Business Casual Attire for Women | 4 Great Outfits For Work


For women, business casual attire can be tough. You’re always asking yourself if it’s too casual or so formal that it feels stuffy. You want to keep it appropriate, but you also don’t want to look boring. Playing with prints, bright colors or even neutrals are all great ideas to switch up your outfits for work. You can also switch out the pieces you tend to always wear for new, updated pieces like wide-leg pants and jumpsuits. Adding fun accessories will give you subtle hints of style to finish off your workwear looks. Here are some outfits that will take your business casual outfits from bland to bold without overdoing it!

Business Casual Outfit #1: The Pencil Skirt

A pencil skirt is a must-have for business casual looks. Find one with a solid color and pair it with a blouse complete with a tailored collar. You can always add in interesting accessories with subtle color through your earrings and layered bracelets. Since we are in the beginning of summer, finish off your business casual outfit with sunglasses, sandals and a bag in similar black and white tones.

Business Casual Outfit #2: The Dress

If you’re starting out with a solid shift dress, find classic and neutral accessories like a rosegold chain necklace and muted orange stud earrings. Clear sunglasses with a hint of color are right on trend and give the perfect understated accessory look. A leather strap watch, a brown leather computer bag, and nude pumps compliment the dress so well. We’ve used a cheery yellow dress here since it’s summer but you can wear a more neutral shade like navy, olive green or browns during cooler months or for a more understated look.

White wide-leg pants are perfect for summer and look super polished with a flowy orange tank top. Adding in a pop of green from your earrings and necklace will give this business casual outfit a fresh update. Muted mules and half-frame sunglasses show you know your style. Finish the look off with a camel bag for a trendy yet professional office-ready look.

Business Casual Outfit #4: The Jumpsuit

A jumpsuit is a not commonly worn to work but it’s appropriate when worn with a chic white blazer. Adding in leopard print sunglasses, subtle gold jewelry and nude sandals will balance out this sophisticated look. A pale pink bag will give the perfect amount of brightness against the navy jumpsuit. This is a great all-year round outfit since it’s a dark+light combo.

Boho Style – Master it with these Four Summer Outfits


The 70’s bohemian vibe is back in a big way this season. We’ve been seeing everything from fringe trim to full-on flares and we’re loving every second of it! Even if you’re not a fan of head-to-toe boho style clothing, you can still rock the trend by accenting with your accessories. Try a fringe bag or maybe beaded detailing on your bangles and bracelets. You can also easily create that laidback boho feel by throwing on a billowy dress and chic structured hat. Check out these outfit ideas for more boho inspiration!

Outfit #1: Flowy Shorts

A boho look isn’t complete without fringe and flowy fabrics. The key to sporting a chic bohemian look is to start with relaxed-fit silhouettes like this top and shorts combination. Add a neutral hat and have fun with accessories like a bold fringe bag paired with unique bracelets and bangles. You can’t go wrong with beaded flat sandals that scream boho style!
