4 Work Outfits You’ll Wear All Spring
Deciding what to put on for a day’s work is an executive decision that you make—there’s no one else
around to weigh in on the shirtdress-or-denim debate, and choosing heels over flats doesn’t require a data model. On
a good day, this daily closet brainstorm feels creative and freeing, but early call times; wailing, impatient
children; or plain old outfit ennui can strike at any time. For those mornings, we’ve lined up four back-pocket
outfit equations so good, they practically solve themselves.
BUSINESS AS USUAL
This spring’s star shirtdress: a bright-white poplin one-piece that’s buttoned-up enough for the
office (particularly with a checked overcoat) but doesn’t feel stuffy after-hours. The key to the desk-to-drinks
transition here is a pair of striking heels, plus a rosy lip tint tucked into your bag.
JUST WRAPPING UP
The silk-blouse-and-belted-wrap-skirt combo is the paper money of workwear: It works pretty much
everywhere. The look is even more effective when the means-business tie-neck top is balanced with a playful,
itty-bitty print and statement slides. This is the time to pull out the power accessories: Nothing says business
like a standout watch or a classic Hermès.
MEETINGS ON MEETINGS
It’s 7 a.m. and you realize your calendar is packed through 7 p.m.: exactly the kind of day the
jumpsuit was made for. Keep the sleeves short (for slipping in and out of a blazer), the legs wide, and the
palette neutral—then add a roomy tote and a pair of oversize yellow-gold hoops that shine in even the harshest
THE HOME OFFICE
Sure, working from home means you’re less likely to end up chatting with colleagues in the kitchen,
but a put-together look will boost energy and productivity in any environment. Swap the pj’s for wide-leg denim
culottes, trade your T-shirt for an airy top with feminine details, and complete the look with an orangey-red balm
and bold jewelry (in case you run out for lunch).
