5 Classic Work Outfit Ideas

Workwear was my focus for many years on here when I first started blogging, and while my everyday outfits are a little more causal now, I still regularly need a good business meeting outfit with a range of clients and vendors, so wanted to get back into sharing office-friendly looks again! Here are a few easy outfit formulas using closet staples that would work for a smart casual to business casual office.
