Bright prints and florals will always be the spring fashion staples. I adore wearing bold colors as my skin looks amazing in them. Now some parts of the country are stilling getting this white stuff that falls from the sky, but being in Texas we are enjoying wonderful cardigan weather. I’m always on the web looking for fashion inspo for the office. I got a lot from this article from ThredUp. Working in corporate doesn’t have to be boring nor complicated. I don’t allow myself to be boxed in by what people think is plus fashion, I always will push the envelope and try new things.
Wardrobe Temperature Check
As I looked through my closet, I began to start taking into account what fits me well and what must go.
If anything you own doesn’t fit you like you are about to go walk on stage for the biggest event, then it’s got to go.
Now that I know what’s in my closet, I created a list of pieces I really wanted to try this season. I really adore bright, hyper-feminine items. It’s something that feels bad ass when I wear things that people don’t believe should be done by a plus chick or professional. As a woman in these corporate streets, many believe you have to wear boring drab fashion. As long as I am alive, I will fight that with dope fashion.
Updating your wardrobe doesn’t have to break the bank. I first hit my local thrift stores to see what they have that can hit my goals. I also hit one my favorite site, Thredup an online thrift store that has amazing brands and up to 70% off retail. We can always use extra coins in her purse lol.
Outfit 1- Walking on Sunshine
I picked this bright yellow Eloquii skirt from ThredUp that instantly felt like a sunny day. Wear pieces that make you happy, your mood and bounce will change. I am a big supporter of rocking whatever the hell you want. Bozma St. John defines what a woman should wear to the office. Own your power ladies and rock out. I paired it with my other love, stripes. The nautical vibe screams wealth and lavish in my book.
Outfit 2- Polka dots in the boardroom
I picked this up recently while out on the Spring Fashion search. I like pants for 2.99 that fit me well and are ever so dainty. Polka dots can add a playful flair to any office style. I love navy no matter what time of the year it is. Navy just exudes a certain I got money feel to it. As someone who isn’t a pants person, these fit the bill very well. I paired it with a nice white blouse I thrifted while in Ohio last year. I love going to places that don’t have style as I tend to find lots of vintage items on the low.
Outfit 3- Flower Power
Cruising through Target, I stumbled upon this little number. If you can’t tell, I adore dresses. I love the color contrast and it hides my bra, as I will be wearing this through the summer. This can be paired with a nice cardigan if your office is super conservative. I rocked this with some flats and a bold lip.
I hope these looks helped give you a bit of inspiration for sprucing up your Spring wardrobe. As always, look at what you already have before going out to buy. Many times, we have more than enough but
