NATANIA'S WORK OUTFIT EDIT
Finding stuff to wear to work can be a hassle especially when you snooze through your alarm three times. As I mentioned in my previous edit the field I work in means that I don’t have to be suited and booted 5 days a week however that doesn’t mean I dress like a scruff.
When shopping for work clothes I like to make sure I feel comfortable, smart and I’m picking something that is an add on to a pre-existing pieces of clothing. It is so easy to get swept up in buying clothes for work that you would only wear with a particular look. However, by buying something that works with both your smart /casual wardrobe then you can get more use/work looks out of it.
My work edit should hopefully give you suggestions for work outfits that are smart but not too pricey. For me I like to splurge on a good pair of shoes, jeans and a coat. For good quality bits like this I usually save up and head to Whistles, Russell and Bromley and & other stories. A smart coat and pair of shoes can make an outfit and last you for ages (My Russell and Bromley brogues still look fresh after 4 years). However don’t get me wrong if you have a nice pair of trainers that are in good nick incorporate that into your outfits.
My go to work outfit consists of a long shirt that covers my bum but well-fitted with black skinny jeans. If I wear a dress it is usually a simple jersey dress with sheer tights. H&M Basics do a great selection of Jersey dresses, skirts that aren’t too pricey however very simple to throw together and look smart. And finally my shoes which will either be chelsea boots, Brogues or trainers.
