4 Work Outfits You’ll Wear All Spring

Deciding what to put on for a day’s work is an executive decision that you make—there’s no one else around to weigh in on the shirtdress-or-denim debate, and choosing heels over flats doesn’t require a data model. On a good day, this daily closet brainstorm feels creative and freeing, but early call times; wailing, impatient children; or plain old outfit ennui can strike at any time. For those mornings, we’ve lined up four back-pocket outfit equations so good, they practically solve themselves.

BUSINESS AS USUAL

This spring’s star shirtdress: a bright-white poplin one-piece that’s buttoned-up enough for the office (particularly with a checked overcoat) but doesn’t feel stuffy after-hours. The key to the desk-to-drinks transition here is a pair of striking heels, plus a rosy lip tint tucked into your bag.

JUST WRAPPING UP

The silk-blouse-and-belted-wrap-skirt combo is the paper money of workwear: It works pretty much everywhere. The look is even more effective when the means-business tie-neck top is balanced with a playful, itty-bitty print and statement slides. This is the time to pull out the power accessories: Nothing says business like a standout watch or a classic Hermès.

MEETINGS ON MEETINGS

It’s 7 a.m. and you realize your calendar is packed through 7 p.m.: exactly the kind of day the jumpsuit was made for. Keep the sleeves short (for slipping in and out of a blazer), the legs wide, and the palette neutral—then add a roomy tote and a pair of oversize yellow-gold hoops that shine in even the harshest fluorescent light.

THE HOME OFFICE

Sure, working from home means you’re less likely to end up chatting with colleagues in the kitchen, but a put-together look will boost energy and productivity in any environment. Swap the pj’s for wide-leg denim culottes, trade your T-shirt for an airy top with feminine details, and complete the look with an orangey-red balm and bold jewelry (in case you run out for lunch).
