Workplace fashion

Posted on
I recently started a new job with a VERY strict dress code. Blouses. Blazers. Pant suits. Slacks. Yes, I said slacks — but I’m going to have to check with my grandma to see what those even are because according to some, I’ve got it all wrong (no offense, Grandma!).
I desperately need to make dressing like an adult more fun. So I’ve been on the lookout for the newest office-friendly fashion trends that I can better relate to. My favorite: collarless dress shirts. They’re appropriate for my fanciest meetings/events but lean more towards the business casual end — which appeals to the younger workforce.  Here are my picks — all under $100 (they’re cute, but realistically I’m still not going to wear them on the weekends so they need to be affordable).

H&M $9.95:

Asos.com $47:

Vince Camuto $79:

H&M $34:

H&M $34:

H&M $34:

asos.com $53:

Nordstrom $78:

  2. slacks huh?? I haven’t heard pants referred to that way in ages- or at least by anyone in the younger generation. Cute blouses!

  3. I would definitely wear some of these outside of the office! Not so sure about those grey pleated “slacks” though.
