I have the luxury to work for a company that doesn’t enforce a dress code, as long as I don’t show up in pajamas. Somewhat thankful for it, since I have an irrational fear of wasting a good outfit on an insignificant da
y. I am also the type of person to hold on to certain outfits for the right occasion. You can’t exactly show up to a rough construction in flats, these are my type of worries.
This post is dedicated to my dear friend Julia, who has been telling me she doesn’t know what to wear to her business casual work. Most of my tips I learned from “What Not to Wear” if you ever watched it you know what I’m talking about. We all have a certain style which I will never fight anyone on, do you boo.
Some simple rules to live by.
Loft has some great business pants, they are well fitted (well at least they look it). Here is my tip on overall clothes, they won’t fit your body the way you want so invest in getting them taken in to fit your natural curves! That was ALWAYS mentioned on what not to wear, because clothes are not made for our specific body type.
Pattern pants are great to go with your basics, they’re easy to pair don’t forget mismatching patterns is allowed (my mom still hates it..).
For my love of layers. Layers change the look of a button up in an instant, it adds color or texture depending on what you’re working with. Keep it light in the summer or spring, depending on the season go a little thicker. I love this one…
This is such a “I didn’t know what to wear, I just threw this together” look. The jacket makes this look, that’s it the jacket or else I would think it was ordinary.
everything, the white gives it that pop that completes this outfit. I think it’s perfect and I love it. Not the biggest fan of black on black clothing might be the Cali girl in me but it’s easy and chic if you’re doing it right.
SO! Don’t be afraid of pops of colors, invest in getting your clothes fitted, layering changes things,
everyone knows statement jewelry makes basics, work with textures, be you, BE COMFORTABLE!
