There’s no shame in viewing the New Year as the sartorial equivalent of a clean slate. In fact, we wholeheartedly encourage taking the first Monday of the year as an opportunity to shake up your workwear wardrobe. Rather than reach for the humdrum skirt-and-shirt combo, try amping things up a notch by way of a subtly curve-hugging, color-blocked shift dress, matching tights and white (that’s right, white!) pumps. The look is fresh, office-appropriate and totally unexpected. Top it all off with a fun faux-fur coat and get ready to climb that corporate ladder in style.
