how can i make my wardrobe seemingly more professional?
while sticking to a budget.
and not purchasing an entire new closet at once.
i want to look nice, but still age-appropriate.
is this possible?
yes, i believe so!
here are a few basic (and affordable) items i have found
that can easily be incorporated into your current wardrobe.
they are fun, yet versatile, while still
presenting your style in a professional manner.
^^^ merona ponte elbow-sleeve dress with pockets from target ($29.99) ^^^
pair this dress with a black patent flat for more classic look,
or black tights and an animal print or red flat to spice it up.
^^^ steve madden angel ballet flat from dsw ($39.95) ^^^
a classic leather flat can be affordable!
wear this slightly pointed toe flat with dresses, skirts, dress pants, skinny jeans,
or denim on the weekends.
the pointed toe will elongate your legs, too.
^^^ printed blouse from old navy ($24.94) ^^^
pair this adorable blouse with a sweater or blazer,
and a colorful pencil skirt or dress pant.
^^^ worthington wrap-front pencil skirt from jcpenny ($26.99) ^^^
you may think, “magenta skirt, megan? really?”
the color may be bright, but the length and cut of this skirt
are perfect for the young, working professional.
to tone down the color, add a neutral blouse and tights.
for something more fun, a bright print and colorful shoe
can be worn with this skirt.
^^^ layered necklace from nordstrom ($16.00) ^^^
this simple necklace can be added to any dress or top
to provide color, and a little flare.
it is seemingly fun, while still maintaining a professional appearance!
^^^ tipped-collar crepe dress from old navy ($29.94) ^^^
you need some color in your life!
wear this dress into fall with a sandal or ballet flat.
simply add tights and boots this winter, or a chunky sweater
for weekend wear.
^^^ mossimo sateen blazer jacket from target ($34.99) ^^^
additional colors available!
a classic, black blazer is timeless.
simply add it to a printed dress for a clean, professional look.
wear it with a white t-shirt and boyfriend jeans
on the weekend to recycle your work attire.
transitioning your wardrobe into the working world can be difficult.
i am currently striving to make my printed dresses,
neon tops and skinny jeans, and eccentric skirts more professional.
sticking to your budget while making these changes is possible –
it just requires patience and a bit of creativity.
i recommend visiting old navy, target, kohl’s, jcpenney,
and your local thrift stores to purchase professional,
but affordable pieces to incorporate into your closet.
other pieces i would recommend?
a classic black sweater,
grey or black skinny jeans (depending upon your work environment),
a denim jacket,
black dress pants and opaque black tights.
what do you typically wear to work?
wear do you find professional, but affordable clothes?
