You have to go to work and dress appropriately, but basic doesn’t mean boring. Instead of getting bogged down in the same old suit, start with the simple stuff—you know, black pants, a cardigan…probably things you already have in your closet (although if not, we’ve got you covered there, too!) Make these wardrobe staples fun by adding accessories and unique prints.
Each of the tops featured here from Charlotte Russe are under $20. Wear them with a pair of black pants and a cardigan or jacket for the office. Whether you prefer bold graphic impact or soft feminine florals, these tops have you (literally) covered.
Statement necklaces are still a hot trend for spring. Make them the statement of your outfit by layering one over a basic white blouse or t-shirt. These styles range from $8 to $34.
A chic dress can go a long way towards making your work wardrobe fun. For a cool $50 you can walk out the door in this Printed Square Neck Dress ($30) from Old Navy and Neutral Pumps ($20) from Nine West. For added style, try belting the waist or using one of those statement necklaces.
Or, try the Belted Pinstripe Dress ($30) from Charlotte Russe, which comes pre-accessorized with a red skinny belt. We added a Red and White Bangle ($16) from ModCloth for extra graphic impact.
Don’t have the basics to round out these suggestions? We visited Target and Old Navy to find simple styles under $50.
Target Mossimo Black Pants are on clearance for only $13, while the Mossimo Black Pencil Skirt is available for just $20.
Add this Basic White Blouse ($20) to pull the simple look together.
For casual Fridays, Old Navy Dark Wash Denim is $30. Buy two.
Next up, Old Navy Black Cardigan, which is a meager $27. Pair it with a simple Charcoal T-shirt ($16.50, but currently on sale for $10).
