Your workweek wardrobe, reinvented

Five completely different stylish outfits to wear to the office all week—using just 10 amazing finds!

Heading into the office week after week (and month after month) tends to leave most of us in a wardrobe rut. But having a limited amount of items in your closet doesn’t mean your look needs to be the same every day. All you need is a little smart styling, and you can reinvent your workweek. With that in mind, meet the only ten pieces of clothing you’re going to use this week, including an elegant Elie Tahari dress (number 1 above) and a chic pair of pants by Elizabeth and James (number 6 above). Now all you need to know is how to put them all together!

Thursday

Zip up the navy dress, and then wear the tweed jacket over it, closing it all the way up. Now the dress you wore on Tuesday looks like a sleek navy skirt. Pair the outfit with navy pumps and you can’t go wrong.

Friday

Bring back that blouse from Monday, this time untying the top collar, letting the black pulls hang loose down the front for a more relaxed look. Pair it with trousers, then add a black wedge heel to finish off the ensemble. Et voila! You’ve created an entirely different feel from Wednesday’s pant-ensemble.

Elizabeth and James Hanlon flare-leg trousers in black ($325, Neiman Marcus)
