All my Aritzia must-have favourites for work
Thank goodness it's almost the weekend! Amongst all the craziness going on in life and still working full time in the office, I thought this would be the perfect time to share some of my must-have workwear pieces.
I’m all about the 9-5 simple chic - I lean towards pieces that are sophisticated, classic and appropriate for the cubicle lifestyle. I will admit that all of these pieces are a tad bit on the expensive side BUT I promise they'll all worth investing in... When looking for a good, expensive staple piece look for the most versatile items that can be worn in many different ways throughout the year. Dress it up or dress it down - look for timeless pieces that will go along way in your wardrobe. Now... for some of my favourites! These are not the exact items that I own - as styles change but for the most part, they're all very similar.
A blazer is a seriously wardrobe staple - these jackets are meant for more than just the daily grind! They can be worn for pretty much any occasion, from brunch to date night. As the spring and summer months arrive, I cant wait to pull out some of my favourite fun prints and bright colours - stay tuned!
No joke, I live in these during the week - they are by far the most comfortable work pants a girl could own. They are the perfect pant to dress up or to keep it casual. Hint, hint when I don't feel like totally dressing up; I just put on a bodysuit, toss on a cute cardigan and call it a day!
Now let's be honest here. We all have our favourite comfy cardigan that we would live in if we could... I don't know about you but I always have one at my desk just in case I get chilly. And, yes you're probably thinking... Aritzia cardigans are such an investment and a NIGHTMARE to wash blah, blah, blah and your right there - but I promise they are long-lasting, so cozy and perfect for the cubicle lifestyle.
Who doesn't love good solid coloured blouse - these two are some of my favourites to pair with solid coloured dress pants and/or dark jeans for casual Fridays. A simple, casual blouse goes a long way, ladies!
Anyone who has browsed my closets knows I'm OBSESSED with bodysuits and camisoles - they are the problem solver to ever last-minute outfit planning. These two pieces are so simple but yet so versatile. I highly recommend filling your closet with plenlty of colours and fun prints for summer time.
Who doesn't love shoes? I'll be the first to admit when I find a pair of shoes that are cute and comfy, I tend to ALWAYS over wear them... as to why I don't generally spend a lot of money on my shoes. (Only buy them when on sale) I have always loved Steve Madden and these two pairs below are some of my favourites - I do recommend sizing up half a size to a full size in them as they tend to fit quite small.
And there you have it - all my favourite Aritzia must-have workwear pieces. As promised, to be coming soon I 'll be sharing all of my Old Navy favs - including summer pieces for the office, one-of-a-kind finds and all my favourite, affordable sandals.
