Easy Outfits | Floral Blouse + Bright Cardigan

We’ve completed the first week of outfits for the Work Your Work Wear Challenge. If you’ve never done a challenge with me before, this is how it works.  Participants get a shopping list of wardrobe basics (for this challenge, business casual basics) and ten days to get all of their pieces in place.  Then every day for the next three weeks, they get a new outfit combo created from the pieces delivered to their inbox every day.

For the next three Fridays during the Work Wear Challenge, I’ll be featuring an outfit from the challenge along with some of my favorite interpretations by the participants.

This week’s easy outfit combo is perfect for a business casual environment but works just as well for lunch with friends.  The key to this outfit is coordinating the colors of the blouse with the cardigan and flats.  You can repeat the formula over and over again with different pieces to create completely different outfits.

Easy Outfit Formula

Cardigan + Printed Blouse + Neutral Pants + Bright Shoes

The Pieces

Cardigan – A colorful cardigan brightens up your office days.  You can never have enough cardigans!

Floral Blouse – The colors on this floral blouse are even prettier in person.  They make it perfect to transition into fall.  A simple graphic pattern also works great.

Earrings – These simple statement earrings in a trellis design will be your new go-to.

Over Sized Watch – Forget the fussiness of stacks of bracelets for the office, an over sized gold watch makes a big enough impact for your every day.

Pants – A slim fitting ankle pant gives this outfit a more modern silhouette.  You could also opt for a stretch trouser or pencil skirt for a dressier look.

Flats – These cute bow flats keep feet comfortable and happy all day.  Or try swapping them for a bright heel to elevate the look.

Here are some of my favorite interpretations of this outfit by real members of the style challenge. Work Wear Week One
