I spend a lot of time on the Asos website, particularly the workwear section, as having a nice outfit to wear to work can sometimes make me look more forward to going into the office in the morning. Does anyone else find that?
Technically I can wear jeans to work all the time if I want but I'm not currently a big fan of jeans. Mainly because I'm refusing to buy anymore until I drop a dress-size or two, and my current go-to pair have been attacked by my thighs, as per usual.
Anyhoo . . .
I got my favourite work dress (which I also, in Zante, wore as a going-out dress, as per the picture below - I generally wear it with black tights for work) from Asos. This was the dress I was complimented on at Heathrow Airport on the way home from my business trip to London last month.
(My glass of Greek rose wine is admittedly somewhat blocking the view. Apologies. But I was THIRSTY!)
So we've established that I REALLY LIKE Asos. Therefore please assume the rest of this post is somewhat tongue in cheek.
I've noticed, that among all the lovely outfits, there are a couple of ones I just can't EVER envision myself wearing to the office. So let me highlight a couple of these choices:
I suppose in a way this looks almost like my dress - well, in terms of COLOUR. The one shoulder part and the shorts part . . . not so much. I definitely can't see myself getting away with this one in the office.
Technically, it's the waistcoat type item of clothing which is on sale in this picture . . . but if I went to work in the outfit underneath, Casual Friday would become CELLULITE Friday. (Because obviously the only VIABLE day to wear it would be Friday.)
This would be an immensely suitable outfit - if I was an administrator on a spaceship, that is.
Lovely dress but it's the white that bothers me. I am not normally a clumsy person (except when drunk, obviously!) but put me in white and I become a spill-monster. The dress would NOT stay white for long. (And is someone with such a filthy mind ALLOWED to wear white anyway???)
Playsuits = bane of my life. I am always seeing what I think is a lovely dress only to realise it's a romper suit in disguise. Not that I don't think they look nice . . . just not on me! And CERTAINLY not for the office. Cellulite Friday all over again!
I have hips. This dress has even BIGGER hips. I don't think it would be the best of combinations...
I can imagine people nervously sidling up to me to inform me gently that I appear to have ripped my dress. And their amusement and/or embarrassment when I inform them it's actually meant to be like that.
I'd more than likely put it on the wrong way around to be honest. With some tit tape, maybe it could work.
Although even LESS suitable for the office then.
I don't really need to go into work, I'm really a movie star from the 50s. Once I've finished lounging around in a black and white movie, I head into the office for a break and to show off my lovely pyjamas.
I know this is suitable office attire. In fact, I really like it. BUT . . . I was more confused by the fact it was described as "in the style of Lady Gaga". If Lady GaGa worked in my office, I don't really see her dressing like this, do you?
Now if you own any of these items (if you own the blue dress at the start, you obviously have great taste like myself, haha), I apologise. I actually quite like a few of them, I just can't ever imagine wearing them to work.
What do you think of these outfits? What is your idea of suitable work attire?
