OFFICE STEEZ: A STYLE GUIDE FOR YOUNG PROFESSIONALS

Tuesday, September 13, 2016
Let's face it.
We "millennials" don't really like being told what to do.
Especially when it comes to matters of self expression and appearance; we like those boundaries to be left up to us - NEVER CROSSED - and always respected.

We take our introduction to the world VERY SERIOUSLY, and wear our hearts on our sleeve (sometimes literally) to let everyone know exactly how and what we're feeling. We're like walking emojis, and i think it's safe to say that we're the most open, straight forward, genuine, and creative because of it.

Now for those of us who are not self employed, 23 y/o business owners - running niche, little, etsy shops out of quaint, 5 story walk ups - may run into some wardrobe woes when it comes to work wear attire.

We don't get to set the rules (or the dress code for that matter), and often times are forced to fit into molds that we were never intended to fit into. Particularly those who are working at "transitional" jobs and filling temporary positions until that next big break (or at least until Anna Wintour calls to offer you that dream stylist position).

We have all struggled - some, still struggling - with ways to remain comfortable and expressive of yourself, through style and individuality, within the limits of corporate America.

This is the part where i come in! I am now fortunate enough to work for a company that allows me to express myself every. single. day. (#clutch af) However I do understand your pain. I have been there before and I've got a few tricks up my sleeve to help you while you are there.

I have also teamed up with Tommy John to give my guys some help too so, let's get started:



Tommy John believes that style & comfort should exist together - as do I - and offers a great selection of light-weight, base layering pieces for all you guys. For us ladies, we pretty much have everything that we need at our fingertips, it's just a matter of putting it all together.

Just remember to double up on those layers, and choose fabrics/cuts that are going to allow your body to breathe, while still covering up all the necessary parts for the cooler weather as well.

Until next time:
BE YOUR OWN BOSS.
