In an ideal world, our work dress codes would perfectly align with our own personal style. It wouldn't call for suits if we prefer jeans. It wouldn't frown upon being dressed up or wearing bright colors if we prefer showing a little flair. Today's outfit is for both scenarios. If you prefer dressed down, this outfit combines the comfort of flat shoes and a cozy sweatshirt, with the formality of a pencil skirt. (Add a blazer instead of the coat to take it up an additional notch.) If you prefer dressed up, sneak in a skirt and fun colors without raising eyebrows by keeping it casual with a sweatshirt and flats. Would this look fit into your dress code? Why or why not?
