Appropriate Work Attire

Find the Trends that Work and the Trends that don’t when it comes to Work Attire!

If you’re building up that work and career wardrobe with some of the latest trends, it’s easy to make a few mistakes. Even a semi-professional workplace will have rules and guidelines regarding what’s acceptable for the office, and the hottest spring and summer trends might not make the cut!

Strapless tops and sheer clothing is a definite fashion don’t for work, but there are still plenty of great pieces that can complement your style and still stay in tune with the season’s latest trends. From cropped pants to cardigans, here are some of the latest trends that you can take from the runway to the office stairway!

Pick up these Hot Spring & Summer Trends for the Office:

Hot Trend for the Office: Cropped Pants

Cropped pants are a simple way to enjoy the warmer months ahead without compromising on classy style. Pick up fitted cropped pants that end just above or just below the knee for a sophisticated look for the office; this year’s best color choices include beige, khaki, white and of course, plain black.

Hot Trend for the Office: ¾ Sleeve Cardigans

The button down cardigan is back this season with a fresh new twist; ¾ sleeve cardigans with details like oversized buttons, waist ties, and zippers are a great way to stay warm on those cooler spring days. You can always turn these into a twin set by adding a matching camisole; this is the perfect complement to a trendy patterned skirt for the office.

Hot Trend for the Office: Sleeveless Turtleneck

If your workplace allows you to go sleeveless (casual Friday, perhaps?), the sleeveless turtleneck is a chic and sophisticated office look that pairs well with dress pants or even a skirt. Pick up yours in a solid color and accessorize with large earrings or a headscarf for a complete look. For a more professional look, you can always use the turtleneck as a layering piece under a blazer or lightweight bolero – this way you get the look with spending your day sweating from wearing so many layers!

Hot Trend for the Office: Cropped Blazer or Jacket

You can wear a cropped Blazer or jacket with a pair of cropped pants, or just with regular dress or suit pants for a complete look. Keep your torso slim by pairing a fitted cropped blazer or jacket with a fitted tank, and then pair it with some wide leg trousers. For a trendier office look, grab a cropped bolero and pair it with some slim fitting (but still appropriate) trousers. Try adding a printed or contrasting tunic or shell tank under your jacket or blazer to add variety to your wardrobe!

Hot Trend for the Office: Platform Mary Janes

If you’re loving the re-emergence of Mary Jane heels this season, pick up your favorite color in a patent leather. Platform Mary Janes are a great way to add a feminine twist to any suit or skirt ensemble, and this year’s hottest styles are appearing in bold pink, red and even royal blue.


Workplace Attire – What to Skip

Some of this year’s trends may look great in the store, but are more appropriate for your weekend revelries and special occasions. A few trends to skip at the office include:

  • Sheer blouses or tunic tops (unless you’re layering them under a blazer or jacket)
  • Oversized tunic tops without structure
  • Halter tops and bandeaus
  • Miniskirts and minidresses
  • Wrap shirts with plunging necklines

From sleeveless turtlenecks to cropped pants, you have plenty of choices for rounding out that work wardrobe with some of the latest trends. Just skip some of the recent additions to the spring and summer collections that show too much skin – you can save those pieces for after-work events and weekends if you must, or layer them discreetly under other pieces by day.
