How to take your workwear into the weekend

If there’s one thing that all of us on Team LC have in common, it’s that we love a good dose of retail therapy. However, shopping for clothing to wear to the office can be a little less fun than picking up pieces for an evening out… But it doesn’t have to be! Learning how to rework items in your wardrobe to be both office- and weekend-friendly has never been easier, thanks to the new Paper Crown Spring collection. With subtle pops of color and an element of comfort, we’re sharing the easiest (and chicest) ways to wear your workwear right into the weekend…

The Wide Leg Trouser

If your office is not denim friendly, the wide leg trouser (like Paper Crown’s Scottsdale Pant) is a great alternative for a comfortable bottom. Tuck in your favorite sweater for an office-friendly ensemble. And when the weekend rolls around, you can repurpose the pant and tuck into a tank (like Paper Crown’s Desert Lily Tank) for a flowy party outfit, which is pictured below in poppy print.

A Lightweight Jacket

If you work in a casual setting, having a lightweight jacket like the Cottonwood Jacket in your wardrobe is a great alternative to a cardigan. Wear it with a dark wash pair of jeans and mules during the week, and with a crop top and shorts on Saturday afternoon.

A Versatile Sheath Dress

There is nothing more exciting than finding a dress that can be styled in several different ways. A sheath dress is one of the best silhouettes for this, due to its body skimming nature. You can easily switch up your style by layering a blazer, a long cardigan or a vest on over it. The Oleander Dress from Paper Crown achieves just that, and has a subtle amount of color, which is a must for spring. Style it with a blazer to work, and wear it alone or with a fun fringe vest like the Cortez Vest on the weekend.
