Millennial Office Wear Trends: Spring 2020
Not your boomer's office wear.
Is it time to refresh your workwear attire? Are you still wearing the same black pants and button-down blouse from five years ago? If you're a female-presenting millennial looking to update your office wardrobe with something other than the classic pant suit made famous by boomers, then we have some great Spring 2020 fashion trends for you.
1. Layer cute button up pieces with midi skirts
Layering is key during springtime when most regions of the United States can go to work in the morning with temperatures in the forties and leave work to temperatures the sixties. Plus, you can't beat this play on a classic neutral-tone look. Mix masculine components like a collared shirt and button-up sweater with feminine midi skirts and point-toe ankle boots.
