Business Casual Work Outfits

Figuring out what is office appropriate and what isn’t has taken me some time to learn. In my first year of working in a corporate office, I’ve had my fair share of not-so-good office outfits and some that really hit it out of the park! It took me some time to figure out what my professional style was going to be and during that time I also realized that how I dress affects how well I perform in my job. I’m all about being comfortable, but I also like to look professional and put together. So, I put together some of my favorite summer work outfits to hopefully inspire you to be comfortable and professional!

Monday

Mondays are when I like to look the best in order to start my week off right. Right now for the summer, I love bright or patterned dresses on those rough Monday mornings to put me in a great mood!

Tuesday

Similar to Monday’s look, I try to keep my most professional looks for the beginning of the week because that’s always the busiest part of the week and I want to feel as productive as possible. Does anyone else feel like Tuesday is even worse than Monday?? I kept it comfortable with a bright red dress and some mules for this look!

Wednesday

Ahhh hump day! By this part of the week, I’m in full comfort mode and like to keep it really simple. A comfy pair of Pixie Pants from Old Navy and a button down is always a great office look. Plus these cute pink loafers add a fun pop of color without being too over the top!

Thursday

Thursday is always one of those days that can go either way. Either I’m in a great mood and want to dress up or I’m crazy stressed and just want to be comfortable, so this outfit is good for both! The simple pants and top keep me comfortable but the wedges help me look a little bit more put together.

Friday

Yay for casual Fridays! Even though I’m a firm believer in business casual for the office, I do love a good pair of jeans after a long week of meetings. For the summer I like to keep it simple with a soft button down and a pair of mom jeans with casual sandals.
