I am the worst with dressing for work. In theory, I have all these adorable outfits that I’d wear, but in reality, I just wear what I already have, which is lots of cardigans and sundresses. Here’s one of those theoretical outfits I’d wear to work. I really like slightly ’50s, retro work ensembles (Joan Holloway = my icon) with a slightly modern twist.
This J. Crew shirtdress is adorable. It’s a lovely camel color, which is very of the moment but also flattering and versatile. The cut works well for a lot of body types, it’s fitted through the smallest part of your torso, and glides over the lower body. The elbow-length sleeves add a hint of sweetness to the utilitarian feel of a shirtdress.
To add even more emphasis to the waist, I’d do a skinny patent leather belt. The patent gives it a bit of an urban edge, and a cinched-in waist is always a good look.
What do you wear to work, Lovelies? What would you like to be wearing?
