    Workchic Spring & Summer Style from Macys.com

    We are now featuring Macy’s products on Workchic.com! What does that mean for you? More stylish suggestions for your work wardrobe, of course. Here are some of our favorite items you can wear now and wear later.

    Macy’s Business Casual Spring outfit   line   Macy’s Summer Business Casual Outfit

    Wear this chic pencil skirt now with a floral cardigan, then when the weather warms up swap the cardigan for a flutter sleeve top.  For now we layered a embroidered scoopneck tank under the cardigan and paired the look with a Guess bracelet and Lucky goldtone earrings. We finished this business casual outfit with vibrant blue pumps.  For summer you can wear these chic pumps, but we also found a stylish alternative in a more neutral shade.  For more summer charm we added a statement necklace in mixed metals with a flower accent.  As you can see the gold earrings still work with this new ensemble. 

    Spring Outfit includes: Alfani Skirt, Basic Pencil Side Zip, Charter Club Sweater, Floral Print Cardigan, Karen Scott Top, Embroidered Scoopneck Tank, GUESS Bracelet, Black and Blue Bangle, Lucky Brand Earrings, Goldtone Open Drop, Rampage Shoes, Nicki Pumps Women’s Shoes

    Summer Outfit includes: Alfani Skirt, Basic Pencil Side Zip, Style&co. Top, Flutter Sleeve Floral Basketweave, Rachel Roy Shoes, Ellise Peep Toe Pumps Women’s Shoes, Jessica Simpson Necklace, Chrome and Goldtone Mixed Metal Flower

    Some offices may be business casual now, but in summer they loosen their dress codes and allow more casual ensembles.  This tunic from Lucky Brand Jeans is very versatile. Wear it now in your business casual office with a twill khaki jacket and dark brown stretch trousers. These textured, machine washable trousers were featured in O, The Oprah Magazine. We finished the Spring business casual look with tan flats that have buckle details over the toe and fuchsia drop earrings.

    When the temperatures rise and your office has more casual days, swap the trousers for a denim pencil skirt.  This topstitched peep toe wedge is the perfect blend of casual and sophisticated style. We finished the summer look with the same fuchsia earrings and a matching hobo bag for an extra pop of color.

    Business Casual Tie Dye

    You probably don’t think about wearing tie-dye to a business casual office. Normally neither do we, but we were inspired by May’s issue of Lucky Magazine. They featured accessories that range from preppy to ladylike and we couldn’t help but think how chic these items would look in your work wardrobe. We searched some of our favorite shops to find more styles perfect for your business casual office.

    A loose knit cardigan looks chic over black trousers. Add a belt at the waist to give the look more structure. A more subtle tie dye works in a longer wrap cardigan. David Cline Woman Tie-Dye Wrap Cardigan is available in plus sizes. Gianni Bini “Theresa” Cardigan has a more preppy feel and looks chic with chinos.

    Pleated Tie Dye Tunic, Ships 4/10

    M.S.S.P. Charmeuse Tie-Dye Dress can be styled for the office with a demi-cami and 3/4 sleeve jacket. You can also layer this Gianni Bini “Justina” Knit Top under that same blazer to mix and match your favorite styles. A Pleated Tie Dye Tunic, Ships 4/10 is ideal in a tonal color palette.
    Banana Republic Tie-dye jersey scarf Lucky Brand - After Shock Tie Dye (Moraccan Brown) - Accessories Gap Lightweight tie-dye scarf

    We found a few scarves to add to your business casual work wardrobe this spring. Banana Republic Tie-dye jersey scarf is perfect for pairing with a tan trench coat. While Lucky Brand – After Shock Tie Dye (Moraccan Brown) – Accessories is a bolder look during your commute. Gap Lightweight tie-dye scarf is perfect for all day in the office.

    Have fun with your business casual style and try a fresh tie dye print for the spring.  We’d love to hear what you think of the sophisticated twist on tie dye. Leave us a comment here or share your thoughts on our facebook page.

