Fashion Focus: Work It

It’s back to school time for the little ones but for grown ups it’s all about back to the boardroom. While a new pencil case may be on the agenda for some, the only thing we’ll be sharpening this season is our daytime look.

But how to you take your workwear from drab to fab? This week we’ll be helping you do just that, with a little help from some expert bloggers!

Finding comfortable and stylish work outfits is important to all of us. Since many of us spend well over half our waking hours in these clothes (yes, a tragic, but true fact), it’s essential we invest in pieces we still feel ourselves in, even after a fifteen-hour day.

Our first blogger Kristina Moore, explains how the perfect accessories can take your outfit kristinafrom a.m. to p.m…

We firmly believe that good style is both fashionable and functional. Fashion is no longer a guilty pleasure, it’s a business tool!”

My perfect work dress to take me from Boardroom to the bar would be the M&Co animal print shift dress. It’s ideal to wear from the office to after-work events. The classic design and micro print are universally figure-flattering and extremely versatile creating the perfect transitional dress.

Dresses with a sheath waist like this one are extremely flattering for any shape or size, and the best transitional dress to take from office-worthy outfit to cocktail-ready. I’d pair it with a blazer jacket in the a.m. and remove it in the p.m. Throw an evening clutch and a strappy pair of sandals into your daytime business tote bag along with a statement necklace, modern cuff bracelet or eye-catching drop earrings.
