Bombshells! I hope you all are having a fabulous start to your work
week. To help you get into the swing of things and possibly get out of
your workday wardrobe rut, tap into today’s What to Wear.
Kirah writes, “Hi there, I
have a 10 day work conference coming up in a sunny country. Since I
can’t travel with my whole wardrobe, any advice on how to travel light
yet still ensure I am fashionable yet professional. It would be much
appreciated! Thank you!”
Your best bet at keeping your Luggage light is
to mix and match key pieces that you can easily restyle. Your
conference wardrobe should include your everyday work-ready essentials:
pencil skirts/dresses, blazers, button down blouses, pumps and the like.
To sass up your look, pack standout
accessories that will punch things up without forcing you to completely
revamp your ensemble.
For specific how-to’s, take a peek at a few more wardrobe ideas…
For the airplane, work pieces that are
comfortable yet stylish like a pair of dark wash skinnies with a classic
striped top. For an airport chic look grab a standard tote, stylish
sunglasses, and a vivid red lip. With a pair of wedge sandals this look
can also easily double as a sight-seeing ensemble.
Once off the plane, slip into a pair of
pointed toe flats and spruce up this casual look with a printed scarf, a
posh short sleeve blazer, and a statement necklace for a less relaxed
and more polished look.
Dress up a standard white button down with a
pair of J.Crew printed trousers and a black suede pump. Complete your
workday look with a navy tote and a simple pair of spike stud earrings.
From the conference to cocktails, switch out
the white button down for a berry hued silky wrap blouse. Add a little
pizzazz with a Sapphire Stella necklace, a gold box clutch, and a flirty
Tap into your inner executive with a printed jersey dress, structured blazer, and ankle-strap pumps.
Mix and match the blazer and pumps with a lace
pencil skirt and a black and white frilly sleeveless blouse.
Incorporate a structured tote and jeweled earrings for the finishing
And if your conference schedule permits a
little time away from business, break out of the workday mold with an
easy-breezy sundress in a vibrant hue, a pair of flat sandals, and a light jacket.
Transform this day look into a dinner-ready
ensemble with the addition of a multi-crystal stone statement necklace, a
black and white pump, and a beaded box clutch.
And that’s it! I hope I’ve helped you resolve your packing dilemma. Wishing you a fabulous time and safe travels.
