This post is obviously not for everyone, so I just want to say right off the bat that if your office dress code is more strict and not business casual you can come back next week Tuesday for SHOP WITH US: WORK WEAR. If your dress code allows denim then you're in the right place.

Luckily I am in the position where we can wear denim to work as long as it doesn't look like something chewed holes in it. The looks shown above is exactly how I would dress on a regular basis, minus the heels (I’m a flats kind of gal). Denim is truly such a versatile piece. For work, jeans always looks more put together with a blazer. You can seriously wear a t-shirt and jeans and just by adding a blazer it will look more professional. You can also pair your denim with a crisp white shirt and heels or loafers. You’ll be amazed by how confident and powerful you'll feel in this simple outfit. You can make the two outfits mentioned above pop even more by adding a pair of boots in a bold colour or print. If boots is not your thing just add a red lip for the same effect.

I think the most important thing when it comes to work wear is being comfortable. There is nothing worse that sitting at your desk, unable to concentrate because your skirt is too tight or you don’t want to go to the bathroom because you can’t walk properly in your new heels. Being comfortable will automatically make you feel confident and confidence looks good on anyone no matter what shape or size you are. Best way to be comfortable is to keep it simple and know that basics like the blazer or a crisp white shirt will be your new best friend when it comes to dressing for work.

Another tip, don’t wait until the morning to figure out what you’re going to wear. On the weekend, set some time out on a Sunday to plan your outfits for the work week and most importantly try everything on. I've made the mistake not to try on outfits and when I eventually put the outfit on the day I was supposed to wear it, I didn’t feel comfortable. Then you’ll go into panic mode because you don’t have anything to wear and everything else will just spiral out of control. Planning outfits just makes everything easier in the mornings and believe me when I say that the only reason you’re usually late for work is because you can’t find something to wear.
