Chic outfits to perfect your work day.

Work days call for working girls to look presentable at the office. But working fashion girls simply won't stop at looking plain in a sea of pinstripe suits and sensible pumps. That being said, putting extra effort in looking stylish at work entails careful outfit planning which can be a tedious job, especially if your workload is heavy everyday. So we've curated five outfits that can replace your usual suits but won't diminish the value of a power outfit. From Monday to Friday, we've got outfit combinations especially made for the #girlboss that you are!

MONDAY: Crop top + Pajama pants

We know you're not quite ready yet to let go of the weekend. So why not dress effortlessly, as if you just rolled out of bed? Go for a pair of pajama pants that are comfortable and easy to wear. Avoid looking like you literally went to work in your PJs by wearing a cropped top. If possible, wear boxy silhouettes to add structure to your look to balance the satin fabric of your pajama pants. Slip on a pair of slides to finish off the look.

TUESDAY: Monochrome outfit

Stick to a single hue to easily look put together, but don't be limited to wearing solid colors. Play with prints like stripes and have that double as a unifying outfit element, while elongating your frame at the same time. Add different fabrics, like suede, via your shoes if you plan to wear a pair in the same color.

WEDNESDAY: Whites + Statement jewelry

Halfway through the week, don't stress with color combinations. Stick to a neutral color like white and elevate it with fun statement pieces like oversized earrings. Go for embellished shoes to add a playful touch to your look.

THURSDAY: Moto jacket + pleated skirt

Start playing up your outfit two days from the weekend. Toughen up a pleated skirt with a moto jacket but retain the relaxed look by pairing it with a basic tee and embellished sneakers.

FRIDAY: Denim + blazer

For casual Fridays, don't be afraid to wear denim! But stray from looking basic by choosing a frayed pair. Don a blazer to keep it business-ready but make sure it has an interesting element to keep you from looking stiff. Play with accessories if you don't own a statement blazer. Keep your heels low so you won't have to sacrifice comfort come your after-work drinks with colleagues!
