After working in a place where there was a standard uniform dress code for a little over two years, it was nice to get hired in a corporate office that the dress code is business casual. The business casual attire allows for me to showcase my sense of style but keeping a professional presentation.
So on my first day I decided to go in with a bang! I bought this skirt from the $5 and up rack at Sirens clothing store and it has been sitting in my closet for months waiting for an opportunity to wear it. The morning of my orientation was when I made the decision to wear the skirt and decided to pair it with my favorite yellow blazer along with my 70s inspired pumps that I purchased from Target.
This entire look was inspired by Being Mary Jane’s season 1 look of the all black dress and bright colored jacket. That look to me was very strong, sexy and chic all at the same time which is exactly the look I want to embody. My style while at work is structured with a flare of personality which showcases my talent of mixing prints and pops of color.
Corporate America is still very strict when it comes to the dress code but it has come a long way from where it was when you couldn’t even wear pants! I personally love to wear my pencil skirts high waisted because having long legs and a long torso I look much longer and leaner. The high waist and the stretch material in the skirts also works because being plus sized it will hug all my curves in all the right places. My yellow blazer was also purchased from Sirens clothing store and I love how comfortable the material is. I have also included some photos of some other outfits that I have worn during my first week in Corporate America!
