goop HQ goes quiet in August. The buzz in the hallways (and around the kombucha tap) is reduced to a low hum. Not present messages come and go. We’re at our desks, but we’re envisioning the weekend—and we want our outfits to reflect that mentality. In other words, they have to work at coffee meetings and cut out early. Below, five work-friendly pieces that also play well on the weekend.

Khaki pants

Wide legs are work-appropriate when paired with a crisp button-up (leave it undone to play up the exaggerated proportions) and sleek block-heeled boots. Later, switch in a halter top to highlight the tailored waistband and finish with a statement bag and kitten heels to complete the transition between meetings and martinis.

Dress with print

Throw on a polished cardigan with puff sleeves and wrap sandals to tone down the playfulness of a printed dress at the office. Come at 18, pull off the cardigan to show off the microflorals, sub in stilettos, and add some gold eye shadow: you’re ready for dinner.

Mini dress

For a crisp midweek look, layer a short-sleeved button-up under a little white dress and add tonal sandals and a streamlined shoulder bag. When the weekend rolls around, revisit the dress with pops of color, like a robin’s egg blue crossbody and a pearl necklace.
