Dressing for the office can be a challenge when you’re expecting. You might be confused as to what to buy and how to put it all together, but Liz Lange knows how to create easy, comfortable, stylish looks that will get you through whatever your day at the office might bring.
Liz suggests dressing to impress with a selection of work basics that will carry you from meetings in the boardroom to casual Fridays. Please see below for some tips.
- For most, business casual is the everyday work attire. The best way to dress for this is to focus on key pieces: a pencil skirt, black pants, a streamlined knit dress, a black jacket and a sleeveless top. Once you have these, you can create a full wardrobe by adding a few standout pieces.
- If business casual isn’t an option and you have to wear a suit, buy the foundation and then add in key pieces as you go. A dress, skirt or pants and then a jacket, paired with a few key pieces such as sweaters and blouses will give you more than a week’s worth of dressy office attire.
- For casual Fridays, you can take it down a notch, but it doesn’t take a lot to look sloppy. Choose your separates wisely. Save the denim for the weekends and stick with simple skirts, tailored pants, cozy sweaters and comfortable flats.
