With school back in session, I’m getting back into my groove and there’s been a huge request to share more workwear. You may have seen this recent blog post with teacher outfit ideas. Today I’m partnering with Express to share some neutral workwear pieces that can be building block pieces for a workwear capsule wardrobe!
I love the soft knit line of workwear pieces from Express because the material has good stretch and doesn’t wrinkle. If I see the word “poplin” on a clothing item I run the other way because it translates to “stays pressed for 2 seconds”. No matter what you wear to work, if it’s wrinkled, it makes the outfit look sloppy in my opinion.
The joggers feel like sweatpants but they look so chic. There are multiple color options but do note the length. These are only offered in one length and it fits me well and I am 5’11”. The blazer that pairs with it is such a flattering cut it looks tailored! I’m wearing xs in both pieces.
If you have loved Express for workwear for awhile like I have, you know their Portofino shirts. A classic staple, this one is lightweight and drapes well and it’s available in a bunch of colors. I’m wearing xs. If you are busty, go up if you are between sizes.
Speaking of how versatile the Portofino shirts are they dress down just as well as they dress up. Here I paired the shirt with flare jeans. These have a lot of stretch and hug you in in the waist. I’m wearing my usual size, 2 long with one of my favorite belts – also from Express. My belt is on the last hole in size XS.
If you are looking for classic staples, I recommend searching the Portofino shirts and the Columnist pants from Express. They’re very timeless styles you can hang onto for years and a lot of their workwear pants come in petite and tall sizes. Here a few more neutral work-friendly fall outfit ideas to remix the pants and blazer:
