Well, it isn’t entirely true and there are ways to obtain trendy work clothes without having to spill out your entire savings. And here are a few items that will definitely help make dressing for work this summer sweeter, without the bitter aftertaste of an empty wallet:

A pleated skirt is a must have this season and this one right here will flatter any body shape! With its stitched pleats that don’t pouf too much, summer-friendly shades and an elegant flutter that reaches well below the knees, who’s to argue its beauty and usefulness! Who? I dare you! Step out and state your case if you believe this skirt shouldn’t be on my list of trendy work clothes.

Dressing for work is a fun game you could make even more interesting by adding a bold color such as this one! Elegant front pleats, tapered legs and an overall classic appearance will help you pull it off even in a professional environment and the rest… well that’s entirely up to you!

7 Lacquered Bib Necklace

But trendy professional looks don’t have to revolve around clothes only and I’m sure you’re well aware of how much a carefully chosen accessory can do for one's appearance! My suggestion for today is a bold, chunky and uber trendy piece such as this to help you with that finishing touch some outfits lack.

8 ASOS Petal Platform Peeptoes

Which of these pieces would you use for your trendy professional looks? Do you pay a lot of attention to price tags when buying your office wardrobe? I’d say that, as long as you have a few good-quality versatile pieces, dressing for work in a way that allows you to enjoy a few trends doesn’t have to be a huge financial burden.
