If you like the comfort and ease of working in sweatpants, but need to dress presentably to be around other humans, I have the perfect solution. There is nothing easier or more comfortable than this chic set from LA designer Ripley Rader. Chic and sophisticated workwear designed by a woman for women. Featured in Forbes, In Style, Vogue.
LOOK 2: ENERGIZING LUMINOSITY
Highlighted: Silver t-shirt and t-shirt, argentwork.com
The “new” way to wear a suit in a more casual office environment is to pair a blazer with a t-shirt, easy pants and – yes! – a basket. If you’re trying out a new thing this season, let it be bold in color! There are many color theories and research around the power of color to boost energy and mood. Dare, like a bright chartreuse (a major trending color we’ve seen on the Emmys red carpet!). Maybe a bold shade is too bright for you? No problem, the Argent brand is a great resource for sophisticated and affordable workwear for women – modern suit pieces like blazers, slacks, and slacks that mix and match and feel anything but boring.
LOOK 3: A DRESS TO IMPRESS
Featured Brand: LEZE Juniper Trench Coat, lezethelabel.com
I have a mantra for me: when I’m feeling down, I dress. And the easiest way to dress for work is with a real dress, like this incredible wrap dress from top brand LEZE, a fully sustainable fashion line that uses coffee grounds, plastic bottles and old fishnets in creating their clothes that are so soft they feel like pajamas. This dress does double duty! You can wear it as a dress or a trench coat.
LOOK 4: CASUAL FOR BUSINESS
Highlighted: Liverpool Gia Glider Slip-On Jeans, liverpooljeans.com.
I’ve heard that a lot of offices have moved from Casual Friday to Casual Everyday… and for some of our viewers, if they showed up to work in a blazer or a dress, their colleagues would say, “What the hell is that? queen coming? ? “So let’s take it down a notch and talk about jeans, especially the more comfortable jeans that look like Liverpool brand leggings. A) They’re pull-on and B) they have the perfect stretch that keeps everything in place. and C) If blazers are too formal for your office, try a Moto jacket as an alternative to a blazer, and the YESStyle.com website has a ton of pretty, very affordable work tops.
