Office wear should mostly be demure and professional but you still want to always incorporate your own personal style in it, especially in the spring and summer seasons. This is because your outfits will be lighter in layers and therefore more noticeable.
A cardigan can seem quite boring and as cliche 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. For this look, I paired a black knitted cardigan 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 I wore is practical for the weather and not too casual when styled with the cardigan.
For a more formal look, I finished of the look with plain court heels and a simple bag. Even though this spring style office wear outfit is not as formal as a pant or skirt suit, depending on the role, it could still be an 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.
