Work it at 20-something

Katie

AGE: 20’s OCCUPATION: Recruiting Specialist What are you loving about your current outfit? This is such a classic, cute look! I’m a sucker for big flares and while it’s a bit casual, tucking in the shirt and adding a belt dress it up. Cardigans or blazers? Do I have to choose?! I love cardigans because they are so versatile and cozy. Meanwhile, blazers pull an outfit together and add a nice, sleek touch. Depending on my mood and style that day, I alternate between the two. How do you do Monday vs. casual Friday? I typically wear heels Monday – Friday along with jeans, dresses, or dress pants. On Fridays, I tend to kick back with some comfy leggings, a tunic, and cute flats or cute tennis shoes. What’s your favorite thing about working at maurices? The people and environment are truly inspiring. It’s also pretty awesome to be able to wear my entire wardrobe to work. What work trend are you excited to try this season? I’m obsessing over the olive green trend and faux leatherfur looks.

Maddy

AGE: 20’s OCCUPATION: Digital Merchandising Admin Describe your outfit in three words? Stylish, comfortable, and individual. What are your go-to pieces for the office? I typically go with jeggings or boyfriend jeans paired with classic but edgy tops and accessories. I love all the different boot options this time of year so those are always a great addition to any office outfit. What must-have pieces take your look from nine to whenever? A third piece is key for this transition. I love throwing on a cute moto jacket, plaid shirt, or unique scarf over whatever outfit I already have on. It ups the fun factor and keeps things interesting. What’s your favorite way to dress up your work space? I have a small collage of photos, art prints, and mementos on my wall that always makes me happy. My postcards from Paris and the photos of my nieces are my favorites. If you had to repeat an item Monday – Friday, what it would it be? A plain tee. There are so many ways to style a t-shirt and still keep it fun. Whether it’s under your favorite moto jacket or tucked into a high-waisted skirt, it’s incredibly easy for anyone to wear.

Work it at 30-something

Sheena

AGE: 30’s OCCUPATION: Buyer  What’s your favorite way to finish off a work look? Shoutout to maurices 24/7 tees! I love wearing them to work with my lace-up wedges and a cardigan (hence today’s look), running errands in my sneakers, or layering with a suede jacket for a girls night out (psst…I have the real suede jacket from maurices and it rocks!) If you had to repeat an item Monday – Friday, what would it be? This CARDIGAN. I wear it over everything…from a peasant dress with tights and boots to my leggings paired with a sassy graphic tee. Cardigans or blazers? Definitely a cardigan girl… How do you dress up denim for work? For me, it’s all about the shoes. What work trend are you excited to try this season? Turtlenecks!

Leeza

AGE: 30’s OCCUPATION: Copywriter What are you loving about your current outfit? I love the fit and destruction of these denims and the stretchy fabric and color of this boyfriend blazer. What’s your favorite way to finish off a work look? Pumps or booties, statement necklace, watch, and a teased ponytail or laid-back updo.  How do you do Monday vs. casual Friday? Mondays usually call for a blazer, pumps, and extra coffee. Meanwhile, casual Fridays usually involve little black pants paired with a bomber jacket, and sporty flats. What’s your favorite thing about working at maurices? I love the constant flow of inspiration, ideas, and all of the great people I get to collaborate with. Especially when creative brainstorms and birthday cupcakes overlap. What’s your work motto? If “plan a” doesn’t work…the alphabet has 25 more letters.

    I love the looks ladies! I haven’t found a suggestion box anywhere so I thought I’d drop mine here. My 30 something, almost 40 something, career as a sign language interpreter requires that I wear solid colors. I absolutely love the perfect plus blouse. Cute & comfortable! I’d love to see more solid colors, especially in darker shades. Keep up the good work!

    • mauricesduluth

      Great suggestion! We definitely have a wide variety of solid colors coming soon!

  • designandfashioninspo

    love these looks, and am obsessed with Maddy’s jewelry and quilted sneakers!
