I know. †It’s Friday and the last thing you’d like to be doing is thinking about work. †However, it’s a reality that we all must face. †Having been lucky enough to work in fashion offices for most of my “career” I never really had to do the whole “work appropriate” attire thing. †You see, in many fashion offices skinny jeans are equivalent to trousers and even ripped boyfriend jeans will fly (pending we are selling them in store and they’re on trend). †That said, I know that many of you stylish sisters aren’t working in such lax office environments and must adhere to a certain “dress code.” †That in no way means that you must dress like a stuffy secretary. †Fortunately, there are plenty of fashionable frocks that won’t make your boss frown.
