Effortlessly Chic Work Attire for Women

Working at an office can have it’s pros and cons. People typically tend to talk negatively about office jobs, but they can actually be quite intriguing, depending on your personality type. In office jobs you can often meet a diverse group of people and create great friends or develope fun working relationships with coworkers because of the close proximity and every-day banter common at these kinds of jobs. However often times, people who are not fond of dressing up to sit at a computer, often complain about such aspects – while others get excited about finding another business casual outfit to feel like a boss babe at work. No? Just Me? Cool Cool. Anyways if that happens to also be you, here are some of the currently trending business casual office outfits that might inspire you on your next shopping spree and/or give you some extra motivation for your current or next office job!

1. A Blazer with a Pantsuit

A blazer with a pantsuit is such a sophisticated look. This type of outfit is great for any and all professional-type jobs such as attorney, state worker, clerk, administrative assistant, etc. You are sure to be taken seriously and professionally when wearing an outfit such as this one. It is a great combo, especially if it is a matching set such as the one above from Shein. If you have an office job, a blazer pantsuit combo is definitely a wardrobe essential!

2. Pencil Skirt Outfit

A pencil skirt outfit is sure to accentuate those curves. Not that it matters at work, but you know it’s always nice to feel confident on the job. What’s better than a confidence boost to boost your productivity, right? There are oh so many options with a pencil skirt. They go well with just about any type of top – blouses, collared shirts, cardigans, longsleeves, or any combination of those. A pencil skirt outfit is a great option for a work outfit – especially for professions that require professional or business – like demeanors. Just don’t forget to accompany a pencil skirt with at least semi – comfortable shoes!

3. Business – Casual Jumpsuits

Jumpsuits are such a simple wardrobe piece, yet they are such an elegant statement. These are perfect for office – wear for whatever office job you have, whether it be on the computer or up and about, or showing clients new real estate. Jumpsuits, of course with the right style, definitely give off the professional vibes you need for your client to take you and your job or business seriously.

4. Button-Up Loose Longsleeves

Button up loose longsleeve shirts are a currently trending wardrobe staple. They are great for work attire, but they are also great for so many other occasions. These loose longsleeves are perfect because they let you breathe with no added extra tightness of a fitted shirt. Not to mention, they make you look effortlessly chic and/or proffesional!

5. White Pants

There are endless options for a white pants outfit. There is something about the color white that makes the pants much more elevated than just regular blue jeans. Fitted or loose white pants are a wonderful option for virtually any office job (unfortunately not retail – as most retail require dark pants). Nonetheless, white pants are a must have, especially if you want variety for you new or current office job!

The Swedish Guy Behind Our Favorite Pop Songs

If you have never heard of Max Martin, you may be surprised as to who he is. In a sense, Max Martin is the powerhouse of pure pop. Wait what? He’s a singer? No, not necessarily. Max Martin is the man behind many of our favorite popular songs. Realizing this the other day made me have that “my whole life is a lie” moment. When listening to popular songs in middle or high school, I was totally thinking that the singer was behind the inspiration and lyrics for the song. Songs like “Shake it off,” and “Teenage Dream” by Taylor Swift, “Roar” by Katy Perry, “Can’t Stop The Feeling” by Justin Timberlake, and “Since You Been Gone” by Kelly Clarkson were all iconic songs many teenage or 20 something females would jam to, including myself. While listening to the song, I felt a relatability to the singer for composing such lyrics that often related to my emotions. I think that is often what makes us fall in love with the singer, right? However, little did I know that someone else, a 46 year old Swedish dude, was behind the inspiration and lyrics of these songs and the singers were simply performing the ideas. Like What?? Realizing this makes us realize that the world is not often what it seems. We often become so infatuated with a certain genre of music or a musician, not knowing that the music is unauthentic and fabricated by someone we don’t relate to at all, and possibly trying to influence a young generation for the benefit of a societal or market demand. In a similar sense, the person behind the franchise lingerie store “Victoria’s Secret,” was created by an old man in Ohio. But that’s a whole other topic for a different day. After knowing that some of our most popular influences are actually not what they seem to be – that is, not transparent or representative of it’s source – we should realize that many other popular influences are also not what they seem. We should proceed with caution and research before so easily conforming to or buying what is “popular.” Ask yourself questions like, Who is behind this product, idea, trend, etc? What are their individual and/or company’s values? Who or what am I supporting when I give in to receiving it or part-taking in the ideologies of the trend? We always always always need to ask ourselves these questions before easily part-taking in trends or hopping on a bandwagon just because it seems cool and everyone else is doing it.

