Dressing for an office is much more challenging than every day wear. Being that I run a style blog loving fashion kind of comes with the territory so this new found challenge is somewhat exciting for me. Since I can’t wear jeans incorporating non denim pants has been the biggest but most fun challenge. For this outfit I just pulled a pair of my black fabric pants, but I have begun to slowly incorporate slacks. Wearing slacks is totally a different game! I think styling them is wear I have the most trouble. I’ve never had to wear slacks for a job before, so they are totally out of my comfort zone. Being small I also seem to have a hard time finding some that fit correctly. So slacks and a tailor are two new things this job is teaching me about.
Wearing a blazer is so fun though! I love this tweed blazer. Blazers come in so many different shapes and styles that they add such a different feel to an outfit. This one makes me feel like I’m borrowing it from an old English scholar. I don’t know why lol but that’s the vibe I’m getting! Trying to feminize a blazer like this though can be hard. I don’t think I’ve nailed it just quiet yet, especially with this outfit. I still feel like I’m borrowing the look from a man, but slowly I shall make it my own!
What are your tips for office wear? Do you prefer dresses or slacks?
Shirt: Forever 21
Boots: Franco Sarto
Totally obsessed with that blazer! I love that it is a bit loose fitting, making it so much more versatile than a fitted blazer! xx
Yes, the looser fit definitely gives it a different vibe. Thanks for reading Leigha!
I work in a really laid back office so we can dress down all the time, currently I am wearing a long sleeve tshirt leggings and nikes. But when I dress up everyone also asks why I am so dressed up, so I miss it!
That must be so nice though since you don’t have to get ready every day.
Such an elegant look!
I’m loving that you chose pieces from affordable every day stores! Love the entire look though overall!
Great outfit! I currently work in an office as well, but I prefer dresses. We don’t have a dress code, but jeans are only allowed on Fridays. When it gets cold, I usually switch over to a dress and tights or my skinny pants.
This looks is amazing and the top is a great color just for the fall! I love dresses but I think I could do this look.
