Look of the Week - First Day of Work - Kelseys Look

 

What makes this combination of items perfect for a first day of work look?

The combo is professional, but has personality to it. You’ll want to radiate both on your first day of work!

What’s the most important thing to remember when you’re selecting your outfit for your first day of work?

Remember that your first day at a new job can be overwhelming and stressful. That can be amplified if you’re uncomfortable. Choose an outfit that flatters, colors that you feel confident in, and is above all COMFORTABLE. That includes your shoes.

How can you balance looking professional at the office, but still expressing your personal style?

Jewelry is a great way to show your personality while also maintaining a very professional base outfit. Add a pop of color to a charcoal suit by adding a ruby pendant or show your personality by layering your favorite chains. Don’t forget to mix your metals!

What’s the best way to transition your work ensemble into an outfit for a night out?

Your handbag says a lot about what activity your doing or event you’re going to. Keep your essentials in a clutch and keep your clutch inside your larger bag you take to work. When you’re ready to go out, ditch the handbag and take your clutch out. It’s perfect for meeting coworkers out for happy hour or your husband out for dinner.

Do you remember what you wore on your first day of work at the LC? 

I do! I wore a comfortable yet professional black dress, flats, and pearl stud earrings. I was ready to walk and move comfortably and I felt confident in my favorite go-to color.

Becky’s Look

Look of the Week - First Day of Work - Beckys Look

 

What makes this combination of items perfect for a first day of work look?

This outfit acts as an introduction because it easily expresses your personality. It’s a great greeting, and the selection tells everyone a little bit about yourself.

 

What’s the most important thing to remember when you’re selecting your outfit for your first day of work?

Always wear something that is comfortable because it’s a brand new day for you. I call it my old friend rule. It’s an outfit you know you automatically look great in. This gives you more confidence because you have one less thing to worry about. It is not the day to experiment with a new trend.

How can you balance looking professional at the office, but still expressing your personal style?

Stay comfortable and stay true to yourself. Take a look in the mirror and take your outfit down a notch. When in doubt, go back to the basics.

What’s the best way to transition your work ensemble into an outfit for a night out?

Add something that has a bit of sparkle or fringe. Anything that features an element that’s a little over the top for work will add intensity for a fun night out.

Do you remember what you wore on your first day of work at the LC? 

Oh my goodness, I probably wore a little black dress, diamond studs and a stainless steel watch because that’s my go-to outfit.
