Today I’m sharing 7 looks that could work for a range of different office environments (or no office at all!). From classically corporate to polished professor to artsy accountant, there’s bound to be at least one that sparks an idea for your own closet!
I was going to wait until Monday to share these but figured this would give you a head start for next week. Scroll down for all the looks and catch a quick style tip in each one!
If I worked in an office, this would probably be my go-to outfit formula most days. A simple light coloured top front tucked into black fitted pants with an oversized blazer on top. I added some minimal leather accessories in a range of textures to keep things interesting.
Attention to detail is a great skill to have whether it’s for reading reports or getting ready. So consider giving those extra elements some thought when you’re putting together a simple look. A little really goes a long way with a modern flat or an unique headband.

SOME GREAT VINTAGE BLAZER OPTIONS
This one is a power look and then some. It’s fundamentally minimal but because each item is carefully curated with clean lines and elegant details it has a real boldness to it. I love, love, love the way this palette of bright white, cream, camel and a couple of hints of chocolate came together.
Never underestimate the impact of a monochromatic look! See if you can pull together an outfit using pieces within a tonal range. It could be greys, blues, reds or greens! Whatever you find yourself drawn to often.

I’m certainly not reinventing the wheel with this office look but I felt the ivory blazer was a nice way to freshen up a black top and houndstooth trouser. I went for loafers, a watch and a large leather tote to reinforce the classic menswear vibe.
Black and white with a bit of pattern and a hit of brown is an easy go-to colour palette when I’m putting together outfits in a hurry.

Houndstooth is one of a my favourite patterns (must be the Brit in me) because it always manages to add interest while still blending in. I fought the urge to add a bright white element in this look and opted for a muted olive green button down. I love how this one feels a moody and earthy with the mix of sage, oxblood and lots of black textures.
Next time you’re inclined to add a certain colour maybe swap it out for something less obvious and see how it feels!

Every time I wear this denim duster someone usually says I’m serving some major art teacher vibes and I can totally see why. A long duster coat like this is a great piece to sub in instead of say a blazer, leather jacket or sweater because it’s a bit less expected and adds an element of polish without being too basic or serious. Duster jackets are a fundamental part of my personal style for that very reason!
Fun fact, I almost took psych in undergrad with a plan to become an art therapist. I even considered doing a masters in it but decided to follow my love of design instead.

Since we’re on the topic of duster coats, I wanted to get a bit creative with this green one and decided to try it out as a dress. Now I just can’t believe it took me so long to wear it this way! I layered it over a pair of opaque tights and a fitted turtleneck and belted it with a unique but minimal knot belt.
Whenever I’m trying something new with an item, I try to keep the rest of the look really simple. This way I’m not so far outside my comfort zone that I feel self-conscious. In this case that meant all black accessories and clean lines throughout.

Last but not least we have a more classically corporate look. I wore this one recently for a meeting and felt like a total boardroom badass!
There is something special about the combination of a sweater dress and a blazer. The two don’t typically work together but in this case I’m really feeling the softness of the monochrome grey palette mixed with clean lines and a black leather box bag and pointed boot.
Coming at you Q4!
