Don’t know what to wear? How to make your wardrobe ten times more hip without going shopping.


The Pencil Skirt

Raise your hand if you only wear your pencil skirt to the office? Keep it raised if nine times out of ten your skirt is paired with a crisp, tucked-in button down—yes, it’s a classic combo, but let’s switch it up with some pairings that are already in your closet. It’s true, I’ve been sucked into the boring habit of wearing drab office-appropriate styles too—snap out of it!

Creative pairings with a pencil skirt make it less uptight

Pencil skirts don’t have to look conservative!

Try layering a loose piece on top but knotting it at the waist to create a look that reads boho. Maybe even use that crisp button-up mentioned above. Don’t go too loose, or it might read hobo—we’re not looking to emulate Mary Kate and Ashley circa 2006. Add a brightly colored clutch or statement heels—it’s perfection! Secondly, pair your workhorse staple with another workhorse staple—the white crewneck. With the right accessories this look is work-appropriate. Think chunky jewelry, a polished hairstyle and simple makeup with a bold lip. See, it’s easy!

    After having a college roomie who had zillions of outfits that she just dropped on a chair after wearing until the chair would fall over onto her bed, I’ve felt that a person needs great self-discipline to manage a large wardrobe…something I don’t think I have but wish I did.

    Am I the only one who wants a complete wardrobe of an anime/cartoon character? A closet full of identical clothes and the only time you will change what you wear is when it’s a special occasion. Just imagine same clothes different day for several years….
