“Just get ready for work, work, work, work, work, work. You see me I be work, work, work, work, work, work” – but seriously Rihanna, we feel you with those lyrics. #isitreallyonlytuesday?
Working in a business professional environment, my sister and I are ALWAYS on the hunt for comfy business clothes. When you’re in and out of meetings all day, being in comfortable clothes can seriously change your entire attitude. Would you rather listen to Sarah drone on about Q3 numbers in stiff constricting business pants or soft yoga dress pants? You can certainly guess which pant denv.her. would choose; give me those comfy ones #rightmeow!
We were absolutely ecstatic when retail clothing company, Betabrand, reached out to us to partner!
Betabrand embodies the idea of a fashionable yet comfortable capsule wardrobe. You might find yourself asking, what is a capsule wardrobe? A capsule wardrobe is the practice of slimming down your wardrobe to staple pieces and mixing and matching these staples to create different outfits. Having a capsule wardrobe will drastically decrease the time it takes you to make a decision on what to wear.
Deciding what to wear to work can be daunting. You may find yourself asking questions like, “Is this office appropriate?” “Do these colors go together?” “Will I look too dressy?” “Will I not be dressy enough?” “Will Mark in Accounting think I look cute?” “Mark in Accounting BETTER think I look cute.”
These questions can be easily answered when you have narrowed down your clothing choices to several professional classics that can be worn interchangeably.
Enter Betabrand. This company sells amazing staple pieces that all business men and women should have in their wardrobe.
One of Betabrand’s MUST haves is their Dress Pant Yoga Pant. This is the most popular design that has hit the Betabrand website and it’s easy to see (and feel) why. These pants are SO comfy you guys. They are made of a stretchy rayon blend that feels like a yoga pant yet looks like a dress pant. Can I get a HALLELUJAH?! The un-comfy dress pant dilemma has been solved people! We’re no longer rushing home to get out of our rigid work pants; we can wear these babies from Betabrand comfortably ALL day.
Betabrand sells this particular pant in many different styles including boot cut, straight leg, skinny leg, crop length, and many more. You can pair these pants literally with any cute work top. These are a mandatory capsule wardrobe piece.
We paired Betabrand’s Dress Pant Yoga Pant with a Calvin Klein dress shirt, statement earrings from Bebe, a Michael Kors tote, and Franco Sarto pumps. Don’t forget your Chanel glasses to look super chic.
The second item we recommend from Betabrand is the Power Suit. This suit is a jacquard knit fabric top and skirt set that can be worn together or separately. This is another piece perfect for your capsule wardrobe. There are several different ways this outfit can be styled, mixed, and matched.
We paired Betabrand’s Power Suit with statement necklace from Bebe, Franco Sarto pumps, and the Chanel glasses.
Follow these simple steps from Betabrand to start your capsule wardrobe:
Our goal for our business attire capsule wardrobe is to have the following (all from Betabrand of course):
- 2 pairs of work pants
- 2 full suits (1 pencil skirt and jacket, 1 pants and jacket)
- 3 button shirts
- 3 cardigans
- 3 shirts to be worn under cardigans / jackets
- 3 business style dresses
SO many matching options!
Will you take the challenge of creating a capsule wardrobe? Betabrand has you covered!
Happy Work Week denv.her. babes!
