Redefining Work Appropriate Attire
Working in a creative environment means I have a lot of freedom when it comes to my work attire and dressing how I want and feel that day but I know a lot of you work in corporate offices and have a lot more restrictions and guidelines to follow!
So, that’s why I’m so excited to bring back my BFF Linette to talk about redefining work appropriate attire (corporate offices approved)! You probably recognize Linette from this post here! She lives and works in NYC and is a total boss babe. I’m going to let Linette take it away from here!
First of all, I’m thrilled to be back as a contributor! I hope my insights will be helpful to my fellow 9-5ers.
Working in a corporate office can leave you with very little time for your personal life. Pile on the stress of planning your outfits? It’s at the bottom of my to-do list.
This year, I decided to try the ‘uniform’ concept at work – narrowing down my base to black and white, and adding on a neutral layer (i.e. a grey blazer), or unique accessory to add some flair. I’ve been doing this for a few months, and to be honest, it has been LIBERATING. I absolutely love knowing exactly what to reach for each morning. The last thing I want, is to start my day cluttered with decisions. You know, kind of like Steve Jobs – I love this article on “decision fatigue” (check it out during your lunch break).
Would love to know what you’re wearing to work – anyone else try the uniform concept? What else would you like me to share? Let me know in the comments below! Until next time,
