This capsule was inspired by quality pieces on the 2023 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. Today some are still in stock. My high-low mix has pieces available in XXS through plus size. The best thing about this minimalistic work wardrobe is that it’s super easy to recreate anytime and add your own personal style.
BLAZER OUTFIT #1 | LEATHER OR VEGAN LEATHER PANTS
Thinking forward to fall I suggest a blazer outfit with a cool pair of leather pants. These high-rise wide-crop crop pants from Good American have a generous fit. I’m wearing my regular size (25) in the photo above but sized down in the picture below. I love that they are available in sizes 00-26 Plus.
These from BLANKNYC fit similarly to the Good American style. There are some contemporary styles that are more fitted and taper or are tight around the ankle. I wear my long blazer with Spanx leggings when I travel for work. Score some Spanx faux leather leggings in petite or plus sizes too.
I’m wearing the French Connection style in this Instagram video.
Splurge & Save
These beautiful quality VINCE pants are an item I’ve recommended for years and are part of my New Wardrobe Checklist. They are so flattering on and there are so many ways to style them all year. Nordstrom has these 4 styles, including a vegan option.
Here’s a mirror selfie I took wearing an xs in the suede style. I’m 5’4″ so you can see how high the 9″ rise and 26.5″ inseam are on me.
BLAZER OUTFIT #2 | A SKIRT
Pleated Skirt Picks
This faux leather pleated skirt on sale is so cool. You can wear it with your blazer, a camisole top, and slingbacks, or style it this winter with a turtleneck and boots.
BLAZER OUTFIT #3 | BLACK DRESS
This is such a timeless combination. Style tip- Avoid awkward proportions when you wear a “long” blazer over a dress by wearing it unbuttoned or belted.

BEST TOPS FOR BLAZER OUTFITS
There are always plenty of black tops to pick from. These styles work well with skirts or pants.
SHOES FOR YOUR BLAZER OUTFITS
Dress to impress including your shoes! Wearing worn or dated shoes with a work outfit is one of the biggest mistakes professional women make. Score these styles when they’re on sale.