    Weekend Chic Style

    I met my dear friend Lia last Saturday for lunch and she was the epitome of Weekend chic.  What is Weekend Chic you ask? She created a workchic look that transferred to the weekend.  Just because you want to feel comfortable doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice style!  We loved how she wore a cardigan and ruffled button down blouse while pairing it with a statement necklace and skinny black jeans. Just the right touch of casual with sophistication.

    These are the key building blocks of your professional wardrobe. Whether you have a last minute meeting or a hectic morning, with these pieces you will never have another “I have nothing to wear” moment.  We’ve discussed some of these items in previous blog entries but here we will reiterate our top 10 must haves for your work wardrobe.

    1- Black Pants
    2- Solid Skirt
    3- White Blouse
    4- Fitted Blazer
    5- Cardigan
    6- Solid Dress
    7- Black Shoes
    8- White and Black Tshirt
    9- Classic Watch
    10- Tote Bag that will fit your resume

    With these pieces alone you could make several outfits for the office. Here’s an example using your black A-line skirt, tshirt, cardigan, black heels, watch, and tote bag. You are instantly Workchic!

    Women’s Basic Business Casual Outfit

    Styles shown from:
    Jones New York: Black Ponte Belted Skirt, Ships 1/7, The Ruffle Trim V Neck Cardigan in grey, White Solid Puff Sleeve Tee.

    Now you can personalize this outfit with a statement necklace, chandelier earrings, or swap out the tshirt for a printed blouse.  We pulled the Artemus Stone Necklace and Gemma Stone Earrings from Stella & Dot and also selected Hanii Y Brick Print Blouse as an unexpected alternative from shopbop.com.

    To keep you moving in the right direction we have created 4 more looks building on your basics. Check them out and shop now for regular, petite, tall, or plus sizes.
     
     
    For Petite ladies we started with a basic black dress and built up a business casual outfit from there.  Fashion cardigans can be just as useful as your basics when pairing them with neutral colors. That’s why we selected the pop of pink to highlight this wrap dress. The delicate nature of this styling called for your basic black flats as well. Cluster drop earrings and Celtic knot inspired ring completes your simple and professional look.

    Business Casual petite black dress

    Styles shown from:
    The Limited: Draped Wrapped Dressicon, Grosgrain Flower Cardiganicon, Cluster Drop Earringsicon, Crazy Eight Ring
    Heels.com: Tamia Flat – Black
     
     
    For Plus Sizes we used your black blazer, pumps, and tote bag.  For your personal touch of style, instead of a basic black dress we showcased one with a bold graphic print along the hem. To keep things office appropriate try a Second Base Demi-Cami underneath (newly available in plus sizes). Finish the look with teardrop earrings and black stud bracelet.

    Women’s Plus Size Business Casual Outfit

    Styles shown from:
    Lane Bryant: Black Knit Dressicon, Updated career jacketicon, Flame teardrop earrings
    Dillard’s: Liz Claiborne New York Beaded Stretch Braceleticon, Jessica Simpson “Josette” Peep Toe Pumpicon, Fossil “Hathaway” Glazed Leather Tote icon

      
    For all you tall ladies, we understand your issues finding pants and shirts that are the right length. So that’s where we started with your outfit. We pulled black pants and a white dress shirt to lay the foundation. Then we added on a pink cotton scarf from Silk Road Spirit, skinny belt, and copper bracelet. To finish the look we pulled back in your basic black flats.

    Basic Tall Business Casual Outfit for Women

    Styles shown from:
    Banana Republic: Banana Republic Womens Silky Coal Martin Skinny Pant, Banana Republic Tall french cuff shirt, Banana Republic Skinny stone-belt, Banana Republic Sandie knotted peep toe flat
    Dillard’s: Fossil Stretch Braceleticon
     
     
    As you can see having these core pieces in your wardrobe make building outfits easier and more fun. After all, accessories always look best glinting off a simple palette.  We want you to feel comfortable and confident in your clothing. It should be an afterthought once you walk out the door. Take one last look in the mirror then get down to business. Stay tuned while we turn some or our focus to your successful career.
