WHAT TO WEAR TO WORK: OUTFIT IDEAS FOR THE OFFICE

One thing I get asked a lot on my Instagram is for work wear outfit ideas.

Although I work for myself now, for years I was office based and really found a style that worked for me.

Being meeting-ready does not mean suit smart (well, for my industry anyway!), but I do think there’s ways to look ‘put together’ without being dressed like you’re going to a 1980’s board meeting.

Autumn and winter are probably my fave workwear seasons to dress for, so here’s some smart/casual outfits perfect for the next few months.

Disclaimer: there are a lot of boots featured! If you like any of the pieces, just click on the image to shop direct.

 

1 | HOW TO STYLE LEATHER TROUSERS FOR WORK

It might seem a bit ‘out there’ to some, but honestly faux leather trousers are one of my work wear staples.

Just throw on a smart blazer, heeled shoe boots and a crisp white tee and you’re good to go!

2 | HOW TO STYLE A JUMPER DRESS FOR WORK

Okay so I’m not really a tights kinda gal – I have been known to still embrace bare legs in December, but each to their own!

To wear a jumper dress, again I think heeled shoe boots dress it up and a long coat looks chic and is still practical for the commute.

If you really feel you need extra warmth, go for tights with some texture like this cute polka dot style.

3 | HOW TO STYLE A PLEATED SKIRT FOR THE OFFICE

Seriously, if you don’t have a pleated midi skirt, go get one.

They’re super versatile (casual it up with trainers or studded flat boots) and it looks perfect to go from office to meetings to after work drinks.

Wear with a slightly cropped jumper for a cosy, chic look.

4 | HOW TO STYLE FLARED TROUSERS FOR WORK

When I say ‘flared trousers’, you might be running in the opposite direction, but stay with me.
This was one of my favourite outfits last winter, wearing a simple black flared trouser with a black knit, black pointed boots and a long coat.
Sometimes it’s the simplest outfits that work best – trust me!

5 | HOW TO STYLE A KNITTED SKIRT FOR WORK

I mean, can work style get any cosier with a knitted skirt?!
Best saved for when the temperatures are seriously low, I love the look of pairing this with a crop jumper, heeled boots and a good belt to bring it all together.
If your office’s heating would make you melt wearing this, swap the jumper for a plain t-shirt and wear with a blazer – sorted!
