6 Tips to Look Fab on the Job

It's that time of year! College graduation, when many students begin their first big-girl jobs or internships soon after. (Martha & I are one year away from our graduation...is that even real?!). First of all, congrats on landing that job or internship! Now let's get to business. Time to trade in your crop tops and booty shorts for blazers and blouses. But first! Get a feel for your office's atmosphere. What are others wearing? What can you get away with? Is it strictly suit & tie? Is everyday casual Friday? Find out before you invest in your new pieces.

After you've done some research, now we begin. Finding an outfit that's work professional, but still shows your personal style can be a challenge. You definitely don't want to look like just another crayon in the crayon box. So how can you spice up your work wear? We've come up with a few tips to look fab on the job.
