When deadlines and to-do lists are crazily piling up, it's typical to think less about what you're going to wear for the day. Keeping a few tried-and-tested outfits in mind, however, can make dressing up a breeze without sacrificing how you look! Start with these easy top-and-pants pairings below:
1. Long-Sleeved Top + Cropped Pants
Explore other trouser options beyond your usual slacks! When rocking cropped pants, balance out the cropped hem with a long-sleeved top to avoid looking too laid-back in an office setting.
2. Buttondown Shirt + High-Waisted Pants
This combo will accentuate your waist without being constricting.
3. White Blouse + Faded Denim Jeans
Don't have a strict dress code preventing you from wearing jeans? If you don't know what to wear for the day, simply focus on putting together a color combo: White and blue are two fresh hues that are so easy to pair!
4. Plain Blouse + Printed Pants
A printed piece might seem intimidating at first, but the key is to tone it down with a basic closet staple!
5. Colored Buttondown Shirt + Denim Jeans
Shirts in jewel tones like emerald green and royal blue instantly dress up your faded blue pants. Wear this look on a casual Friday!
6. Turtleneck + Cigarette Pants
When worn together, these two well-fitted pieces create a sleek look from every angle.
7. White Top + Beige Pants
Here's an easy color combo that always looks sophisticated.
8. Turtleneck + Colored Pants
Chances are, you already own a turtleneck in your closet. Amp it up by wearing it with a colored pair of trousers instead of your go-to jeans.
