[Style Post] Killing It In Flats For Work

IMG_0379.jpg

I don't know about you, but sometimes I feel like a lot of style bloggers' fabulous outfits aren't in the slightest realistic for those of us who work full-time in an office. At times, they are super casual or inappropriate, especially now that it's summer. They're even less realistic for those of us who live in metro areas like NYC, DC or Chicago, which my Google Analytics tells me a lot of y'all are from. 👋 Hey Muses! 👋 Welcome to my first style post: killing it in flats for work, because getting on the train in those lovely high-heeled sandals at 8am just ain't happening. I will be publishing style posts weekly focusing on work style, with some casual wear in between. We are aiming for full-time fierce ladies, because you can be professional and fly at the same damn time.

The trick to looking great in flats for the office is to always overdress. Because flats are a casual shoe, we tend to want to dress casual as well, which just ends up depressing our whole look. If you are wearing flats, it's not wise to wear khakis and a simple top. You will look like you're about to make a supermarket run. Dress as if you were going to wear heels: wear a blouse or dress, throw on some lipstick and grab a statement bag to elevate your relaxed look. This is one of my favorite dresses and I've worn it for speaking engagements, weekend outings and even dates. You just can't go wrong with a bold printed wrap dress.
