7 items to make your work wardrobe more fun

From plaid jumpers to neon heels, there's something for everyone.

Whether you're just starting up the career ladder or you've been doing the daily grind for years now, it can be a struggle to figure out what to wear every morning. Sure, you can always stick with the basics – neutral colors, minimalist designs and cookie cutter, “I have that shirt too” styles, but let’s be real. It's way more fun to play around, try different styles and add some color.

But since it can be hard to figure out where that line between professional and too casual is, we’ve pulled a few, recommended picks to get you started! From the latest styles to the best that online shopping has to offer, we've got your back.

1. Stand tall

Where better to start your wardrobe revamp than with a piece that gives you “presence”. Yes, that’s right. Its long lines and high-waisted silhouette give the impression that you’re taller than you really are. Throw on a pair of heels and you really are towering just a little bit higher than you were the day before. Seems like a great piece to wear when negotiating that raise you deserve. ;-)

2. It's all in the bag

This bag is small, but mighty. Its many compartments, both inside and out, keep on-the-go, “I don’t know how she does it” women organized and on top of it all. There’s an outside pocket for your office key card or metro pass, as well as another outside pocket for your phone. Worried about pickpockets? No problem. There’s another, zipper pocket inside the bag. You won’t even need to try to stuff your wallet into this bag, because there are also (you guessed it!) built in pockets for your cash and cards. The bag also has a gorgeous fox on the front flap, and if that doesn’t convince you, I don’t know what will.

3. One of a kind

It may come as a surprise to longtime, work world veterans to see this piece on this list, but with many offices now relaxing their policies (pajamas are still banned, unfortunately), more than a few of you will get to rock this look. It’s one of the latest styles. It’s modern and unique, but as every woman knows – back me up ladies – what makes this piece a true winner is that it’s perfect as an office-to-evening look.

This particular piece has lots of small design details that have made it a fan favorite, including: light material that keeps you cool during summer, a not-too-daring v-neck, a figure enhancing waist belt and billowy shorts that make your legs look extra slim.
