The office may not be the best place for your miniskirts and sheer tops, but that doesn't mean that there isn't any room to play with a touch of the trends. While we're not suggesting that you corporate girls completely ditch office protocol, we are feeling particularly inspired by this street-styled way to breathe a little life into our pencil skirts and crisp white button-downs. Should you opt to play around a little with the dress code, might we recommend taking a cue from this styler's creative layers. She transformed her office staples with a cool-girl sweatshirt, a little peplum, and a pair of bright heels, and the result was just as polished, albeit with loads more personality. If you're too timid to try it out on the job, then go the other route and slip into this sophisticated-meets-quirky twist on the trend for off-duty drinks or dinner with the girls. Wherever you choose to wear it, all you need is below, so get shopping to channel the same whimsical take on a few of our favorite essentials.
