I’ve had lots of requests for work attire lately. I shared one look a couple weeks back but I noticed someone mentioned that they couldn’t show shoulders while at work. Which is bananas to me. I love me a good set of shoulders. People should be able to show them off! But that’s besides the point. I also love this request since my work attire is pajamas so this gives me the opportunity to play dress up and get creative with looks I wouldn’t normally wear.
But now I want to dress like this 24/7.
Just kidding. Pajamas are my best friend.
When it comes to work pants, everything is pretty basic, and honestly a tad boring. And I get it. Sometimes outfits need to be a little toned down depending on the circumstances. But if you can add a little flare and color to your pants, well it will make all the difference in your look…and attitude! When I put these red high waisted ankle pants on, I immediately felt powerful. I don’t know if it was because of the color or just because I never wear slacks, but I absolutely fell in love with them. And they come in 8 different colors including some of my favorites like hot pink, mustard and thornberry (similar to a mauve color). And since Express listened to what their customers were looking for, they recently added plus sizes so these pants are available in sizes 00-18!!
Now when you have fun pop of color, you can pair it with some muted pieces like a blazer or a dark top. Since I was trying to create a more conservative look with this outfit, I decided to go with a high neck bodysuit and covered up my shoulders…
