As the world returns to the office after far too many months on Zoom calls, we’re all for leveling up our wardrobe without jeopardizing comfort. The concept of women’s workwear was once restricted to pencil skirts and heels that were far too uncomfortable for long-term wear; however, the idea of workplace attire has shifted over the last decade. We have seen bold colors, graphic tees beneath a fitted blazer and comfortable women’s shoes that are smart and functional.
As we move back to in-person work, we’re getting our wardrobe in line; we’ve compiled 10 of our favorite popular (and comfortable) pieces of work wear for 2023.
1. The Oversized Blazer from Everlane
We love this 95% Italian wool blazer from Everlane, a simple yet fashionable brand. The idea of an oversized blazer is perfect when paired with a straight pair of jeans for casual Friday, to a patterned, flowy skirt for that upcoming pitch meeting.
2. Wendy Tiered Maxi Dress from Anthropologie
Rely on Anthropologie to constantly provide unique dresses. This tiered Maxi dress would be a bold statement in the modern workplace, though one we’re sure would be a hit.
This midi skirt made of wool blend fabric features an elastic waistband for pure comfort, though holds sophistication in material. Excellently paired with a fitted turtleneck sweater to top off the tool with professionalism.
4. Striped Twist Front Maxi Dress from Club Monaco
We can envision this dress as the perfect Summer attire in your office. Classic, yet comfortable, Club Monaco bills it as the dress you’ll want to wear everywhere - from the boardroom to school pick-up.
5. Chain Shoulder Tote from Michael Kors
Throw your wedges into a large tote with ease. With a shoulder chain alongside saffiano leather, function and sophistication meet together.
6. The Slim Wool Pant from Everlane
A perfect pant needs to be living in your closet - no exception. A wool pant can be paired with a cozy sweater in the Winter to a floral t-shirt in the Summer.
7. Sleeveless Faux Wrap Dress from Club Monaco
The perfect all-in-one outfit in the Spring, when the weather is still cool. Paired perfectly with a turtleneck, some unique tights with flair and a wedge.
8. Tailored Double Breasted Blazer from Zara
This beautiful double breasted blue blazer from Zara offers a lapel collar with pronounced shoulders that are sure to make heads turn. Throwback to the 80s!
9. Maris Midi Sweater Dress from Anthropologie
We love this as another option from Anthropologie. This sweater dress would be paired with tights, and completed beautifully with wedges for style and comfort.
10. Riley Tailored Fit Shirt from Banana Republic
Everyone must have a fitted, white crisp shirt in their closet - and this one from Banana Republic is perfect. Consider pairing it with the Slim Wool Pant from Everlane.
While we are always on the search for style and comfort, detail and sophistication are just as important. In 2022, work wear for the modern woman is more exciting to shop for than ever as we move from our Zoom conference calls back into the office.
