7 Stylish Jackets That Will Take Your Work Wear from Drab to Fab ...

By Chelsie

If you generally reach for a basic navy blazer when you are getting ready for work, I have found some stylish jackets that will spice up your work wardrobe. Jackets can add interest and a professional vibe to your work wear. Even if you work at a casual or creative office, a jacket can be a great way to take your work look up a notch. There are so many stylish jackets that you can choose from, finding one to fit your office dress code should be no problem.

1 Ruffle Collar Jacket

Ruffle Collar JacketThis jacket by Ann Taylor is one of my favorite stylish jackets. It is both conservative and stylish. The ruffle collar adds something special to the jacket; however, should you need the jacket for a more casual event you, you can remove the collar. I love this aspect of the jacket. It definitely will allow you to wear it for multiple purposes. Although, the collar is my favorite part of this fashionable jacket, and I would rarely remove it!

2 Moto Tweed Jacket

Moto Tweed JacketIf you work in a creative office, this is the jacket for you! Ann Taylor’s Moto Tweed Jacket is edgy while also remaining work appropriate. The faux leather trim is a trendy detail, and the asymmetrical zipper is extremely stylish. Pairing this jacket with a bold, yet classy necklace gives this jacket just the right tone for work. I can picture any woman looking fabulous in this jacket on her way to the office.

3 Velvet Peplum Jacket

Velvet Peplum JacketHere is yet another fashionable jacket from Ann Taylor. The Velvet Peplum Jacket is certainly the fanciest jacket on this list. However, it is a great jacket for client meetings, especially if paired with a basic pencil skirt and bright cotton blouse. I would even wear this jacket with jeans for a more relaxed vibe, but I am not sure how work appropriate that would be. You might want to save that idea for a date. Though, for work this jacket certainly makes a professional and stylish statement.

4 Ponte Peplum Jacket

Ponte Peplum JacketWhite House Black Market’s Ponte Peplum Jacket is a wonderful white jacket for spring. The box pleats around the peplum of the jacket give this jacket a special detail that will make you feel classy. I also love the hook-and-eye closures that take the place of buttons. A great idea provided by the store’s stylists is to wear the jacket with a wide, shiny black belt. The belt highlights the peplum and makes the jacket look even more fashionable than it already is. Wearing this jacket to work, you will feel like the most stylish woman in the office!

6 Heritage Tipped Blue Blazer

Heritage Tipped Blue BlazerThe Heritage Tipped Blue Blazer from Banana Republic is a stylish and classic jacket that is great for work. The white piping gives the jacket visual interest and really pops against the black jacket. This jacket would be perfect in almost any work setting, and like so many of the jackets, it can easily be made casual for weekend outings. This is one jacket that you will reach for time and time again.

7 Leopard Jacquard Blazer

Leopard Jacquard BlazerThis is definitely not a jacket for a law office. However, if you work in a creative environment with a looser dress code, Banana Republic’s Leopard Jacquard Blazer would certainly put a little zing in your work wardrobe. I would wear this jacket with basic black pants and a white cotton blouse. This simple styling will let the jacket speak for itself, or should I say purr? This is a fabulous jacket, and, although it is not appropriate in all work environments, I had to include it in this list.

Everyday work wear can get boring. These jackets will keep your work wardrobe interesting and stylish. I know if I had any of these jackets in my closet I wouldn’t be able to wait to get ready for work in the morning! Which of these jackets would you wear to work?
