Style Like You DON’T Work in a Cubicle
I’ve been waiting until this sweet day where I can speak about my second favorite passion aside from business and that is FASHION. Why now, you ask? Over the past week, I have had 3 chick coworkers vent about their boring wardrobe and exclaim, “This summer, I want to add some funk to my office style.”
Ladies around the office open up to me about their style woes because I am fearless when it comes to incorporating the new trends into the office uniform. Here are my tips to slowly start adding a WOW-factor into your get-up:
1. Pep Up Your Pumps
The blazer, slacks, and skirt can stay conservative on top and the POP comes from a colorful pump. Stop buying black shoes! Why would you when there are Coral Pumps and Banana ankle-strap stems?
2. Add a Belt, Scarf or Bangle
Belts are not ONLY for belt loops and scarves are not ONLY for under a North Face coat. Add a Blue python skinny belt on top of your long cardigan or a Pastel Statement Necklace over a simple white button up to make a statement.
3. Get Style Inspired!
SO many fashion blogs, SO little time! I peep these sites at least once a week for the FRESHEST ideas for the season. Here are my top picks.
TresBienEnsemble -Chicago gal who has got adding a conservative twist down to a science!
WhoWhatWear – Everything Fashion and Beauty. Get cues from Celebs and runway styles.
ElShane – My good friend and celeb stylist for Guilliana and Bill, to name a few, Lauren Shane. My personal FAVE blog because Lauren is not only creating her own style within trends but she is also an incredible business woman.
I challenge you to step out of the neutral pallet, add personality to your office wardrobe, and make a memorable statement with a few FUNKY twists! Just because you work in a cubicle, doesn’t mean you have to dress like it.
