So you’re probably wondering why this post is called “mix ‘n match,” right? Well it’s because I am not a fan of matchy-matchy pant suits that we all see far too often when it comes to business attire. You know the kind - black blazer with black slacks with black shoes… how dull! So what’s my easy alternative? – Simply match your blazer (or cardigan) with your shoes, but change it up by wearing different colored pants or skirt. And don’t forget to add some fun accessories!
I’m curious to know – how do you keep workwear from becoming too mainstream and boring?
