As a working professional, your typical work week may involve an early morning rush with little time to get coffee. Also, you may get home late and exhausted to start planning your outfit. A simple workwear outfit idea you need in your closet is a dress.

Dresses are so easy to wear with little styling effort. All you need is to add a necklace or wristwatch and a pair of heels to start your day. There are so many options of dresses you can choose from. Midi dresses, bodycon, stripes, or A-cut or belted dresses.

Personally, I love bodycon dresses or belted dresses. These types of dresses make it easy to look put together. So, I opt for dresses that flatter my frame. They are so many options; floral dress, stripes, or bodycon.

Another outfit you need to get back to work is a structured blazer. It is a versatile outfit you can wear on casual tops, tee shirts, or bodysuits as workwear. So, with a blazer, you can easily transition your casual wear to a work outfit.

A blazer on a dress or tank top makes it easy to transition from work to party wear. All you need is to switch your flat workwear to heels and statement jewelry.

For your back-to-work outfit ideas, go for vibrant color or pattern blazers for your summer work wardrobe. This adds a touch of color to your workwear.

Shirt dress

Another of the 6 back to work outfit ideas you need right now is a shirt dress. A shirt dress is a classic fashion piece to own. You can shirt dress both as a workwear or casual outfit. A shirt dress is not really classic Monday wear if you’re working in a firm that is strict on dress code.

I also work in a firm with a strict dress code. Since the rule is always less strict on Fridays, why not? You can wear your shirt dress to work on Fridays or Thursdays as I do. For me, a striped button-up shirt dress is classic workwear.

Also, for those of us working from home, you can wear knits for your zoom meetings. For your workwear or work-from-home outfit, you can shop knit tops, dresses, or sweater tops.
