In a work-wardrobe rut? Tired of wearing the same old thing over and over again? Well you're not alone. I find myself in that place sometimes and so does Jessi Odenbach—one of our readers and Real Simple facebook fans.
Jessie left us this post on our Facebook wall yesterday: "Do you have tips for making my wardrobe more professional? I'm getting tired of skinny jeans and blazers :)"
Yes we do!
Whenever I'm feeling unmoved by my repetative work ensembles, I often go to one of my favorite websites for inspiration…the Sartorialist.
It's basically a fabulous compilation of photographs taking on the streets of New York City, Paris, London and any other fashionable city Scott Schuman travels to. His eye for spotting the most stylish and well put together outfits is amazing. After just seeing a few pages of photos, my imagination is sparked and I'm able to look at my clothing in a whole new light.
And although I often use the Sartorialist, you can also find dressing inspirations anywhere….the catelog (J.Crew's is amazing), a character on a TV show, your favorite coffee table book of portraits, looking through a box of old pictures, etc. Just take a look around you!
With that said, here is a collection of looks that I think can take Jessi and YOU into a whole new and exciting way of dressing for your work day…
How do you breathe new life into your work outfits?
