Nasty women and fashion-forward femmes everywhere know that the right outfit can give you the boost you need to take on the workday like a boss. And even if your nine-to-five wardrobe is well-stocked with an endless supply of classic pantsuits, trend-right button downs, and embellished slippers, constant inspo is essential to keep your down-to-business duds feeling fresh. Consider your sartorial prayers answered 鈥 we鈥檝e scoured Instagram to find 16 rad looks that鈥檒l keep your on-the-job style routine on lock 鈥 so you can focus your attention on climbing the corporate ladder.

1. Souped-Up Suit: Nothing says boss lady quite like a power suit. But instead of teaming it with a snoozy button-down or bow-neck blouse, take cues from style blogger Megan Ellaby and layer a belted suit coat over a zip-up sweater for a fierce athleisure-inspired ensemble that鈥檚 guaranteed to impress.

2. Mix-and-Match: According to Veras CEO Rebecca Vera Stahnke, pattern play shouldn鈥檛 be reserved solely for off-duty hours. Jazz up your on-the-job uniform by swapping out everyday basics with bright blouses and textured trousers to kick-start those creative vibes. Bonus points for metallic steppers and statement jewelry that lend an artistic quality to your work edition #OOTD.

3. Polished Pajamas: PJs can indeed look polished 鈥 just ask stylist Emili Sindlev. To keep the look feeling boardroom rather than bedroom, start with luxe fabrics and sharp silhouettes. Layering is key 鈥 slip a turtleneck underneath the top or slide a blazer on over the shoulders to bring the sophistication level up to par. Finish with a neat topknot and abstract earrings FTW.

4. Statement Sleeves: Follow Tine Andrea鈥檚 lead and give after-dark essentials such as a slinky slip a by-day makeover with statement sweaters (see those sleeves? Swoon). The combination of fancy and fuss-free duds strikes the perfect balance of street-style edge and working-girl elegance that鈥檒l land your nine-to-five outfit miles ahead of your suit-sporting coworkers.

5. Jazzy Joggers: Even on days when you just can鈥檛 even, you still have to live up to fashion-forward expectations 鈥 which means sweats and sneakers are out. Introducing the laid-back ensemble that鈥檚 about to become your workweek savior. Tailored track pants and an oversized sweater take on a supremely fashionable tone when teamed alongside classic pumps, a turtleneck, and flashy drop earrings.

6. Bold Belts: Corsets at the office? Yes, indeed. The trendy cincher has been cropping up in unexpected places as of late (layered over sweatshirts and oversized tees), and we think we鈥檝e finally found a practical application of the accessory for your gig, thanks to blogger babe Stephanie Arant. The don鈥檛-mess accent adds extra polish to a standard midi skirt and blouse, while breaking up the monotony of the earth tone palette.

7. Elevated Basics: Every working girl needs a handful of outfits she can turn to when she only has five minutes. Consider this #OOTD it. Atlanta-based blogger Monica Awe-Etuk proves that great style doesn鈥檛 require a closet full of trendy pieces. A great pair of wide-leg trousers, a feminine blouse, and a few versatile accessories are all it takes to knock your nine-to-five style out of the park.

8. Show-Stopping Stripes: There鈥檚 a reason Diane von Furstenberg鈥檚 wrap dress is still relevant 鈥 the ladylike silhouette looks fly on everyone, and its one-and-done potential is just too good to pass up. When you鈥檙e strapped for time, do like Blair Eadie and pair yours with pointed-toe pumps and a skinny silk scarf. C鈥檈st chic in seconds.

9. Bows, Baby: Don鈥檛 be afraid to embrace frilly feminine details in fear of compromising your girl-on-a-mission edge. Armed with a black turtleneck, oversized watch (styled smartly over the sleeve), and stunner shades, Ranti Onayemi-Blanchard proves that bows can be just as badass as a set of studs or pinstripes.

10. Jump on It: We鈥檝e said it once, and we鈥檒l say it again: Anytime is a good time to rock a jumpsuit 鈥 your nine-to-five included. A printed blouse effortlessly renders a sultry plunge style daytime ready, with block-heel Mary Janes and a sleek watch solidifying its status as your latest workweek standby.

11. Casual Friday Cool: Bust out the denim, baby 鈥 it鈥檚 casual Friday. Maintaining some degree of polish is, of course, required, but that鈥檚 where a Prince of Wales jacket and metallic kitten heels come in. Instant elegance.

12. Checks, Mate: Okay, we鈥檒l admit it 鈥 we suckers for granny-chic style, which is exactly why Sandra Semburg鈥檚 old-school-meets-new-school ensemble made its way onto this list. Can we just talk about those high-waisted trousers for a second? Goals, people, goals. A pair of double-sided pearl earrings and a perfectly applied cat-eye would feel right at home, balancing out the getup鈥檚 boyish vibe.

13. Cinched Shirts: Social butterflies, brace yourselves: Nicole Warne鈥檚 FROW outfit is what your office-to-after-hours routine has been missing. By day, the getup takes on a down-to-business tone with the help of statement studs and a longline jacket. At quitting time, it takes on a totally new 鈥榯ude with the help of sassy sandals and sparkly chandelier earrings.

14. Gone Gingham: We鈥檙e not sure what we love most about Anh鈥檚 refined retro-inspired ensemble. The palazzo trousers and gingham trench are straight-up working-girl gold, but it just might be the petite top-handle bag that has us swooning the most.

15. 鈥70s Chic: The fashion world鈥檚 obsession with the 鈥70s is on the wane, but we couldn鈥檛 let this little piece of throwback paradise go unnoted. This classy combo can easily be worn on its own with block-heel ankle boots and asymmetric earrings for a day spent slashing a long to-do list, or alongside a sleeveless blazer and stilettos for a look with serious desk-to-drinks potential.

16. Power Pink: Who runs the world? Girls. Show 鈥檈m who鈥檚 boss at your next board meeting by strutting into the office, portfolio in hand, in a bold pink suit. It鈥檚 at once androgynous, fanciful, and functional. In other words, the dream. Pandora Skyes would agree.
