1. Patterned Trousers
Patterned trousers are a way to take a more traditional work option and add a kick. They're also comfortable yet make a subtle statement. We recommend sticking to a neutral color scheme for more corporate environments. A neutral color scheme will also make it easier to mix and match with other tops in your capsule.
2. A Textured Skirt
Change up your regular black pencil skirt for a skirt with an interesting texture. Tweed, suede, brocade, leather. Have fun with your fabric choice. Remember to keep the silhouette of the skirt more traditional for more unconventional work materials like leather and suede. Try a midi skirt in these fabrics while tweed and brocade type fabrics can be worn in a-line or pencil skirts.
3. Wide Leg Trousers
Wide leg trousers are the miracle-suit of work attire. This silhouette is flattering to almost all body types. Since these pants are an unusual cut try them in a neutral color. Also check the length. If they trail on the ground too much they can look like they are swallowing you. At the right length they will make you look longer and leaner.
A shirtdress with a tie around the waist is figure flattering for most body types. This dress can go far beyond your work environment which is one more reason it's a great choice for your capsule. You can dress it up with heels for a more corporate environment and dress it down with flats for a more casual environment. It's an easy option to simplify your morning routine.
5. Boyfriend Blazer
An oversized blazer black blazer is another staple that's perfect for layering. It can be worn over trousers, a dress or a skirt. This option works for any environment including outside of work. Just wear heels to dress up the outfit or flats to dress it down.
