Updating Your Work Wear for Spring

May 19, 2017






It’s easy to get in a style rut when it comes to work wear. Unlike your casual clothes, work day items tend to be more conservative and classic and, therefore, can feel boring. This does not have to be the case though! Two easy ways to update your 9-to-5 style this spring and summer are with scarves and lace.

More specifically; scarves have been on trend this year and – luckily for us working women – they are easy to incorporate into business casual / office style. One way to wear spring / summer scarves to work is by wearing your scarf loosely down the sides of a blazer as I did here. It’s such an easy way to transform the look of a classic work day outfit! This is one of my favorite outfit ‘updates’. If you missed it, check out last week’s post for another way you can style a scarf for your 9 to 5.

Another way to update your office style this spring is by incorporating lace. Lace is everywhere this spring and there are more and more options coming out that are work day appropriate. This lace hem skirt is my absolute favorite new piece of work wear. I love the slightly longer lace hem, and the fit is so comfortable! I definitely recommend this skirt.

Today is a short work day for me – I am only working until lunch as I am headed out this afternoon for a long weekend vacation! Follow along on instagram or twitter for updates on where I am headed and some of my trip behind-the-scenes!

  1. I agree! I just did a post last week on what to wear to work in the different scenarios you might face. I find it also depends on what enviro you work in that can also dictate your dress code. I do love how you combined various element to make one harmonious look. Would love to connect at http://the-wardrobe-stylist.com/2017/05/14/leg-workouts-for-women/
