I’ve worked in the corporate world for a bit only to realize that a 9 to 5 job is not for me. Though working there brought a sense of security, I came running back to my mommy when that witch of a boss hurt my ego. I haven’t been in touch with that side of the world ever since, but with my experience of looking like an awkward alien, I know that looking pretty at work has its own perks!
If your boss is not like the nuns at Missionary school who checks your uniform, nails and hair every morning, you are lucky because you don’t need to go to work looking like you’re going to see a dying relative. Pull out those quirky pieces that are simply lying around and get creative with them!
For your bright, printed dress, think black blazer, nude heels and a spacious bag to hold your stuff. Keep the accessories minimal and classy. A stylish watch, pretty bangle and maybe a matching neck-piece to show that you don’t hate your job as much as you actually do!
Remember the lip print dress you wore to that office party and now everyone knows you have it? If you can’t re-use it at another party, might as well wear it to work! Throw on a nude coat and wear it with formal heels. Wear your artsy necklace with it and you’re good to go! I’d recommend carrying a matching hand-bag but if you don’t have one, just carry the regular.
Every time I want to look intelligent, I wear my specks. In fact, If you sit in front of a computer all day, you must wear a pair of anti-glare glasses. So get yourself one just to show your boss that you’re hard-working and take them off when a cute boy walks in!
I picked up both my outfits from Rigo.in. It is linked below for you to check them out and buy yourself some gifts.
Stay tuned because coming up next is a look-book featuring these same dresses but styled very differently! Here’s a sneak-peak:
