UP YOUR (Office Fashion) GAME

My mornings began early and my nights end late, and some days I have about thirty minutes to get ready before I leave for work. That doesn’t carve out much time to put together a thoughtful outfit.

What most women struggle with is finding chic outfits that are effortless. Not to mention, you want to feel comfortable in an outfit you’re in all day. I enlisted my friend and stylist Alexandra Bendana to help find looks that will make you look like you’ve got your act together. Here are some tips for leaving your house looking fabulous in minimal time:

1. The Statement Necklace

Banana Republic has one for $89.50 with an extra 30% off right now

 

2. Textured Leggings

Leather pants are versatile and you can take these from day to night. A stretch or lighter version will give you the ability to wear it all year long.

 

Karen Miller Leggings are at Bloomies right now for $110 (originally $170)

 

3. Dress with Bold Prints

Bold print dresses take the brain work out of having to put together an outfit. Add some low-key accessories and shoes…voila, you have an outfit.

4. The Hat

Ok, stick with me here. This is a little fashion forward for the office, even for me, but the more edgy, fashionable females at my magazine are sporting these. Pair the hat with a braid and you have a chic look on a bad hair day.
