Fashion 9-5: The plaid blazer

The other day I had an epiphany while getting ready to head out the door for my current clinical placement for school. For years I have never had to dress up for a 9-5 type of job as I have never had one. My field of work requires me to wear uniforms and I predominantly work shift work. Now, I have to rack my brain constantly on what is considered too dressy, too flashy, but still allows me to utilize my closet and show my personality in a business causal work environment.

  Many of you probably have this same problem, hence why I have decided to add a new section to the blog called “fashion 9-5”.  Whether you’re a teacher, work in an office, or anyone who works in a business causal environment this new section may be for you. I will be styling more business wear and sharing more of my daily business causal looks on the blog.

Today I am restyling this plaid Target blazer I wore in a previous post. The great thing about this  blazer is that the subtle pattern makes it appropriate to wear in most  corporate/ professional environments but still makes a bold statement.

    As someone who has had a 9-5, I have to say this is perfect for a stylish 9-5. Not too flashy and definitely not boring. You look lovely xxwww.tomilolaescada.com

    You got this look right. It can transition to an outing wear after the office by taking off the blazer and pulling out the Grey jumper/blouse? And voila! You will be ready to pain the town.
