Are we taking off our winter coat already? Well, maybe not just yet. We are rather swapping boots for pumps instead. Not any pumps though. The plexi pumps. Yes, we are wearing transparent shoes for work too. And here is how. Plus the best #5 transitional work outfits you should wear now. On duty! And after. From the office to the street.
CHIC CASUAL WORK OUTFIT IN BETWEEN SEASONS
Want to show off in your new jacket at work, but it’s too cold? I know, I feel you. With 10℃ in the mornings, it seems like we simply can’t say goodbye to our wool coat this spring. On the other hand, why should we, as it goes so well with everything. Only when it doesn’t. Yes, I mean your dull grey coat. Anyway, grey or pastel as mine, coat or puffer, you can still wear them all and yet have your business casual work outfit spring ready. How? With these stunning plexi shoes, all the gals are adding to their shopping wish list now.
Again, how to update your work outfit without taking off your coat? By ditching off your beloved sock boots and putting on these killer heels. Yes, these are killer heels. Wait, I’m not saying you will fall in them and break your bones or even worse. No, no, far from that. But this might happen to your colleges of envy when seeing you walking around the office in these stunning pumps. Yes, these pumps are actually one of the top 5 most wanted shoes of soring 2018. Surely, you knew that already, right?
Well if not, there is nothing to worry about. A special blog post about all shoes that are in fashion for spring summer 2018 is coming up on Brunette from Wall Street next Tuesday. So be sure to add a note to your calendar or even better follow me on my Facebook to be in the know when this blog post is live. Meanwhile be sure to also check my SS 18 Fashion Reporthere and obviously the Shopping list(here) with all the IT things every fashion girl is shopping now.
WHAT TO WEAR FOR WORK NOW
Back to this spring chic business casual outfit. Who would thought spring work outfits can be so chic, right? These plexi pumps really do make a difference. Especially when compared to those boring work outfits your colleagues are wearing now.
Obviously, you can’t wear this spring chic business casual outfit if you work in finance (blockchain office excluded) or law office, as the emphasis is on the chic casual. But you can wear it for any other work. And no not because of the plexi shoes.
Those shoes are made for any office really. It’s merely because of the jeans. In spite of the dark denim, jeans are still not appropriate for the business world. You know what I mean, the old fashion, a business world where a business code is a staple and jeans still don’t count as business casual.
NOT ALLOWED TO WEAR CHIC CASUAL OUTFITS FOR WORK?
So what to wear if you work in a law firm or Wall Street, then? The same outfit, but be sure to swap the jeans with the wide leg pants. Your work outfit will still be spring chic business outfit. Just not casual. Which is exactly what you should be wearing. Oh, and you might better wear a crisp white shirt or the new type of tailored shirt.
Or even better a suit. Not the classic one of course. But the new kind of suit. Not saying anything more, there is the EDIT with 5 spring work outfits waiting for you at the end of this blog post. Yes, I made that EDIT with 5 different outfits that you love so much. Afterall it’s a day to share the 5 outfits EDIT.
But before we head on, checking those transitional work outfits I picked up for you, a little stop at this chic business casual outfit I’m wearing this time.
SHOP AND WEAR MY STYLE
Don’t forget to save, print or simply pin this fashion cheat sheet – the EDIT, and keep it close to your work clothes. You know as a little reminder of how to style that staple striped shirt you love so much. Or not. But wearing it every day anyway. Oh and don’t be b* (be the best friend instead) and share this cheat sheet with your collogue. You know that one, who comes to work wearing the hiking boots and a pencil skirt with a slit that reveals way too much.
So where and how to shop this spring chic business casual outfit that I’m wearing? Simply touch/click on the pink boxes that will show up as you scroll down the EDIT.

MY TRANSITIONAL BASICS
What exactly am I wearing this time? Not that I actually need to mention. Afterall you keep seeing me in these clothes. These are my working basics. The clothes I wear whenever I can. Read when I’m not obliged to wear the business formal outfit.
THE COAT YOU OUGHT TO HAVE
You saw me wearing this Weekend Maxmara just the other day in this post here. With the ripped jeans and dangling belt, remember? No? Believe me, it’s a must see and read. Especially if you have no idea what to wear when off-duty.
Back to this elegant wool coat. Shop it here. It’s on sale now. Have I mentioned now is the best time to buy a coat, already? Well, I’m mentioning again. Shop it now, wear it now (for a week or two) and wear it later. It’s a classic coat that never goes out of fashion. And given it’s from Max Mara you can wear it the next 20 years.
I’m wearing a basic blue striped shirt under my elegant double-breasted coat. To be honest, I have no idea what brand is this striped shirt as I have so many and I just grabbed the first one I found. Well, you must agree, one can’t have too many basic shirts. By the way, how many stipped shirts do you have?
Ps. If you are missing this work staple, you must check the gallery below. These crisp white and striped button-down shirts are basic, sure, but at the same time so fashionable for spring. Plus, I picked them from Shopbop sale. In case you haven’t heard yet, Shopbop is running 20 % off under $500 and 25 % off $500+ sale now (until 14th April 2018, so better hurry up).
Same as here (in the blog post about what to wear for work every day, only when it’s slightly colder then now and pumps are out of the option), I’m wearing the A.P.C. tapered jeans(shop here). Remember, dark denim jeans are the only jeans you can actually wear for work. Well unless you are a fashion blogger or fashion influencer and your job is to show up wearing the latest fashion trends. And even then, this season, you will be wearing dark denim. Yes, dark denim is not only work appropriate but in fashion for spring 2018 too. Win-win, I say.
Let me guess, you didn’t think you could wear transparent shoes for work before checking this blog post, did you? As you can see, you can. Of course, not any kind of transparent shoes. But these ones for sure. These Gianvito Rossi plexi pumps(shop here) go well with everything. And I’m pretty sure you already figured this out. That is if you follow me on Instagram and Facebook. I have been wearing them with everything. They are actually my everyday pumps this spring. Ps. Keep reading to see how to style them with a suit in the EDIT below.
Almost forgot to mention the bag. Just another basic black bag every girl should have. Slightly too little, to be honest, as I couldn’t put my mac (ha I mean my laptop, not the burger) in it. Luckily I carry my office on my phone, and I still managed to stack all the essentials in. By the way, do you know what #6 things a lady boss should always carry in her bag? If not, be sure to read this post here. Click and read it after you check my #5 transitional work outfits.
