Now that the pandemic is starting to wind down and offices are slowly opening back up, it’s time to start thinking about how to upgrade your work wardrobe for a fresh new look! Whether your office dress code is business or business casual, there are some tips to follow and styles to add to your closet to stay in style all season long and beyond. Today, we’re sharing our top tips for dressing for the office and how to change fashion styles effortlessly so you can walk into work feeling like a new woman letting go of the old restrictive styles and upgrading to a more comfortable, professional look.
Yes, stylish comfort is the new post-pandemic look. As much as we love our sweats, some of us are ready to dress up again but not at the cost of comfort. So where do we start?
Whether you’re new to office life or you just need to refresh your look, here are some tips to consider while building out your comfortable work wardrobe:
Now that we got the basics down, let’s dive into the Stella Carakasi styles you need in your wardrobe to really refresh your work attire.
Every working woman needs a classic white button-up shirt in their closet and our Legacy Shirt is no exception. This top is a modern take on the classic, crisp button-up that everyone knows and loves. It boasts a half sleeve, unique back design, and an interesting covered front button placket. It can be worn with any bottoms and the best part? It’s flattering on many body types and sizes!
The Stella Carakasi Just My Style Top is the perfect layering piece for all seasons! During the warmer months, it can be worn alone and paired with tasteful accessories and in the wintertime, you can throw a blazer or cardigan over it! The flattering neckline of this top makes it ideal for office wear and the soft Modal® jersey fabric is super comfortable. This is a design you’ll want to wear both in and out of the office!
The term ‘Icon’ is thrown around a lot these days; a versatile style that stands the test of time, a piece that fits and flatters many different sizes and shapes, like the humble Tiburon Tunic, one style to which this title can truly be applied. The Tiburon Tunic’s versatility has a great deal to do with its ability to outlast trends; it’s the rare piece of clothing that can be worn for just about any occasion and in a variety of ways, from a workweek staple to lunch with friends, dressed up or down, belted as a shirtdress with leggings, or unbuttoned as a lightweight jacket. A true icon is something you will wear all the time. It’s a commodity, one piece that you can wear pretty much anywhere and feel comfortable and confident and know that you are neither overdressed nor underdressed, but always on-point.
If your office is cold all year round, you’ll need to pick up our Go To Cardigan to stash at your desk and pair with any outfit. The flattering accordion design makes this cardigan stand out from the rest and can be worn with so many different tops underneath. Once you get your hands on the Go To Cardigan, you’re going to want to add all of the colorways to your collection.
Sick of uncomfortable dress pants? Us too. That’s why we designed the Lounge Dress Pants from a wrinkle-free Tencel® Ponte knit fabric. While the style and silhouette look like your classic dress pants, it actually feels like you’re wearing ultra-comfortable yoga pants! It features a straight leg design that can be worn with cardigans, button-up tops, and more. You can quite literally go from the office to the yoga studio in these bottoms!
If the comfort of leggings are more your style, you’re going to be obsessed with the Stella Carakasi Slimming Ankle Pants. They’re made from the same Tencel® Ponte knit material as our Lounge Dress Pantsso they’re stretchy and very comfortable. Consider them your dressed up leggings because they work with pretty much everything in your closet. These bottoms are both stylish and flattering at the same time—talk about a win-win!
Stella Carakasi is a brand born of a love for the beauty of intelligent design, the inherent grace of feminine strength, and the necessity to treat our environment and each other with love and respect. We hope some of these designs speak to your own style, and help you refine and redefine your own style philosophy in the process.
