The Boss knows what she wants, and her workweek style effortlessly channels that CEO energy every step of the way. Combining a sophisticated edge with trend-forward details, this wardrobe is as buttoned-up at client breakfasts as it is at end-of-week happy hours with her team.
Monday mornings always feel a little hectic. That’s why suiting up in a look that easily conquers everything from school drop-offs to afternoon board meetings is crucial. Pair a confidence-boosting midi skirt with a black tie-front blouse to let the skirt shine, and get ready to take on the week in style.
An early networking breakfast is easy in a sharp monochromatic coat-and-sweater combo. Take the power duo one step further with creamy-hued denim in a wide-leg crop that keeps the silhouette modern with a raw hem finish.
The weekly brainstorm meeting calls for making bold moves, which is why a tie-front blouse in a retro-inspired stripe print is your next go-to staple. Keep the rest of the look streamlined in cropped navy chinos and bright heels.
Client dinner? No problem — especially if you’re feeling your look. A silk blouse outfitted with intricate chain link designs is cocktail-ready when layered beneath a black slip dress. A belted waist and heeled booties add the finishing touches.
Take the team out early for happy hour in your casual Friday ensemble. Comfortable dark wash skinny jeans add a laidback-luxe feel to an oversized plaid blazer and silky tie-front blouse. Heeled boots and bold accessories complete the look.
