Victoria Beckham has some seriously chic business style. Whether a pencil skirt or sheath dress, she pulls it off like nobody else’s business. Early this year, Victoria perfectly accented her printed sheath with a vivid burgundy bag and cardigan – the season’s hottest hue. A belt and a pair of nude pumps tie the whole look together while keeping the accessories to a minimum with just a watch. Get the look!

You can add a fresh look to your business suits with colorful blouses and unique patterns. For the warmer months, we recommend sleeveless shells or short and cap sleeve blouses. They eliminate bulk and with the right styling still look professional under your suit jacket.
A customer favorite, this Banana Republic Silk pleated bib top is easy and comfortable with a knit body. Since it is constructed in a more casual fabric, we recommend layering it under a suit jacket you can button for meetings. The silk neckline will stand out under your blazer. Banana Republic Watercolor print tank is more versatile in a soft print and neutral color palette. It is also available in Tulle Pink if you would like to add a soft touch of color.
Elementz Top, Sleeveless Pleated Mockneck from Macy’s has a conservative neckline allowing for a more punched up color. This style also comes in a vibrant chartreuse. When wearing a blouse with a more voluminous neckline, like this Alfani Top, Printed Silk Cowl Neck Shell, pair it with a jacket you prefer to wear open.
Ruffle Panel Front Top from The Limited combines both pattern and unique styling. We would wear a blouse like this under a tan, white, or black suit. In a more contemporary office, add a bit of shine with this Romantic Ruffle Top.
In buttercup stretch georgette this sleeveless button-front blouse has a tie at the ruffled neckline. We love how chic it looks tucked into a high waist skirt. By adding a blazer, Antonio Melani “Baylee” Blouse is office ready. Also found at Dillard’s, Antonio Melani “Jackson” Blouse layers beautifully with Spring’s neutral shades.
By adding a touch of color or subtle print to your suits they will feel fresh for the office. Sleeveless styles can also be layered under cardigans for more casual days. We have a large selection of Workchic Tops available on our site. If you work in a more conservative office select one element to accent. The more contemporary your office environment the more you can play with color and patterns. Use your judgment to select the perfect blouse to update your professional suits.

When buying a business suit it is important to find a style that fits you. If you are petite you want to give the illusion of a long and lean silhouette. If you are curvy you want to work with your curves to accentuate them in an appropriate way. We have tips to help you make sure your next suit fits right.
Petite Business Suit by Workchic featuring J Crew
If you have a small and petite frame a pinstripe suit will elongate your look. You can go with one or two button blazers but find a style with princess seams. These allow for easier tailoring to shape the jacket to your body. Trousers should be a slim fit with a straight or narrow leg. Sharp oxfords continue the long line. We went with a simple v-neck tee and made this chic tapestry necklace from JaLa Designs the focal point.
Business Suit for Busty Frame by Workchic featuring DKNY
If you are more curvy or busty, double breasted blazers help keep your look buttoned up and professional. We paired it with a pencil skirt to add more femininity. This jacket also has seeming to counture your waist into the skirt. A printed blouse will pop underneath a buttoned up blazer. Highlight the look with two toned earrings from Twisted Silver. We also found some bracelets with this effect. The rest of the accessories are simple and chic in black.
Long and Lean Business Suit by Workchic featuring J Crew
If you have a long and lean silhouette, brake up the line with darker trousers. We also went with a peplum jacket for soft curves. Three quarter sleeves means you don’t have to worry about the length. We paired the wide leg pants with a pointed toe ballet flat. To pop this outfit we selected a plum blouse and matching bracelets.
We’ve shown you navy pinstripes, black double breasted, and khaki peplum jacketed suits. Each style has it’s own unique details to help you look taller, slimmer, or softer and more feminine. Dress your unique frame with the style that will accentuate your assets while maintaining your professional image. Then visit your tailor to make sure the fit is perfect!