For reference, here are some more popular songs that were actually created/written and produced by Max Martin:

Since You Been Gone – Kelly Clarkson
Teenage Dream – Katy Perry
Can’t Stop The Feeling – Justin Timberlake
I Don’t Care – Ed Sheeran & Justin Timberlake

The Top 5 Airport Fashion Outfits to Up Your Style Game

Whether you’re traveling for fun or for business, we all know the dreaded airport can be. For most of us, it means long lines and plenty of waiting. It also means making sure we look our best in (sometimes) uncomfortable environments where there’s not a ton of privacy. In short, it’s a perfect place to try out new airport fashion trends. But finding the right pieces doesn’t have to be difficult—and they don’t need to break the bank either! Below are some stylish options for the airport and traveling that will make your trips that much more comfortable. Traveling with long layovers at airports can be fun, but also exhausting. Whether you’re traveling alone or with your family, it’s essential to be comfortable while maintaining your fashion sense and style. Here are the top five airport fashion outfits that will help you to look good and feel great during your travel time.

1. Casual but polished


You’ll have many opportunities to flash your fashion sense on a flight or at an airport, but you’ll want outfits that are casual and polished. For example, a bright-colored dress or pantsuit is great for arriving at an airport in style, while jeans and a shirt will do just fine for your flight. A blazer and some jewelry can be key details that make an outfit stand out. It might seem strange, but those little details often give other travelers something new to notice about you when they look at you; it’s fun for them (and for you) when someone notices that cool brooch!

2. Basic black


There is a reason that black is an iconic fashion color. It is timeless and can work for any occasion. You may have even heard that black clothing absorbs light and therefore doesn’t make you look heavier. While that might be a little bit of a stretch, wearing basic black (or anything in black) can make you feel slimmer—which will always make you look better, especially at a time when your appearance could be under extra scrutiny (like at an airport).

3. Bright colours


Bright colors are always a safe bet for the airport. From scarves and sweaters to shoes and bags, you can’t go wrong with fun shades. For example, a bold yellow scarf will make any outfit pop at the airport (and not just because it’s the color of stoplights). It also goes without saying that anything in red is going to get your attention—whether it’s red pants or a bright-red shirt. Red adds some spice and pizzazz that would otherwise be missing from your outfits. Bright colors are big at the airport and even bigger when jetting off on vacation; experiment with different options and see which ones work best for you!

4. Seasonal wear (Winter/Spring/Summer/Fall looks)


It’s true that airport fashion doesn’t have to be complicated. And, it’s okay if you don’t want to worry about what you wear when traveling. But if you do want some travel outfit inspiration, consider picking up a few pieces in seasonal colors for the different seasons. For example, my favorite airport outfits include a cute light sweater and white jeans for the winter months and a cool summer dress with flats for the spring and summer seasons. It’s more fashionable to travel with seasonal clothes because it adds variety to your clothing options (you never know what the weather will be like at your destination). It also allows you get away with wearing less clothing because of the season as well.

6. Cute Luggage


Since airport fashion is about being stylish, but also about functionality, it’s important to have an outfit that makes you feel and look good. Different luggage and bags come in all shapes and sizes. Some are designed to be carry-on only while others can hold a great deal of items and accessories. But whether you choose a small crossbody purse or a large piece of luggage is entirely up to you. For some, having several smaller bags gives them more storage options during travel, while others prefer fewer bags so they don’t overstuff their luggage with items they won’t use once they arrive at their destination. The best part about choosing your style is that there are no wrong answers!
