5 Outfits for the Empowered Woman at Work

Looking professional at work is one of the things that get women noticed—and you want to get the right kind of attention. This is why it’s essential to know how to choose outfits that can be worn to work and what ensembles should be avoided especially when there is a specific dress code. Instead of thinking of dress codes as a limitation, we have limitless options and stunning styles to choose from when it comes to power dressing for the office. You can opt to wear a dress, a suit, a blouse with pants or a skirt, and so on. Take a look at these styles for inspiration.

Classic Dressing

Jess Long Sleeves Button-Up Shirt Dress

When you want to be treated seriously, you’ll want to look classy and smart. Choose pieces that have that feature, like button-down shirts and dresses. These pieces also have a more modest look that is undeniably professional. We’d say this is the most traditional work look, aside from suits. 

Combination To Try:

Alternative Pieces:

Get classic shirts like the Dr2 Button Down Top Blouse With Puff Sleeves or the Ny Collection Plus Size 3/4 Rolled Sleeve Striped Blouse for heavy wardrobe rotation.


Suitably Styled

Coco Cotton Belted Blazer - Plus

Suits are another go-to get-up for business attire. It’s always good to have at least two suits in your closet. Get yourself a skirt suit and a pants suit. You can choose the traditional suit in navy, gray, or black, but you can also opt for looser-fitting ones or those that come in non-neutral shades if you’re in a more relaxed business environment.

Alternative Pieces:

Elevated Simplicity


Cataleya Crewneck Draped Sheath

We usually have pieces that fall in the in-between, meaning they’re versatile enough to pass for work wear but may also be used for casual occasions. They just require a bit of accessorizing to dress them up. The choice of jewelry, bag, and shoes will make or break the outfit.

Combination To Try:

Alternative Pieces:

Comfortably Chic

Some companies, like creative industries and start-ups, are more lenient when it comes to what can be worn at work. The dress code can be smart casual which will allow you to wear jeans with a blouse or a T-shirt with slacks and a blazer. In instances like these, you can choose comfortable outfits but do choose chic pieces so as not to look shabby or underdressed.

Alternative Pieces:

Sleek Sophistication

 


Olivia Draped One Shoulder Sheath Dress

If you’ve watched shows in an office setting like Suits, you’ll notice the style of the female characters and how they always look so sleek and polished. They wear body-defining outfits like pencil skirts, figure-hugging dresses, or straight pants paired with sleeveless tops. Don’t forget the sexy but no-nonsense pumps! This style is great for a more formal office setting that requires business outfits all the time.

Alternative Pieces:

 

Always Professional

If you want to be professional, you have to do so in every aspect even in the way you dress. It truly does make a difference and it makes a lasting impression. Be an empowered woman who knows what she can do and how to do it.
