A lot of changes have been going on around them and one of them (a new job) required a wardrobe upgrade. Trading in the daily jeans for work wear trousers wasn’t enough though. I still wanted to show off my fashionista persona within an office setting and if you’re like me, here’s what you need to look for:
Classic pieces with a little flare – from a bold color or print to a edgy detail or cut.
Check these babies out and you’ll see what I mean.
