A few days ago I had a business meeting to go to. This is not particularly normal for me yet as I am still new to the work force and found myself panicking over what I was going to wear. I don’t have a lot of business/work clothes because, well, I just don’t like them. To me clothing is about expressing yourself by wearing something unique and/or being comfortable. Work clothes historically do neither of these things for me and so I never buy them.
However, I recently found a cool pinstripe pair of wool Michael Kors trousers that are cinched at the ankles. There was something just a little non-traditional about them, and they are acceptable for the office so I pounced and got them. I paired them with a simple black silk blouse (also by Michael Kors) and a pair of BCBG black pumps for my meeting.
What do you think? What do you like to wear to work? How do you put your personal twist on office attire?
