I work outdoors so I wear jeans and tank tops quite often. I don’t have a defined style but I don’t consider myself one of those people who has bad taste or never tries to look nice. Usually when I dress up I wear cowboy boots, whether it’s with a dress or nicer jeans.

I work in an office, so I wear business professional and business casual on most days. To prevent my looks from being too “boring,” I always have a big jewelry statement piece from Charming Charlie or some other costume jewelry store. For instance, today I’m wearing this huge bracelet that I fell in love with at CC:

@Syzygy88:  I used to live in an area of the US that was typically warm year round, but now where I live has 4 defined seasons– so my style has evolved a little. I like comfortable, classic but also trendy. I do not like overly preppy, sorority girl inspired clothes ( except pearls!)– but I do like plaids and tailored looks.

 

Here are few things I have pinned and styles I like to wear. I am pretty tall for a woman (5’8) and pretty long in the arms and legs region– so some of the cutesy crop tops and short dresses don’t work as well for me!

I’m pretty classic in how I dress.  I work in a very conservative environment, so I wear a lot of suits, dresses, skirts (with hose, it’s required by our dress code), etc.  

I buy good quality base pieces in neutrals.  I readily spend more on these items.  I wear them for years and years.  All of my suits, skirts, blouses, blazers, sheath dresses, wrap dresses fall into this category.

I play with accessories for colour (shoes, booties, purses, scarves, etc.) And cardigans, blouses, etc. I’ll buy more trendy and colourful pieces.  These will often only last a season or 2 before I donate them.  I don’t spend nearly as much on these pieces (the exception is cashmere sweaters/cardigans.  Gah. I love cashmere.) 

For weekend wear I’m a skinny jeans (almost always a dark wash) and a sweater kind of girl.  And boots.  I loooooove boots.  I have way, way too many pairs.  

My work wear is very tailored.  You won’t see me in anything really gauzy or voluminous.  Weekend wear is less tailored.  I love cowl necks in particular and it sems like all my weekend sweaters are cowls!

My goal is, as much as possible, to never dress in such a way that I will be able to instantly date a photo of me in that outfit to a specific 2-3 year period.  I also am very committed to dressing my age and I dislike anything that is too youthful.  Now that I have lost some weight and gained a decent bank balance, I have been acquiring a wardrobe, bit by bit, that satisfies the vision I have always had.  In clothes I dislike all prints–animal prints in particular are anathema for me–and most bold colors (except red).  I permit myself bold colors in shoes, but the shoes must have classic shapes.  Everything must be of superior quality, properly tailored, and functional.  No jeans.  No attention-drawing logos of any sort on anything, especially purses and bags.  All jewelry must be real.

I like to describe my style as “prepster.” A mix between hipster and preppy. You’ll always find me with skinny jeans, some sort of cardigan, a statement necklace, and usually pearl earrings. I’m always cold no matter where I go, so I always need a cardigan!

@Syzygy88: I’m a teacher and have to dress up daily. I would define my style as simple: clean lines, modern/fitted cuts, neutrals with occasional pops of color. 

I don’t like trendy clothes. You know, ill-fitting tops, random cut outs… no thanks!

(Though I do admit, I love skinny jeans tucked into a nice pair of boots or leggings under a tunic for lounging around!)

My taste is classic, elegant, and classy. Think J Crew. I like some trendy pieces, but only if they’re flattering and “me.”

I wear fairly preppy, classic clothing, but I lovelovelove bright colors and prints. I also only wear earrings and rings–I have enough going on with my colors and patterns that I don’t want jewelry to compete.

Right now I’m wearing slim-fitting black pants tucked into cognac faux-leather riding boots (I try to avoid real leather), a pink-and-blue striped silk blouse, and a tan Ant Taylor cardigan with flecks of metallic. For jewelry, I’m wearing my engagement ring and sparkly gold earrings.

My normal winter coat is fuchsia, but it was warmer today, so my lighter coat is a black and gray houndstooth-ish pattern with a ruffled collar.

I wear whatever I’m in the mood for, so my style varies a LOT.

I love clothes!! Always have, always will… they will always be sore spot for my bank account.
I’d say my style is classic, chic (especially my work style), slightly preppy. I usually keep up with trends, but don’t go overboard. There a certain trends that I just won’t bother trying, but I like to see how I can incorporate new trends to suit me.

My go to weekend outfit for a casual pub night is a blazer, cute top usually in a print or bold color, black or dark denim jeans and tall riding boots.

My style crushes are Kate Middleton, Marion Cotillard and Mila Kunis

I spend most of my time in business clothes but I try to stay away from just black suits so I like to wear something of a statement to jazz it up. Something as simple as a statement pair of heals with a black suit, or a bright pair of smart trousers or a bright jacket but keep everything else black/white

I have no issue spending more than a bit on clothes, I work in a world where appearance matters and you are judged. I find myself power dressing but still want to look feminine.

Rest of the time – skinny jeans, daps or boots and a T-shirt.

@Syzygy88:  You can pretty much just flip through a J Crew magazine… that’s my style, haha. Lots of skinny jeans, cardigans, blazers, collared blouses, etc. But honestly, on a day to day basis (like to class), I wear skinny jeans, a t-shirt an flip flops. every single day. if I had the time, patience and money, I’d dress like what I mentioned first.
