Happy Monday everyone! Today I'm talking about my 9 to 5 style with the help of Banana Republic. Not sure how everyone else feels about it but office style is one of the most difficult styles for me to accomplish. I think it's because I'm always struggling between what's office appropriate and what's still trendy and stylish. But I think I've gotten it narrowed down to a few key pieces.

Fashion Tip: So. A few things to note. Fitted pants are really easy to style for the office. The SLOAN fitted pants are my favorites from Banana republic. The quality is great and I love the way it fits my legs. I also prefer slim fit and ankle pants because I feel as if it looks nicer with pumps. P.S. Hands down my favorite considering I've tried pants/slacks from literally everywhere. (Price point is higher than some stores but BR always has great sales so keep that in mind!)
After you scored the perfect pants, you have to find a top that doesn't make you have to check yourself twice every few seconds. You know what I mean? That means, get a handful of tops that aren't too tight, breathable material, nothing too low (the ladies stay hidden at the office) and you can never go wrong with sleeves. Loose fitting blouses are the way to go. Do a half tuck with the blouse and pair with either pumps or strappy heels. I added the clutch because I like to have something in my hand when I shoot.
That was a longer fashion tip than usual! I usually keep my fashion tips to about 1-2 sentences but I've had a lot of questions regarding my corporate style. I'm still working on refining it so I had to let you know all the details. Another thing I'd like to add is that there's nothing wrong with tailoring. There's no way one brand can make clothes that fit all shapes and sizes so the best way for me to make sure I love what I'm wearing is to find a good tailor and fix everything. I'm not the tallest, skinniest or curviest so I'm always tailoring something. (P.S. Banana Republic compensated me for this post -- However, all opinions and tips are my own.)
Have a great week and thanks for letting me type out loud. I hope it helps some of you in figuring out what and where to get work clothes! Be back soon with another post.
