Fashion5 Ways to Update Your Office Wardrobe

The idea of an office wardrobe may seem limiting, but it doesn’t have to be! Get ready to refresh your dress code with new smart and chic pieces while still keeping it office appropriate. Don’t sacrifice your style with the same old, instead let it shine through just by incorporating a few new pieces.

It’s time to workshop your new wardrobe–here are five ways you can update your office wardrobe to give it (and you!) that well-deserved promotion.

Office Dresses

1. Accent Your Dress
Keep your dresses on rotation with new pieces that can spruce up any office outfit. On-trend accents and prints are a great way to update any office wardrobe to keep it looking current and fresh. Our Say So Lace-Up Bodycon Dress is a classic midi-length bodycon dress, but features a chic, detailed lace-up belt. Prints are also a great way to refresh that wardrobe. Our Save and Spot Polka Dot Long Sleeve Midi Dress is a fresh new way to do polka dots and also features a tying neckline.

Blazers

2. Go Bold in Blazers
Blazers are making the biggest comeback in and out of the office this year. Gone are the days of old shoulder pads–the new millennium is giving this bold silhouette a new and even bolder look. Seasonal prints and patterned blazers like our Amuse Society Blazin Black and White Striped Long Sleeve Dress and luxe blazers such as our Black Swan Juliette Black Velvet Blazer will make you the office It Girl. Want to wear a blazer and a dress? You can do that! Our Executive Move Black Long Sleeve Blazer Dress is just what you need to look chic at the office and during after hours.

Loafers

3. Start Loafing Around
The easiest and most comfortable office appropriate shoe may just have to be the loafer. Backed, backless, or slingback, the loafer offers a sleek and professional look while still feeling comfy and casual. Depending on your office dress code, you can shine bright and bold in our Chicago Gold Loafers or keep it classic in our Kelsey Dagger Corduroy Loafers. There are so many styles to choose from mules, slides, and loafers you’re bound to find your very own.

Carry It All

4. Carry It All
You can definitely have it all when you’ve got a workbag that can carry all of your personal essentials, plus your workload. Our Wing Woman Handbag is your have-it-all bag and owes its name to the chic wing-style shape. It is a must-have piece to carry from your commute to the office. And don’t worry if you just want to carry your essentials and nothing more–our Melie Bianco Cameron Handbag is a sleek and chic rounded bag and has a roomy interior for everything you’ll need.

Office Supplies

5. Request: Office Supplies
Go above and beyond the new you by updating your workspace with new supplies. Why not pair your newly updated office wardrobe with new phone cases? Choose from luxe marble, to bold embroidery, and fresh fauna. Don’t forget your office supplies–nothing gets the creative juices flowing with fresh, new ideas more than a cute new notebook. Whether you’re a goal digger or a sucker for succulents these chic Denik notebooks will jazz up your workspace and add fresh new pairings for your outfits.

Don’t hit snooze on your office wardrobe–let us know in the comments how you’ll be updating the new professional you! You can also find all of your office essentials by shopping our office chic collection.

FashionHow to Wear It: Layering

Just in case you haven’t noticed, fall is HERE! We love the fall season for all the obvious reasons (our Spiked Pumpkin Spice Latte being one of them), but it’s also a great excuse to change up your wardrobe.

One of our favorite trends that has taken over the past year is layering. We love how you can layer a simple (or statement!) top under your otherwise summer friendly pieces to make it a bit more suited for chillier months. See how we layer to achieve the effortlessly chic vibe that you’ve been seeing everywhere!

BASICS:

Basics

You can’t go wrong with the classics! We love pairing simple, neutral tees or bodysuits under dresses to give you a bit of warmth. When layering under something patterned or textured, we recommend layering with a basic tee to keep the focus on your statement piece. Keri flawlessly layered a basic black tee under her plaid dress with matching black accessories, showing us a perfect example of how to make your spaghetti strap dress office and autumn friendly!

LACE & MESH:

Basics

Layering with mesh or lace tops is one of our favorite ways to elevate any outfit. We love how Venessa wore her long sleeve lace top under her pinafore dress, showing us an outfit we will definitely be recreating. Lace and mesh tops are perfect for those warmer fall days since they give you the layered look you love, while being lightweight and breathable.

STATEMENT SLEEVES: 

Basics

Want to make a statement?! Layering with statement sleeves is the ideal way to escalate your outfit from basic to fabulous! We love statement sleeves with classic colors and shapes to let your fluttery sleeves steal the show. Take inspo from Kemper for all the holiday parties on your agenda by utilizing your tried-and-true LBD, paired with a statement top to freshen things up!

Show us how you layer–we’d love to see! Share your best layered looks by using #lovelulus on Instagram.
