Imagine this scenario, it’s 7 in the morning, and you’re in a rush, pulling out all your clothes from the wardrobe in a state of panic. You grumble and reach the phase: I’ve got nothing to wear to the office. If this sounds familiar, worry not. JCPenney brings you a wide selection of workwear-appropriate outfits to streamline your morning routine. From practical pants and power suits to dresses, find styles that can be easily mixed and matched.
So, what are you waiting for? Scroll down to discover outfits that simplify your wardrobe and take you to the office no matter the dress code.
Create An Effortless Power Suit
The key to creating a power suit is picking one in your favorite neutral color. Consider a plain fabric with no embellishments to keep things simple. You can pull it off easily with a crisp white shirt that works perfectly fine as separates too. For instance, a black jacket can be worn with trousers or jeans depending on your office dress code. Both have the power to exude a sophisticated appeal. Alternatively, go for gray or blue suits, which can help you create an outfit when you’re in a mad dash to reach the office.
Dresses That Will Take You Beyond Your Desk
Turns out, the once considered boring long-sleeve printed dresses are now your go-to attire for the office. An elegant, printed dress can pretty much be worn anywhere and anytime without raising eyebrows. For instance, a black printed dress can be paired with a classic white sneaker or pumps. You could also experiment with lighter hues if your office is lenient on the dress code. Consider dresses that fall just below your knee and try avoiding narrow cuts. You can also combine your dress with a blazer for a polished look.
Trousers That Take You Around
If you have an action-packed scheduled workday, trousers are your secret weapon to get through. Go for relaxed fit trousers that can be effortlessly put together beyond the office realm as well. For example, pick neutral or monochromatic colors such as black or gray that can be mixed and matched with your existing wardrobe. They can be paired with any neutral-colored shirt or a blouse. Complete your look with a pair of sneakers or pumps for an elegant look.
A crisp white shirt can definitely take you places, but it can get a little overdone. Also, it can sometimes get a little too tedious to spend time over the ironing board. Consider flowy shirts that can be easily managed, like polyester, sateen, or silk. To break the monotony, go for dark floral prints or hit the classic route with stripes in subtle colors. Liven up your day with colors like pink or blue.
Skirts That Go with Everything
Office wear skirt styles have broken the cliché compartmentalization of being boring in plain old solid colors. Although solids make a sensible choice as they are easy to put together, it’s time to experiment. Indulge your creative side by considering styles in on-trend colors and silhouettes that can also work for weekends. Like, go for a pleated skirt with a blazer and a silk shirt when you head to the office, ditch the blazer for after-office drinks, or when Saturday arrives, pair the skirt with a T-shirt and cute sneakers.
