Wardrobe Tips: Office Outfits - as part of the women's style series on clothing and fashion by GeoBeats.
Office settings today are pretty casual, and so what is really important is to be able to mix and match your clothes you would wear on a daily basis and be able to wear them to the office and vice versa. So I am going to show you a couple of tricks in order to do that. If you have a nice pair of jeans that are more like slacks, nothing too fitting, but appropriate for the office, you can really make this an office pair of pants. And the way you would do that is you would match it with a more of a conservative shirt, so to speak, a little more office-like, and then a more fitted and formal blazer. And this way you have got your jeans on but the top of you says 'office' and 'I am working'.
And we can also do that in the opposite way, which is nice too, which is if you have a black pair of slacks where it is a little more work-like slacks, here is a cute pair of just airy black pants, and you can put this with a denim top and therefore you are kind of doing the opposite of what I just showed you. And to put a fun jacket on with that you can just use a little light blazer. And it still says 'office', you are still in a blazer, but you are not wearing something so tight necked. And if you have an office that is a little bit more casual than either of this you can even put a black pair of corduroys I have pulled here, this is just a thin pair of black corduroys, and you can work these outfits with them just the same. And therefore you can even transition into the nighttime really easily because you have used your everyday clothes to go to work.
