit #2 Turtle Neck & Prints
These are not slacks, they are leggings! Yes, you heard that right. I wore these to work the other day and got so many compliments. I love the print and love that they are leggings! I recently got these from Loft during one of their sales for $30. They are awesome quality too. The sweater is from Loft too but I got it last winter. It is honestly my go-to store for work wear! I always wait for a good sale, that means when the items on sale plus an additional percent off. They often do this, you just have to check out their site. Here is a similar turtleneck and these are so versatile! Let me go ahead and point out that mules are my all new favorite obsession of flats. I got these from Amazon but they are everywhere! Here are some from Target.
Outfit #3 Chiffon
Army green is one of my favorite colors this year and this one is just perfect. I found a similar one from Loft that is on sale! These are the same slacks as earlier, obviously. Again ladies, tuck in that shirt! Carry that power with you and be your own boss babe. I just love the way a tucked in shirt looks. I paired this outfit with these super cute leopard print mules from the Circus line by Sam Edelman. For $34.99, I just couldn’t resist and they’re my first pair of print shoes! You could also change it and wear those black pumps.
Outfit #4 Denim & Suede
Guys! I AM OBSESSED with this vest! OH. MY. GOSH. It’s the ‘Cassidy Vest‘ from a local boutique in North Carolina called BohoBlu. They have a ton of trendy and affordable pieces! The suede is such good quality, I could probably wear it every day. It also comes in black! Ugh, I am so tempted to order it but SELF-CONTROL girl! Anyways, gosh how cute does it look with a denim shirt? It’s the perfect fall combo! I am in love. I just paired it with a pair of skinny jeans, cause I can wear them in my office, and my favorite black ankle booties. I talked about them here in a previous post! You can wear this not only to work but anything after!
Outfit #5 Classic Black
YAS Honey! I saved the best for last (in my opinion). I love all black. Like most, I have a ton of black in my wardrobe and it’s always what I gravitate to when picking out a piece. My friend and I were like “oh my gosh” when I tried this look on. Black is the easiest color to transition into work wear because it is so versatile. You already know about the ‘Cassidy Vest’ but these suede boots are just ugh! I bought these bad girls two years ago from Kmart for $30. Here’s two similar pair not heeled and these have a heel. Perfectly paired with a black blouse.
*Does finger snap* I was so excited to put this post together for you all. I love each of these outfits uniquely and I hope that it inspires you to just bring your best forward in the workforce. Make yourself stand out from the others and scream confidence when you walk into a room. You are your own boss babe. Now go kill the game and show me your best looks!
