How Will You Wear White: For Work

White for work. We don’t just say “yes”, we say “absolutely”. And we don’t mean just a simple white button down. That’s great, but this season, there’s so much more. Blazers, suits, pants, skirts, sleek dresses – so many options and so many ways to wear them. It’s a great alternative to the basic blacks, and other neutrals we often wear to work – yet just as powerful and versatile. And it can be worn with color and pattern to lighten up your look. Though, an all white outfit is absolutely chic for the office, too. Whether you work in a conservative environment or a creative one, we’ve got our top outfits to bring that powerful look of crisp white pieces to your work wardrobe.
Let us know what you think in the comments below. Check back tomorrow for some great white combinations for a night out and Thursday for our favorite white outfits for a casual day. Whatever the occasion, we’ve got you covered.

Look: Monochromatic. A sleek white suit has never looked more chic, and it evokes the same look of power as any black suit can. Since this is a seasonal investment, you don’t need to spend a fortune when you decide on this one from J.Crew. Starting with the jacket, their bi-stretch cotton has a soft, yet structured feel, with just a bit of give in the modern fit that makes it comfortable for a full day at the office. The 2-button closure lays smoothly on women with bigger and smaller busts alike, and it has a trim, timeless fit (in Petite to Tall) that never goes out of style. The tortoise buttons give the jacket a polished finish that really pops when you wear all white with it. (Alternatively, we have to mention, Theory has done a relaxed white suit with an open jacket and drawstring pants that we equally love, and is great for a more creative environment.)

J.Crew uses the same stretch cotton as the featured blazer in this monochromatic outfit for a coordinating pair of trousers that have a straight leg and tab front closure. They pair effortlessly with the blazer and look just as good when you take your jacket off. They come in Petite and Tall as well, so tailoring just got easier. The slant hip pockets and back trouser pockets keep the silhouette sleek and slimming, which is a must-have for a pair of white pants for the office. Like the reviewers, we did find these pants give, so if you are between sizes in J.Crew, we suggest sizing down as these will stretch out a bit from their typical modern fit.

While J.Crew’s boy fit white shirt is a timeless option that will look great with anything, we love the look of pairing this cotton jacket and pants with Equipment’s drapey silk blouse for a contrasting – and so luxurious - texture. It removes the ‘matchy’ potential and just makes this a super chic work look. Equipment’s modern fit marries with J.Crew’s so it will lay wonderfully under the jacket – and on its own.

Your favorite nude heels look great with this outfit…and so do these updated penny loafers from Cole Haan. The fresh white sole and nude patent upper provides a touch of menswear inspiration to the slim lines of this suit that is so summer-right. The white sole and neutral color let the white monochromatic look really shine. And you’ll be so happy to walk out of the office to grab lunch since they are constructed with Cole Haan’s iconic Grand.OS cushion technology - super comfy. These will look great with any of your casual pants and jeans, too, so you’ll get plenty of use out of them.

A lighter color tote completes this look, and will go with your whole summer work wardrobe in its pale nude color and clean, timeless look that fades beautifully into any outfit, especially this white one.

Look: White with Color Pop. White dresses are especially fashionable this season, and finding the right one that will flatter your figure and give you confidence – especially for the office – is essential. Club Monaco’s tweed fabric is heathered with black threads to give it a white look that is a little more ‘user-friendly’ for a long day of work. And it helps show off the beautifully textured tweed that looks light and professional for the warmer weather. Of course, it’s the fit and style that really seal the deal. The v-neck and short sleeves are easy and professional, while the fit-and-flare silhouette and contemporary fit really work to accentuate your waist. The shape provides some ease around the hips and belly with its strategically designed inverted pleats. We love the slant pockets for that cool stylish finish.

The v-neckline is simple and a great reason to add a bit of color with Nakamol’s gorgeous statement necklace. The combination of faceted crystals, from deep grey to silver to beautifully pale pink, bring in the neutral white and black of the dress with just a pop of sophisticated color…and a whole lot of style. You’ll love wearing this necklace with a simple tee or your favorite LBD (little black dress), too.

Look: White with Neutrals. Mixing white with other neutrals isn’t fashion news, but it certainly looks good. For this work look, we’re mixing this creamy white Elie Tahari blouse with other shades of beige and grey for a stylish update to typical navy and black for the office. This blouse is an ideal timeless work staple in its modern fit in XS-XL. The beautiful split neckline has a standup collar, so it looks wonderful under a blazer. On its own, the simple design has delicate accents like shirring at the shoulders and back, and it’s long enough to tuck in or wear untucked. Elie Tahari also has a long sleeve version with a very similar neckline that will look just as beautiful with the rest of this outfit.

Rebecca Taylor’s easier contemporary fit works with Elie Tahari’s so the fit of this open jacket lays beautifully over the blouse in this look. And the open standup neck is just gorgeous over the blouse’s consistent neckline. This blazer is unlined, and the lightweight tweed has a bit of stretch to it, so it has the comfortable feel of a sweater with the polished look of a blazer, ideal for work. The sophisticated beige and pale grey used in the fabrics is posh and really shows off the tweed’s details. (If your size is sold out through the 'shop it' button, try here.) And if you prefer a longer blazer that covers your behind, Lafayette 148 New York’s version has the same color combination with a bit more room and conservative feel.

The touches of grey in the blazer of this outfit really pop when you add these Elie Tahari pants to the outfit. We love the medium grey color – so many work pieces are done in a heathered grey, but this even shade is modern and fresh. Wear the blouse of this outfit untucked to create a pretty layered effect with the shorter jacket and the simple cropped and slim style of these pants. The modern fit, along with a stretch lining, ensures a smooth and flattering finish. And you're going to love the sale price.

Not only do these gorgeous Vince pumps bring the neutral color combination of greys and creams together in absolutely gorgeous perfection, but the heel really elongates your legs, ideal with the slim and cropped style of the pants in this look. The grey is very pale, which coordinates – without trying to match – the grey in the pants. And you’ll be able to wear them with any color or neutrals in your wardrobe (treat them like you would any nude shoes), so you’ll get plenty of use out of them. Oh, and wait until you slip them on and feel how comfortable they are. You’ll see that Nordstrom notes they run large. We find this to be true if you have a narrow foot. Otherwise, we suggest taking your normal size. The white leather sole give these d’orsay pumps that final style finish that really makes the shoes…and this outfit. Note: Like any suede or nubuck, we always recommend spraying them with a protector to minimize staining.
