What to wear to work this week

Pants and a blouse always work in the office, but sometimes the combination will leave you looking basic. Try a colorful pant like these ones (which are on sale!!) to liven up your outfit. Then, pair it with a sassy heel and a cool necklace and you are ready to go

Refresh your look with a statement blazer. Bright colors can be tricky but when paired with a neutral, like this gray pencil skirt, it can look daring and put together. Avoid going overboard and keep the accessories neutral as well.

The great thing about dressing for work in the summer is that you can get away with wearing a sun dress (as long as you don't show too much skin)! One with a high neckline that hits just above the knee is perfect. Wedges work well in the office  because they make your outfit more formal, yet are still pretty comfortable.

Every working woman has black skirts, blouses, and heels. Paired together, they can look boring, but throw a jacket over and voila -- instant style. This geometric jacket adds great texture to an otherwise plain outfit. If you want to look ultra chic, swipe on a red lip.

It's Friday! This means a more casual dress code for many offices. You want an outfit that you can feel confident in both at work and for a night on the town. Today, a denim jacket is your best friend. It works for a casual day in the office and then you can ditch it for drinks.

Dressing for work can be about exciting as watching your manicure dry. Everyday you are faced with the same problem: how to look professional without sacrificing style. Guys can throw on one of their suits and be office-ready but for us ladies, its just not that easy. Looking put-together in the office is a must, but women in fashion are not going to settle for the mundane -- and by mundane we mean charcoal pantsuits.

Another factor to consider is the weather, and dressing like a boss actually proves to be more difficult in the summer. It's blazing hot outside but you can't wear cut offs and a crop top to work (seriously, please don't). Luckily for you, we also deal with this struggle every day which inspired us to create a day by day guide to office style.
