As style aficionados, we love layering and experimenting with our outfits as much as the next fashion girl, but sometimes we just want a look that’s edited and streamlined, especially when it comes to our work outfits.

Enter: these easy and simplified work outfits that only require two items (maybe three if you include your shoes) that steal the show.

So for those days when you’re in the mood to simplify, scroll below to try these staple combinations that look chic, practical, and polished.

A stylish and professional dress layered over jeans (if you can wear them at your office) or cropped pants is a sartorial match made in heaven. Tip: Make sure your dress has a front opening like a wrap or button-down closure.
