Hey guys, I know it’s been a while since my last fashion post but I’m back. With the new direction I’m trying to take for the blog this year (you may have noticed I’m trying to do more diverse posts). I want my all my posts to be valuable and more than just me chatting about an outfit (not that there’s anything wrong with that). I want my readers to leave with something from each post.
For my first fashion post of the year I’ve styled a zipper pencil skirt from Mr Price, in 3 different ways. Specifically looking at the different dress code terminology that is often thrown our way but isn’t so easy to decode.
- Look 1- Business Formal: Straight to the Boardroom
If you work in a more strict environment this one is for you. Though I added my own twist, I wouldn’t recommend folding the sleeves like I did with my shirt. I turned my skirt around and wore it backwards for this look as I think it makes it a bit more appropriate. Keep it to minimal accessories, neutral colors and ‘suit’ like pieces (tailored pants, blazers, button down shirts and even full suits if possible) and avoid too many accessories.
Shoes- Call it Spring | Shirt- Mr Price | Bracelet- Woolworths
- Look 2: Business Casual or Semi-Formal
This is one of the more common office dress codes. All it means is stick to formal business pieces (suit-like pieces) but play around with it and add your own twist- be it bright colors or a fun top or accessories.
Shoes- Forever New | Jersey top – Mr Price
- Look 3: Casual
If you work in this environment then lucky you! Casual means whatever you want it to mean, no blazers or other formal pieces required. And even if you find yourself dressed more business casual it works in this environment too..
Shoes- Edgars | Top- Mr Price | Leather jacket – Zara| Choker- Lovisa
What’s the dress code where you work?
