I think I need to up my "power dressing" for summer or, likely, in general. But how can I answer the riddle of our unwritten dress code? It's more fashion than professional. It's more trend than classic. It's also -drum roll- on a budget. So what's a gal to do?
I've decided that my office dress code role model should be a little style icon named Lucy Laucht.
She's really a girl after my own heart. I've always said I prefer to dress somewhat plainly and play up the third piece [vest, jacket] or accessories, and that seems to be her aesthetic, too. But what I'm missing is the base that she's perfected. From the looks of it, there are several things I need desperately:
- The perfect white T [x 5]
- The perfect khaki trousers
- The perfect summer blouse
- Shimmering neutrals
- To put on some damn heels
At least I know my jacket obsession is not for nothing! But I really need tips for petite-friendly trousers and T's... please share if you have them!
Tell me, what do you wear to work? Have you ever had an awkward fashion moment with a boss?
