‘Werking Gurl’ Swag
Summer office fashion for the stylish lady
by Jessica Yudin of The Fetch Betch LA
Ah, summer…a time for fun in the sun, pool parties, and, unfortunately, work. Yes, work. Not to be a Debbie Downer or anything, but unless you are made of money, summer break is a thing of the past. Cry about it (I know I do), but until we hit it big in the lotto, we must work to fund our shopping habits.
As the temps go up and people begin to dress down, it’s important to remember to remain professional when getting dressed every weekday, despite the fact that it is 91,000 degrees outside. It should go without saying that bathing suits, anything sheer, cutoffs, cutouts, and/or flip-flops are a no-no. Even though you want to be at a pool, it doesn’t mean you can dress like you’re going to one; please join us in the real world. Below are some options to help you get your working girl swag on. Added bonus: They easily transform from day to night so you can go straight to happy hour the second you’re done making that paper! Werk!
