This week came our bimonthly "Where does everyone get their work clothes?" text in the group chat. One of my friends swiftly replied "J.Crew" to a slew of thumb's-up reactions. She followed it up to call out the brand's blazers, coats, and "amazing sales" specifically. So I decided to investigate. 

My findings were aligned, discovering endless pages of well-tailored workwear and mix-in staples in vibrant tones and updated neutrals. Whether it be a well-cut navy blazer, a pair of bright chino trousers, or a sophisticated sweater, the options for mixing up your workwear (office or work-for-home) are vast. Add in some functional footwear and classic elevated bags, and your workwear wardrobe is complete. 

Below, I've pulled my favorite essentials for updating your work wardrobe for the group chat and beyond. Keep scrolling to dress for success.
