Hoping to fill in your work closet this Spring? Look no further than LOFT! LOFT just unveiled a special collection of casual office, work-friendly pieces! There’s a terrific depth of options here from classic blazers with modern touches to beautiful lace shells, cute trendy shoes or classic wedges, and beautiful printed skirts. This is my favorite LOFT collection to date!

I’m swooning over their attention to detail here, from subtle feminine touches to beautiful floral prints and — a personal fave — lace deployed perfectly. Below, a few examples of what I’m talking about.

When it comes to lace for work, too much skin showing can be a challenge. That’s why the Floral Lace Flutter Top ($60) delights me so much — it has professional appeal yet can also shine as casual or datewear! The sleeves are a feminine touch without going overboard — no extreme bells or volume in sight. It’s restrained design, but not at all a restrained result.

You’ll find the same professional charm and subtly enchanting feminine details in the hemline of this sweater and the ever-so-slightly poufed sleeves of this blouse to name just a couple more in a collection full of these simple glamours.

I love menswear with a feminine twist! In the last few years retailers have been skewing far too deeply into the ‘menswear’ part and not enough into the ‘feminine’ part. LOFT seems to have turned the corner! Simple details like the double ruffles on this skirt above make me smile when I’m getting ready for work! You could easily pair this skirt with a cami shell and this modern-with-a-twist blazer mentioned at the top of the post. Here’s another shell option if that first one potentially doesn’t cover quite enough shoulder.

When LOFT does too trendier shapes like bell sleeves it does them in a way that isn’t extreme, which I very much appreciate! This cardigan (above) is perfect for when the office A/C is on full blast. I also bought the shell shown with it, which is super flattering on and pairs nicely with jeans or a skirt.

If this cardigan is too trendy for you, you’ll also find classics in this workwear collection like this open ribbed cardigan, a fun waist-defining option and a cute wrap cardigan too.

In March floral prints are extra appealing to me because I want to combat this final awfully brown month of Winter with some vivids and brights. LOFT’s florals tend to be both with pattern placement that usually nails it. I was surprised by how much I love the Mixed Media Shell ($45, above) on! It runs large so do size down but once on it has a very flattering minimal a-line shape that compliments body-skimming jeans, pants or pencil skirts perfectly. I’m also a fan of this floral set on black and this Asian-inspired print that isn’t too literal.

 

LOFT has a few promotions running right now, but the best is coming up this week — full price items should go 40% off in the next day or two! Load up your cart now because I predict many of these items will quickly sell through shortly after the promo launches.

From separates to one-piece looks (like this lovely dress) you’ll find the clothing and accessories you need to look amazing at the office. I’m totally smitten by this collection. Shop the entire boutique of my picks from LOFT’s work collection below.

    Wow, these are really pretty items. Thanks for sharing them. I forget to look at Loft's new arrivals and often miss out.
    Thanks!

      You're welcome maryeb! I agree with you, these are some of the prettiest prints I've ever seen at LOFT, and I went to the store yesterday and found the quality to be really good for the price on most everything I saw. (I culled items out of this post that didn't make the quality grade.)

      I forgot to mention it in the post but I have several friends who used to work in clothing design at Anthropologie (and one friend who was at J.Crew) who now work at LOFT, and they say it's a wonderful company to work for that's truly trying to make its way into budget-friendly, beautiful work and casual outfit items. I'm rooting for them!

    Some great pieces there – thanks for sharing!

    I love their skirts, but why are soooo many of them only 18" long? I'm only 5'4" and they are too short for me! I've passed over so many cute skirts because of this. 🙁

      I don’t know but it’s an issue everywhere! I would faint if I saw a 20” skirt.

      It’s better than J.Crew, Madewell and FP with their 15” skirts at least.

      Glad I’m not the only one thinking the skirts were too short for work haha

        LOL. A few of the skirts I linked to are longer — at the knee or just above!

          Good. I only clicked links for tops. My second thought was “come on man!” My first thought, and I almost posted, was “What happened to us???” I used to at least get away with skirts this length. Now I’m completely uncomfortable if a skirt is not firmly at my knees or below. And strangely, I feel sexier in the longer length.

            Rolling on the floor @ "What happened to us???" I agree about longer skirts being sexier! Alex and I just watched "Wonder Woman" over the weekend and I think that the long skirt + wool trench + belt combination Diana was wearing in London was very sexy, not to mention impeccably stylish.

            I have to tell you, I don't know if it's a NYC thing or a fashion industry thing or what but so many of my coworkers and clients are wearing mini skirts and they range in ages from fresh out of college up into their 60s. So what we're seeing in retail may be following that and I love it, though in the end I prefer the more Parisian long layered style.

            Yeah, I used to live in minis. Now the highest I will go is slightly above the knee and like you I feel more confident and attractive.
