From Casual Chic to Office Ready: Your Ultimate Style Guide

Have you ever found yourself standing in front of your closet on a Monday morning, and all you want to do is throw on that cute, comfy outfit from Sunday brunch and head to work? We’ve all been there. But what if we told you there’s a way to make your favorite casual outfit office-ready? Yes, you heard it right!

Today, we’re going to let you in on some simple yet effective style secrets that can smoothly transition your adorable casual ensemble from the coffee shop to the conference room. The best part? You don’t need an overflowing wardrobe or a big budget to nail these transitions. Intrigued? Let’s get started!

This is exactly how we create our seasonal Work Wear Edits for each of our Seasonal Casual Outfit Guides. To give you a clearer picture, we’ve selected three outfits from our Fall 2023 Outfit Guide and their corresponding looks from the Fall 2023 Workwear Edit. This will help illustrate how we tweak these outfits to make them suitable for the workplace.

Outfit 1: (Day 1)

Cute Casual Fall Outfit: Printed Blazer + Solid Color Top + Medium Wash Jeans + Taupe Ankle Boots

This relaxed, casual outfit from our Fall 2023 Outfit Guide is perfect for a laid-back weekend. But how do we take it from Saturday shopping to Monday meeting?

Workwear Edit:

Cute Fall Work Wear Outfit: Printed Blazer + Solid Color Blouse + Black Trousers + Nude Pumps

We switch the cotton tee for a blouse, swap the jeans for a pair of smart dress pants, and change the booties to pumps. The result? A professional ensemble that maintains the original outfit’s color scheme and overall vibe.

Outfit 2: (Day 13)

Cute Casual Fall Outfit: Solid Color Cardigan + Striped Top + Medium Wash Jeans + Leopard Shoes

This outfit screams casual chic with its pattern mixing. But can it work for the office?
