    35 Things That'll Make You The Best Dressed In The Office In 2019

    *Posts OOTD* *Waits for promotion*

    1. A printed midi dress in ~18~ patterns so you can cheaply stock up on a slew of chic and professional go-tos. Heck, get one for Monday through Friday (but Saturday is for sweats).

    2. A cinched peplum top for keeping your wardrobe in full bloom, even when the rest of your motivation is wilting.

    3. A plaid button-down midi skirt that'll make your closet look so sophisticated, you'll feel ready for whatever presentations come your way.

    4. A pair of ruffled leggings, because these'll prove living in comfort can actually look very professional. Will you wear these for the next 365 days in a row? Absolutely.

    5. A silky wrapover blouse so you can ~smoothly~ transition from the weekend to Monday. Are you happy you're there? Eh. Do you look promotion-ready? Absolutely.

    6. A faux leather watch with a chic starry face for elevating you to Rolex-level style, and whose *timeless* sophistication might even inspire people to share their rolodex.

    7. A pair of wide-legged trousers that'll guarantee you a sweeping entrance when you burst into the conference room to demand a raise.

    8. A structured long vest, because this'll stylishly top off any old top and make your usual go-to's look extremely adult. People might even think you know how to use Excel.

    9. A printed silky bandana so you can easily add some stylish appeal to the very same blouse you've been wearing forever. Today is the day it says, "Hello, I will take my raise in CASH."

    10. A knit sweater with dramatic sleeves for staying cozy all day, yet looking like you put in a ton of effort this morning. Did you really sit on your bed staring at the ceiling? None of their business.

    11. A set of patterned stockings that'll give your usual rotation of dresses an easy update. Meaning they will NOT look like you just picked them from the hamper.

    12. A jersey cold shoulder dress, because it's time to *shrug off* hump day blues of having "nothing to wear." This'll quickly become your favorite one-and-done.

    13. A pair of fashionable Chelsea rain boots so stormy mornings never damper your ability to look presentable rain or shine. Your outfits won't be interrupted by clunky galoshes any longer!

    14. A velvet button-down tunic for throwing over even leggings (!!!) and still looking extra dressed up. BE STILL, MY HEART.

    15. A pair of high-waisted belted trousers that'll give your everyday blouses some welcome flair. Leave your casual jeans behind in 2018.

    16. A bodysuit blouse, because you'll never have to worry about whether your top is tucked is in. This'll do all the work of looking neat for you.

    17. A printed blouse dress with a sophisticated tie so you can rely on a look that requires zero effort, but has unlimited ~payoff~.

    18. A pair of elastic ballet flats for helping you look polished at the office, minus the *sole*-crushing heels. The next 365 days are going to be nothing but comfy feet. I'm not crying, you're crying.

    19. A tulle maxi skirt that'll have you twirling in the office when you spend 9-to-5 basking in compliments. No one will even notice you "forgot" to reply to that email...

    20. A colorblock sweater dress, because your wish just came true: you can now feel like you're wearing pajamas to work — AND still look stylish as all heck. We might even enjoy sitting at our cubicle...

    21. A pair of leather leggings so you can ~kick up~ even casual work wardrobes with some edge starting this month — I highly suggest you wear these while listing all the reasons you deserve a raise. You'll feel more than badass enough to do it.

    22. A striped tie-front jumpsuit for throwing this on five minutes before work and still winning Best Dressed. Add this to your resume ASAP.

    23. A ribbed turtleneck dress that'll make sure you're up to your neck in compliments the minute you walk into the lobby. Believe in the power of this dress.

    24. A puff sleeve peplum top, because this'll help you channel some Kelly Kapoor and bring much-needed drama to the office. The good kind, of course!

    25. A delicate necklace and crawler earrings you can wear every day if you're one to forget to put on jewelry. Every outfit will look upgraded with these (even when you forget you even have 'em on).

    26. A patterned pleated skirt with an asymmetrical hem so looking polished never has to feel boring. Welcome to standing out among all those black suits.

    27. A retro midi dress for making you look so effortlessly put-together, people wonder if you were appointed CEO. Feel free to tell them yes.

    28. A pair of buttoned high-waisted jeans so you can still wear black denim 365 days a year, but now you'll look on-trend and a heck of a lot more put together.

    29. A mini fabric steamer that'll ensure you won't ever show up to work in a wrinkly blouse again. The small design makes it easy to use, but is powerful enough to have you out the door pronto. Guess who doesn't look like they grabbed their top off The Chair in the morning anymore?

    30. A cashmere-like poncho, because you'll be able to keep warm in the office AND never ruin your outfit. Not all heroes wear capes, but this looks a lot like one — just saying.

    31. A printed button-down maxi dress so you'll never run late again, thanks to this no-brainer number. Throw this on when you need to leave NOW and enjoy the compliments. Consider this your savior.

    32. A ribbed top with a chic waist tie for still *feeling* casual at the office, but looking a whole lot more sophisticated — all in just a cinch.

    33. A midi pencil skirt with a ruffled hem and available in *23* styles that'll stick to your side (no pun intended) for years to come, while still adding some unexpected color and design to your look. Tl;dr: it's fun, but will never go out of style.

    34. A chenille turtleneck sweater, because even if Jan from accounting messes with the thermostat again you'll be so cozy you won't even notice. AND you look extra polished? These are amazing times.

    35. A colorblock A-line dress with POCKETS so adding a pop of fun color to your office wardrobe is as easy as sending a fax. Actually, this is definitely easier.
