The Market Common

Dress like it’s your job

We’re getting down to business in 2020, and that means dressing the part. So, we hit the streets here at The Market Common to gather a few on-the-job looks that will turn heads at the office. Let’s just say we did all the work for you!

Dress to impress by keeping it simple. Start with a light cotton pant, and then layer, brighten and soften with any of J. Jill’s solid or print cotton shirts and tunic cardigans. Accessorize with bling and step foot into flats or a pair of pretty block-heel sandals when the weather warms to put a little “spring” in your step.

Cassie Barker, style expert and store manager at White House Black Market recommends these handful of key items for a starter “capsule” closet that you can interchange for both work and casual lifestyles. She says it’s ideal to work up to 20 items, but you can work up to that promotion. From the timeless suiting blazer to the single pleat shell blouse to the slim pants to the faux wrap boot skirt and dot-print sheath dress, they all work and mingle together in quality, versatility and style.

At Chico’s, the style professionals suggest a dress code for the office that’s somewhere between working hard and hardly working. Pair a pinstripe jacket and classic white button-down that’s on board for the conference room just as much as they are for happy hour with blue jeans, heels and bling.
