As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, I enjoy wearing clothing that can be worn in different ways and for multiple events. The same goes for my business attire. If you’re like me and have an active social life, then owning a few versatile office outfits is a necessity. I love a look that can take me straight from the office to an after work meet up with friends. It’s so much easier than going home to do a quick change. Not only that, most of the places where I hang out are near my office in Buckhead anyway (when I’m actually IN the office that is).
Today I’m wearing the Striped Shirtdress from Loft with a pair of black T-Strap sandals I bought from Zara last year. If you’re looking for a similar pair of shoes like mine then try Loft’s Tassled Ankle Strap Sandals, I really like those. While the way I’ve chosen to wear my shirtdress may look casual, there are ways to dress it up if you work in an office that does not allow sandals. The same goes for offices that don’t allow casual dress at all. The easiest way to spice up this shirtdress would be to add a tailored blazer and closed-toe heels. It’s as simple as that. For an after work meet up or date, simply discard the blazer, rollup the sleeves and add a sexy pair of open-toe heels. In addition, swapping out the ribbon belt that comes with the dress for a stretch belt is great for cinching the waist to show off your figure. Now how’s that for versatile office outfits?!

I can’t stress enough how strongly I feel about wearing office attire that is not boring. I hope this helps to inspire you a bit.
