Building a work wardrobe that looks elevated on a budget is no easy task. I’m excited to show you exactly how you can mix high and low end pieces in order to elevate a classic work wear look. The secret is to invest in a few great pieces then you build your wardrobe from there. You can add designer accessories and minimal gold jewelry to really elevate the look. And as long as you stick to classic silhouettes, you’ll be golden!

The Trend I’m Loving Right Now
A trend that I’ve been loving this season is squared neckline tops, dresses and even jumpsuits. I love the way it gives the top structure, making it feel slightly more elevated. Which if you are in a professional setting is a must-have. The great thing about a top like this is just how versatile it is. You can pair with with white shorts and sandals for a casual Saturday afternoon look. Or you can pair it with wide leg pants and heels, like I did here for a work wear look. I’ve rounded up a few of my favorite square neck line pieces for you below!

Elevating Your Work Wardrobe With Accessories
A super easy way to elevate a classic work wear look is to add simple and timeless jewelry. I recently invested in a nice watch. This has been my favorite accessory to dress up any look. Then I will add a gold earring like these from Kendra Scott and a few stacked bracelets to complete the look. Another easy way to elevate your look is to add a designer handbag. This instantly gives you that put together feel.
SHOP WORK WEAR ACCESSORIES
When thinking about which pieces to invest in and which to save on, I always ask myself, will I love this in a few years? If the answer is no, I will find a less expensive option. For instance, this top is a little on the trendy side. So spending $24 aligns perfectly with my motto. However, a nice handbag, watch or even a great heel is something I’ll have and wear for years. Therefore I don’t mind investing the in quality of these pieces. By following this set of rules, it allows you to have a perfectly balanced work wardrobe that always looks elevated!
