Every pre-professional has those mornings when waking up seems a more daunting task than normal. Whether it’s due to a faulty alarm clock or late night out with friends, every wardrobe should be equipped with a few items that make life, and those fabulous morning routines, run a little smoother. If your body is tired and feet are sore, try reaching in your closet for some of these options to avoid feeling uncomfortable for the rest of the day.
Of course we all love the unmatchable feminine power and confidence felt when walking the office halls in a pair of business-appropriate heels. But sometimes it’s nice to give those hardworking calf muscles a break and retire the pumps for a pair of comfortable flats. You can usually find a pair for a reasonable price while shopping at the mall or online. When choosing the best style for the office, it’s best to stick with closed-toed, neutral colored flats.
The Wrap Dress
First introduced in the 1970s by designer Diane Von Furstenberg, the wrap dress is not only timeless and versatile on every body shape but also the perfect go-to when searching for a balance of comfort and style. Wrap dresses are typically made with a comfy material and define a woman’s curves without looking too revealing. Be wary of plunging necklines, however, because most come when a V-neck cut that is attractive and appropriate when worn correctly.
There’s nothing more uncomfortable than feeling hot and sticky after deciding to wear business pants on a warm summer day. When a stiff pencil skirt is out of the question and the temperature isn’t pants-permitting, try out a pair of business capris that are not only cool, but extraordinarily comfortable. Many have a slim, tapered leg look for a more business chic style, and several brands carry capris with stretchy yet form-fitting material.
These are convenient go-to items for classy gals who simply need those relaxing days at work. Just remember to always use careful judgment when finding the right balance between business and comfort. With CL’s great finds, finding the perfect balance is easy!
