I have not worked in a formal office in over a decade, so I am a little out of step with what exactly constitutes “work attire”, and with all offices asking for a different level of dress, it’s hard to pinpoint outfits that work for everyone. But I partnered with Nordstrom, who has something for every kind of industry, to pull together some looks that vary from boardroom to classroom.
This first sweater dress outfit could also be paired with a denim jacket and suede booties with no tights for a more dressed down look that would be adorable! The second look is actually a slip dress with a sweater over it. You could take the sweater off and add a black biker jacket to go from office to date night, easy!
In the first look, this wool coat is on-trend and works over jeans and a sweater on weekends too. And the skirt outfit below could work with a tucked in white or navy button down blouse as well for a dressier option.
The top outfit here is appropriate for any formal business office, but swap in distressed jeans and it skews immediately hipper. The sweater in the second outfit is perfect for just about anything (including super cold offices)- jeans, over workout leggings– you name it- super versatile and the kind of piece I’ll wear with everything all fall. Swap in black suede heels to dress this look up even more.
This top outfit employs a classic tweed jacket in a more casual-cool-Chanel way, but could also be paired with black pants no problem! And suede leggings are a sneaky way to feel like your wearing workout gear to work without looking sloppy!
How many of you work in formal work environments? How many of you can wear jeans to work? I’d be curious to know the breakdown!
