Refreshed Return-to-Office Looks


Whether you’re starting a new job, a freelancer returning to the corporate world, or you worked from home and now transitioning to an office, it’s always a good time to have an arsenal of professional clothes for work. No need to discard everything in your closet! Simply updating what you have can result in fresh new looks. As spring is coming to an end and summer is about to begin, we also have to be ready to dress up for warmer months as we return to the office.


We’ve gathered several pieces and put together a few looks to get through the workweek for the months ahead so take a look and add your favorites to your cart.

Monday Motivation

Shop the Jess Button-up Shirt Dress - Plus, $156.99


What makes Mondays tough is getting out of the weekend state of mind. To help get us out of bed early on a Monday morning, it helps to be motivated by something like a new outfit, like this vibrant red shirt dress that’s sure to bring the energy to your day. Being excited to wear new clothes and try on a new look is what we need to jumpstart the week. Whether it be a dress, a suit, or a combination of pants and blouse - whatever screams power dressing will surely help us maneuver through the week on the right note.


Try this Look:

Pair a vibrant top, which becomes the accent color, with neutral-colored pants that has a hint of the same accent color. Accessorize with the same accent color for the shoes and keep the bag neutral. Go easy on the jewelry.

Wednesday Wisdom

Shop the Katrina Midi V-Neck Dress, $92.05


Then comes Wednesday, the middle of the week, and so we should still appear smart and ready for whatever comes our way. Things can start getting even more intense as deadlines draw near, more meetings are scheduled, and other tasks are handed to us. On this day, we want to project that we are still on top of our game and right on track. A sleek dress, a trusty blazer, or a top-and-slacks combo will do the trick.

Try this Look:


For the Spring and Summer months, a sleeveless blouse can be paired with a cotton blazer that can be removed during warmer times of the day or when outside the office. Pair the top with ankle-length pants that can keep the look casual for an after-work activity. Accessorize with neutral-colored bags and shoes.

A white blouse will always be in style. It’s timeless, clean and goes well with anything. Pair this blouse with another classic - houndstooth-print pants and black heels. Accessorize with simple gold earrings and a neutral tote bag.
