These 7 Reimagined Workwear Pieces Will Take You From the Office to a Night Out
This summer, as many people return to in-person work, social events are also coming back in full force. That means you may need to revamp your closet to include pieces that can easily take you from workday to work night on the town, no matter the occasion. After a year of living at home in loungewear, the idea of dashing from the office to a dinner with friends – let alone in an Instagram-ready outfit – may be intimidating.
Don't worry — Banana Republic has you covered. The brand's Art of Work collection combines high-quality, polished pieces with unexpected details for a fun and fashionable office-appropriate line. Check out some of the best workwear picks available now, along with some styling tips.
Banana Republic Threadsoft Wrap Midi Dress
A stretchy wrap dress, like this Banana Republic Threadsoft Wrap Midi Dress ($90), will be comfortable when you're sitting at your desk all day, without sacrificing professionalism. A flattering, simple black dress, this piece can be transformed for any occasion.
Banana Republic Lightweight Field Jacket
On chillier days, layering is your best friend. The Banana Republic Lightweight Field Jacket ($139) is actually pretty lightweight, so it also works during warmer months — especially when the AC is turned on high in the office. Wear the stand collar buttoned all the way up for a high-fashion look, or fold it over when you meet your friends for after-work drinks.
Banana Republic Pleated Mini Dress
Whoever said animal prints are not office-appropriate has obviously never seen the Banana Republic Pleated Mini Dress ($139) in navy zebra print. The long balloon sleeves and modern micro pleats give this dress a sophisticated edge.
Banana Republic Riley Tailored-Fit Shirt
Everyone needs a crisp button-down in their work wardrobe. The Banana Republic Riley Tailored-Fit Shirt ($70) is our pick for a clean, professional top. Tuck it into a pair of straight-leg jeans for the office, and when you're ready to go out, undo a few (or a lot) of the buttons.
Banana Republic Easy Seersucker Blazer
Blazers are no longer reserved just for workwear, and this Banana Republic Easy Seersucker Blazer ($159) is practically begging to be thrown over a minidress for your next night out. Come Monday morning, you can grab it again to wear to the office.
Banana Republic Sandwash Cropped Wide-Leg Jumpsuit
The jumpsuit is the MVP of office apparel, especially the Banana Republic Sandwash Cropped Wide-Leg Jumpsuit ($96-$120). This super-soft piece feels like pajamas, with all of the polish of a draped midi dress.
Banana Republic High-Rise Wide-Leg Lenzig Ecovero Pants
These Banana Republic High-Rise Wide-Leg Lenzig Ecovero Pants ($99) are a summer-workwear necessity. White trousers with a sweater tank and heels make the perfect 'fit to take you from the office to a dinner party.
