Chic Work Outfits for Every Age

Stumped on what to wear to the office this week? I get it. Planning ensembles five days a week can be a frustrating task as enthusiasm for thrilling sartorial choices can wane by hump day. (We’re all guilty of resorting to the blazer and pencil skirt uniform.) Fortunately, with the help of style guru Rachel Zoe,  the legwork has been done for you. Here are refreshing, on-point outfits fit for your 9 to 5, whether you’re in the early stages of your career or an experienced executive. Ahead, 4 fabulous professional looks curated for every age range.

Age: 20s

Style tip: You have more room to play with of-the-moment trends and form-fitting silhouettes, but make sure to layer with long sleeve tops and polished outerwear to keep the look appropriate.  work-outfits-for-every-age-20s-600x600[1]

Age: 30s

Style tip: Experiment with textures and bright hues by pairing a black velvet blazer with fun printed trousers and pastel accessories. Keep the rest of the outfit refined with loafers and a classic button-down[1]

Age: 40s

Style tip: Opt for a demure midi skirt to pair with an elegant camel-colored sweater. Further elevate the ensemble with pointed-toe pumps rendered in a muted snakeskin print and a belted longline[1]

Age: 50s

Style tip: Covering up doesn’t have to mean frumpy. Play with proportions by teaming wide-leg trousers with a timeless chunky knit and elongate the legs with comfortable slingback pumps. Finish it off with a leather tote and trench[1]
