For most of us, the most important daily executive decision is choosing what to wear to work. On a good day, this morning brainstorming session feels creative and free, but other times it may feel like a meeting that never ends. If your work wardrobe needs a reboot, here are some simple style tips to refresh your closet.

Professional in Pastels 

The intel on this season’s pastel palette spans from pale pink to periwinkle blue and everything in between. Dresses are a versatile wardrobe staple for every working woman, and the best part about purchasing petite dresses for work in pastel hues is you can wear them outside of work too. Whether you’re headed to church, brunch, or a spring wedding, pastel dresses speak the language of spring and summer.

Blooms That Mean Business 

The timeless spring trend has arrived with a twist for the workplace. These not-too-loud florals got the memo to brighten any room you enter. Much like pretty pastels, nothing screams spring like floral frocks. While searching for petite dresses special occasion, consider them for the workplace as well. You can easily double your spring and summer wardrobe by incorporating some of your professional favorites into your weekend wardrobe. Best of all, whenever you do find yourself in need of a special occasion dress, say for a baby shower, holiday, or church, you will have plenty of beautiful blooming floral print dresses to choose from.

Color Me Casual Fridays 

Fridays usually mean a sigh of relief with the promise of a weekend to unwind and relax. Depending on your office dress code, jeans may be okay, but what happens when someone misses the message that it’s Friday and puts a meeting on your calendar? No fear! You can still look classy and professional without needing to break out the pantsuit. In this case, give your jeans the day off and consider petite work dresses with some fun Friday flare, like a black and white jumpsuit or wrap it up for the weekend in a bright-colored wrap dress.

Mute Your Morning Meetings with Neutrals 

Neutral colors are a natural choice for the office, as they can be mixed and matched to create multiple outfits, so stock up on your favorite dresses in tan, beige, black, and grey. You can always add a pop of color with accessories like a colorful tote, scarf, shawl, or stunning shoes. Neutrals don’t have to mean “blah,” either. Mix things up by adding neutral pieces with a print or pattern, like a black dress with a floral design or a black jumpsuit with white polka dots.

Working for the Weekend 

When the weekend approaches, it’s time to hit the beach or pool, should the weather permit. Include a few off-the-clock essentials for vacation days, like a tropical maxi or halter dress. A strapless jumpsuit is also an excellent choice as you can often dress up these pieces to make them work-appropriate by adding a sweater, cardigan, or blazer. Don’t forget to put on some espadrilles and grab your favorite straw bag and sunglasses.
