Workwear Style Tips
What is your personal style?
My work style closely mimics my ‘weekend’ style - I would describe it overall as classically chic, structured, and minimal.
How do you adapt it for the workplace?
Many of my favorite silhouettes and styling ideas I translate directly to the office - for example, I love a structured jacket and a high-waisted pant. For work, I’d wear that idea as a neutral (maybe plaid or patterned) blazer, a well-fit pair of high-waisted slacks, and heels. For the weekend - I’d keep the blazer, and swap out the rest for straight leg jeans and loafers.
What do you look for in workwear?
I look for versatility, comfort, and fit.
What workwear pieces would you invest in?
Blazers! They rarely go out of style and can be worn so many ways. A good pencil skirt and a few pairs of tailored trousers (both skinny and wide-leg) are also good investments.
What workwear pieces do you change up more frequently?
I change up my layering pieces - blouses, camisoles, etc. I’ll also experiment with neutral scarves or other dainty accessories.
What’s your #1 tip for looking and feeling good when you are exhausted or have little time to get ready?
Go for your most-loved staple pieces - that’s why you have them! When in doubt, I grab from a handful of my most classic and well-fitting pieces, and I’m always able to quickly create a look that I know looks good - which makes me feel good!
What is your favorite trend right now and how do you make it work appropriate?
Monochromatic looks are my favorite trend right now - they are so clean and chic, and incredibly easy to make work appropriate! An example - go for a tan pencil skirt and similarly colored sweater, and you’re both business casual and on trend!
What’s your favorite Project 925 piece?
I’m too indecisive for just one - but, I love this Wine Boyfriend Blazer and the Oscar Coat!
