Before I started White Collar Glam, I was constantly searching for outfit inspiration from various office fashion blogs. I loved scrolling through their websites and social media, looking at incredible photos, and doing a little shopping inspired by their recommendations.
I built my own blog to provide even more inspiration to women who needed office-specific outfits. There are tons of blogs out there, but still not enough to help us dress for the one place most of us spend 8-5 Monday through Friday living our lives. That’s why I enjoyed having a few websites and social media platforms specifically dedicated to the workplace.
IN NO PARTICULAR ORDER, here are some of the office fashion blogs that inspired me (and that I still enjoy scrolling through on occasion):
Mary Orton is one of the most work-focused platforms on this list with her blog, Memorandum. Many work blogs eventually expanded to casual wear (not a bad thing), but Mary’s outfit inspiration and articles have remained pretty dedicated to the workplace, which I’ve appreciated.
It is not easy to find workplace-dedicated blogs in the first place and I didn’t always like having to sort through thong sandals and low-cut tops when I was looking for outfits specifically for my conservative industry (I previously practiced law as an NC and SC-licensed attorney). Nowadays, I experiment with outfits that have a little more flair since I’m an entertainment news correspondent, but I still love following Mary’s blog and social media pages.

2. Style Pantry
If you’ve ever searched for work outfit inspiration on Pinterest, you’ve seen Folake Kuye Huntoon’s posts. Huntoon runs Style Pantry and she’s known for colorful pieces and beautifully-tailored high-waisted trousers particularly. Her blog is fun to follow, but her Instagram and Facebook pages host a healthy amount of outfit inspiration as well.
If you’re looking specifically for office fashion blogs, Style Pantry is probably best if you have a more casual workplace dress code or if you’re ok with doing a little mental editing to some of the outfits. For example, you might see a crop top here or there on Style Pantry, which you know I generally would not recommend for the office. Obviously, a crop top doesn’t take away from the beauty of any of Huntoon’s outfits, but I’d trade it for a blouse if I needed to head in to work. All things considered, it’s still a beautiful office fashion blog that I highly recommend visiting!

3. 9 to 5 Chic
Anh’s style in 9 to 5 Chic reads like a constant mix of rich staple pieces that she skillfully arranges into always-fresh and fashionable outfits. Her page is a great one for women who may want to invest in a few high-quality pieces that you can mix and match to last a while. I love that she sometimes shares personal anecdotes that are always fun to read and make me feel like we are long lost friends.

4. Atlantic Pacific
Blaire Eadie is probably the most visible and well-known of all the bloggers on this list. She is a former director of merchandising for Tory Burch, has over 1.5 million Instagram followers, and even worked with Nordstrom on a clothing collection (Halogen x Atlantic Pacific).
She started her blog, Atlantic Pacific in 2010, attracting readers who love her eclectic taste, marked by plenty of bright colors, bold prints, and lots of layers. Also, she is always accessorized impeccably. You’ll have to sort through a lot of her looks or edit down a little to find outfits strictly appropriate for more conservative workplaces, but she’s still an incredible source for outfit inspiration and one of my favorite office fashion blogs.

5. Girl With Curves
Tanesha Awasthi is another blogger who shares more than just work-focused outfits, but her page is a haven for diverse body types. As her blog title, Girl With Curves, alludes, Tanesha is an incredible, shapely woman who selects figure-flattering looks. She covers casualwear, beauty, and lifestyle-related topics, but it’s pretty easy to sort through her page and find outfits dedicated specifically to the workplace as well. Take a look at her page and get ready to be inspired!

White Collar Glam
I’d be remiss to not mention my own baby, White Collar Glam! I’ve been working on this blog in various forms since 2017 and I truly enjoy putting together fun outfits and writing about fashion. My own style has evolved over the years, especially as I’ve switched from working as an attorney to working as an entertainment news correspondent. Thank you to my avid readers who have been on this years-long ride with me and I extend the warmest welcome to the new ones just joining the White Collar Glam family!
