We are introducing a new dress code at work. They want us to wear suits or ‘smart’ workwear. At the moment I am queen of the floral dress and long cardi combo. I usually pile on a few long necklaces and as much make up as I can slap on my face in an attempt to look less like the undead. I only wear dresses and a few of my students have commented that they never see the same one twice which is either a lie or massively worrying – though would explain my bank balance.
I am really struggling to find nice work wear. ASOS has a section called suits and blazers but it contains such ‘work friendly’ gems as this one which I don’t think would go down too well with my line manager..
I have been scouring all my usual websites but can’t find anything I like. It all seems too ‘fashion forward.’ Floral skin tight suits, low cut lace tops that look more like underwear. Pencil skirts that would look more at home on a burlesque stage. I don’t suit suits at all – am too busty and they make me look boxy or like I am wearing a school uniform. The closest I could get to liking anything online stores had to offer were these outfits from Oasis
The second one is gorgeous – I love the colours and overall feel of the outfit but I don’t think it is quite right. Sheer is a bit too daring to be worn in front of teenage boys I think.
Where do you buy nice workwear nowadays?!
