Spring Looks to Adopt—and Avoid—for the Office

Perhaps nowhere in your sartorial day-to-day life is inspiration needed more than the workplace. Even the most fashion-savvy girl falls prey to the 9-to-5 doldrums — you know, the grey, white, and black rut. The shift dress groove and the navy blue suit trough can seriously dampen your day. Putting on the same old, same old, and heading off to the same office can become monotonous, no matter how much you love your work.

But what is a girl to do about it? A brand new work wardrobe every season is just for the Wall Street working-girl-about-town, right? Turns out you don't have to head into Club Monaco and slap your credit card down on the counter every time the weather turns, there are chic ways to add trends to what you already own. The result: a breath of fresh air and inspiration to your routine, and a new lease on your daily jaunts between cubicles.

Before you bury yourself in every current fashion magazine (or website) in the name of spring trend research, we're going to make it easy for you and share some office “Yays” and “Nays” for Spring 2012.
