I’m still just beginning to get a sense of how my style will transition as I shift from a full-time administrative position to being self-employed. At first, I thought I might want to go in a more Bohemian direction, but when I tried those styles, they just didn’t feel like me. I still want to look modern, polished and put-together, though not too stiff or formal.
I’ve begun going through some of my workwear pieces to see if they can Adapt To Life On The Outside. This lightweight wool black jacket has been in my wardrobe for a couple of years, and was always a favorite. I thought I’d see if I could style it for a more off-duty look, and I think it has possibilities. I might wear a look like this to meet friends for a casual lunch, or go to the movies or a museum. So I’ll hang onto the jacket a bit longer and see if I actually continue to wear it.
Do you have any workwear pieces that you’ve successfully incorporated into your off-duty style?
