The 2016 spring fashion shows featured trendy looks that were bold and included eye-catching embellishments. Incorporating this season’s trends into something that’s appropriate for the office isn’t as difficult as you may think. You can look chic, stylish, and on trend when at work, without shocking your more conservative co-workers and triggering a call from HR. Discover how to stay on trend with this season’s spring office fashion!
You can wear a bold pattern to the office, just opt for one that’s in a muted or neutral color and choose a fit that’s office-friendly. A great-fitting sheath dress is perfect for spring office attire, especially when it features a fun pattern in navy, dove gray, or classic taupe. Remember that pairing the dress with a wide belt helps create an hourglass look, while any vertical print panels on a sheath style offer a fantastic slimming effect.
Accessories to Enhance Casual Business Look
This spring it’s all about the eye-catching embellishments and accessories are a great way to enjoy this fashion trend. Take your Casual-Friday look to the next level by wearing a bold statement necklace over a classic white tee layered with a fitted blazer that tops a pair of great-fitting jeans. Heels are a must for this look and add a distinctly feminine touch to your business casual ensemble.
The Midi Skirt
The traditional midi skirt is a go-to clothing item for brunch with the girls on the weekend, but you can transition it to the office for a distinctive spring look. Pair a mid-calf length or midi skirt with a slim, tailored men’s style blouse. The fitted blouse balances the fuller skirt for a professional look. Keep the blouse color solid when pairing it with a patterned or floral skirt.
Sophisticated neutral knits are never out of style and this spring it’s an easy outfit to throw together that transitions effortlessly from the office to dinner out with friends. Choose lightweight knit weaves that are perfect for the warmer spring temperatures. Add a thin belt to cinch a blazer and create a more defined silhouette and complete the look.
A peplum is simply fabric that’s attached to the waist of women’s blouse, jacket, or dress waist. It may be gathered, flared, or even pleated. The peplum is a spring 2016 fashion trend that’s easy to embrace and perfect for office attire. Opt for a blouse with a subtle peplum and pair it with a pencil skirt.
Modern Cut Suit
This spring may be time to add a new, modern cut women’s suit to your wardrobe. Look for a fitted suit with cropped trousers you can wear with heels or sandals for the spring. To give it an edgier, runway look, swap your typical suit blouse or cami for an office-appropriate graphic tee.
White on White
A white on white look can be worn to the office without looking like you just came from an island vacation (or are wishing you were leaving for one). To keep your white on white outfit looking stylish for the boardroom, keep the fit tailored with sophisticated cropped linen pants and a white silk blouse or a white fitted sheath dress. If you stay with a tailored fit versus a flowing silhouette, this look works great for the office. Add a pop of color with a statement necklace.
