goop HQ gets quiet in August. The buzz in the hallways (and around the kombucha tap) is reduced to a low hum. Out-of-office messages come and go. We’re at our desks, but we’re picturing the weekend—and we want our outfits to mirror this mentality. In other words, they should work for coffee meetings and cutting out early. Below, five work-friendly pieces that play well on the weekend, too.
Wide-legs are work-appropriate when paired with a crisp button-up (leave it untucked to play up the exaggerated proportions) and sleek block-heel boots. Later, swap in a halter top to spotlight the tailored waistband and finish with a statement bag and kitten heels to complete the meetings-to-martinis transition.

Slip on a polished puff-sleeve cardigan and wraparound sandals to dial back the playfulness of a printed dress at the office. Come 6 p.m., shrug off the cardigan to show off the micro florals, sub in stilettos, and add a dusting of gold eye shadow: You’re ready for dinner.

For a crisp midweek look, layer a short-sleeve button-up under a little white dress and add tonal sandals and a streamlined shoulder bag. When the weekend rolls around, revisit the dress with pops of color, like a robin’s-egg-blue crossbody and a beaded necklace.
