Before I start giving some more information on every look, I’m going to introduce this post to you. This is a collaboration between The Fashion Folio and Monster Belgium, the number one recruiting network out there. I was asked to gather a few pieces and make a few outfits that could be worn to go on an interview or to go to work. Some of these outfits can be worn for both but I’ll explain that later!
Monster.be and I are also giving away one €60 Zara voucher to one of you guys! Find out more at the end of the post ^-^
This outfit was intentially made to go on an interview because it’s very good girl but not too simple. But since collars are so trendy at the moment, why not wear it to work as well? I’ve already worn this outfit for school, minus the shoes and the bag! You can also choose a different kind of dress, in one color for example. Just make sure the neck space isn’t too wide to prevent people from seeing the ends of the mock shirt. You can also pair the mock shirt with a pastel colored blouse and a high waist short, if you’re not so comfortable in a dress! Play around with your closet and you’ll find some great outfits
This is one of my favorites! The burgundy velveteen boyfriend pants are high waisted which makes this look feminine and classy but you also feel very comfortable. Rolling them up will make your ankles visible which adds that little extra to the bottom part of the outfit. I wouldn’t wear chunky heels but rather small, thin ones. As for the sheer blouse, let’s stay on board of the collar train! The simplicity of both the shirt and the top combined with the eyecatching pants makes this outfit so 2012! Add some pastel painted nails with few accessories et voilà, you’re so ready for that interview or the event you have to cover for work!
This is an example of work wear only. I think it’s a bit too colorful for an interview, but it’s really fun to wear for a desk job or in my – dreams – case: to run around the editorial office. And what do we have there, in between the simple but fun dress and the nude colored accessories: oh yes, a collar necklace! Being both colorful on the outside and the inside makes you a warm and welcoming person. Colleagues will love you for your style and you might be some kind of inspiration. Belgians wear too much black, so it’s your duty to add some change to the work place! Be colorful, now!
Another example of work wear only. I understand jeans is not allowed on interviews but that it gets forbidden? That, I don’t get. Okay, I do, in some circumstances. But when there’s no contact with one of the clients and you’re sitting behind the desk from 9 to 5, I think jeans should be allowed! In my case - still dreaming – it would be totally cool to wear jeans. If you can pull it off in a stylish way, jeans are more than welcome! A simple white tee combined with a lovely kimono – that one’s French Connection, in case you were wondering – is not only a step towards layering techniques, but also a bit warmer. We now it can get a bit chilly with all the AC at work!
I hope I served as some kind of inspiration. You do realise these outfits can also be worn outside the work space, this was just an idea to get you started!
