If you don't love dresses but want to look more polished in your work wardrobe, it can be hard to find a happy medium. But there are plenty of ways to swap out your pants for skirts or dresses without having to change the rest of your outfit.
Dresses and skirts can be elegant and feminine, but they're not always practical. So if you're someone who doesn't like wearing dresses and skirts, but wants to look more polished in your work wardrobe, it can be hard to find a happy medium. But there are plenty of ways to swap out your pants for skirts or dresses without having to change the rest of your outfit.
Here are some examples of outfits that would look just as good with pants as they would with a dress or skirt:
A Pair of Satin Pants With Wide Legs
The best way to look like you're trying hard is to try not to try at all. A pair of satin pants with wide legs, a wrap-over skort with dusty blue pocket detail, and mom jeans in the blue riot are the ultimate dressy outfits for people who hate dresses.
The satin pants will give you the illusion of wearing a dress while remaining comfortable and giving your legs some breathing room. The skort is a great alternative to shorts or pants that can easily be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. Mom jeans have been deemed the unofficial uniform of moms everywhere, but they can also make an appearance in your wardrobe if you're feeling adventurous enough.
If you're not feeling these particular items but still want something dressy, just add heels and a blazer or cardigan for an effortless look!
Formal workwear is often associated with suits and ties, but there are other ways to dress up when you've got an important meeting or presentation coming up.
This outfit is perfect for a business meeting or presentation because it's professional without being too stiff or formal. The black skirt paired with a white blouse makes for a great foundation piece that can easily be dressed up or down depending on what occasion calls for it. Add some accessories like earrings, necklaces, and bracelets, and you're good to go!
Black Dress Pants & Tunic
My go-to outfit for a night out with the girls is black dress pants, a tan or brown tunic top, and heels. This outfit looks dressy enough to wear out to dinner or drinks with friends, but it’s not too dressy if you plan on staying at home afterward watching movies with your hubby.
Maxi Skirt & Blazer
Maxi skirts are super popular right now because they’re so flattering on any body type! Pairing a maxi skirt with a blazer is a great way to look professional without looking like you “tried too hard” when going out for drinks after work or dinner with the family after church on Sunday morning!
Mom Jeans in Blue Riot
If you're wearing jeans, opt for mom jeans instead of skinny or straight-leg jeans. Mom's jeans are higher-waisted and cut more like leggings with flared bottoms. They're more flattering and comfortable than regular jeans. These blue jeans are especially great because they come in multiple colors, which makes them easy to mix and match with other pieces in your wardrobe.
Wrap Over SkortWith Dusty Blue Pocket Detail
A wrap-over skort is a great option for summer because it offers the same ease as shorts, but no one will be able to see your bare legs. This one has a pocket detail that adds interest and texture to your outfit. It also comes in black and white stripes.
You can wear this piece with anything from casual sneakers to heels, so it's perfect for dressing up or down, depending on the occasion.
The best way to stay comfortable and look great is to always wear something that you love, that fits your body well, and that makes you feel amazing. Whether it's a dress or pants, or a cute top, wearing what makes you feel good always looks good.
