Women’s Business Casual Outfits for Spring 2020
While we may still be in the thick of winter, it’s never too early to start thinking about spring 2020, particularly business casual outfits for the office. Many offices have a business casual dress code, which means women have the freedom to dress in more casual outfits that blend comfort and style. If you’re wondering how to incorporate business casual looks into your spring 2020 wardrobe, here are some of the current trends for women’s business casual outfits that you need to try.
Believe it or not, tie dye is back and is very popular this spring! No, we’re not talking about the technicolour style from the mid-60s, but rather an updated, more subtle version of the look. Satin is always a great choice for the office, and this tie dye satin skirt from Velvet Trina is a great business casual staple for your wardrobe. With its charcoal and silver hues and ankle-length hemline, it pairs well with a simple black V-neck tee or a cropped sweater.
Yet another style that originated in the 60s is making a comeback in 2020…the polka dot! There is something so elegant and feminine about the polka dot, especially when worn in the spring! You can go all out with the same polka dot pattern throughout your entire look, or pair a polka dot blouse with white denim jeans. It looks refreshing and professional without compromising comfort.
A must-have piece in your business casual wardrobe is a white shirt. Opt for a slightly oversized fit and that will add volume and personality to your look. Pair it with your favourite belt and jeans for a look that pops, or tone it down with a dark cropped pant, like the Velvet Brittany Pintstripe Pant. In fact, when it comes to choosing women’s business casual pants, a cropped pinstripe pant looks flawless when dressed down with a loose top. Another option is the Velvet Mylie Georgette Dot Short Sleeve Blouse in cream. The subtle polka dots incorporation of one spring 2020’s biggest trends and add a playful touch to your work attire.
Women tend to stick within their comfort zones during the winter by wearing dark shades like navy blue, emerald green, burgundy, and shades of grey. The springtime, however, is the time to burst into pastels and vibrant colours like coral! Coral is refreshing and feminine and remind us of warm summer days at the beach. To enjoy these flirty colours while staying professional, you can combine a pair of jeans with a pop of coral, such as with this Velvet Whitley Ombre Stripe three-quarter sleeve blouse. The puffy pink sleeves add character to the simple denim, but the overall tone is refreshing and classy.
Another pattern that is on trend this year is snakeskin. Given that snakeskin can be such as bold print, it’s understandable why so many women are hesitant to adopt this look. There are subtle ways, however, to incorporate this beautiful print into your everyday wardrobe. For instance, choose a garment with just a hint of snakeskin, like this ankle-length pair of faded black jeans from Seven for All Mankind and pair it with a black turtleneck. Another option is to wear this Nation Gina Snakeskin Pajama Blazer. Add a black camisole underneath if the neckline is too low, and pair it with a chic pair of jeans and dazzling black belt. Mixing and matching snakeskin with denim always looks great and it’s super comfortable. If you want to take it up a notch, these snakeskin jogger pants look bold and chic and can be dressed up with a cream blouse and black blazer.
Knits and Sweaters
How can you transition between your winter wardrobe and spring wardrobe? The answer is layering! Choose a cashmere cardigan, like this Line Margaret Knit Cashmere Cardigan to wear on top of a light, flowy blouse. The neutral shade of the cardigan pairs well with various colours and pattens, and the soft material will keep you feeling cozy throughout the workday. You can also dress down a dark pair of dress pants with a zebra-patterned knit pullover, or a favourite for many trend-savvy women is to wear a cropped oversized white sweater. This fuzzy eyelash cable knit from BBDakota rates high among stylists, so be sure to have one on-hand.
Last, but not least, no business casual look is complete with the right accessories. An all-black leather tote bag or a soft suede satchel will not only dress up your look but give you enough space for all your day-to-day essentials. With little metallic details and hardware, you add a little edge to your look, which makes these bags perfect for a business casual look. Let’s not forget about your feet: As you transition from winter to spring, make sure to have a good pair of booties in your closet. These black booties from Vince Camuto feature a block heel, making them super comfortable to wear all-day-long. To turn up your business casual look, opt for a quality pair of black pumps, like these classic black pumps from Sam E Hazel.
