I have been pondering this question for years. How edgy can I actually dress at work? I have been working in a professional and sort of conservative field for years. Almost all of the jobs I’ve had have had pretty standard dress codes. I am usually in agreement with them. I tend to dress pretty conservative anyway. I’m always covered where and when I need to be. I where camis under my shirts almost everyday. My legs are always covered in hosiery. And not to mention, my nails are trimmed, never dirt under them, and the look really nice polished or not.
I’ve gotten away with leather (my skirt, my jacket), studs (my DM oxford heels), mix matched patterns (stripes, polka dots, floras), even mix matched earrings (you can read my post about that here). For this update to my “forever wardrobe” we’re pushing the envelope with some pieces that scream fierce.
