Business Casual

For all my #girlbosses out there, I’m super excited about this post because it is post #2 out of 3 in my Work Wear Wednesday’s series! Last week I talked about how to achieve a super trendy business casual look. This week I’m talking all about how to master that business casual look. I know I always get confused when I see the words “business casual.” Does that mean I dress business or casual? For the longest time I didn’t quite understand, but if being in a sorority for 4 years taught me anything, it definitely taught me how to dress for business casual.

I’m not usually one to grab for the black items in my closet first…I’m more of a color and pattern kind of girl. But when I am stuck for time or don’t know what to wear, I know I can always grab a cute black skirt or dress, pair it with my black blazer, throw on some nude pumps, and go. This kind of outfit shows how put together (even if you got dressed in 5 minutes and did your makeup in the car #GUILTY) and professionally chic you are. Next time you are running out the door, try throwing on a blazer and I promise you will feel as good as you look.

My look is a little more on the casual side of business casual since my skirt is a little shorter. I think in most companies you could get away with it, but if you’re looking for something on the super business side, you’ll have to wait for next week’s post! Continuing on the theme of last week’s post, I can’t say it enough…a good blazer is everything in the working world. And even outside of it too (I would totally wear this black blazer with a white cami, ripped denim, and pumps for a date night!). A blazer instantly adds that professionalism aspect to any outfit. Read on for the three types of blazers I think every woman should have in her closet.

Thanks so much for reading! Stay tuned for next week’s final post in my Work Wear Wednesday’s series. I am showing you how to achieve a perfect business attire look for those companies who have a super strict dress code.

Stay chic!
