It’s that time of year where the sun is more or less out to stay. We no longer need tights or even leggings when wearing our dresses. We can also unpack those sundresses with bright colors and floral. Spring has arrived.
I don’t know about you, but I have a lot of sundresses. I often want to wear these dresses to my job, which is in an office. It can be perplexing … how do you make something with no sleeves and often no back appropriate for the 9-5.
I mean, you cannot necessarily waltz into corporate America like this …
Hey guys, I’m ready to work. Don’t mind like all the cleavage and my back. Yeah, no big deal.
So here are three simple things you can add to that sundress to make it so your co-workers don’t have to stare at your back all day.
1. The blazer
When I put on a blazer, I feel powerful. I can do all the things a man can and many things better. Blazers remind me that us women can kick a– in a man’s world.
This blazer has always been a favorite. In addition to it looking powerful, it’s simply comfortable.
While the red necklace does not necessarily hide the cleavage situation, it distracts it for sure.
2. The scarf
The scarf is probably my favorite cleavage fix. You may think that scarves are only for winter. You’ve thought wrong.
A well-placed scarf totally hides any cleavage. It’s an especially great trick if you work with children.
3. The sweater
We all have a cardigan sweater or two in our closets. These are perfect to make any sundress office appropriate. Here I opted for a belt to add a more polished look. You can also just leave the sweater open or button it half up.
What are your tips for dressing appropriately for work?
