Things are going to changing around here a bit for a while. I am going to be working in the marketing department of a proper office (not my lonely little home office) for at least the next 6 months. This is quite a big change for me as I have been working from home for over 5 years now. Of course I have LOTS of clothes but immediately, I start to think, will any of them really work for working in an office?. Working from home you can pretty much wear what you like but from what I remember working in a office is going require a little more thought!
I have had a quick trawl of my wardrobe and discovered quite a few dresses which I think could work for an office. The one thing that I am sadly lacking in is a smart jacket. I have decided to make the most of the great sales and offers at People Tree this weekend and treat myself to some ethical work wear in the form of a blazer and dress (pictured above) that is reduced in the sale. I will also get free delivery and a £20 voucher.
I also grabbed a tailored jacket from the local charity shop for £6 although not hundred percent sure if the shoulders are a little on the puffy side and a floral print top for a few pounds which I guess will work well with a pencil skirt I have (another second hand buy).
As I have enough work clothes now and so many non work clothes that I probably won’t be wearing much for the next 6 months, today signals the beginning of a 6 month shopping ban, except for Christmas pressies of course.
If you are every in search of ethical / sustainable work wear or something to wear for an interview, I would also recommend Oxfam Fashion, loads of tailored jackets etc at great prices. Style-is.co.uk also has some great ethical workwear on its shift dresses page.
Do you work in an office? would you opt for ethical work wear?
