How To: Dress for Work but Remain Comfortable!!

Believe it or not, I used to work in an office. I have never been one for tailoring nor clothing with a high acrylic content and unless you can afford a designer suit, this is often the reality that you are faced with.

There became a point in my office career where I'd had enough of being itchy, hot and frumpy. So I worked out a way of dressing that was not only smart but almost ironing free and comfy! I got away with this in a strict office with an extremely limited colour code.

The outfits I am going to show you might be a bit daring for your office, I will try and keep it as plain as possible but variations of these items in loads of colours are everywhere, you just need to look for them. I found all of these items on ASOS.




One thing I have noticed whilst writing this post is that you cannot trust what companies list under "work wear". ASOS for example had a number of crop tops, bright patterns and jeans. Now that maybe okay in the ASOS office but it certainly is not in most offices in the UK. When it comes to work wear it really is better to be safe than sorry. Your company is not going to make exceptions for you and work wear can be pretty pricey so if you're unsure, leave it at the door!!
