Outfit Formulas For the Busy Gal

August 15, 2018

I’ve gotten a LOT of requests for some not-so boring outfits for the office that also don’t require a lot of brain power. You ladies are busy & always on the go so I thought, why not pull out my old teacher ways and make a fashion math formula?! Take out your pens & notebooks & copy this down…

Versatile Top + Versatile Bottom + Neutral Shoe + Blazer = Outfit


What is a versatile top?

Let me start out by saying versatile does NOT have to be boring!! Look for anything that can be worn both tucked in & left out. I love a good peplum top as good as the next girl, but they can be limiting with what bottoms you can wear with it. Adding those “fashion silhouettes” to your closet is good to change it up a bit, but stocking up on these for work is always good.

What is a versatile bottom?

Pretty much the same as above! Pencil skirts & slacks are always good to have on deck for an office job, but it’s nice to change it up with some high-waisted options too to add a little fashion flair to your board meeting. Again, doesn’t need to be boring! The ruching on this pencil skirt gives an elevated element, and these high-waisted cropped white pants are perfect to kick your normal top up a few notches.

Neutral Shoe?

Ok let’s get one thing straight here: leopard is a neutral in my book (see: yesterday’s post on wearing animal print to work). For the days when your animal instincts aren’t kicking in, opt for shoes in the “neutral” palette — tan, blush, black, brown. They easily pair with an outfit so you won’t need to think twice!

And to complete your #bosslady look, top it all off with a sleek blazer & you’re ready for the day!
