Do you know that feeling of even when you finish everything on your list, you still feel like you’re missing something? Between work, errands, responsibilities, activities, and fun, it’s a never-ending struggle of running from one place to the next! Of course we complain, but it is kind of nice to be busy. At least we’re not bored, right?
Well, this post is for our fellow ladies on the go. We know how hard it is to be in a million places at once, especially if all of these places have different dress codes. A common scenario is rushing from the office to happy hour or to another engagement. You want to look professional for work, but not too stuffy that your outfit isn’t versatile enough to take anywhere else. And for those of us strapped for time, going home to change just isn’t an option.
So for girls on the go who need business looks that will fit the bill just about anywhere, check out the below ideas…
1. A Modern Pants Set
Pants sets are a little antiquated and very boring. The lady on the go needs something as up-to-date as she is, and that’s why a modernized pants set is the way to do business wear. Try a pair of high-waisted pants that flatter the figure, then add a fun blouse topped with a tailored blazer. Adding or shedding a blazer is the best way to transform a look without even trying. As for footwear, a nice pair of mules will be trendy and easy to run around in.
2. A Shirt Dress
When choosing a dress that’s appropriate for both work and after-work activities, a lot of times it helps to pick something with a fun print. The idea of a shirt dress is perfect, because the collar is modest, yet the print is playful. It’s great how this site has an entire section titled “Wear To Work,” which just so happens to include shirt dresses! With a pair of comfy low heels, this look is ready for anything.
3. A Beaded Dress
A little bling never hurt anyone! Like this article suggests, a beaded dress is perfect workwear that can easily transform when you need it to. The key here is that the cut of the dress is appropriate for the work environment, but the embellishment gives it a little something extra. A pair of flats makes this outfit even more versatile for the girl on the go.
4. A Matching Set
One very hot trend right now is the idea of two-part matching sets, whether they are a top-and-pants or a shirt-and-skirt combo. These looks can easily be made business appropriate as long as you’re not dealing with a crop top. You can also add a jacket for work, and then when it’s time to head to your next destination, shed the jacket for a completely different look!
5. Leather Skirt & Smart Blouse
Inspired by this look that is tailored for women who work in conservative settings yet have a date after work, a leather skirt with a button-up is a great combo that caters to both sides of the equation. Especially when paired with a cool leather pencil skirt, a blouse can be unbuttoned a bit to loosen the look up a little.
