Business Style: My 9-to-5 Work Outfit

9 to 5 work style

Majority of my wardrobe consist of professional outfits, so when I’m shopping for clothes, I look for versatile pieces that can be styled for 9-to-5 workdays as well as weekends. I think both this striped knit and these black pants fit that bill! They can be worn together and dressed up with a structured bag and gold jewelry, or the pieces can be separated for casual looks.

& Other Stories striped knit (shop more sweaters), MM.LaFleur “Pippa” culottes (shop more culotte pants), Christian Louboutin “Iriza” pumps (shop more heels), CÉLINE Box bag, Moorea Seal gold hoop earrings

Since I’ve been really into retro striped knits, I gravitated toward this camel and black sweater right away — plus, it has fun puffy sleeves! On weekends, I style this sweater with mom jeans for a more relaxed vibe.

A pair of black culottes is a closet staple, and the ones I’m wearing are made with a quality, thick fabric that creates an elegant shape. I’ve worn culottes casually with sandals or dressed up with heels, as the cropped length nicely highlights the shoes and lengthens your silhouette.

    Love the top! The sleeves does add a bit more of it own fun characteristic to the piece. Versatile pieces are a must in my wardrobe too.

    Love the combination of stilettos and culottes, I think these two can make a great office output, simple and chic.

    Love the outfit! I’m also always shopping for pieces that I can use for work and on the weekends, but once I wear them to the office a couple of times I never feel like wearing them on my days off XD
    Have a great week,

      haha I definitely feel that way about some of my work pieces! But some items I try to keep more fun so I’d still want to reach for them on weekends.
