This post is a bit of business casual style inspo! Not that I'm an expert by any means. But I do have some favorite pieces that mix & match consistently for work day looks that I'd like to share! I'm the BIGGEST fan of leggings but sometimes ya gotta dress it up a bit! Especially Monday through Friday 9-5. Here are 5 outfit ideas using 6 key pieces!
My fave 6 key pieces - BLAZER + PANTS + SKIRT + BLACK BLOUSE + WHITE BLOUSE + HEELS
#1 - BLAZER + SKIRT
This is my favorite + easy look!! A pretty black skirt with a classic blazer on top is the BEST. Especially a blazer with roll up sleeves. A solid blazer is an investment piece because it is so versatile & goes with everything! I wear mine with work clothes & LBD's on Friday nights out. Add a red lip & BAM!
#2 - BLACK BLOUSE + SKIRT
Black on black on black is never a bad idea! Black top + black skirt + black heels. You really can't go wrong with this! It's like Batman inspiration. Jk. Pair a simple black blouse with a pretty black skirt & heels.
#3 - WHITE BLOUSE + PANTS
Add some color! And by color I mean white. LOL. Another fave of mine!! Don't get me wrong, I'm not opposed to color...it's just not my go-to. I'm a fan of white + black + neutral colors when it comes to work. These pants are my FREAKIN FAVORITE. I wear them all the time. Literally just wore them for St Pattys Day. Which shows they can be for any occasion! Even drinking green beer. They are definitely my go-to work day pants any day of the week!!
#4 - BLAZER + WHITE BLOUSE + PANTS
Add a blazer + top knot to change it up completely. Us ladies are lucky because we can throw on a different hair-do & a jacket & create a whole new look! I'm a fan. It's a simple way to layer & mix & match these 6 pieces.
#5 - BLAZER + PANTS
Add a fun blazer to your black top + black pants to change it up!
So I'll admit I got this blazer from Express YEARS AGO. Which clearly is out of style but I still freakin love it!!! Sorry bout it! This Express blazer is the perfect addition to a black blouse + black pants. Dresses it up a bit! There are so many cute & unique blazers out there right now & any one of them would be a great addition to black pants + black blouse. I've linked a cute Express floral blazer that I'm dyinggg over.
#6 - HEELS
You absolutely HAVE TO have a good pair of work heels!!
These BCBG heels are my absolute favorite!! LIKE EVER. They are a classic black pointy-toe heel that go with everything. AND they are comfy!!! With that being said, I don't recommend wearing them 5 days straight. Which is what I did. And they left my feet bleeding. As all of you ladies know, that comes with the territory!! Cute heels + blisters. HOWEVER, these are the comfiest I have found!! No one should have to wear heels 5 days in a row but sometimes work is work! Haha.
SHOP THE LOOKS
I could only find 3 exact items (which are by far my favorites) - The Theory Blazer, Aritzia Dexter Pant & BCBG heels. These are investment pieces that you will not regret! The rest are similar picks that are super cute! Double click the image to shop the look!
I'm always looking for more style inspo! Whether it's buisness casual or a night out...share your faves!!!
