Going down the nostalgic lane, "I catch myself in the mirror, skinny self , in my long pencil skirt which had a half sheer bottom , pin striped shirt that fit, black block heels and mauve lippie. It was an era of "Never a slave for fashion " and I was the only one breaking rules. I liked the influence and power that came along with dressing well back in those days. Even now, beyond that, I liked the way dressing sharp makes me feel.
I have never been a fan of workwear since the time I became girlboss. Obviously you don't need an expert-endorsed outfit to wear to work. Sometimes its less complicated than you may think, and in more present times, if you are cool to experiment, its actually a no brainer. For eg this Monochrome Co-ords from Stalk Buy Love. What I needed to throw in was a good pair of hoops, wine lips and a popping bag , and I was done to shake up my office style and call it power dressing.
Its always a great idea to invest in basics. And with that I mean more of blacks an whites in the closet. This way they could be easily paired with a lot of other pieces.You should really know your stuff coz ,No one's gonna discount you for dressing well. But they'll sure as hell discount you for dressing like a slob, so why give them a chance ?
