While you may think trendy threads like sheer and cut outs have to be reserved for the weekend, it's actually very possible to rock them at your 9 to 5. Of course the bodycon cut out dress might have HR giving you a stern warning, but these workplace appropriate garments are light, a little less form-fitting and fun. They’re the perfect mash up of being on trend without sacrificing professionalism. Maybe you want a breezy maxi dress with a diaphanous overlay or a cutout mini skirt you can dress down. No matter your fashion piece of choice, we've got more than a handful of options that will help you upgrade your office wardrobe for spring.
