No boss or company dress code should ever stop you from finding ways to make your business attire interesting. Sure, there’s probably a sad sad sad boss out there (emphasis on the “sad”) who hates anything colorful or is a little too conservative for his/her own good, but that doesn’t mean you have to stick to outdated slacks and blouses that look like you got them from your grandmother, right? (Nothing against your grandmother, I’m sure there are plenty of vintage gems in her closet, but you know what I mean.) If you’ve read my previous posts on corporate dressing, you might recall me saying that the way to work around this dilemma is to look for clothes that have interesting designs and cuts. You don’t have to go loud on prints and colors to shake things up. Take a look at this black and white outfit for example. It’s simple, clean and minimalistic but it’s far from boring as well. Both my top and skirt make use of different materials, textures and lines to provide striking contrasts that modernize this classic pairing. I’m sure the boss won’t frown upon this ensemble. If she/he still does, then we’ve got a serious problem. Calling Dr. Phil!
