I’ve gotten several questions of late about what I wear at work vs. outside of work. I label all of my posts with either “business/professional attire” or “casual/weekend/evening” to help differentiate, but below are a few examples of the clear differences in wardrobe. For example, as much as I love over-the-knee boots and mini skirts, they are clearly not appropriate office wear. For more tips on Professional Attire – check out my post Present the Best You.
Work Wear – I work in a fairly conservative business casual environment. I might stand out a bit more than most in regards to fashion choices amidst the khaki and button up shirts, but overall I just try to keep true to my personal style while still being business appropriate. I stick with a lot of dresses, pencil skirts, and blazers. I never go more than just above the knee with hemlines and I try to stick with no more than a 3 inch heel.
Non-Work Wear – I get to wear whatever the hell I want! I love color, feminine details, a little edge, and sexy stilettos. My “play” wear is really just an amped up version of my work wear – still a lot of skirts, dresses, and heels… only the heels and the hemlines are a bit higher!
