The New Business Casual


 Fair warning: This is not one of those, you-should-still-wear-a-suit-every-day-even-though-we-are-in-quarantine type of articles. I’m currently wearing Nike shorts and an old T-shirt, ready to work hard for a few hours then go on an afternoon walk. However, there is a time and a place to dress nice for work, even though you aren’t leaving the house. After all, nobody wants to see your athletic clothes in a Zoom meeting! Here are a few business casual (emphasis on casual) outfit ideas for you to try this week.


Eliza J Twist-Front Jumpsuit, Chico’s – $138

Switch out your pajamas for this chic spring jumpsuit from Chico’s! The bright green leafy pattern is sure to bring a smile to your face, while the V-neck, fitted waist and loose, wide-legged pants make this instantly flattering on everyone. Slip this on to feel comfortable and professional all day.

Halogen Long Sleeve Midi Shirtdress, Nordstrom – $99

Love the feel of your favorite robe? This is like that, only much more work-appropriate! This gorgeous floral print shirtdress features large yellow blooms, as well as smaller pink, red and blue petals. It is button up with a built-in tie waist (like your favorite robe), and looks cheerful and classy at the same time.

Scotch & Soda Double Breasted Blazer, Nordstrom – $248

Who cares what you’re wearing underneath – when you slip on this gorgeous, light pink double-breasted blazer, your outfit will get an instant upgrade! Wear it over a nice blouse, dress or T-shirt to make a fashionable, girl boss move, that all your coworkers will appreciate.

Convertible Berry Pink Single-Strand Necklace, Chico’s – $69.50

If you’ve been wearing athleisure for the past 5 weeks, it can be a hard adjustment. Start slowly by incorporating a fun new piece of jewelry into your everyday look. I love this pink, berry necklace from Chico’s, which can be worn long or short over any outfit. This will add a little sparkle to your day, and help you dress to impress.
