I love wearing skirts and dresses. Within the last year or so I have much preferred them over pants. I like being girly and dressing differently than most other corporate-casual Americans in their black pant & cardigan (BPC) combo. If only they knew that office attire doesn't have to be boring and/or frumpy (sigh).
A great office-friendly look can definitely be found somewhere in between BPC and a business suit. Black is not the only color they make trousers in. They're available in shades of gray, brown, tan, navy, white...AND they have different patterns too: pinstripe, houndstooth, plaid...just to name a few. So what's with all the black?
I know, I'm preachin' to the choir.
This is my go-to look when I want to ditch the girly-girliness for a busy-businessy look that isn't lame-sauce. Everything is very classic yet still on-trend, which is vital for business-wear at my ripe 27 years of age. I think I could rule the world in this outfit. My own world, that is.
