Workplace Fashion (Guest Post by The SVARA Blog)

As you all remember, one of my New Year’s Resolutions this year was to collaborate with other bloggers. I found this week’s guest blogger, Ash from The SVARA blog, on Stylegawker and fell in love with her style. I also was overcome with that feeling you get when you know someone from somewhere. Turns out my spidey senses were right and we had gone to camp together for a few years when we were younger. What a small world! Ash makes being fashionable look effortless and easy. I asked her to help me out with my other resolution, taking more risks with my fashion, especially at work. Check out what she came up with!

There’s something about work wear that makes people think boring. When I was in business school, the dress code was business casual, and man did people grumble. Personally, I’ve always been a huge fan business casual (maybe its because it makes me feel powerful and in charge?) And working as an accountant means that it’s business casual everyday. Despite my love for work wear, I like to keep things stylish and personal and far from typical accountant as possible. I’ve put together some fun ways to wear some work staples like pencil skirts and dress pants, and I’ve thrown together some outfits to inspire you to make business casual more fashion friendly.

The staple of any work wardrobe is a great pencil skirt. Keep things interesting with embellished collars, contrast piping, or just bold accessories. tumblr_n0hzswlS601qesbkio1_1280

For days I want something comfortable, dress pants are my go to. Try dress pants paired with a shell and a cardigan (top row), a tank and a cute open sweater (second row), or a button down.

A silky white shirt pairs great with a pencil skirt but to really keep things interesting, try a white tee and a bold necklace.

Work clothes don’t have to be boring. Try incorporating a print.

One of my go-tos is a dress paired with a long cardigan.  Cute and conservative.
