Office OOTDs usually have a bad reputation for being boring, but they definitely don’t have to be that way. You can easily inject your personal style into your wardrobe with a few smart and timeless pieces. Below, we list down seven things you need to further bring out your inner power woman at the office.
A Structured Tote
It can accommodate your personal items plus your laptop, folders, and important documents—plus, they come in versatile neutral colors so you don't have to dump all your bag’s contents into another one just for the sake of matching it to your outfit.

A White Blazer
The collar's tasseled hem adds some edge to the piece, but the slightly puffed sleeves make the jacket soft and feminine. Make it even cooler by cinching your waist with a corset belt.

A Bold-Hued Bag
If your office wardrobe consists of neutral colors like black, navy, and beige, add a pop of color to your through a brightly hued bag.

A Pair of Wedges
The thin straps on these sandals will add the illusion of length to your legs and the wedge heel will be way more comfortable than stilettos. Pair this with a chic midi skirt and a festive top to easily transition from work to play.
