How many of you work in an office for long hours? Whether you're sitting at your desk all day or you are constantly up and down running around, you want to look professional and stylish. Although we want to look professional and stylish, our main priority is being comfortable while doing so. The worst feeling is when you are at work and it's just the beginning of the day and you are already uncomfortable because of what you chose to wear. Well in today's work place, it is possible to look professional, stylish, and be very comfortable! I am collaborating with a company called Betabrand. Betabrand is a clothing company that creates unique fashion that makes wearing clothes more comfortable. Not only do they make comfortable clothing, it is very stylish. Today's office world is changing, and it's all about being comfortable.
In order to achieve all three, I have some favorite office outfit essentials. These pieces are my go to when getting ready for the office. The two things that I make sure are going to create comfort ability for me are my pants and shoes. I do not want my feet to hurt me at all while at the office. My pants need to be comfortable because if I'm sitting down all day, then I don't want them to be too tight or not fit the right way. My first office essential is a neutral color, fitted, dress pant. I want them to look professional, but feel like yoga pants. An example of pants that I am talking about can be found here : women's pants page. My next essential is a neutral loosely fitted blouse. I want it to be loose because I am at the office so I don't want it to be skin tight. I like to tuck my blouse into my dress pants so I usually add a skinny belt. I will pick a printed or colored belt to add some pop to my outfit. Next, I always wear a blazer. A blazer is such a staple piece and will never go out of style. A blazer is a key to looking professional. It is always my go to item to dress up my outfit. If you are not a blazer type of gal, then a vest could be a great substitute. My next three essentials consist of accessories. I'm a woman who absolutely loves shoes. I have a serious obsession. I want my shoes to be super stylish when I'm at the office but usually shoes can tend to be uncomfortable. It's extremely important to find a pair of heels that are comfortable because I do consider heels an essential for the office. When I wear dress pants, I like to wear heels with them because I think they look the best. Next essential is a necklace. Since the outfit doesn't have too much "pop" too it, a necklace can really help to tie the outfit together. Lastly, a big purse is always needed to the office. You never know what you are going to need or what meetings you will be in. It's important to have everything you'll need and a big purse will help make sure you have it all.
