Now that Summer Fridays have come to an end, it’s time to buckle down at work. Don’t fret—use it as an excuse to invest in versatile new pieces that will have you looking professional and fresh at the same time.
A shirtdress is great for so many reasons: It transitions seasons with ease, it’s effortlessly polished, it’s comfortable—the list goes on. And while the style is usually considered safe, a bold print energizes the work staple, giving it a playful edge.
THE SPORTY PANT

This refined figure-hugging midi-length knit dress from Narciso Rodriguez is a sleek day-to-night option, especially paired with kitten heels. It’s also the perfect canvas for accessorizing, whether you go minimal or adorn with a bold pendant.

THE JEWEL-TONE SUIT
A well-tailored suit doesn’t have to feel corporate. Opt for a rich jewel tone in a modern silhouette, like this one from Céline. Pair with white booties to keep the look fresh. The best part? You can get mileage out of wearing the jacket and pants as separates, too.
