Getting the most out of your clothes // Creative Office Attire

 Finding different ways to accessorize your outfits as well as mixing and matching items will allow you to get the most out of your wardrobe (the most " bang for your buck" as they say).  Learning how to buy items that are work appropriate and can also translate into other parts of your life will help you in the long run to create a solid wardrobe. There are many times that I have to run from work to other functions (girls nights, date nights, cocktail parties, family gatherings) and I change up my whole outfit just by changing a small thing like a necklace or handbag. 

This outfit can easily translate to after work plans by changing the accessories or adding different heels! Hopefully you can take some of the same ideas to expand your work wear wardrobe! I work in a creative fashion environment so you may not be able to get away with the same hemline that I can but you can take the same ideas and make it work with your own office dress code.

 Dress: Madewell ( similar wool version here,) //Blazer : Gap (similar) //

Work wear necessities : 

1.Simple Black Blazer
2. Fun Belt(regardless of how stuffy your office is you can wear a fun
 belt with any simple solid color outfit!)
3. Black ankle  Booties/ simple black heel
4.Simple Clutch: Keep a simple clutch on hand for after work! Carrying around 
a huge bag or briefcase can get tiring and take a toll on your back and shoulders!
