Springtime is always buzzing with excitement. For students, it is time to prepare for a summer internship or possibly, even a new job. The most stressful part, after actually finding the job, is to figure out what to wear to work. What is “business casual?” Is it always appropriate in every office setting? If you want to break out of the traditional business suit shell, how can you do it in a classy but chic way? I’ve searched through Shopbop.com’s clothes to find a few good examples of pieces that are both work appropriate and classically trendy. Every girl needs staple pieces such as these in her wardrobe if you can get away with spending a little more money for the investment. After all, pencil skirts and well-tailored blazers are timeless.
I chose a few items with bold prints or color to attract the eye without seeming too gaudy. You want to stand out! A potential employer will remember the girl in the red dress versus all of the black suits. If you are too timid to be this bold, try stand-out accessories like statement necklaces or flirty pumps. Layering is very trendy this season and classic black pencil skirts will never go out of style. Don’t forget to pick up a few structured blouses to accompany those pencil skirts. I like the ones with shoulder pads or ruffle details. The moral of the story: show any employer that you are not afraid to be bold.
