Blazers are a girl’s best friend – I own at least 5, which admittedly is probably a lot less than some girls. But the break down is as follows: 3 black blazers (one 3/4th sleeve, one tuxedo style, one satin roomy – still needs alterations), 1 maroon corduroy, 1 navy, 1 grey and they are the staple of my wardrobe. I’ve worn them to business meetings, casual with jeans, on date nights, and even on very girly nights out.
Thankfully I don’t work in a business suit environment. The dress is relaxed but at times you need a little business dress in a fun way. Bring in a multi-colored silk skirt and a take on the traditional button down (here it’s light blue) and you have unique business attire. You can easily tone it down with tights and pearls or add in some fun accessories or the fashion girl top knot if you work in a very creative field.
What do you get to wear for work? How do you stay within your work dress confines but bring in style or your own personality? Do share!
