Spring is a transitional season that calls for a whole new wardrobe of spring work outfits. Lightweight fabric and colorful patterns are popping up everywhere, especially around the office. These outfits are fun and professional, so they’re still appropriate to wear to work. And even if you’re required to dress business formal, there are still plenty of trendy outfits that you can rock this season.
In this article, we’ve put together a few outfit ideas for both men and women. From stylish floral dresses to pastel linen shirts, get ready to impress your colleagues with these spring office outfits!
Spring Work Outfits for Women
Dress like a boss while you navigate your career! These are the top spring work outfits perfect for the successful woman that you are.
Spring is the season for pretty pastels. Wear a bright blazer with a pair of neutral-colored Chinos for a classy but spring-like look. This marsala double-breasted blazer from NORDSTROM would look stunning with white pants. But if you’re looking for something more toned-down, opt for this petal pink textured blazer for a softer look. Match your blazer with a set of color-coordinating heels, or dress it down with white sneakers or flats.
White Slacks and Printed Blouse
A crisp pair of white slacks are a must-have staple every woman should have in her wardrobe. These straight-leg dress paints at Macy’s have a classic silhouette that instantly elevates any outfit. We think it looks great paired with a flowy patterned blouse. Try this burgundy floral number by Lucky Brand or this red and gold mock neck top by MSK. Layer with a solid-colored blazer or cardigan for a complete look.
The perfect mix of classy and sexy, a knee-length wrap dress is one of our favorite spring office outfits. Floral dresses (like this paisley Leota dress at Bloomingdale’s) can be fun and flirty. Or you can wear a solid color dress (like ba&sh’s camel midi) for a sleek and professional look. If the weather is still chilly, don’t forget a pair of black or nude-colored pantyhose to help you stay warm!
Midi Skirt and Cardigan
Instead of wearing a boring pencil skirt, swap it for a colorful knee-length option instead. This eye-catching floral midi from Bergdorf Goodman is playful but still professional enough to wear to a business meeting. Pair it with a cozy cardigan (this textured knit cardi by Free People goes with everything), and you have yourself a fabulous spring work outfit.
Spring Office Attire for Men
The good news for men is that you don’t have to dress like your father to succeed at your job. Dress to impress with these spring work outfits for men!
Pastel Dress Shirts
Although a colored shirt looks great all year, it’s particularly on-trend for spring. Purples, baby blues, and pinks are complementing colors that you can wear with a basic pair of black or grey slacks. However, pastel shirts also look great with khakis or light-colored Chinos. For example, this plaid dress shirt by Eton at Neiman Marcus is the perfect spring office outfit because it’s bright and professional at the same time.
Because linen is a breathable, lightweight material, it’s one of the best choices for spring. It’s also a versatile piece that you can wear on other occasions, like on a date or on vacation. White linen will always be a classic, although you can now find more colorful options too. This turquoise linen shirt from Cubavera is made with wrinkle-resistant fabric (perfect for those mornings you don’t want to iron). Short-sleeve linen shirts can also be a good choice, especially if you want a more casual business look.
Every man looks great in a neutral-colored suit. Tans and light browns match nicely with a white shirt and brown loafers. Or you can rock this white cotton suit with a blue or purple dress shirt underneath. While suits can be an expensive investment, it’s something you can still wear every year during the spring. You can also dress them down by wearing them with a pair of sneakers instead of dress shoes.
Colorful Sweater and Neutral Slacks
If you’re tired of wearing dress shirts and suits to the office, then consider a sweater and slacks combo instead. Look for a sweater with personality, like this blue merino wool pullover. It adds just the right amount of pop when worn with a basic pair of black slacks. You can always layer the sweater over a button-up dress shirt too to keep you warm during the earlier spring months.
Make a Great Impression
Dressing for spring is easier than you think! This article is full of spring work outfits that are professional yet fun at the same time. However, you might consider dressing up in more formal attire if you have an important meeting or job interview. If that’s the case, you might want to wear one of these business formal outfits instead.
