It feels like nothing but school has been on my mind lately, and to try and counteract that a bit I wanted to put together an outfit that isn't for students. Instead I wanted to go with a semi-formal business workwear look that while totally work appropriate even for the most traditional and old fashioned employers is still fun and fashion forward.
Top - As I'm sure you already know by now (as evident by my posts like trench coat outfit guide) I love crop tops. This one is especially cool because of the less common plaid print, normally I see this in thick flannel shirts) and the long sleeves that give it a more chic feel.
Skirt - Since this is business wear it's important to pair that crop top with high waisted bottoms to keep the look modest. I love this skirt because it isn't too tight but at the same time doesn't make you look like a box and the just below the knee length is super flattering.
Bag - Brief cases are one of the least flattering accessories, especially for women so of course I didn't want to add one to this workwear look. I did however need something to carry around papers in which is where this tote style purse comes in handy.
Shoes - Because the top is fairly trendy and twenties fashion I wanted to stay with a more conservative shoe. These pumps are perfect for the job. They're high without needing to be platform and are classic.
In the sequined tank casual outfit inspiration I forgot about adding in some makeup picks so I wanted to be sure to do it for this work attire outfit guide. Because the plaid print for the top is a little "out there" as far as work wear goes I wanted to keep the makeup light and simple, but of course still flattering.
Foundation - While for more casual looks I think a bb or cc cream is enough (or when I'm feeling especially confident a tinted moisturizer) for work makeup I think it's important to have that more flawless complexion so I went with a high end foundation.
Eyeliner - Of course you have to watch how much eyeliner you're putting on, I'm personally terrible about going too far, but a simple cat eye and half lining the lower lids can really polish a look.
Mascara - The one thing I can't leave home without is a coat or two of mascara. It instantly opens up the eyes and gives you a brighter look.
Hair Ties - With so much clothing, a hair style where you're hair is up and out of your face can really keep you from looking too dark and heavy.
