A little while ago one of you asked us for some new and fresh ideas for clothes to wear in a business casual work environment. Now listen, when I hear the words "business casual," I automatically think of drab neutral tones, absolutely zero shape, and heaven forbid a pattern lets itself be seen. Pretty much a major bore alert.
So, because we know it can get old wearing a button up shirt and slacks everyday, and because you deserve to feel like a babe even when you have to follow a business causal dress code, we have compiled a little collection of must-have items you can use to mix up your work-wear wardrobe and to give you that extra oomph we all need every now and then. Or every day. Whichever. Here we go.
Here are the keys to wearing these items:
- Give yourself easy and basic options, like a simple black dress, that won't go out of style too soon and can be dressed up or dressed down
- Wear outfits that have some kind of visual interest, whether it be with a pop of color in bold tights, making a statement with a funky necklace, or wearing a patterned skirt
- Accentuate your shape by wearing a structured blazer or belting your waist
- Do not lose your personal style even though you have to follow a dress code (i.e. if you usually wear skinny jeans, find some skinny trousers to wear to work)
Here is how I did it recently, using the colored blazer, statement necklace, and skinny trousers:
Have a great day!
