It is rare that my schedule is the same from one day to the next. For instance, my schedule could be completely full as I dash like a madwoman to a meeting in the AM, a showroom appointment after lunch, dinner with my family, and then a blogger event in the evening. An ever changing schedule means that my wardrobe needs to be flexible as I go from one thing to the next. With such lifestyle, I definitely make it a point to shop for items that are easily adaptable to any occasion. If you’re in the same boat, below are 10 updated pieces to freshen up your work-to-weekend wardrobe.

For those with a strict office dress code, there’s a chance you might have to succumb to wearing business casual on a day-to-day basis. Fear not, because there are plenty of blazer options that will allow you to stylishly transition into something for after hours. Grab an oversized option this fall for your meeting and pair it with a button up and skinny trousers. However, come time for play, get rid of the undershirt and swap the pants for a sleek mini.

Animal Print Dress

I don’t know about you, but I feel unstoppable in a chic dress, especially when my schedule is at full capacity. Animal print dresses are the perfect upgrade to your typical solid colored ones. Not only are they comfort and versatility but naturally eye catchy too. When choosing a dress for all-day wear, make sure to rock one that mid-length and not too revealing.

White Blouse

Crisp white blouses are by far the most versatile for jumping from work to happy hour.

They are still incredibly professional when styled modestly. However, all you need to do is add a few accessories, such as a lace bra and statement earrings, and it instantly becomes more flirty and playful.

Leather Leggings

Leggings are some of the most versatile garments to exist. Not only are they great for layering underneath everything imaginable, but they feel so good on especially as temps drop! I’ve taken faux leather leggings from the airport to blogger event to business meetings. You can dress it up with a blazer or down with sneakers – and they look flattering either way.

Utility Jumpsuit

Although, they don’t necessarily make going to the bathroom easier…they do make hopping from the office dinner to the bar as easy as 1-2-3. I have discovered the key to rocking the jumpsuit is to ensure it fits you correctly (correct length, not too baggy, silk textures etc) so it doesn’t end up looking frumpy. Don’t forget to add heels for that finishing touch!

Hair Accessories

One of the bet ways you can elevate any boring work outfit is to play it up with hair accessories. Whether it’s a trendy headband or pearl barrette, you can take your outfit to a whole new level with extra style points. This chic hair piece will flow seamlessly into after hours too.

Leather Trench

Not only should you shop for core outfit pieces that can be worn for work and play, but also outerwear. Come fall and wintertime, I love busting out my leather trench coat for just about anything. It adds some edge to your workwear wardrobe.

Slip Skirt

A midi slip skirt is a girl’s best friend when it comes to finding an outfit that balances between business and relaxed. Luckily for us, flouncy midi skirts are still very much in and very much workplace appropriate. If your office dress code isn’t too strict, try opting for more trend worthy options such as neon or animal print.

Versatile Tote

As much as I love mini handbags, they’re often not the most practical when I’m on the go. Instead, grab a versatile carryall that will take you from boss babe to off-duty model in an instance. A roomier bag also means you can pack a change of shoes, laptop, and umbrella all in one!

Kitten Heels

Whether you hold a traditional desk job or a more unconventional job like mine, sometimes all you seek in the morning when getting dressed is comfort. However, I never like to sacrifice my sense of style for ease of dressing. I find that kitten heels are perfect for finding a common ground between the two. Plus, they can look just as cute dressed up or down, making them the perfect transitional footwear.
