It’s been a while since I’ve been in the corporate world, but that doesn’t mean it’s not a good idea to have a few stylish separates in your wardrobe for the off-chance they’re needed. Plus, some of you may be gearing up for college graduation, and have job interviews {or job} attire on the brain. I remember when I graduated I had to go shopping for pretty much an entirely new closet – and yes, it was full of Express separates. They’ve always been my go-to for great ‘office’ basics, but I really love the fact that Express has done an amazing job making certain silhouettes more fashion-forward by incorporating different textures + patterns.

I like to think this look is classic, with a twist. I opted for this tiny grid print columnist pant – obsessed with the feel of the fabric! Not too heavy, which I prefer {I would suggest sizing up one, as the ‘columnist pant’ is on the slimmer side}. Paired with a black suit jacket to keep it conservative + a pop of blue. Side note on this tank – I wore the blush pink version recently, now the blue, and have since bought two additional colors. It’s the perfect tank; super soft, breaths, has movement + amazing color selection. Guys, it’s a must for your closet!

Are you happy with how the pants fit? I REALLY need new work pants and I’m struggling to find a good pair for my 5’3″ frame. I love the idea of the Old Navy pixie pants, but I’m awkwardly between sizes. But anyways, you look great!

In love with this entire look, and so perfect for the office as well. I can not wait to recreate something similar.

I like Express work clothes and nice blazer http://www.kblossoms.etsy.com

I LOVE this look. I haven’t had much need for office attire since I started working from home last year, but I agree that having some professional pieces on hand is always a good idea. Plus, I actually like workwear (shhh) when it’s as stylish as this.
