Gone are the days of wearing pajamas to your kitchen table office. Many companies have made the switch back to the office amid the pandemic restrictions, us here at Glik's included (with masks, social distancing, and restrictions of course)! This new shift makes it the perfect opportunity to introduce staples you need for your office wardrobe.
1) The Heeled Loafer
All the rage right now is the heeled loafer! This shoe is giving us 90's nostalgia, and is the best pal of your favorite trousers and trench coat. A timeless classic taken to new heights, this trend will dress up all your favorite looks! Get the designer look, and skip the price tag with this Dirty Laundry dupe.
2) The Paperbag Pant
It's easy to see High-Waisted anything will continue to have a moment in the coming future. From mom jeans to leggings, every category is after the high-rise look- including your favorite business casual pants. The Paperbag pant brings a cute flair to the classic work trouser. Paperbag style garments feature extra fabric that rises high and compliments the waist. Our current favorites are Mustard Seed's Paperbag Waist Pants and Thread & Supply's Pilea Paperbag Waist Pants.
3) Collared Blouse
No model-off-duty look is complete without a crisp, collared shirt. This staple can be paired with almost everything: with a pair of straight leg denim, with your favorite leather jacket, layered under your favorite sweater. You name it- the collared blouse can do it! Thread & Supply creates an amazing relaxed fit version of this classic staple.
4) Midi Skirts
Midi skirts are the perfect match for the office! They keep wearing a skirt modest and professional, while still letting you play with fun patterns. Paired with your favorite cropped sweater, midi skirts make for an outfit so easy you'll have time to stop for your morning Starbucks. Currently, we are obsessed with this leopard skirt from Tres Bien. Looking for an everyday piece? Try Vervet Jean's version of a button-fly midi. Fashion Hack: Reuse your favorite long/midi summer dress by pairing your favorite cropped sweater on top. This gives the same midi/sweater look while giving your summer pieces new life!
5) Statement Blazer
One of 2020s biggest trends, blazers are quite literally everywhere. While they are already popularly known as a formal piece, they can be also be a casual Friday staple. Grab your favorite straight leg jean, graphic tee, and office sneaker for a comfy, end-of-the-week look. Thread & Supply's Olivia Oversized Blazer is the perfect staple to add to your collection! It's soft to the touch while keeping you polished.
