What is one piece in your work wardrobe that you feel you don’t have enough? Mine is a workwear blouse. I own a lot of camisoles and casual tees that I usually incorporate into my work outfits by pairing them either with cardigans or blazers but when it comes to proper workwear tops, my wardrobe is far behind.
I am working on changing that because good versatile workwear tops can elevate your look from 5 to 10 instantly. Today I’m sharing my tips to find workwear tops that will take you from work to weekend effortlessly.
Tips to find Versatile Workwear Tops For Workwear and Casual Outfits
Opt for tops made of Crepe de Chine or Polyester.
They bring an elegant, long-lasting and professional look. You can easily take these blouses from office to after-hour drinks and dinner effortlessly.
Tops with Prints and Special Details will Easily Elevate your Look.
Wrap blouses or blouses with neck bow or cute floral print will make dressing up for work exciting and it’s an easy way to add some color to your basic work outfit.
Tops with Sleeves are Super Versatile.
You can basically wear them all throughout the year. Style them with trousers or pencil skirts or jeans in Summer. In Spring/Fall wear a Puffer vest as I did here or sleeveless duster over it and In winter you can a wear them under crew neck sweaters (pick a blouse with a collar like the one I am wearing to achieve this)
Silk Camisoles in Colors are Wardrobe Staples.
This delicate and luxurious fabric pairs well with pretty much anything from a blazer to a tweed short jacket to joggers and denim jacket over the weekend. A Trouser with a silk camisole and cardigan is my go-to outfit for work. Moreover, silk is a body temperature regulator. It keeps you cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Silk is also moisture-wicking, hypoallergenic, and keeps your skin hydrated. More reasons to invest in one.
