It’s been a little over two weeks since I’ve been up on press level, but I’m back once again!
As usual, I was in a scramble to get ready right after class. It didn’t help, this time that I had absolutely no idea what I was going to wear.
I’m normally pretty good with outfit planning, and even when I change my mind, I at least have some idea of what I might wear. This game was the exception, and I was a disaster. I had to do a breathing treatment right after class, due to the humidity and so I was a shaky mess.
Due to the craziness, I was subjected to a pretty simple outfit tonight. I did the usual black on black on black on black, but I added a vibrant floral printed blazer to liven it up and pull it all together.
One of my favorite things to do is add a statement piece to an outfit. For this look, the blazer is that staple. You have to be careful, especially with something so bold. Wearing all black with it is a safe bet, because you don’t want for it to be too busy.
Press Level Fashion Tip: I believe in situational dressing. I think that you should always be wearing what is appropriate for the circumstance. In this sort of situation, you need to dress professional, while still keeping warm. Men have it easy…they can just wear a suit and layer it on. When women professionally “layer” they end up looking like a marshmallow. Because of this, you should layer smartly. If you wear a dress or skirt, put some tights under, and maybe a blazer or jacket. Because you’re wearing tights, you shouldn’t wear peep toe heels (so not classy). Throw on some booties or taller boots. I personally don’t like the look of a pump with tights, but if you enjoy that feel free. If you wear pants, wear a pair of pumps to go with it. I strongly believe that a third piece such as a blazer or jacket is essential to any outfit (and that’s probably just because I work at J.Crew and they encourage it), so throw one on if you’re feeling it.
