Spring Office To Off-Duty

One of the challenges of gainful employment is finding a balance between your office wardrobe and your off-duty style.

Even if you work in the most casual environment, there is generally a notable difference between the types of clothing you’d wear to the office and the fashion you’d wear during your off-duty moments. Buying two separate wardrobes is not really a practical option — for both closet space and financial reasons.

So what’s a working gal to do?!

Multitask.

I imagine you’re pretty familiar with that concept. It seems that a major part of successful adulthood involves getting creative in order to get sh*t done. As it relates to style, creating a multitasking wardrobe is probably the best way to save a few bucks and save yourself some sanity. With a bit of fashion elbow grease and a good eye, even the trendiest of pieces can serve double-duty.

Take this TIE-NECK BLOUSE (under $60!), for example. On trend, with a draped silhouette and slightly flared sleeves, this top can easily make the transition from spring office to off duty with a few strategic swaps.

Off-Duty Jacket // Jeans // Heels // Crossbody Bag

Office Coat // Pants // Heels // Tote Bag

Style Notes:

For an effortless weekend look, leave the blouse untied and draped over your favorite pair of STRAIGHT LEG or skinny jeans! A suede moto jacket is the perfect compliment and this BLANK NYC style has quickly developed a cult following. The fit is fantastic (I wear a size S), as is the price tag. It also comes in a rainbow of colors. Personally, I’ve been eyeing this brown/tan color for quite some time!

While the weekend calls for a more undone style, wear the top tied and tucked into high waist trousers, for a clean and professional look.  A MID-HEEL POINTED TOE SLIDE PUMP is both comfortable and flattering (and under $60!!) when paired with a long, lean WIDE LEG TROUSER. Finish your office look off with a neutral, carry-all TOTE BAG.

Speaking of tote bags — who knew that OVERSTOCK sold CELINE bags!? Well, I guess we all do now. If you’re in the market for a new designer handbag, add this unexpected retailer to your shopping list for a name-brand bag on major discount.
