How to Look Chic for Your Fashion Job

2015 has already granted me with amazing blessings. I love fashion. I love style. And I will officially be starting my first fashion job on my birthday!

I’m excited beyond belief. Taking on a fashion job comes with pressure to stay on top of the latest trends and of course to look the part. No worries, here are looks to help you look and feel confident with little to no effort. 

Shirt Dress 

Shirt dresses have been popular since the 1950’s and over the past couple of years they’ve certainly made a comeback. Needless to say they’re here to stay! Add them to your wardrobe and have fun rocking them from Winter to Summer.

They come in all types of materials including cotton, velvet, chambray, polyester, and more. My favorite accessory to wear with shirt dresses are collar necklaces. For cold seasons pair a shirt dress with tights or pattern stockings. You can wear them with anything from Oxfords to combat boots to heels. For Spring and Summer, rock them with knee highs or show off your bare legs! 

My favorite brand to snag shirt dresses from is SheInside, you can find these dresses there:

Wide Leg Pants

A fun and flowy fashion trend that continues to evolve are wide leg pants. Like shirt dresses, they can be worn all year round depending on the material. They look great with heels, flats, or sandals. Throw on a button up, blazer, hat, or statement jewelry. Wide leg pants come in different patterns or solids. The best part? They’re super comfortable!  Nasty Gal has a wide selection of wide leg pants.

 Color Block

Color blocking is an activity that never gets old. If you live for color then feel free to compliment your outfits with splashes of red, blue, pink, purple, yellow, green, nude, black, brown, and more! You’ve got to be fearless and bold to pull this trend off. It’s quite simple, wear solid shirts, blazers, skirts, pants, and heels. You can also sport color block dresses.

Button Down & Sweater Combos

I must say I am obsessed with button downs. I particularly love the collars and necklaces and sweaters can help them stand out. They are feminine with a masculine twist. For a polished look, wear button downs under sweaters or cardigans. You can easily make your outfit casual with jeans or boots. You can also wear For a dressy look wear slacks and heels. 


Black is the New Black

When in doubt wear black! Ever since I was a kid, black has always been a beloved color of mine! Black is classy, edgy, professional, fierce, sexy, and chic. It never goes out of style. When wearing all black, play with different textures, statement jewelry, or add a pop of color from shoes to your bag. One of my favorite accessories for an all black ensemble are layered pearls with red lipstick. Pinterest has plenty of trendy looks for the workplace. 


Pointed Heels

From metallic to leather to prints to solid colors, pointy heels are bound to let your inner goddess shine. They can be paired with dresses, skirts, pants, jumpsuits, and shorts. When headed to the office, you can wear heals as low as 2 inch and still look fierce. I love pointed heels with studs, straps, or blocked color.
