Punching Up Your Work Wear.

Getting dressed for work can get a bit monotonous, no? You feel like you wear the same thing, over and over. This is especially true in the winter, where if you don’t stick to a pretty strict fashion diet of tall boots + trousers + sweaters, you’re literally out in the cold.

I find adding color in unusual places, prints, and fun but office-friendly shoes keep my work wardrobe feeling fresh.

I wanted to wear a new printed H&M blazer, which I planned on wearing with a basic white v-neck t-shirt. I resisted the urge to grab a pair of black trousers as a base, and instead chose these burgundy slim fit versions. A black and white brogue made more of a statement than a black ballet flat.

The printed jacket, standout trouser, and interesting shoe make this work outfit seem a bit extra (without any actual effort).

A few tweaks to the basics can make all the difference, don’t you agree?

  1. Your new blazer is great. I am currently looking to add a Printed Blazer or two and one with an inverted collar like yours. Burgundy Pants are replacing Black ones these days. They definitely make more of an impact. Your Oxford Shoes are so cute & very Parisian, also. =)

    Please don’t forget to enter my link up. Thank you.

  2. I agree with you about the monotony aspect of getting ready for work. Being a bit younger than the rest of my coworkers, I have less clothes to work with, and sometimes I just get sick of my outfits. A cool blazer is definitely a great way to spice up the wardrobe! Thanks for the tips 🙂
