Some companies are really flexible with regards to dress codes. Some others aren’t. I work for the latter kind of companies. I had to renew my entire wardrobe to make it corporate appropriate. However, I quickly realized that black and white working classics can quickly become boring. The usual pencil skirt becomes amazing only because you chose to make it amazing. So here is how I styled mine for the office!
All corporate environment are not as stricts. Yet, I must always be careful with my outfits. Although you should never judge a book by its cover, clothes always help to make a good impression. Since I started to work, I tried to combine both cheap and higher-end pieces.
I choose to style the pencil skirt with a common light burgundy shirt from Primark and a black blazer that I have been having for ages. You must have probably spotted it already in my “How to style the little black sequin dress” post. I accessorized the outfit with open-toes black pumps from Miss KG and sterling silver jewelry. To finish, I choose a grey handbag from H&M because I think it was really elegant and corporate-like.
The outfit is still classic. I haven’t gone crazy with the accessories. In a corporate environment, sobriety is important. At least, this is what I heard. Yet, you can be more creative and go for statement necklaces or bolder shoes. As long as your choice complies with your company’s dress code, you can do anything!
