Corporate Chic

The process of picking my outfit for work can be both challenging and fun. Challenging in a sense that I need to find something that meets the office's dress code but stylish enough for me to wear to a dinner date or other appointments later when I get off from work. However, I've embraced the challenge like a true fashion blogger and had mastered (I'd like to think) the art of dressing up for work!

 
 
This particular outfit, I think, might still be rather low-key for an office attire. I wore my blue sheer polo shirt with black leggings (a staple!) and my snakeskin pointed toe pumps. I really had no theme in particular when putting this outfit together. I simply grabbed the top off my closet and thought of other pieces I can pair it with. Thus, I can say that the top is the focal point of this outfit, which is why I decided to keep everything else simple and ditched the statement accessories.


How do you decide your office attire? Are they random or pre-meditated like most of mine?

  1. Love this color! I normally just pick out my work attire based on how I feel that day, which changes daily. So, I'm all over the place. Thanks for stopping by my post!

  6. Dressing for work is super challenging for me too since I like to think of myself as a very casual person, but your look is perfect!

  21. Great color on you! We're office casual... so I usually wear dresses or a simple pair of black pants & a fun top! Accessories & scarves are great ways to add a little something to your work attire!
