Every season, one particular reason why we update our wardrobe is to update our work outfits. Now that it´s spring, we need to repurpose what we already have in our closet and add some key pieces that will transition the what we call, already-proven outfits, into of-the-moment looks.
Do you have a classic flared white pants? How about a pair of always reliable black-striped slacks or an ever-flattering A-line skirt? Or do you have a maxi skirt which for ages you´ve never figured out how to wear to work? If you have these very pieces, then you only need little to create trendy but work appropriate outfits.
Nanette Leopore, the fashion designer who is known for her feminine style and fine detailing, gives us great inspirations for a smart and easy-to-wear work outfits for spring.
Work Outfit for Spring – White Pants
This look is all about creating a pop of color. Bright colors like green are cool for spring and summer. Get a really rich green top to wear tucked-in with a white flared or bell-bottom pants. We love it more if the pants are high waist. Lengthen your silhouette by adding high heels.
Work Outfit for Spring – Colorblock
Did you ever think colorblocking isn´t safe for work? Well, you don´t need to look like a rainbow if you´re to maintain professionalism. Stick to only two color tones. A great example is this pink and orange combo. Layer over your girly pink sundress a smart orange trench, preferably single-breasted, then slip into statement nude pumps and you´re done. You can also put a hand on a red coat.
Work Outfit for Spring – Contrast Prints
Wearing clashing prints is a trend that has challenged my inherited (from my mom and aunts) good old style mantra, never wear prints with prints. But boy, aren´t we loving this style evolution? And the best thing to celebrate about this is, you can wear contrast prints even to work! A polka dot jacket over a printed top, which top is tucked in a dark-colored A-line skirt, with sexy peep-toe pumps. The neutral skirt is what balances the prints.
Work Outfit for Spring – Maxi Skirt
Many girls were oozing about our tips – how to wear maxi skirts to work. Why? Because while we love maxi skirts, we´re also anxious of wearing a costume! But Nanette Leopore gives us a new idea on wearing printed maxi skirt, wear a plain top that matches your skirt and pull everything together with a bold, green closed jacket with a slim belt accent. Everything is really put together.
Work Outfit for Spring – Tribal Print
If you´re working on a creative environment, or if you´re office gives Free Fridays, then wearing tribal print to work is something worth a try. Update your black slacks by pairing with it a relaxed but respectable tribal print top, tribal necklace, and gorgeous boots.
