I confess: I binge-watched Touch Your Heart—well-loved Goblin pairing Lee Dong Wook and Yoo In Na's much-anticipated new K-drama—like it was my job last weekend. The show's currently only got eight episodes out of 16 up online, and though barely halfway through, it's already a veritable treasure trove of workwear styling ideas! Whether or not you're a struggling actress doing character immersion in a high-profile law firm (yep, that's the gist of it), we guarantee you'll find a tip to use come Monday.
1. The Big Cinch
This recipe calls for an oversized, pinstriped blazer (rifle through the men's section, why don't you?) cinched at the waist with a wide black belt over a pencil skirt. If Yoon Seo's hemline's a tad too short for your office dress code, a midi is just as chic. Oh, and don't shy away from heeled ankle boots! They're a cool alternative to your usual flats.
Head-to-toe white screams "I'm capable!" like nothing else can. After all, it'll take a real boss to keep it spot-free the entire day, a feat not to be trifled with. A belted dress in a streamlined silhouette and pristine matching pumps make a crisp combo, especially when topped with beige! Just don't trip over your own shoes.
3. Print Party
To collect petitions for a case in episode three, Yoon Seo steps out in a winning match of a bold, boxy, very '80s houndstooth blazer and floor-grazing flared black trousers. The pants' sole-dusting length and slight bell shape spin a no-fail workwear staple so, so fun.
Ready for anything from desk to drinks, the checked suit jacket (since coats are, well, obviously not an option this sweltering summer) is beyond versatile. Team with classic, straight-cut gray trousers and the aforementioned black ankle boot to spruce up those neutral tones.
5. The Skirt Suit
We've always championed the skirt suit as a fresh and dainty alternative to pants. A sleek-yet-soft dove gray will more than do: It'll work, and hard! We like Yoon Seo's styling trick—wear the blazer as a belted top instead of a cover-up to get more mileage out of a tailored investment piece. Smart.
