The inspiration for today’s tutorial comes from my own life. I am always looking for easy work outfits that will be stylish, trendy, and affordable. I’ve spent a lot of time and effort putting together the perfect looks and wanted to share with you guys some of my finds. So, today’s tutorial will teach you how to style work outfits with every piece being under $50.

Trendy work outfits 2021

Business in the front 

The first outfit is a very classy and classic business day look. I started with a Nordstrom bodysuit in black and paired it with Plaid Zara Pants. Both pieces cost $39. Next, I added a black $49 H&M blazer. I finished the look with some classic black pumps and a few tasteful accessories. These add ons are where you get creative.

Smart in suede 

Next, I went for a slightly lighter look with some $39 Suede leggings from Zara. I paired it with a V-Neck satin blouse from H&M for $29 and added some suede strappy heels to complete the look. Again, your accessories are your opportunity to add some personality. 

Simple work outfits

 Busy in black 

This Nordstrom dress might break that 50 dollar limit at $56, but I promise the extra cost is worth it. The dress is so flattering and so easy to match and style. I paired it with hot pink pumps for some extra color, but how you choose to style it is really up to you!

Getting creative 

For this next look, I wanted to go with something a little more creative. I started with a black satin wrap blouse for $45 and paired it with an H&M Cheetah Midi Skirt that cost $46. I then slipped on some black heeled sandals to complete the look. I also added a bold red lip and nails.

Let’s get edgy 

Time to get a little edgier! I started with a pair of $25 leather leggings. Next, I added a $14 Nordstrom square neckline bodysuit and a $34 H&M plaid blazer. I added some classic black pumps to finish and rocked some gold accessories. 

Easy work outfits

Pretty in polka dots 

This polka dot dress cost me $40 and is basically an entire outfit on its own. All I did was add a simple black and gold belt and some cute strappy heels. Your shoes can be white or black for a more conservative look, or they can be a chance to add a pop of color. If you’re feeling bold, you can even match your shoes to your lipstick. 

Business casual look

Business in beige 

For my next look, I started with a basic white Nordstrom square neckline bodysuit for $14. I then added a tan Zara coat and some Leith trousers - both for $49. I love Leith! They have a new $49 trouser every season and they always fit really well. Finally, I finished the look with a pair of light pink strappy pumps. 

Business dresses

Pretty in prints 

I love dresses, they are so easy to style and so quick to throw on. This time, I went with a $25 snake print dress from H&M. I bought it a couple of sizes too big and added a belt to make it more flattering. Next, I threw on a $49 black H&M blazer and completed the look with some heeled black booties. 

Multicolored business look

Mix and match 

For my last look, I started with a black racerback tank from Topshop for $18. I then added a pair of white trousers and a tan coat - both from Zara and both $49. For shoes, I chose a strappy black heel and then added some fun gold accessories to finish!

I hope this video helped you guys find some basic work outfits. Using your creativity will really help you here so don’t be afraid to work on some pieces you already own. Here’s to a fabulous 2021 and always looking great at work.
