Always Have Something to Wear: Your Business Casual Wardrobe

One of the worst feelings you can have in the morning before work is the realization that you don’t know what to wear for work. Maybe you forgot to lay out your clothes the night before. Maybe you planned out a work outfit in your head, but it looks nothing like you thought it would when you put it on. Maybe you just started a new job, and you’ve been faking your way through with the few business casual pieces you have. Now, you’re late, and you don’t feel confident in what you’re wearing. It’s not a recipe for the start of a good day. 

Never fear—at Merchology, we have the solution: a guide to the perfect business casual wardrobe capsule for women! Capsule wardrobes are essentially a whittled-down wardrobe of basic pieces that coordinate well so you can mix and match them all together. The business casual wardrobe capsule for women that we’ve put together will help to make sure you always have something to wear for work. If you’re throwing together an outfit in the morning, you won’t have to worry—your outfits will essentially be made for you! 

If you’re ordering corporate apparel for women in your office, this guide is for you! Below are some of our favorite custom workwear basics for women!

Custom Business Casual T-Shirts for Women

The business casual T-shirt can be your best friend. They’re the best base layer you can find because they aren’t bulky, but they minimize sweat and maximize comfort at the same time. Custom business casual t-shirts are the perfect base layer under a blazer, denim jacket, or sweater. Business casual T-shirts are also perfect to pair with statement pants or your favorite trousers, creating a simple, classy, look.

  • Our Favorite: Custom Bella + Canvas Women's White Flowy T-Shirt with Rolled Cuff
  • The custom Bella + Canvas Women’s Flowy T-Shirt is one of our favorite custom women’s T-shirts because it’s actually flattering. Available in seven pastel and neutral colors, this rolled cuff T-shirt is a perfect base layer for your outfit. The rolled sleeve also makes it dressed up enough to wear on its own with your favorite trousers or jeans. Your company’s logo will appear on the T-shirt’s front, so your brand is on display!

    Custom Fitted Pants for Women
