Depending on your office environment, workwear can mean many different things. In our August / September issue Verily proves that corporate doesn’t have to mean stuffy and home office doesn’t necessarily mean pajama pants. With the help of Style blogger, Brynn Elliot Watkins, Verily features inspiration for those of us in a corporate, education, creative, or at-home setting. Here we’ve rounded up a few more looks to keep dressing for the work day interesting!
Classic pieces like a button down and trousers exude professionalism. Stick with those silhouettes, but add your own twist. We mixed a black and white printed button down with black pants and pointy-toed heels for a look that says serious and stylish.
Different variations on a theme will make for easy dressing each morning and comfort throughout the day. Liven up basics with texture, pattern, and color play—a dotted sweater and cobalt pencil skirt make a perfect match with the always-comfortable and chic suede Oxford shoe.
Since a creative field lacks expectations on what to wear, there is a world of opportunity to celebrate your personal style. We love this bohemian floral dress paired with red pumps that balances a free spirit and hard-working attitude.
Working from home can vary day to day, and in order to maximize time and efficiency, the jeans-and-a-t-shirt look is our friend. Add interest to your basics with a few sartorial updates, like a printed tunic, tailored “sweatshirt” blazer, wine corduroys instead of denim, and printed black loafers.
