When it comes to workwear, for the most part I'm able to dress pretty casual, which you might've seen on my Instagram, @snapsofmycloset. I'm lucky enough to work in a relaxed environment, where my authentic personal style can thrive. The only times I bring it up a notch to business professional are when I'm meeting with clients or potential clients. So I wanted to share something different for those times when I need to elevate my look. I usually don't have to wear a full-on suit (I only own one true suit), so I like to mix and match some of my favorite business-y pieces. Here I paired one of my favorite blazers from Helmut Lang with slim and straight black trouser pants. To keep things true to my personal style, I added a striped tee. If you need to keep things more prim, I suggest tucking it in. Add a pair of fierce black patent pumps, and you'll totally fit the part of an advertising manager. This look is definitely on the dressier side when it comes to my office outfits, and while I love power suits (or, mixed power suits), I always look forward to the next day when I can wear my skinny jeans and ankle booties again.
