10 Pieces for Your 9-5

Working girls, this post is for you. If you have an office job, teach, or any sort of work that requires a more conservative dress code, keep scrolling! Yes, we here at Brightside love a tee with the F word and a cleavage bearing bodysuit but our boutiques are stocked with quality pieces to refresh your workday wardrobe. Brightside babes are trendy, busy gals so all of our clothing can be worn for multiple seasons and occasions.

1. The Perfect Trouser

The ingredients for the perfect trouser include a high waist, cropped length, and muted design. With a flattering shape and hidden zipper on the side, these pants can be worn with just about any top or shoe. You likely already have a black work pant in your closet so add a plaid statement to your Monday outfit. 

2. The Midi Dress

The length, color, and structured empire waist of this dress offers versatility that transcends all seasons and occasions. Take the neckline into consideration based on your work environment and your own comfort level. Play with a crisp white shirt underneath or layer a blazer. This dress also comes in red and black. 

3. The Power Trench

This wrap jacket has Boss written all over it. This classic necessity is lightweight and looks great tied or left open. Tip: When leaving a jacket open with a long sash, tie it loosely in the back for a clean look. 

4. The Cropped Sweater

A twist on the classic, this sweater features a mock neck and slit bell sleeves. It's the perfect way to appear both trendy and work appropriate. Pair with a high waisted trouser during the week and under a cute overall dress for Sunday brunch.

5. The Pencil Skirt 

Every working girl needs a high waisted pencil skirt. This faux suede version is perfect for fall and winter with a simple tee knotted at the waist or a cropped sweater. 

6. The Black Shoe

You may already have a black bootie but these Dolce Vita's enter a whole new realm. Flirting the line between bootie and mule, these heels are a sleek and cool head turner. Perfect for a strut around the office or a commute on foot. 

7. The Button Down

A casual nod to the crisp white shirt is essential for comfort when you are tied to a desk all day. The high-low hem and vertical stripes of this shirt flatter all body types and the cuff sleeves add a flair of cool. 

8. The Blazer

Okay, first of all, we need to discuss the name- Takin' Cher Of Business Plaid Blazer. I mean... amazing. One tone blazers are great but business babes need a statement blazer that has the power to elevate your entire work vibe. Everyone at the water cooler is talking about it. 

9. Minimal Jewelry

A clean face and dainty jewelry completes an office look every time. Gorjana studs like these offer an edgier vibe than diamonds but keep the focus on your smarts and skills. 

10. Casual Wear 

TGIF! If your job offers casual Fridays or other opportunities for casual wear, take advantage! It breaks up the monotony and lets you play with your look. It's also a great time to let a little more of your personality shine. Our game day tee is perfect for sifting out Mean Girls fans and participating in Purple Fridays.
