Stylish Work Outfits – Neutral Colors

Dressing up for work should be fun and interesting too. Well…as long as you’re not in a time crunch! No fun there! Or interest! Lol! Okay so maybe I should say I believe we should all have stylish work outfits in our closets. Or at least make the work outfits we already have as stylish as possible. It has been said that when you look good, you feel good. And I think it’s okay to look and feel good at work too.

I’m not sure what the latest office fashion is (only because I believe we create our individual trends), but I know neutral tones are always in style for wherever and whatever. And that includes the workplace. Neutrals are also always fairly easy to pair with other colors, so we don’t have to think too much about what we would be able to wear them with.

The Look:

Here are some stylish work clothes combinations that women of all sizes would also find comfortable.

This Sheer Lace Black Top (which I LOVE!) is from CurveGirl and it comes with an attached tube top. It would go perfectly well with a pair of pants or this Striped Flared Skirt. Personally, I like how the stripes complement the stripes on the sheer top. And the top costs only $17.99!

Striped Flared Skirt

Sheer Lace Black Top  Round Toe Pumps Long Layered Necklace

Add a pair of cute Round Toe Pumps, a long layered necklace like this Double Pearl Pendant Necklace from Stella&Dot, and you are all set! If you would prefer to cover up your legs, whether it be for the weather or for modesty preferences, a pair of tights with the skirt, and/or maybe a pair of high boots might do the job.

Changing It Up:

To switch up the look should be easy given the neutral colors. You could go all black Printed Pantswith the Sheer Lace Black Top and add these slightly flared Slim Pants from Torrid, as well as a pair of black flats or heels. Or you could add these straight cut Printed Pants and a nice sweater or jacket. Tan pants or a tan skirt are also great options.

Beige or brown shoes would also go well with any of the combinations mentioned. And just in case you didn’t know, CurveGirl sizes go from a 4 to 46! They also have the option to customize their items.

So if finding the perfect fit has always been a chore because you have a long torso, or extra hips(like me), or because you’re one of many skinny curvy girls, then you should send them your measurements! They will make your clothes specifically for YOUR body. I think that’s pretty cool! For the prices they offer and the customization services they provide, I am a fan! And no I wasn’t paid to rave about them; I’m honestly just a fan 🙂

Savvy Saving Tips:
One way I try to save when shopping online is to try to find as many items as possible on one site. It would usually save me some money either in shipping fees or some type of discount. It also saves my valuable time.

Final Words:

My all-time favorite personal trend is being comfortable in whatever I’m wearing – at least for the most part. Although, I know we all have that cute pair of shoes that we love, but that doesn’t really love our feet. And every now and again, we would put on our game faces and decide we are wearing them because they go perfectly with an outfit! I’ve been there (but with comfy flats waiting in the car though) : )

All in all, I think we should always factor in comfort in our office fashion trends. Because Style + Comfort + Work = Being stylishly comfortable enough to give our best to our work ; )

Let me know what you think, and/or what ideas for outfits you may be interested in seeing next!

  2. I love that you included something for the curvy girl! It’s always hard for me to find stylish clothes that I enjoy wearing
    Very thoughtful article! Great job!

    1. Yellow is such a bright & happy color 🙂 And I think people sometimes think it’s too “happy” for work lol. But I like the idea of doing a post about ‘bright & happy’ colors that are perfectly suitable for work. Thanks for the idea!

  3. Hi Yemi,

    You make a great point about the value in feeling comfortable at work. It is much harder to feel confident if we feel uncomfortable and always need to be fidgeting and tugging at our clothes.

    I also like the look of the printed pants. I wear printed pants all the time. They are so fun! I have bursitis in my hips and cannot wear fitted pants anymore so I have had learn to embrace less traditional work attire. I now enjoy it though and people expect me to show up in interesting clothes that don’t look like everyone else. Luckily, there are many printed, soft, flowing designs available now.

    1. I agree! Printed pants are really fun. And they can be dressed up or worn casually.
      Great that you’re rocking your work attire and enjoying it. That’s what matters! 🙂

  4. Yemi I just love your site! i recently started a new job, i had been looking after my son for two years and realised i had absolutely no work clothes! i had given them to charity or thrown away in an attempt to clear room for the baby lol, so i had to do some shopping!
    i completely agree with you that comfort is the most important thing, you can’t be at your best if you don’t feel good.
    i love the printed trousers you have shown, they look so comfy and stylish, will definitely be checking out curve girls, it looks right up my street!
    great post i will be bookmarking your site 🙂

  5. Oh man, those grey mary janes are adorable. I am totally with you on shopping online and buying as much stuff as possible from one vendor, you can get the best coupons that way for sure, and shipping generally for free. thanks for the great tips!
