I was spoiled by first post college job by being able to wear whatever I wanted; I was living the dream! For the most part, I could truly wear anything – jeans, rompers, tshirts, and thin strap dresses. When I scored my first office job, I was nervous about my perceived loss of style freedom that came with it. Office clothes seemed boring and more like a uniform. A button up top, black dress pants and black pumps, the same thing every day for eternity! A close friend took me to her “office uniform store” to pick up a few things for my first day, and I was amazed by the selection! Cute colorful pencil skirts in solids and stripes, sheath dresses in prints and patterns, and dress pants of all colors! Maybe this office uniform thing wasn’t going to be so bad after all! Over the years, I have slowly added to the office wear side of my wardrobe, even co-mingling pieces with the weekend side of my closet. At first office attire may seem a bit drab, but it is all about finding pieces with a little added flare to keep things office chic! One of the things I love about tie neck blouses is that while they are a typical work top, the bow adds some flare to make this a classic work look but still adding a little glam and chicness. If you have to wear a blazer to work, I love how the bow pops out of the top of the blazer to add a little drama to an everyday suit. What are ways you spice up your office wardrobe?
