A Preppy Work Outfit In 3 No-Brainer Pieces

Getting dressed for work is usually a stressful process or an uninspiring one — but we've got an outfit that's neither of the two. In just three pieces, this J.Crew work look is both preppy and polished but isn't precious in the least. In a one-two-three punch of structure, zing, and professionalism, it's basically the perfect combination when it comes to a casual day at the office. A structured shift dress in a half-sleeve shape is a staple-sort of piece and looks refreshingly dressed-up with lipstick-red flats and a white button-down (rolled-up sleeves, please!).
