Business casual fashion does not have to be boring! Ali, the main character in the film “What Men Want” wears professional and chic attire to work and around town.

I will be giving some tips, tricks, and examples of how to rock work attire. You will also find where I got all the items and why I love them.

I love this first outfit because it is very easy to put together and  comfortable. I think being comfortable is so important for a work outfit, especially when you will be wearing it all day long.

For this outfit, I paired a silky black blouse with some thick flowy green pants. I also added some fun earrings and black loafers. I love the pants because they are professional, yet comfortable. I also think loafers are very on trend right now and perfect for when you are not in the mood for heels.

Loafers: Target

Earrings: American Threads

For the second look, I paired together a white cropped sweater with a high waisted silk skirt. I am obsessed with the cheetah print trend and think this skirt is perfect for work. I also added some black booties with gold hoops to tie it all together. I think this again is super trendy and work appropriate. You could even add a black blazer to add a more professional vibe.

This last outfit is the most professional out of the three. For this outfit, I paired a soft blue sweater with a white blazer and black leather skirt. I am obsessed with this outfit mainly because of the super fun and chic sleeves on the blazer. I also think leather is very trendy and edgy. This outfit is definitely a mix between professional and edgy, great for a stylish day at work! I finished this outfit by pairing it with some silver jewelry.
