Amazon professional workwear capsule: 15 outfits for under $250

It’s capsule time again!! As many of you know I spent close to 15 years working in a business professional environment. Basically I wore a suit for over a decade. As I started this blog I wanted to ensure I stay true to my roots and continue to bring great workwear options for the busy professional.

Now back in my recruiting days February was always CRAZY!! So what to do when the weather changed and I didn’t lose that holiday weight as fast as I had hoped… AMAZON! Today I have rounded up 6 core pieces from Amazon to build a workwear wardrobe that can go from Monday-Friday to cute weekend.

Now that I’ve been doing more Amazon workwear I have really fallen in love with their Lark & Ro brand. I feel like the sizing is consistent with retailers like LOFT and the price point is affordable making it a great option for professionals on a budget.


SHOP THE CAPSULE


SIZING

Let’s also talk sizing, I’m 5’5 and typically wear a size M/10 top, I’m a 36DD so I do have to worry about items being tighter across the chest or too low cut. In bottoms I’m closer to a true 12 these days and I prefer the petite for length and modern fit since my hips are smaller and thighs bigger.  The pants in this collection are a “curvy” fit which to be honest was not a great fit for me but might be good for you.

Here is how each item fit:

This Leopard Print blouse was honestly the inspiration of finding more Amazon workwear. I love the cut of these blouse and finding that Lark & Ro had some new prints and styles made me so happy. This blouse has covered buttons and a loose, flowy fit through the chest making it a great option for my figure. This blouse comes in a total of 9 colors so easy to find a few favorites.

This green blouse quickly became my favorite of the capsule because of the flowy feel and great color. It looks great with pants, skirt and jeans. The cardigan can also be thrown over with the black pants but I forgot to take a picture of that option, oops!

Outfit #1: Cardigan, Black Blouse, Black Pants, Heels or Flats

Outfit #2: Black Blouse, Skirt, Heels

Outfit #3: Black Blouse, Pants, Heels, (optional blazer)

Outfit #4: Blazer, Black Blouse, Skirt, Heels

This black ruched sleeve blouse has a one button keyhole opening that I realized was hard to see in these pictures. I like that it looks professional buttoned but then can be unbuttoned for a more casual look (see below). This has a more woven feel than the first two blouses.

Outfit #2: Dress, Heels

Outfit #4: Cardigan, Dress, Flats

This faux wrap dress is great because it is connected all the way to the other side so no wondering if it’s going to fly open. Also with the stretchy knit fabric it’s comfortable and the v-neck is not too low.
