Style Goals: How to Spruce Up Your Work Wear

Fashion editor Joiee Thorpe shows us how to werk our workwear.

It’s easy to fall into that same routine when getting dressed for work especially when you have a pant-suit-and-button-up kind of job. There are so many fun ways you can spice up what you already have without crossing the line!

A Little After Midnight in Black

This season’s trend is probably the easiest to try when you work in a more conservative workspace. No matter your line of work, a tailored suit is a great investment. It’s timeless and never fails to make a powerful statement. If you want to steer clear of a boring black version, try a suit with pops of color for a more feminine, flirty feel. The red buttons on this Pinko suit add a bright element that keeps all eyes on you — in the most professional way.
