Feeling bored by your office wardrobe these days? Here’s a simple but unbelievably chic look you can put together using pieces from your closet or a few key buys from high street retailers. Worn by the ultra-stylish Kate Davidson Hudson of e-commerce site The Editorialist, this outfit combines bright white with pops of black and white for a stunning effect that’s still totally 9-to-5 appropriate.

The cool-factor of this outfit is partially achieved by the slightly oversized white shirt - a key buy for your spring wardrobe that you'll wear again and again. Look for a style in linen for that not-too-stiff, effortlessly chic look.
Spring whites in the workplace (or anywhere, for that matter) call for the right undergarments. Jockey's Skimmies Slipshorts give you the smooth look and modesty-factor of shapewear without feeling nearly as heavy or constricting. Genius, we know.
Fit is super-important with a pencil skirt; especially when you're dealing with white fabric. Look for one that fits at the waist but isn't skin-tight elsewhere. If off-the-rack options don't do your curves justice, size up and take it straight to a tailor.
A super-long gold necklace adds a glam, '70s feel to your look without coming on too strong. Tuck this simple chain inside your shirt for an even simpler effect or add a gold bangle if your office is more casual and encourages fashion-forward looks.
The casual, raffia-like material of these super-sexy lace-up sandals brings them right into daytime and adds a bit of style and substance to this minimalist outfit. Pair with a fresh pedicure in nude, violet or bordeaux for a gorgeous look.
Dark lipstick could take this office outfit to an innappropriate place; keep makeup elegant and minimal instead. Think: expensive-looking nude lipstick (Tom Ford is our fave), flawless skin and light smoky shadow in a neutral color.
Animal Print Clutch
To make a fabulous clutch work for daytime, opt for an oversized, structured shape. If this fun little add-on feels too fancy or isn't practical for your office, swap it with a tote in an equally eye-catching black and white print.
