Step into my office. It’s time to chat spring workwear!
There are countless amazing things about springtime: finally feeling the warmth of the sun on your skin, beautiful flowers blooming everywhere and my favorite of all, no need for bulky layers anymore. The shift in seasons means it’s time to re-think what you wear day to day (enter flowy dresses and all the skirts!) but I’ve found it can be tough to easily transition workwear into spring. The weather’s in that funky phase of cold in the morning and hot in the afternoon so finding pieces that work all day long can be a struggle.
By now you’ve probably built a nice, trusty neutral work wardrobe of basics, but today I’m sharing easy pieces to add now to infuse a little spring into your office look that you might already have in your closet.
what I’m wearing
You can easily make any office look feel a little more spring by switching out your dark pair of shoes with white ones. This simple trick adds a crisp, fresh vibe without trying too hard at all. The pumps I’m wearing were a pleasant surprise because they’re under $30 and so incredibly comfortable.
Blazers are a work wardrobe staple and most of us own a favorite in black or navy but switch it up this spring by adding a few pastel blazers to your closet. You’ll still look and feel professional but you’ll be adding color without being too loud or gaudy for an office environment.

During fall and winter months I tend to wear a little more makeup and a lot of deep lip colors. Once the weather gets warmer my makeup gets lighter and I pull out softer lip shades and wear very minimal eye makeup. This keeps things fresh and vibrant and it’s such an easy way to help your overall workwear feel like spring. Not only will it save you time in the mornings, but you’ll have so much fun finding new pink or coral lip colors to pair with your office outfits.
Switch black plants for brown
Everything gets lighter in the spring and pants should be no exception. I love a good basic pair of black pants because they go with everything but the right pair of brown pants can work in the same way. The ones I’m wearing are incredibly comfortable, under $60 and perfect for work.
How are you guys preparing for warmer weather? Do you have any tips when transitioning workwear into spring? I’d love to know!
