It feels like my life has been work, work, work all the time recently! Whether it’s my new job or wedding planning or whatever I’ve been busy yet fulfilled. As I’ve transitioned from a very casual office environment to a more fashion-forward setting, I’ve been having a great time evaluating my work pieces! I’m dipping back into work clothing shopping with an eye towards my day-to-day office life as well as pieces that are good for client meetings.
At the moment I split my time between my old and new jobs — as a senior exec at both, it was very important to me to smoothly transition between each role. So, some days jeans and a tee are fine and other days I want something a little dressier. This post is all about work outfits for Spring 2019 (and beyond!).
I thought it would be fun to take a look at some of the work outfit ideas I’ve put together recently, starting with a Spring transitional outfit I’ve been wearing often.
The look above is one of my favorite work outfits for Spring 2019. This work outfit has been on repeat because it works well in both of my current office environments. Also, this time of year the weather in NYC is unpredictable. It can be cold in the morning, downright hot by midday and then chilly again in the evening. Layering is helpful!
Below, I’ve put together 11 more work outfit ideas. Then, at the end of the post you’ll find my work outfit wishlist for Spring 2019. I’ve tried to make a good mix between more conservative office looks and more casual work outfits, layers or fewer layers, and address the different styles I love. Of course, everything below stays in my preppy chic aesthetic. It’s how I style effortlessly! What are you wearing to work right now?
Now that you’ve seen some of my ideas for work outfits for Spring 2019, it’s time to shop the pieces! Below, all the pieces used in the outfits above and more. I’ll have more work outfit ideas very soon!
I LOVE outfit 8! It has the perfect pop of yellow! Thanks for sharing!

Thank you! I was inspired by the daffodils that have been blooming here.
Hi everyone! I'm having an issue with a ton of spam comments attempting to flood the blog at the moment, so I've temporarily required ALL comments to be moderated. Hoping this will only last a couple of weeks or so. Thanks for your patience!
This is such a great inspo post and love the shoes.
These are some great outfits!! I love that pretty green printed dress!
That dress was such a fun find! I love the price point too.
Love your featured outfit Roxy! Those shoes are so pretty. I've wanted to try the snakeskin trend and shoes are the perfect way in my mind. I like all the other outfits you've created. I hope you'll do more of these posts! My favorites in this post are #2, #3 and #5.
More of these coming up. 🙂
You have so many beautiful outfits selections for spring to wear to work and love all of the accessories! ❤️
Thank you! I'm so glad you enjoyed the post.
Great mix of styles and outfit ideas! I think I like the outfit you are wearing the best. Number 11 is also so cute.
Nice Outfits! Thanks for sharing! I have an off topic question about returning in store purchase from Anthro. I have an unworn dress which I accidentally took the tag off. Will I be able to return it back to the store if I have the original receipt? Thank you to anyone could help!
Probably! I know that Free People (Anthro's sister store) generally doesn't allow returns if the tag has been removed, but I've never had that problem at Anthropologie. Anyone else have thoughts?
I am loving all the dresses and the loafer options. Totally my beat.
Yes to loafers! I am finally getting into them.
Outfit four is definitely my favorite! I’ll admit most days I stay in my pajamas since I work from home. However, it sure is fun to see all the ideas!
So so true! Then again working in PJs is really fun too.
Oh wow! I love all of these different outfits! I don't know which is my favorite, such a wide variety!
Yay! I love when it's hard to pick a favorite.
great outfit ideas! I especially love the elegant outfits featuring the animal print – so chic!
Thank you Katya!!
These are all great options for the office! I don't work in an office and miss having sassy suits and separates to wear to work!
I mean, even when I was a work from home-r I would still get dressed up sometimes for work because it feels GOOOOOD.
Loving all of these outfit inspiration and your outfit is so chic! Need those snakeskin heels!
Loving the white and pink blazer options. They are so in trend now although I don't know that I want to splurge for a high end one. Will track to Nordstroms to try these! Love all of the outfits!
Sweet Shari! I'm sure there are different brands that will have them — I know Express has some cute blazers, and at Nordstrom Halogen does too.
Oh wow, so many great ideas! I work from home, but would totally wear a ton of these. I love the slip dress with the blazer!
I hear you! Sometimes the urge strikes to get dressed up and go out anyway!
I love these ideas!! I don't have a ton of places to wear outfits like this (I work at home – so pjs) but I wish I ddi!
You never know when the need may strike!
These are all such great outfit ideas! I work in political advocacy so some of these looks would be perfect!
Wow what a cool job!!
LOVING those heels!! So fun and adds some sass to the outfit!
Girl, these are all such fun work outfits!!
All such great work outfits babe! I don't even know where to start because I want everything lol
Love these outfits you put together! The mint and navy combo is my favorite.
I love outfit 5!! Casual yet polished and those bamboo earrings are too cute!
Hey Roxy, are you going to do any reviews of the Anthropologie quarterly reports anymore? I always enjoy your insights.
Have you taken a look at the Anthro May new arrivals?
Anything Gal Meets Glam is available at Nordstrom and they usually come big FYI. I noticed Anthro is carrying that brand now. Anything marked as white seems to be more ivory or cream; i'm not sure what's so hard about marking a dress CREAM. And Roxy….please continue to report on Anthropologie. I can't seem to shake them off! WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME?
Possibly on the quarterly reports, I'm just back from a trip to Spain but will make an Anthro new arrivals post my first post back. 🙂
I noticed Nordstrom is selling a lot of brands that Anthropologie now carries. I wish they carried Maeve dresses (is this only an Anthro brand). Also, for anyone else who is a Maeve fan…..did my body change or do her dresses now fit smaller than they used to (I weigh the same…I have no idea what's going on)???
Maeve has gone through a lot of back and forth. It used to be very tight on me back in 2005-2009. Then it became a better fit on me and another in-house Anthro brand, Moulinette Soeurs, took over as being very tight on me. It does look like Maeve has returned to being cut for smaller chests and fewer curves which is very disappointing. But things change from season to season so hopefully Anthro will reconsider!!
Roxy, I'm thinking of taking the plunge and buying the Madewell washed leather moto jacket later this year – do you know when/if there will be a promo that will discount it? Black Friday?
Black Friday is a possibility. There's also usually one promo in August or September with no exclusions.
Every time I read a post like this, it *nearly* makes me want to work in a corporate environment again. Then I realize since I work from home, I can wear whatever the heck I want – including these pieces, if I so desire haha. They're all so cute!
