Punching Up Your Work Wear.

Getting dressed for work can get a bit monotonous, no? You feel like you wear the same thing, over and over. This is especially true in the winter, where if you don’t stick to a pretty strict diet fashion diet of tall boots + trousers + sweaters, you’re quite literally out in the cold.

I find that injecting color in unusual places (burgundy trousers over your standard black, for example), prints, and fun but office-friendly shoes keep my work wardrobe feeling fresh.

I wanted to wear a new printed H&M blazer, which I planned on wearing with a basic white v-neck t-shirt. I resisted the urge to grab a pair of black trousers as a base, and instead chose these burgundy slim fit versions. A black and white brogue makes more of a statement than a black ballet flat.

The printed jacket, standout trouser, and interesting shoe make this work outfit seem a bit extra (without any real actual effort).
