Hello, my stylish friends! Let’s start with the ambiguity behind “business casual”. For some of us, business casual demands traditional blazers and slacks. In other cases, such as in the apparel and beauty industries, business casual calls for more flare to, ironically, fit in. Believe it or not, my pop of leopard helps me “fit” the culture of some brands on the corporate side.
Back in April, I over-packed (as usual!) to prepare for anything from the low forties in the morning to the mid-sixties in the afternoon; I’m so glad I did, since I started freezing the morning of the office visit at Bergdorf Goodman, to later visiting the office at Levi’s.
Layering necessities include:
- Light, yet functional, jackets
- Low-chunk heels: not weather related but essential when walking (usually) miles throughout the city
Later that week, I visited the Dior office, when I wore the same tights and shoes but with one of my favorite dresses – even better, this dress came in extended sizing for XXS. Thank goodness!
Business casual: how happy I am to have loosely-defined rules for dressing in my field.
