Hello, like I promised I will be talking about work attire this upcoming Fall 2017. Now, I wish I was like some people who can wear whatever they mostly like to work, but unfortunately, I cannot do that. Like most people, I have to consider work-friendly attire that is comfortable and fit certain needs…. I am working with limits.
Now my limits consist of certain rules….
- Must wear pants (preferably black)
- Cannot wear off the shoulder or tank tops.
- Cannot wear strapless bras
- .Must wear closed-toe shoes (black)
- Try to wear something with lots of pockets
- Not really an option….. will mainly be working in a warm environment.
Yeah! These rules have left me with not that many options in my wardrobe. And if you have to deal with something similar at your work, I feel your pain. All I ever wanted is to look cute and fashionable at work. But how can I look good but also fit those needs? Well, here is the solution I can up with.
First, if you can get away with bending the rules just a little…. why not? Instead of just black pants try a different color, like red. Red is a must-have for fall. Or even different textures, like corduroy or satin. Second is thinking about different pattern blouses. I’m wearing what might look like polka dots, but it’s Mikey’s! When I have limits I like to play with colors and patterns. I will also by multiple colors of the same top or pant because I know it will work with the dress code and be also comfortable. Last, is shoes. With closed-toe shoes that have to be comfortable (I’m on my feet all day), I will wear different sneakers or booties. The best thing about wearing something almost every day is that it wears out faster so you can get new clothes more often with a great excuse.
Love You All,
