Happy Monday! It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these. I’ve had a few favorite finds in recent months that I’ve been incorporating in easy work-friendly outfits. These follow a pretty basic “formula” per usual, and are easy to recreate with similar pieces in your wardrobe! To see each of these looks in motion, check out my latest Instagram Reels video.
For more work outfit ideas see these posts from last winter:
Monday: Drape blouse + A-line skirt
Sarah Flint pumps 35.5 (code SARAHFLINT-JEAN50 for $50 off a first order)
The chic draping on this top made it an instant favorite for pairing with both trousers and skirts. Since it’s a slimmer cut top, I prefer it with wider cut pants / jeans or an A-line skirt rather than fitted bottoms.
Midi-length skirt options:
- Lulu’s champagne pleated skirt
- Amazon pleated skirt (XS fit me okay)
- Quince silk slip in a similar color
- Uniqlo pleated skirt
- ASOS petite pleated white skirt.
Tuesday: Black Mock Neck Top + Cream Trousers / Jeans
Edited Pieces mini belt xxs
There’s just something I love about a simple black and white pairing – or in this case, a winter cream. These trouser jeans from Ann Taylor are different from any jeans I own and SO flattering. I’ve tried them on with numerous tops ranging from fitted tees to cropped jackets to oversized sweaters and it all works.
The petite inseam on these jeans is 28,” making them a lot more wearable than most trouser-style jeans that run several inches longer and require sky high heels. I’m able to wear these with my mid heel booties and kitten heels as pictured above. FYI the rise is higher than most Ann Taylor bottoms though, and only for those who want something pretty high rise. I’ve found that using a contrast black & brown skinny belt helps visually break up the rise!
Wednesday: Blue Button Up Blouse +Camel Pants
These viral Zara pants continue to be a favorite and worth it to get hemmed. They’re wildly popular for a reason – something about the waist seaming and cut is just very flattering and creates a shapely silhouette from the waist to hips through the legs. These can be worn with sneakers and a chunky sweater for cozy casual wear too. I just picked these pants up in 2 more colors, as this camel pair has proven to be a favorite over the past year.
Thursday: Striped Top + Navy Trousers + Black Accessories
One of my favorite ways to pair navy is actually with black, which some may feel is a faux-pas! I love using both darker colors to create a sleek look with just subtle contrast.
Friday: Blazer + Rib Top + Jeans + Loafers
This is my everyday formula for being comfy while looking polished, and just the jacket switches from cardigan sweater jackets to more structured blazers. These loafers are my go-to for flats that have more coverage and are comfortable right off the bat. I’m packing for a trip and literally have both colors of these loafers packed as my only shoes so far! And this is still one of my most well-made tailored blazers, especially if you love a nautical-inspired button detail.
