I recently saw something on Pinterest that I loved—Shopbop designed a “workwear ultimate closet” with a few key items and then created 10 work-appropriate looks from those items. 
Because it’s Shopbop, the pieces weren’t cheap and the ones that were affordable have already sold out. I thought it would be fun to recreate their work wardrobe with a few alternate (but similar pieces) and then also show how they can be integrated into a weekend/casual wardrobe too. 
Here are the 14 pieces I chose (see above):
Mango Cotton Trench, $99.99
Topshop Structured Blazer, $130
Mango Sweater, $30
J.Crew New Boy Polka Dot Cotton Shirt, $88
Wallis Cardigan, $35
Gap Perfect Oxford Shirt, $49.95
Sanctuary Skinny Ponte Pants, $79
Wallis Stone Cigarette Trousers, $52
J.Crew Linen Scarf, $49.50
Mango TOUCH Leather Bag, $139.99 (from $229)
Lucky Brand Emmie Flats, $59
Aldo “Frited” Pumps, $80
Topshop Pencil Skirt, $60
Banana Republic Floral Wrap Dress, $98

Topshop Structured Blazer, Gap Perfect Oxford Shirt, Sanctuary Skinny Ponte Pants, Aldo “Frited” Pumps


Mango Sweater, Gap Perfect Oxford Shirt, Topshop Pencil Skirt, Mango TOUCH Leather Bag, Mango Cotton Trench, Lucky Brand Emmie Flats


Mango Cotton Trench, J.Crew New Boy Polka Dot Cotton Shirt, Sanctuary Skinny Ponte Pants, Aldo “Frited” Pumps


Mango Cotton Trench, J.Crew New Boy Polka Dot Cotton Shirt, Wallis Stone Cigarette Trousers, Lucky Brand Emmie Flats


Topshop Structured Blazer, J.Crew New Boy Polka Dot Cotton Shirt, Topshop Pencil Skirt, Aldo “Frited” Pumps

J.Crew Linen Scarf, Wallis Cardigan, Sanctuary Skinny Ponte Pants, Mango TOUCH Leather Bag

I think one of the best things about investing in really great work-appropriate clothing is that it can transition into your casual/weekend wardrobe too. 

Here are a few examples of how to bring in a few items you may already own in order to get more versatility out of your work wardrobe:


Just add: Madewell Rail Straight Jeans, $98.50 and Gap Printed Canvas Oxfords, $49.95


Just add: Madewell Rail Straight Jeans, $98.50


Just add: The North Face Jacket, $105-149

Just add: Baublebar Gold Pave Links Necklace, $38 and Gap Printed Canvas Oxfords, $49.95
