Here, 4 styles you should swap out for your workwear wardrobe to elicit the respect you deserve.

We love a breezy sundress just as much as the next girl, but anything too strappy, low-cut or backless is better left for Sunday brunch with the girls. Instead reach for a printed jumpsuit for the same playful vibe.
Flowing Studio Dress
Printed Georgette Jumpsuit
MICHAEL Michael Kors
Leave your sky high heels for late night dancing and opt for lower closed-toe block ones for the office.
Coline Cage Sandal
Azara Ankle Tie Point Shoe
Just because your office allows jeans in the dress code does not mean that all options will fly. If you've been afraid of the flared denim trend, now is a good time to invest in a polished, work appropriate pair.
Point Sur Shoreditch Selvedge Jean
Mid-Rise Flared Jeans
