Uniform Behavior

Business Casual Uniform 1

On those workday mornings when I find myself up against the wall time-wise, my Business Casual Uniforms save the day. I’m fortunate in that on non-meeting days, jeans are acceptable in my workplace, but I try to keep the overall look polished. Here I’ve paired with a simple tee, black knit jacket and low-heeled patent pumps.

I love mixing a bit of shine and sparkle with my denim, here have added some rhinestone earrings, a gold watch and cuff.

  • That’s a brilliant, polished and modern uniform, une femme. You just can’t beat it!

  • Yes, I have a go to uniform: sheath dress and shrug, cute flats and must mix style and texture in my jewelry selections.

    You look smart and comfortable. Put together effortlessly.

  • Marsha Calhoun

    You strike the perfect note, or rather, chord! And you make it look easy.

    This is my ideal casual uniform – you will find me in some version of this every single casual Friday. For regular office days, substitute dressy work pants for the jeans and there you go.

    It’s funny, I read so many style blogs and tend to walk away feeling like I am a boring dresser because I have a uniform – but I can’t get dressed in the morning if I don’t have a uniform in mind. I like to add interest with jewelry and scarves but I also need to keep the clothing simple. I feel like I should be more creative and mix and match more, but your outfit up there is basically my idea of style perfection. So maybe I should stop worrying about mixing and matching so much. đŸ˜€

    What a great outfit! This is really a wonderful example of effortless chic – polished, elegant, simple and perfect for so many occasions. Also, I absolutely love your blonde hair color – you glow! It is just so right for you.

  • Ellen

    Just had to say I love the blond hair on you — I liked the red but had no idea how great you would look as a blond — haircut is perfect too!

  • Sophie, thank you!

    Sarah, I’ve worried about the same thing (being boring in my choices) but I do think accessories are key.

    Marsha, thank you!

    LaTonya, thanks! While some days it’s fun to get creative with outfits, when time is tight there’s a lot going for “effortless.” đŸ˜‰

    Patti, thanks so much!

  • Ellen, thank you. I’m really liking the blond too and will probably keep it.

    One of my “no-brainer” work uniforms is a solid-color fitted turtleneck sweater and a black a-line knee-length skirt (I have a wool one, a tulle one, and one with a hint of sheen). If I have time/brain power to do so, I’ll add a statement necklace or a scarf. In winter, I’ll add solid colored tights for a color blocked look.
