That’s not an easy theme, work wear looks, for someone who hasn’t worked for 9 years. Not because I wouldn’t want to, you can read all about it here. And when I think of work wear looks at all, I immediately think of an office outfit, and I’ve never worked in an office. But of course I have a real work wear look like I wore when I was still working!
Stylish Monday is created out of a Facebook group of Life and Style bloggers. Every month we interpret a theme in our own way, fashionable wise of course. It’s a fun way to be creative with clothing and accessories. And to see how other women interpret a theme chosen by someone else. It is a fabulous fashionable way to create something beautiful with other bloggers.
Work Wear Looks
If I would have worked in a office I would definitely have worn a suit. In the trendy womenswear store where I was manager, we always wore the clothes that we sold in the store. This suit is from that store so I’m basically killing two birds with one stone. And I am wearing work wear ( what I consider work wear, a suit) and it’s from wear I used to work!
This suit is pre loved and I bought it a few years ago when I already had stopped working. But you can imagine how many clothes went home back then in my working days. Every day we received new clothing to sell. I also got a 50% discount. And it was always a pleasure to work all day in the store in the latest collection every day. That where great work wear looks!
Lets see what my friends wear to work!

There’s no reason why we can’t be both comfortable and professionally dressed at the same time. Here I pair a comfy metallic tee with an elastic waist skirt. Pointy toe flats keep the look dressy without the pain of heels.

When I was in my 20’s into my early 30’s, I worked in NYC when your personal style was just as important as the quality of your work. It’s been a hot minute since I dressed for corporate America, NYC-style and this is sort of how I imagine I’d dress if I magically dropped back into that life.

Back to the office means back to the classroom for me! Always feel like I owe it to my fashion students to look bright and colourful and happy to see them (even if still online!). In keeping with a professional look, thought this fun skirt paired with my favourite colour of blouse would be just on point to make them smile.
Joy of Joyous Musings
My Full Time job title is Executive Clinical Account Specialist in Women’s Health. My work wardrobe is business professional. I love easy sophisticated looks. An easy back to work look. I love a light plaid high waisted midi skirt for a sophisticated business look. I paired it with a classic satin ivory blouse and my favorite cap toe sling-backs. Jewelry added is my white Abalone KS choker.

One take away from working at home over the last year and a half, is that comfort does matter – and that comfort and business fashion CAN co-exist. As we begin to work our way out of joggers and leisure wear, it’s important to have a few basic essentials, like this pair of linen pants, to help make creating work-ready looks a bit easier. Dressing for work in the California heat can be a challenge, see how I make these pants work multiple ways (and stay cool) in today’s blog post.

In a casual work environment, a solid color shirt dress is a great option in summer. I loved the all black of the 1990s. Thus, I own a couple of LDB in different styles. This black shirt dress is my favorite work dress.
Emma of Style Splash
There’s no dress code where I work – pretty much anything goes – but I still like to make the effort and dress smartly. Most of my work is done from home lately, but I do have the odd few days in the office. I would like to wear heels, but in reality I can only wear them for short periods of time. I’ve had this skirt for a couple of years but haven’t worn it before. The top is an old one that comes out of storage every summer. My red bag is one of favourites for work as it holds all of my essentials.

Many of us are heading back into work versus zooming from home; or perhaps you’re doing a combination of both. As an educator, we are heading back into work in person and very excited about it! I am my school district’s Prevention Coordinator, which allows me to work with and train staff across the district. Therefore, I tend to dress up more so than most educators. Plus you know that I just like to be fancy, including going to work daily. The first day of school is still a special event requiring a special outfit!

And now lets party! Come on and join in and put your blog in the spotlight!
You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!
I absolutely love your suit. The striped top is a great way to spice it up. I also love the large floral brooch you’re wearing on your belt. You look fantastic!!!!!
Wonderful outfits from all of the ladies as well. They all look very classy and chic.
Thank you very much for your lovely comment!
Beautiful work outfit inspirations! Love your suit!
I agree. This wasn’t an easy theme for me either. But I love your look! It’s so chic!
Thank you very much Amy!
I would have a hard time with this prompt too as I haven’t worked outside the home in years! When I did work I tended to wear a lot of dress pants and blouses.
Did you work in a office then Joanne?
Your look is always sophisticated and the outfits you put together on your blog and Instagram would be perfect for most work environments. Thank you for providing stylish inspiration.
Oh thanks Nina, that is such a kind thing to say!
Love the spunk you brought to the suit with those colourful stripes! The flower accessory is also so good! Originality that I love!
I appreciate your comment a lot! Thanks Lucy!
I love this look on you, Nancy! That suit is so pretty and I really like the way the blazer looks on you belted. I keep trying to belt my blazers and it fails on me every single time! Oh well, I will just admire it on you instead! Your colorful striped sweater keeps your office look much more intersting than a plain top would. Beautiful, my friend!
Thank you very much Shelbee!
First, thank you so much for the link-party!
I love “business” attire, so your adorable suit is right up my alley, Nancy! I did a structured jacket today too, but as we roll into fall, I do find myself craving my Big Boss Lady looks.
Those are great looks right!
So much amazing work fashion! I love your suit and stripes combo Nancy.
I totally love this look, Nancy! Professional and pretty.
Thank you very much Michelle!
Nancy, a belted suit with a striped sweater is quite the fashion-forward look for work right now. Brilliant. You wear it well.
THank you very much Rena! It’s a bit more casual then the often formal look of a suit.
You look great in a pant suit and I love the colorful jumper under the blazer!
I love this look on you Nancy – it’s professional yet, fun and original!!
You all look fabulous in your work wear looks. You always look good in a suit Nancy. Jacqui x
Thank you very much Jacui!
I love your fabulous suit! It would be so hard not to spend all your money in a clothing store that gives you a 50% discount! This was another fun collaboration! I always love to see everyone’s interpretation!
It was! Yes this is such a lovely suportive group! And we are all so different, that’s the best thing about it!
