    August 16, 2023 4 min read

    Hello, gorgeous readers! Did you ever think you could channel your inner Bruno Mars and still nail that professional look? Yep, you heard that right! Over at Bella Ella, I'm rocking this fabulous silk number today, and yes, I still get to work here. On that note, let's delve into 15 game-changing outfits to elevate your office style post-COVID. Oh, and by the way, isn't it amazing how our wardrobes have transformed since those challenging times?

    Business Casual - Striking The Perfect Balance

    1. Gucci Inspired Satin Set: This two-piece outfit offers both comfort and a touch of luxury. When you opt for richer materials like satin, pair it with an elevated shoe, like a loafer, to keep things stylish yet understated.

    2. The Elevated Black Jumpsuit: A black jumpsuit is a staple in many wardrobes. Enhance this classic by adding a belt at the waist. Finish the look with dainty jewelry and a sleek bun to look meeting-ready.

    3. The Oversized Button-up Twist: Pair wide-leg black slacks with an oversized button-up shirt for a trendy touch. Elevate the look by adding a printed shoulder sweater, and for the adventurous, why not throw in a baseball cap?

    4. Puff Sleeve Dress Fun: Opt for a dress with a fun print to bring some zest to the office. Pair it with white sneakers and perhaps a denim jacket. Remember, office fashion doesn't have to be bland!

    5. Color-Play With Slacks: Love colors? So do I! Especially green. Pair colorful slacks with a complementary colored top and keep the accessories muted to let the outfit shine.

    Elevated Casual - Taking Everyday Looks A Notch Up

    1. Denim Overload: Match a classic pair of jeans with a denim button-up. Layer with a brown blazer trench coat and accessorize with a sporty crossbody bag.

    2. Maxi Skirt & Pop Of Color: Go for a denim maxi skirt and team it up with a relaxed black button-down. Add a splash of color (like a muted lime green) and finish off with a statement loafer.

    3. Graphic Tee Meets Pleated Midi: Combine a bold graphic T-shirt with a pleated midi skirt. Layer on chunky necklaces and pair with heels for that edgy, trendy vibe.

    4. Denim & Flowy Button Down: Use a pair of flared denim jeans as your base. Pair with an oversized button-down and accessorize with a waist bag for a touch of creativity.

    5. Hoodie & Leather Fusion: Opt for leather pants and team them with a hoodie in a matching shade. Add heels and a stylish handbag to elevate this look.

    Fashion Forward Business Looks - Where Style Meets Professionalism

    With all of the current fashion trends, it's easier than ever to blend modern style with professional attire. Here are some additional looks to inspire your work wardrobe.

    1. The Eclectic Suit: Imagine a flowy, pink checker-patterned suit that screams both fun and business. What’s striking about this ensemble is the choice to layer it with jewelry instead of a shirt underneath. It perfectly balances professionalism with a touch of personal style. The low-cut neckline, maintained without revealing too much, complements the structural shoulders. With wide-leg pants flaring past the knees, this outfit gives the impression of someone lively, full of energy, and great company during breaks.
    2. The Statement in Maxi: The last look leans towards the more avant-garde. The ensemble starts with a beautiful cream-colored pleated maxi skirt – a piece that resonates with many fashion-forward New Yorkers, writers, and even teachers. But it's the statement button-up white top with a prominent bow and gold detailing that truly elevates this outfit. The oversized cardigan, showcasing patchworks, letterings, and streetwear-inspired graphics, adds layers of fun to the mix. Tying the whole look together are the bold color pops from the shoes and bag. This outfit speaks of a person who knows her fashion, is confident, and is not afraid to blend casual with formal.


    In essence, fashion at work is all about expressing yourself while maintaining the necessary professionalism. It’s a fine line but definitely not an impossible one. Between the looks shared, I hope you've found some inspiration for your work week. Remember, life is too short not to have fun with your outfits, especially when we spend so much time at work. Play around with colors, accessorize a bit more, and experiment with styles.

    Fashion is all about trying out new things, seeing what works best for you, and building upon it. Slowly but surely, you'll find that dressing up becomes the highlight of your day, and who knows, you might even find yourself planning outfits the night before, just like I do!

    Should you ever find yourself in a style rut, remember I'm here to help. I offer personalized styling sessions which can help you navigate your fashion choices, especially for work.

    Until next time, keep your style game strong, and always dress to impress!
