Miss CEO: 5 Looks You Need to Climb the Corporate Ladder in Style
Whenever you think of corporate jobs, it’s easy to immediately picture drab pantsuits and lackluster outfit combos. Well ladies, we’re here to tell you that’s a thing of the past! Climbing up the corporate ladder doesn’t have to be done in boring blouses—no, Southern Made has the inside scoop on the latest trends for success.
From fabulous print dresses to the perfect turtleneck sweater, be prepared to walk through the office doors and have all eyes on you! Bland boardrooms are outdated for sure. It’s time to spice up the workplace and show everyone that beauty and brains go hand in hand!
Animal Print Dress
Dresses are a staple for your work attire, but now it’s time to take them to the next level. Combine your love for animal print and your love for meeting your quarterly numbers. Snag a leopard print dress similar to this one-off Southern Made’s rack and pair with a statement necklace. Go ahead and grab your favorite booties or ballet flats for some extra flair. For the chillier months, you can even slip into some stockings to complete your look. You’ll be turning heads for sure when you walk into the work with this little number!
Ruffled Babydoll Top
Oh, baby! We can’t help but think that babydoll tops go with almost anything, so of course they make the perfect addition to any workday wardrobe. You’re in luck! You can find this exact ruffled polka dot top right on our website. Pair this with jeans on casual Friday or tuck it into your favorite skinny slacks. To finish off this look, we recommend some nude pumps.
If your wardrobe for the day is a blend of comfort and style, we’ve got just the look for you. Cardigans are an easy go-to for any work get-up and they make the perfect addition for a chilly day. Slip into your favorite skinny slacks, throw on a comfy blouse, and layer with a long cardigan. We recommend keeping your top as neutral as possible so you can play around with a few different pops of cardigan color! Slide into some flat or heeled mules and honey, you’re ready to roll.
It’s a common misconception that linen should only be worn in the summer months. Well, we’re here to dispel that myth once and for all. We think linen is the perfect fabric for any season—when worn correctly, of course. That’s why this ruffled linen top, paired with a neutral blazer, makes the perfect showstopping outfit for the corporate office. Tuck it into some slacks or a midi a-lign skirt and you’ll be the talk of your department. Be bold and add some animal print wedges for an extra pop!
Turtlenecks are back and we are fully embracing them! They are the perfect piece to coordinate with the rest of your outfit. Try a twist on the look above to make the ideal pairing for your client meetings. Check out Southern Made’s turtleneck dolman sleeve top and slip into your lucky pair of cropped slacks. We also recommend adding in your favorite pair of pumps (plain, print, or patterned)! Accessorize with some geometric earrings and a bracelet set, and you’re on your way to the top!
