At work you need to dress for the job you want not the one you have! That means don’t be a plain jane, stand out, get noticed! I’m currently in my first year of university and this means lots of presentations unfortunately, but it does mean i get to buy clothing for it! Most people I’ve watched for a presentation went for a black dress with a black blazer or a black skirt, white shirt and black blazer… Me, no, i thought id go for a bright orange blazer (as seen in my spring post, it can be worn for anything!) and a nude dress with some accessories!
Blazer: Mango £35
Dress: AX Paris from New Look £22
Belt: Asos £12
Bag: River Island £18
This outfit really got me noticed, not only is it professional, its fashionable! Plus i just happened to be doing a presentation on Amazon.com so the blazer really did match my work!
As for menswear i’ve got some experience in this, my clever boyfriend has recently got a year in industry as part of his university course, therefore a shopping trip was clearly needed to get him suitably fashionable for work next year!
Looking online M&S had some lovely suits, probably made better by the model (David Gandy, YUM) and also Next were great for money. After searching round the favourite of mine was a gorgeous navy 3 piece suit from Next, unfortunately the boyfriend didn’t see the need for a 3 piece, even though it looked amazing, so we ended up with suit jacket and trousers, a crisp white shirt and a lovely knitted mustard tie, that i made him buy because he couldn’t see how amazing it was!
Excuse his face, he doesn’t like photos so tries to pull the funniest faces!
Suit Jacket: Next £80
Suit Trousers: Next £40
Tie: Next £10
Shirt: Next £20
After this we also ordered some shoes from Next which matched perfectly to the belt, so his outfit was complete and he is definitely going to be the best dressed intern next year!
Have fun at work!
