Reinvent your spring office look with these picks from four local shops.

Covet: The Work Outfit You Need This Spring

Spring’s cropping up, which means it’s almost time to break out your maxi-dress/cardigan combo. Or your capri pants/blazer combo. And then wear them. Over and over and over again. Here’s a fresh way to spin your workweek look: Invest in a whoa-bold pencil skirt (this should hit below your knees), sharpen it with a cool take on the button-down—like this zip-up cropped top, which won’t even show a sliver of skin with a higher-waisted bottom—heels that deliver a splash of color, and a metal collar necklace (which you’ll wear over top of your buttoned-up collared shirt, not underneath). You won’t wish for casual Fridays ever again.

 Nanette Lepore crepe de chine top, $178 at Neiman Marcus, King of Prussia. Shumacher pop-print skirt, $659 at Knit Wit, Rittenhouse, Bryn Mawr and Margate. Nicholas Kirkwood mixed-media pumps, $760 at Joan Shepp, Center City. Concrete Polish Jewels white-bronze collar necklace, $275 online and at Ritual Ritual, Northern Liberties.
