I wonder how much time we all spent trying to figure out what to wear to work. All the more people resort to some sort of work uniform as a way to waste less time in the mornings while getting ready to work. Having a work uniform though, isn’t exactly a science. But it sure helps to have to some essentials and a lot of inspiration. Today, I will share with you some inspiring images I found that could make work uniforms a little less boring and more stylish. Eventually I will build on these, keeping you to update as we go along from season to season. How about it?

Due to the fact that I work from home mostly, I don’t have to dress for an office like I once used to. That means that my work uniform is quite casual. A tailored suit jacket over denim pants, like in the image below is pretty much my approach to my work uniform nowadays. As the days get colder though, I add on scarves and occasionally a hat.

All of the pieces, including the beige paint suit, suit jacket, and polka dot and wrap dresses could definitely do some of the hard work for you and become your next best essentials.
