The Dos and Don'ts of Office Dressing, According to Hillary Kerr

Crafting the perfect office wardrobe is a tricky task. How can you convey your personal style, try out new trends, and impress your co-workers all at the same time? Well, our very own Who What Wear co-founder, Hillary Kerr, is here to help.

Appearing on Access Hollywood, Kerr broke down the dos and don'ts of dressing for the office. Inspired by a chapter in her latest book, The Career Code: Must-Know Rules for a Strategic, Stylish, and Self-Made Career, the segment explained how to make five specific pieces work for your 9-to-5: over-the-knee boots, a sweatshirt, a slip dress, track pants, and a crop top. For example, you might think that a sweatshirt would be too casual for the office, but it just takes a few key additions to make it more sophisticated, including a pleated midi skirt and high-heeled sandals. Watch the clip below to see all of Kerr's tips.

For the segment, we styled this bag with a moto jacket, a slip dress with a turtleneck underneath, and ankle boots. 

Emulate Kerr's styling trick by pairing this with a blazer, track pants, and heels.
