Let’s face it, the traditional work week is a thing of the past. You’re either hustling to keep up with multiple gigs, working way past five, or taking meetings all over town. Whatever your situation, one thing is absolutely certain: it’s time to embrace a non-traditional workweek wardrobe. This spring, we’re challenging you to make Monday to Friday the most exciting days of the week for your closet. That could mean wearing a tank and making it office-appropriate with an eye-catching coat (think Maritime Trench!) or pairing a printed pump with everything from red dresses to navy trousers. Check out these five boss looks guaranteed to make you rethink your work outfits.
