Office Appropriate Looks

What to Wear Nine to Five.
Sometimes it is difficult to choose what to wear every single day of the work week. Especially when we are transitioning into a new season, this can be a bit daunting. That is why I've outlined a few work ready items for each day of the week that can work right now while the weather is not too chilly yet not  summer weather either. 

Monday Morning Meeting:
The Patterned Pant

This is a super trendy look right now that can definitely work for the office--if paired with the right accessories. Because the pants are a bit 'out there', opt for a neutral blazer or a two-toned one like Olivia Palermo above. Make sure the pant is cropped and hits just above your ankle bone. 
Super steal can be found here.

Tuesday Meeting With Clients:
Overcoat with Flare

Need to run out of the office to grab coffee or lunch with a client? Well this amazing number is perfect to throw on over your work blouse and into the cold weather. The length of it makes it super edgy and classy at the same time. It can be paired with tailored slacks or a pencil skirt with tights and heels. Because of the neutral colors, pair it with bright accessories like a red bag or plum colored pumps. 

Wednesday Presentation to the Boss:
Classic Suit

This classic Banana Republic suit is retro with a twist. I would pair it with a leather burgundy skinny belt with some colored heels. Just because the suit may be classic and innocent, doesn't mean your accessories have to be. 

Thursday Business Trip:
Taking the Right Accessories

These accessories are essential when travelling on business trips or to various work related destinations. Flats are important to store in your bag if there's a lot of walking to do (ie running to catch your flight). Also, this trendy wallet crafted by Tiffany&Co is the perfect accessory for storing your essentials. 

Casual Friday:
Casual, but not too casual

Allowed to wear jeans on Friday? Great, but make sure they are still work appropriate. Opt for a darker wash and pair them with a boyfriend blazer and a tucked in blouse. A good pair of work jeans are these MiH pair that can be found here.
