Suit Up in Our Favorite Work Wear

What to Wear to Work

There are two great times during the calender year in which to slip into a new self: early fall (ingrained in our psyche from years of first days of school) and January (the start of the new year.)

As 2014 wrapped up so did many work and school projects. Now with the holidays behind us many of us find ourselves on unbroken ground. What is the next step and, as we prepare to take it, how shall we present ourselves?

Business Attire for Women

magenta_coat-2

It’s hard not to look towards media for inspirations for our wardrobes now and then. This is a brilliant idea for any Minx stuck in a rut or any Minx looking to shake their style up a bit.

This outfit gives a hearty nod to both the Madmen era of office wear, with this fabulous bright pink jacket, and to the 9 to 5 era, with the deep blue blouse and black tailored trousers. All offices are different and business attire comes in many different styles, but what Minx wouldn’t love to channel Joan or Dolly while choosing what to wear to work?

Office Wear as a Functional Costume

Sometimes we need a suit of armor before we go out into the world. When the stakes are raised, as they are when our professional or academic persona is on display, then the need for a impenetrable suit of armor is in even higher demand than usual.

Pretend for a moment, if you will, that you have been cast in a play as Valkyrie. Imagine striding out onto stage, lights blaring in your eyes. A wall of hidden critics just on the other side of the curtain of blackness that hides the audience form view. “Be a Valkyrie” is your only direction, but you are in your normal cloths and you feel nothing like a Valkyrie. Now mentally dawn your Valkyrie costume: busty full length dress, braids as thick as your wrist hanging down to your waist, and a great horned hat. The hat is so heavy with metal and horns that you must walk erect just to keep from collapsing under its weight. Add a spear and shield and suddenly it is perfectly easy to believe that you are on your way to Valhalla!

This is the power of clothes, why we love them and hate them. They create an energy around us. Clothes are an extension of our inner selves. Every Minx knows that they are not a simple one dimensional self, they are multi layered. A well built wardrobe expresses all of your sides. Don’t let your work self suffer from hastily chosen or safe options for the office. Let this winter be the time you consciously choose how to let your work wear strategically help mold your professional look. Carefully explore how presenting the true you in the office you can positively change your work experience!

Billie Bustier Maxi Dress – Now available at MinxAsheville.com

Billie Bustier Dress in Cobalt

Try this: wearing a beautiful maxi dress just because.

Sure, this cobalt stunner would be the perfect thing to wear to almost any wedding you will be attending this season or to rock on a fancy night out.

But you don’t have to wait for the perfect occasion to wear a beautiful dress.

Cobalt Maxi Dress by Dra

You’ve head the saying, “you can never be over-dressed,” right? If you love something and want to wear it to the grocery store or just out and about, who’s to stop you?!

Billie Bustier Maxi Dress in Cobalt

The simplicity of this bold, beautiful cobalt dress lends well to its versatility. Remember that Articles of Society Denim Vest from Wednesday’s post?

Pop that bad boy on this fancy girl and get some messy braids going for a totally cool, everyday look.

Or style it up like we’ve done on Grace here with a DIY flower crown, art deco earrings and a candy colored wrap bracelet for a bit more formal of a presentation.

The cobalt blue hue is very “right now,” and the sweetheart neckline is flattering on almost any figure. But nothing about it is too trendy in a way that you couldn’t get away with wearing it anytime in the future.

It’s been said that our staff here at Minx are some of the most stylish women in Asheville. So, we thought we’d begin a new segment of posts where we’ll highlight some of these fancy ladies, starting with our darling Floor Manager, Katherin. We asked her to tell us about the outfit that she wore to work in the photos above and here’s what she had to say:

Eyeoto Dress: Cheap Monday is one of my favorite brands! I fell in love with the minimalistic approach to this hunter green beauty! I like how the side panel can be worn around the neck as a chic, monochromatic look. I wanted to try it first with two necklaces that are in heavy rotation for me.

Serefina Necklace: vintage chain, longer necklace, it’s substantial and grounding.

Tiffany Kunz Necklace: made from reclaimed bronze… this makes me happy – my fancy bow tie.

Frye Sabrina Lace-Ups: I am a huge Frye fan! I love the rugged versatility and sleek feminine heel. They’re my go-to boots for wintery, Asheville weather. I have a feeling my dresses will get to know these quite well 🙂

Sheila Fajl Cocktail Ring: I had to have this S.F. ring because of the cut-out star setting alone! I love popping it on with jeans and a tee. It gets a LOT of LOVE!

Thanks Katherin! We still have sizes Small-Large available of the Eyeoto Dress in our Online Store. The boots are completely sold-out (but we can special order them upon request) and we’re still stocked with lovely adornments from Serefina. Be sure to tell KK how cute she is on the blog the next time you see her!
