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!

The Tailored Suit

available at Aritzia $110 SHOP NOW

available at Emily Cho $295.00 SHOP NOW

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.

Graphic Prints

available at Marimekko $206.50 SHOP NOW

available at Aritzia $110 SHOP NOW

available at Emily Cho $375.00 SHOP NOW

Do you want to try prints but are unsure about what types are acceptable or go a bit too far?  Try graphic prints to elevate your work style in the chicest of ways. Add a feminine blouse and a bold colored bag and that’s a printed look that’s totally work worthy.

The New Trench

available at Mr. Larkin $590.00 SHOP NOW

available at H&M $24.99 SHOP NOW

Punch up your casual Friday look by adding some drama with a colored trench. This pastel pink version is super feminine and dresses up your basic jean. Top off your look with chic patent leather flats and you’ve taken jeans a t-shirt to a new level.

Even with a dress code, don’t be afraid to shake it up a bit. Add some personality to your work wear with simple touches. And remember ladies, #StyleGoals rule number one…don’t play it safe and don’t be basic!
