1. Layer it Up

2. Bring a Blazer
Nothing says “professional” like a blazer. Try a solid blazer over a tank top or button up and your favorite patterned leggings.
3. Dress up a Tunic Top
The right print can make any tunic top or oversized blouse look office-ready.

4. Cozy Up in a Big Sweater
Comfort and style…what more can you ask for?
5. Add a Long Cardigan
Adding a little length is a great way to cover all your assets if you know what we mean 😉
6. Try a Vest
Fitted vests over a button-up top add to the streamlined look your leggings provide or try a long and loose vest for a more laid back style.
After all, leggings are sort of an upgraded version of tights, right? A solid colored skirt over printed leggings provides great contrast (and extra warmth in the winter!)

Tips for Choosing Office Friendly Prints:
- Go for repeated patterns rather than images
- Darker colors provide an understated look that’s subtle and classy
- Offset brighter prints with dark solid tops for a balanced look
- The right shoes can dress up just about any outfit! Low heels and dressy flats are great for an office environment, just stay comfortable!
- Be sure to stick to your office’s dress code!
