There are a lot of ways I feel like I’ve regressed since coming to business school (I can’t seem to manage my inbox, I no longer have a dishwasher, and laundry goes undone for longer than I’d like to admit). It’s also been quite a while since I dug into the section of my closet that has work-related clothing, pulled something out, and put it on. It felt like an occasion worth documenting.
This dress is one of my favorite work styles. The silhouette is really simple, so it has and will last for years without going out of style or showing its age. It’s also a color that works year round. In summer I ditch the tights and can wear it with a simple cardigan or blazer, and in winter, it pairs so nicely with grays and blacks that feel season appropriate. Today I decided to mix things up and layered my favorite turtleneck underneath for a bit of added warmth (and also to prove to myself that layering is a fail-safe option for any occasion – mission accomplished).
These are the two best pieces of advice I can give you when investing in a work wardrobe – pick classic silhouettes and go with colors that work all the time. At least to start. We can talk about getting creative once you have your basics down another time (and oh boy can that be fun), but if you’re just looking for the outfit that you can wear to any interview, these are the best tips I can give. Tell me – when was the last time you interviewed for something and what did you wear?
Thanks so much for stopping by!
