If I Had to Pick a Uniform: The LBD

There have been lots of articles written (here and here, for example) about highly productive and successful people wearing the same things every day, as a way to eliminate one more decision in their daily life.  Now, I’m not 100% on board with this theory, and not just because I’m a fashion blogger.  I find that the outfit I select, changes the outlook for the day, something I’ve covered before in this blog post about the secret emotional life of clothes.

However, if I had to pick an uniform for work life, it would be the little black dress.  It’s so simple and classic, but yet so many variations for the different flavors of life.  This dress is a perfect example, a causal black t-shirt dress, elevated by beautiful lace accents.  It’s soft and easy to wear – dress it up with some pumps and statement earrings; dress it down with a pair of black converse sneaker and a leather moto jacket; or wear it to work with a pair of studded leopard flats, I like styled here.

What would be your uniform?

      A little feminine, that I like to offset with a little edge, like the caged leopard flats and a leather moto jacket when it gets cooler!
