What have you been up to? Is it warm yet where you live? Here it just started to feel like Spring. I'm just craving Summer right now. I need to get away desperately. I'm a city girl and I love being in the city but when the weather gets nice you can't help but dream of hot sand and clear blue waters. At least I can't. Greek islands are waiting for me.
But enough with the daydreaming for now. It's time to get real, people.
I'm currently on my second year at university and I can't help but think of the future and my career. Although it will take a while until my first career job it's still something that's in the back of your mind once you enter your twenties. So this whole future-contemplating process got me thinking about what I'd want my style to look like as a career woman.
These looks I have created for you today are quite varied, so I believe there's something there for everyone. Of course the style of your workwear varies from workplace to workplace, so it's not a standard thing. An appropriate look for a job in the fashion industry is quite different from an appropriate outfit for a lawyer or a teacher. However I think we can agree on a few guidelines.
This is one of my favorite looks. It's very hip and modern, it combines a lot of the current trends, such as the 60s-70s button up suede skirt, the mules and a patterned bag. The effect is kind of bohemian but in a contained, put together manner. This is a great example of how you can wear trends at work without going too far.
This look shows how you can wear color in the office. Bright colors should not be demonized, and they can add a great touch to a rather strict look. Just steer clear of obnoxiously loud colors such as neon, or crazy color combinations. This muted yellow pant is the perfect piece for an appropriate yet fashion forward look.
Denim in the office? Absolutely. This fitted silhouette flatters the body and has a strong element of put-together-ness. The sandals with the thick soles will keep your feet comfortable for those long hours and they match the rest of your outfit perfectly. Never forget that small touches like a scarf or a dainty piece of jewelry can spice up every look.
I don't know if you've heard, but culottes are totally back in style. Thank heavens, because this fashion piece is a very versatile and wearable one. It can be dressed up or down and it gives your outfit a flair without being too distracting. I'd suggest you try them with a crisp shirt, a cross-body purse and heels for a long and lean look.
This is the most ladylike of all the looks. I just couldn't not have a pencil midi dress somewhere in this post. It's so feminine and classy and I love a sweet floral print that "breaks" the sharpness. A good ole blazer is always a great key item to have in your wardrobe, and I think every woman should own at least one because it can take most outfits from play to work in no time.
Hope you found this post helpful and please let me know which look you like the best!
