I need some fashion advice. For serious.
At my old job I could wear any old clothes, and it was great. I always felt comfortable, while still being casual and chic, even on hot days or when it was snowing buckets. I could wear sneakers, jeans, dresses, sweaters, heels, it didn’t matter. Heaven!
Now that I have to work in these more formal offices, I feel so un-fashionable, it’s starting to genuinely bum me out. When I wear my suit or other business clothes, I feel like an insurance saleswoman. I look like a pharmaceutical rep, in a bad way. At my current office, I constantly feel under-dressed, as if my skirts and dress-down-Friday jeans are just too casual. I am so tired of pencil skirt, tank top and long cardigan with ballet flats– it just looks drab and sad, and unflattering to boot.
I am tall, but I have kind of a blocky upper body–wide shoulders and a little bit of a tummy.
What work looks can I rock?
Seriously, I need a helping hand.
