I can’t think of a better way to kick off this Monday than with a little office outfit inspiration. During Spring and Summer, I tend to wear lots of dresses to the office. I love the professional look of a solid color sheath dress. I wanted to share a few of my favorite ways to take a basic office dress and give it a bit more personality. One of my favorite ways to add some flare to an outfit is through accessories. InStyle just launched a jewelry line on HSN, and the pieces are a super cute mix of fabulous statement items and everyday wear basics. A pearl necklace is a great touch for an office outfit. I love this over-sized pearl necklace to add more of a bold statement to the outfit. The collection also has a matching ring which adds a fun trendy feel to the overall look. Since these two pieces are more statement pieces, I kept the rest of my jewelry simple with silver studs and some of my everyday wear bangles. When adding statement jewelry to a work outfit, I typically opt for one maybe two pieces only. I decided to go with both the necklace and ring, because it was just super cute and the two pieces really work well together. If I were to add a bold earring to this look too, the pieces would be competing with each other.
Another fun way to add some flare to a basic dress is with colorful add ons. I think having a few colorful pumps in your closet are great for days when you want something different than a basic black or nude heel. These burgundy ones get so much wear in my office looks. They still have a professional look to them, but just give that little extra something to the outfit. By the way, they are on sale right now too!! I also love adding color with my purse. This Henri Bendel satchel has a very clean, sophisticated, and professional look to it. It comes in a wide array of colors, so you can find the one that best fits your personality. If you are going to mix colors, try to pick colors that work together. I love this green and burgundy color combo.
When you put all these pieces together, it really changes up that basic sheath dress to allow a bit more of your personality show. I love that the outfit still has that professional vibe for the office too. Alright, now let’s grab some coffee and tackle this week!
