It can be difficult to put together a nice outfit for work when it's hot and humid outside. We recommend stocking up your wardrobe with these 100% work-appropriate items and you will never be out of ideas for what to wear everyday! It'll save you time in the morning, too.
Spring is here! Dig up your favorite clothes out of storage and start mixing and matching, as you no longer have to hide yourself in thick long coats and chunky scarves that cover your pretty face. We have selected 10 items to dress you up from head to toe for an entire week.
We often hear that jeans are not welcome in strict offices, but nowadays you’ll find them in many work places. Match them with shirts and blouses to keep your look professional, yet casual.
Stilettos, what would we do without them? They are not the most comfortable choice as we all know, but they are so pretty, and they will bring your outfit to a whole new level of stylish and chic!
A pair of pure white sneakers will help you recover from the stiletto days. Your feet will love you and your style will still be nice and work-ready, with a touch of casual. Sounds perfect, right?
Women love bags. It’s a fact, but it is also a fact that you will forget something important in the “other bag”. So keeping one bag for the week is a good idea, as you won't have to spend 10 extra minutes every morning just to assure that your keys, your favorite lipstick, your cards…etc. are with you.
Let's start with some basic rules we are probably all familiar with already.
- Know the dress codes of your company. Observe the style of the company and its employees, and dress accordingly. If you work in finance you probably wouldn't dress the same way you would if you worked in the fashion industry!
- Find the right balance. Add your own original touches to an outfit, but keep it professional.
- Keep it simple. Combine two to three colors at most, and keep accessories minimal.
- Don't show too much. Elegance in the office is important. Save those plunging necklines and short skirts for the weekend!.
- Don't sacrifice comfort for fashion. The most important rule is to feel comfortable in what you are wearing.

The Winter Coat
Enhance your professional look with a coat that has a flattering cut and shape.
This is the ultimate basic that will take your look from bland to classy in the blink of an eye. Try it cropped, oversized, or long...each style will give you a different look!
Simple, easy to wear and feminine, the dress remains a must.
Opt for the classic, clean-cut button up shirt to match with many different styles of pants or skirts. If you want something that will transition well to your date nights, choose a light blouse. In winter, a knit turtleneck or sweater will keep your look professional and cozy.
Keep your pants and skirts streamlined and refined. They'll look nice, and might just end up being the most comfortable bottoms you own!
Be careful with how you select your shoes. It might not seem like it, but they can on their own mess up a look. Loafers and flats are the easiest choice, but if you can manage it heels will give you the ultimate look of a lady boss.
When you reach your mid-twenties, you might find your miniskirts, crop tops and bandage dresses pushed to the back of your closet while you desperately search for something nice to wear to a job interview or meeting. Transitioning from a younger, more casual wardrobe to one that is a bit more professional and adult can be tricky, but we've put together some basic essentials every grown-ass woman needs. Check them out below!
Replace any see-through, extra tight or cleavage heavy dresses with something more versatile. A good dress will take you from a busy day at the office to a classy date with the right accessories.
A blazer instantly makes your look more professional and put together. Say goodbye to your loose-fitting, oversized jackets and opt for something that is fitted just right on your shoulders and torso.
Blouses & Shirts
It's time to move on from crop tops and that t-shirt you have with the sassy quote on it! A nice blouse is great for any professional setting, and they have a loose yet more structured fit if you're feeling bloated but still want to look put together. A crop top won't be quite as forgiving...
We all love our worn-in jeans and leggings, and there's no reason to say good bye to them just yet. But there are many situations you'll encounter as an adult where you can't wear something so casual. A pair of fitted dress pants will instantly elevate your outfit, and are the perfect alternative for any occasion where jeans just aren't appropriate.
Donate sparkly handbags, bags covered in brand logos/names, shapeless backpacks and tote bags to a teenage girl in need. It's now time for a chic, timeless bag you'll own for years and can fit all of your essentials in.
Make some room among your sneakers, combat boots and those sky-high heels you bought for clubbing for more professional, classic footwear that won't get you a weird look at the office.
"Ame-Caj," a cute combination of the words "American Casual" is a popular style found throughout Asia, particularly in Korea and Japan. If you live in China, you're also sure to have seen a cute girl wearing it on the streets.
The American influence comes from traditional workwear: overalls, newsboy caps and durable jackets. It's a hip, unisex style suitable for winter as it encompasses the use of many layers and covers a lot of skin.
Give it a try today and see what types of looks you can create!
