Work Wear Header 2

Imagine waking up every morning and knowing EXACTLY what you’re wearing to work.  Better yet, having all of the basics of your work wardrobe in your closet PLUS a multitude of mix and match casual business outfits. No more looking into your closet not knowing what to wear or wandering around the mall not knowing what to buy. All the work is done for you.

I’m Alison Lumbatis, creator of the style web site for real women Get Your Pretty On and I’d love to be your personal shopper and virtual stylist for the Work Your Work Wear Challenge! Watch this super short video to learn more about my style challenges.

How Does the Work Your Work Wear Challenge Work?

You’ll receive a shopping list of work wardrobe essentials perfect for a business casual office environment. Don’t worry – you won’t have to invest a ton of money to participate. A lot of the pieces might already be in your closet and you’re free to shop at your favorite stores. You can spend as much or as little as you want!

After the pieces are in place, you’ll have access to three weeks of daily outfit combos.  You can choose to style your pieces and wear the outfit that day or save it for another day. All of the outfits are able to be downloaded and printed so you can refer back to them.

What’s Included:

  • Your Work Wear Shopping List – A list of work wear essentials with links to recommended items plus a downloadable PDF to print off and take shopping with you.
  • Three Weeks of Daily Outfits – You’ll get three work weeks of different outfit combos to wear each day.
  • Facebook Group – Each style challenge has it’s own private Facebook group where you can show off your style, share shopping tips and make great friends. Most participants agree that this is the best part of the challenge!

How dressy will the outfits be?

The Work Your Work Wear Challenge will be perfect teachers or anyone who wants to kick their business casual wear up a notch. If you work in a dressier environment, you’ll be able to easily substitute pieces to accommodate it.  You’re also free to shop where you want and modify any of the pieces or outfits to suit your comfort level and style.

Here’s are some sample outfits from the challenge.

How Much Does it Cost to Participate?

If you were working one-on-one with a stylist and personal shopper, the average cost of a capsule wardrobe and three weeks of styling options would be well over $1,000! But one of the beliefs that I founded GYPO on is that great style should be accessible and affordable for everyone.  That’s why I’ve made participation in the Work Wear Challenge available for just $29.99.

Will I Have to Invest a lot of Money into the Shopping List?

It’s really up to you how much you want to spend. Many of the pieces will already be in your closet, I’m just showing you different ways to pair them up. If you decide to buy new items, you’re free to shop at your favorite stores and spend as much or as little as you want. Shopping list recommendations will include items from Target, Loft, Nordstrom, J. Crew, Boden, Old Navy, Banana Republic and other stores with both online and in store shopping options.  For this challenge, I do recommend investing in higher quality pieces that will stand the test of time.

What season is this challenge appropriate for?

The work wear challenge non-seasonal, meaning it can be worn in an office most times of the year.  Simply add or remove layers for comfort.

Does this challenge build on pieces from the other challenges?

Yes, if you’ve participated in past challenges, it’s very likely that you’ll get to use a few of those pieces in this challenge too.

What if I can’t find the pieces on the shopping list?

Most of the pieces can be found anywhere but just in case, I do provide substitutions.

I don’t work outside of the home, is this challenge right for me?

While there will be opportunities to substitute pieces to make the outfits more casual, this challenge will primarily be for office wear.  If you’re looking for a way to kick up your casual style a notch though, or keep the outfits for future reference, you’re welcome to participate.

Does this challenge include weekend outfits or just Monday through Friday?

This challenge will not include weekend outfits, just work days with a casual Friday each week.

What Other Style Challengers are Saying

I ABSOLUTELY love this challenge! One of the best parts of this list is how affordable it is! Each person can choose to spend as much or as little as they want on clothing items. I love that we will style clothes that can be from Target or Saks-and look absolutely gorgeous!

Thank you! Today was a breakthrough for me; I felt so good, confident and stylish, and yet still so comfortable–in my outfit and in my own skin. I wasn’t hiding under baggy clothes, wasn’t tugging on something that didn’t fit well, and wasn’t wearing something that didn’t feel like ME. What a difference! From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU all!

Looking at the clothes in my closet a whole different way…not something I would of even thought of a week ago…thank you for “challenging” me to go outside my “comfort level”!

I’m getting so many good ideas here and learning so much from what you’ve shared, I’ve started a little folder of pics/ideas to take shopping. I feel like I know what I’m looking for and shopping smarter. Thanks!

It’s nice to have a group of positive women encouraging each other. It’s very refreshing in our world-I’m feeling good about my body and clothing choices instead of feeling like I don’t measure up. Thanks Alison.



GYPO Style Challenges are about so much more than the clothes. They’re about changing lives one outfit at a time. Read what some past participants have to say about how it’s effected their lives.

This challenge has brought a NEW me. I am a teacher, a mom, wife, and this has helped bring a smile to my face every day! I am getting compliments on my outfits from teachers and my students are loving the accessories!” – Karan

“I’ve never been stopped by strangers and generally don’t get noticed. Don’t get me wrong – I’m extremely confident about my abilities, but not how I look. This week I have turned a corner. When I enter the office in the morning, the secretaries stop me to check me out. A total stranger at Target told me she loved my bright green trench coat and my scarf. Even middle school students have noticed that I’m looking different. And they approve. Earlier this week I texted my husband “I feel pretty” and he texted back “You ARE!” Maybe after a few more weeks of this I will believe it.” – Laura

“Besides having a ton of fun waiting for each day’s outfit to be revealed and tweaking it to fit my style, one of the best aspects of the Style Me Challenge has been the positive new friends I’ve connected with on the Challenge Facebook page! The kind words, humor, and genuine care for others have been such an inspiration and encouragement to me. No matter the age, body shape, or walk of life, it’s been a confidence builder to have a safe place to show my style!“ – Jena

“Just the thought of having all the right pieces and being ready to go out without having to stress about what to wear sounded like a dream. I had to sign up. It’s been exciting, from getting the list on the first day to the unveiling of the outfits each day, but little did I know that the Facebook group would be the highlight of this Challenge. How in the world do you have the nicest and most caring followers?! My family and friends have given me many compliments and feel that I am getting out of my comfort zone. The great thing about all of this is that even when I’m not physically feeling my best, looking good on the outside can make a big difference on how I feel on the inside. And for me, that’s totally worth it. 🙂 Thank you, Alison, from the bottom of my heart.” – Cathy
