I’m with Jeanette! This outfit would be super comfy as I run in and out of the retail warehouse.
I’m having my first giveaway. Come check it out!
Looking good on a Monday, ladies! Even with this dreary weather outside, ModStylists still know how to rock it 🙂
Thanks for the tips, Modstylists!
But I work in a school and I always struggle to know what to wear. I end up looking boring in blouses and trousers because we can’t look casual or sexy, yet we’re not super smart :/
What about knee-length dresses and skirts, with conservative necklines? Perhaps something like this Frames and Fortune Dress (http://www.modcloth.com/shop/dresses/b-frames-and-fortune-dress) with a brightly-colored cardigan (red, pink, mustard, aqua, etc.).
Or a fun blouse (I’ve had my eye on this one: http://www.modcloth.com/shop/blouses/ver-dance-with-me-top) with a classic skirt like the Essential Elegance skirt (http://www.modcloth.com/shop/skirts/essential-elegance-skirt). (That’s totally a go-to skirt for me!)
I totally agree, kate a la mode. Knee length (or modest length) skirts and dresses and conservative necklines are my dreams for a work wardrobe.
Thanks girls. Great ideas! Though that dress is WAY too expensive for my work attire I do love it! I think I do need more fun blouses in my wardrobe!
What about a dress like the Soda Fountain dresses? http://www.modcloth.com/shop/dresses/soda-fountain-dress-in-cola
That’s the black one but there are a few other colours, they’re reasonably priced and you can mix and match them with cute cardigans. They look smart, cute and a little bit different to other dresses AND they cover you up nicely so you’re not inappropriate for the kiddies.
I’m also loving this one at the moment http://www.modcloth.com/shop/dresses/riviera-romance-dress
It covers up the chest, is a bit longer but in no way stuffy or boring.Pair it with smart flats or high heels and you’ll look great 🙂
What about for us hairstylists? I can not tell you how hard it is to find pieces that are classy trendy, fit my fashion sensibilities, are in black, white or grey and at a price point that I wont be upset if they are stained with color or bleach. Its a tough work wardrobe to fill.
this is my small list of things from modcloth that fit the bill. http://www.modcloth.com/storefront/wishlists/616860
I went from working in a law office to working in a publishing house with a VERY casual dress code. I’m still trying to find balance between uber professional and comfortable, yet classy attire. This guide is very helpful – props to covering all aspects of the biz, whichever you’re in. 🙂
I really like your guide. If I could make a suggestion though? Please stock more Emily and Fin clothes. They’re just perfect for work. I’m kicking myself still for missing out on the Good Migrations dress.
I work at a retail store specializing in jeans and while we are recommended to use store jeans (not a problem! I love high quality denim!), I am always on the lookout for jeans-mentality type of casual and cool print tees and tops. Currently I’m seeing oversized and cropped shirts everywhere, but it doesn’t work with my bodytype at all!
I’m sad I also can’t rock a denim jacket, because if I did, I could wear dresses to work. Otherwise it’s just not setting appropriate. 🙁
Keep on rockin’ work wear!
