Work It Wednesday #1

Hi guys!  Work dress codes.  If you've ever worked in customer service of any kind, you've probably been restricted in what you could wear while on the job.  There is no way around it.  It sucks.

Perhaps the most common is the dreaded all-black from head to toe dress code.  So many places have this requirement of their employees- and with varying degrees of severity, apparently.  While some jobs only require a black top and black pants, others take it a step further.  Recently a friend of mine was lamenting about how her company's all black policy extended to accessories as well.  Only metallics are acceptable, no color whatsoever, including on shoes.  Yikes!

With such a limited palette, what is a stylish girl to do?  Enter: Work It Wednesdays.

Each Wednesday I will feature some ideas of how to spice up a bland work wardrobe using common employee dress codes as inspiration.  The first of this series is pictured below:

This one's for you, friend! (wink, wink) Add a moto jacket or long line sweater and you're ready for drinks!

For each look, I'll take into consideration comfort, versatility of pieces and most importantly the details that can bring the look from hum drum to happy hour in a snap.

As always, you can find more information and links to each piece here.

Stumped about what you can do with your particular work place's dress code?  Let me know your wardrobe woes in the comments!  I'm here to help and I love challenges!  Plus, I may feature it on a future Work It Wednesday post.

All the best, lovelies!
