Wearing casuals to the office is only partially based on a rule book.

Combine it with a cozy sweater, either tucked in or partially tucked, for a chic silhouette. Accessorize with a belt to define your waist, and finish off with ankle boots or ballet flats.

3. Tailored Jumpsuit

Layer it with a tailored blazer to add structure and professionalism to the outfit. Complete the look with classic pumps or loafers and minimal accessories.

5. Wide-Leg Trousers and Button-Down Shirt

6. Knit Sweater and Tailored Pants

For a Bohemian look, you need not always have to accessorize moderately or layer heavily when a simple knitwear top can do just fine for you. Combine a cozy knit sweater with tailored pants for a comfortable yet stylish ensemble. Choose pants in a slim or straight-leg cut for a streamlined look. Add loafers or low-heeled ankle boots to complete the outfit.

7. Structured Dress and Cardigan
