How to Look Professional and Fashionable to Work
As you guys know I started a new gig. Since I’m not working in the IT field proper and working more in the corporate retail world life is a bit different. The days seems longer and the dress code is way different. If you guys… gals rather… have worked in IT then you know that the work attire is usually come as you are. Wear a nice blouse, jeans, and any shoes will do. They prefer nice dress shoes, but if you show up in sneakers they need to be super clean.
However, not in corporate retail land.
I have found that I need to wear business casual everyday, and then on Friday I just have straight casual.
Since I have not had to wear work business casual in over four years it was difficult to see past the blue jeans that have taken over my closet. However, this week I have been on fashion point with my looks. With my new work schedule I’m going to try and take my OOTD photos at lunch so I can post them the next day. However, I will take three of my favorite looks from this past work week and showcase them this coming week.
The problem I was having with business casual is how “stiff” it really looks. I mentally had trouble with wanting to look professional but I wanted my own style to shine through. After 30 days on the new job I think I may have found it. Eureeka!
The above video showcases two of my favorite fashion bloggers and YouTube girls, Wendy and Jean. Together they show great work and casual pieces that one can wear and how to dress them down for after hours. I can’t tell you which look I like the best because I think they are all great. Jean is a great inspiration when it comes to showing both youth and class in her work attire.
I seriously can’t wait to show you guys the work outfits!
Let me know what you guys think in the comments below. What was your favorite outfit?
