I’ve styled some workplace outfits for you to give you a bit of inspiration when you’re not sure what to wear for work. The five outfits are according to the days of the week because that’s just how my mind works. Pretty much everything is semi-casual - you can dress it up, you can dress it down, depending on your workplace dress code.

These faux leather pants yell “I’m here and I’m ready for business.” I’ve paired them with a cream sweater and a pair of cream converses. The look is casual, but the leather pants keep it looking suave. A tote bag is an excellent addition to this look, you can throw in your laptop and planner, and you’re good to go.

Basic work outfits


The ruffle sleeves of this top give an understated elegance to an otherwise simple outfit. As with the Monday outfit, I’ve used a tote bag to accessorize.

On Wednesdays we wear pink! I love this pale pink jacket, it’s smart, sophisticated, and super comfy. A headband and a leather handbag make this look polished and office-worthy.

Work outfit style


The flared houndstooth pants that I’m wearing here have a special place in my heart. They make so much of a statement that all I’ve needed to pair them with is a simple black vest and a denim jacket. The black, white, and blue going on in this outfit all work really well together.

This outfit is a classic example of less is more, just a plain white tee, a pair of beige pants, and a simple necklace to accessorize—a gorgeous, straightforward look.

That’s a wrap! Five casual looks that you can wear for work. If your workplace is a bit more formal or you have face-to-face meetings, you can easily dress these outfits up by switching the accessories for something a bit more high-class.
