Office wear might be demure and professional but that shouldn’t stop you from having a little fashion fun with your personal style, especially in the spring and summer seasons, where the details of your outfits will be much more noticeable.
A cardigan might seem quite boring and as cliché as a blazer when it comes to office wear, but it works for a number of reasons. Not only is it classy and classic but it is perfect for the season, because it is light and versatile. For this look, a black knitted cardigan is paired with a plaid print midi pleat skirt. Although the skirt has a classic style to it, its print and bottom appliqué add some extra pretty detail. The black vest top is practical for the weather and looks dressy styled with the cardigan.
For a more formal look, the outfit is finished off with plain black court heels and a simple leather bag. Although this spring style office wear outfit is not as formal as a tailored pant or skirt suit, it is still a fabulous style option for what to wear to a job interview. If you’d prefer to take this look from office-wear to after-work wear, simply replace the cardigan with a peplum leather jacket, red clutch bag and red heels for a statement finish.
