Another morning and another work outfit from me. I’m wearing S's H&M shirt and my favorite slacks. I found these in Portman’s last year for $30 and they fit like a dream. I love how they are high waisted and are cuffed around the ankle. Do you find it difficult to style outfits for work?
Back when I was a little shit and had an asymmetrical hair cut and wore LOTS of inappropriate clothing purchased mostly from second hand stores, I would have to buy a second wardrobe for work. Now that I have calmed down a tad and have normal hair I try and purchase pieces that I can wear on a daily basis and incorporate into my week day look. I also keep in mind a few “rules” when I get ready in the morning.
Throwing on a pair of heels with most outfits makes my look seem more formal.
Accessorize like a mad woman. A plain shirt and skirt can be dressed up with earrings or a scarf.
Plain white and black t shirts are a lifesaver and go great with lots of different cardigans, jackets and jewelry.
Straightening my hair and wearing it up makes me look more polished.
Wearing a blazer, belt and heels and sheer stockings with my favorite summer dress can turn it into a work piece. I do this with most my dresses.
Never wear any thing to short, sheer or tight.
For work I keep my eye makeup to a minimum. Instead I play up my lips or cheeks. Done up eyes seem to go down badly with my (male) boss.
Finally, I always stay true to my own personal style. When my work friends wear suits, I wear pants and brogues… you can always put your own spin to a simple outfit!
