Spring is here, so this is the perfect time to create that feminine inspired workwear wardrobe with florals and pastels. Aside from color, feminine details like lace, eyelet, or flutter sleeves are also a nod to spring. When it comes to outer layers, I love the idea of adding a gorgeous pastel blazer that you can throw over a white blouse and wear with a neutral pant or jeans depending on your work setting.
Below are six spring inspired must-have items for your professional life:
A crisp white blouse is always in style, but spring is a great opportunity to add a few pastel beauties to your workwear wardrobe. From soft and sweet to playful and put-together the catwalks were full on frill. For those that want to take this trend from overly dramatic to just a touch of feminine detail, a romantic and airy flutter sleeve is a great way to pay homage to this look without going rife with ruffles.
Often overlooked for skinny pants in the past, wide-leg silhouettes are making a comeback & we couldn’t be more excited. Whether you opt for a wide leg trouser for the office or a palazzo pant in the office, now’s the time to embrace this stylish & flattering trend.
DRESSES & SKIRTS
Every woman should have at least one wrap dress in her closet. This classic style is a secret weapon for hourglass and apple shapes, though athletic and pears can rock them too. Similar to the A-line, but with a looser, more flowy silhouette, the wrap is perfect for accentuating (or adding to) the right curves. The tie-waist can create the illusion of a smaller waist and the length of your dress can give you more (or less) coverage depending on the occasion.
Pleated skirts are back! This fresh, retro style is multi-talented and manages to be breezy and structured at the same time. Try a longer midi hemline—below the knee or longer— for a modern take on this feminine trend.
SHOES & ACCESSORIES
If you’re adding bold prints and colors to your wardrobe, balance them out with tried and true neutral shoes and accessories, such as a versatile flat or a laptop bag.
