While a select few are lucky enough to work in the glamorous world of high fashion, the majority of us don’t get to revel in that particular luxury, so it's hard to find trendy work pieces. Yes, we’d love to wear rompers and sequined shorts to the office, but the rules of professional dress always manage to finagle the upper hand. Indeed, corporate America can do a great job of limiting the creativity of your wardrobe, which is particularly frustrating for fashion mavens who love to cash in their paychecks for trendy garments. Still, some creative styling and key pieces can help you turn your cubicle into a runway and allow you to pull some of your favorite pieces out of the back of your closet. Spice up your suits and pumps with these sophisticated and trendy work pieces.

Christian Dior may have originated the pencil skirt in the 1940s, but this flattering sheath is a tried and true classic that must be incorporated into any professional wardrobe. The pencil skirt hugs your feminine curves to create a sexy, streamlined silhouette that is at once professional and stylish, making it a wonderful trendy work piece. Plus, six decades of popularity have relaxed the formerly stringent etiquette that governed the use of the pencil skirt, so feel free to select one that falls an inch or two above the knee and try unconventional colors like this wintry white.
