Most of our wardrobes fall into one of two categories: work clothes and weekend clothes. We try our best to make certain items work for both, but wouldn’t it make all of our lives easier if we actually shopped with the goal of versatility in mind? We’ve taken the guesswork out of that goal for you and compiled some of our favorite on-duty to off-duty pieces. Scroll through our picks and start thinking of all the outfit possibilities that they’ll provide your multifaceted life with.
Shoshanna Dominique Dress ($360) in Bottle Green
This shift dress has a built-in versatile styling tool: a subtle zipper at the neck that can be lowered a smidge for date night.
Addison Seamed Ex Boyfriend Blazer ($258) in Antique White
Feminine eyelet sets this slouchy blazer apart. Swap it for your usual black blazer all summer long.
ASOS Culotte Shorts with Wrap Pleat Front ($67) in Olive
The length and color of these culottes have us sold. Try them with a crop top and Birkenstocks for the weekend, and pumps and a crisp white top for the office.
Mango Straight-Cut Boyfriend Gilet ($70) in Black
Try this chic vest over cut-off denim shorts for the weekend, or wide-leg trousers for work.
Band of Outsiders Embroidered Micro-Stripe Dress ($367)
Leather details add a touch of edginess to this sweet fit-and-flare frock.
Tibi Devlin Sandals ($425) in Black
High-heeled sandals are an obvious choice for the weekend, but if you’re going to wear sandals at the office, this chunky pair is the way to go. We love the subtle ‘90s flair.
Chinti And Parker Linen And Cotton-Blend Chambray Shirt ($215)
Dressier than your average chambray shirt, this version benefits from the addition of girly details. Endless outfit combinations await.
Nasty Gal Champagne Taste Cape Blazer ($68) in Black
We love a cape and this cape-blazer hybrid is the perfect day-to-night to weekend topper for any girl that needs a little more sartorial coolness in her life.
Sandro Cyrielle Draped Shoulder Shirt ($275) in Light Green
A pretty, breezy blouse gets the cool-girl treatment courtesy of a subtle cape.
Tibi Tapestry Print Track Pants ($345) in Black
Tapestry details add interest to these track pants, which we think is the most versatile style around as of late.
Robert Clergerie Jasg Oxfords ($412) in White
We love what’s going on with the geometric leather detail on these unique oxfords. More sophisticated than your average flats, this pair transitions perfectly from on-duty to off-duty. Try them with an all-black outfit to really let them shine.
Madewell Sahara Short-Sleeve Jacket ($118) in Olive Tree
We think this sahara jacket is in the running to replace our go-to military jacket. Try it over a fitted sheath for the office, or with a white dress and metallic sandals for the weekend.
Rag & Bone Gayle Leather Skirt ($795) in Black
You already know that leather is a favorite option for the weekend. In a longer flared style, now it can be a favorite option for work too.
