Today at Ask Amanda ... we talk uniforms. They don't end when you graduate. A slew of fashionable folks find themselves wearing some variation of a uniform regularly. Pulling it off in style is all about the extras and the beauty.
I wear a bank uniform to work. Buttoned down shirt with a logo with black or gray bottoms. How do I make it fashionable? — Shaquana Lewis
Sticking with a dress code as an adult isn't always an easy feat when you love unique style. But, a few accessories can keep you styling and sticking with the rules.
Most workplace uniforms mean sticking to neutral hues. The key to pulling it off with a twist — rich fabrications and unexpected cuts. Think new twists on the classics.
For footwear think a cross between a shoe and a bootie for a downtown vibe that's still professional. We love this pair from Brother's on the Blvd. perfect for both pants and especially nice with a pencil skirt.
Accessories like this amazing bold pearl from kiki remind us of the standard strand of pearls with just a dash of color added for some panache. At Hemline the bracelets with initials are a subtle way to add a personal touch to any ensemble.
For beauty, go for a simple red lip and a top knot for a workplace look that's low on time and high on class. Proof that coloring within the lines can still be done with style.
