10 Work Outfits To Spice Up Your 8-5

July 9, 2018


Erin Schrader

It’s a request we hear all of the time – more work outfits, please! I love that we have so many hardworking women in our community who want to look put together, yet comfortable and of course, always cute while at the office [or wherever your workplace resides]. Today we’ve rounded up 10 outfits that you can wear to work right now – all in stock and ready for you to shop! I love venturing outside of the traditional black work pants and adding in some fun prints and colors whenever possible. Hopefully you’ll spot an outfit or two that you can recreate while being the boss that you are.

Before we dive in, let’s get the logistics out of the way to make this process easier on you! For sizing reference, I am 5’4, 125 lbs on a good day, typically a 2 in tops/dresses and 26 in jeans/pants with a preferred inseam of 26-28 inches. Bra size is 30DDD [I get it from my momma]. Hopefully, this helps when determining what size you’d need. Also, feel free to follow along here for daily outfits and check out this Pinterest board where you can also get some ideas! Which reminds me, you can pin any of these looks below to save for future reference! Simply click on the links below and you will be taken directly to the retailer where you can shop! Alright, fellow “I like to get dressed” friends, let’s begin!
