I’m not trying to be mean, but if you’re wearing suits that are ill fitting and with shoulder pads, it’s time to donate those to the Goodwill.
An alternative to the 80′s power suit is a dress with a fitted blazer over it.
If you find the right style for your figure, dresses are very flattering. Plus, it makes for such an easy outfit. No worrying about matching top and bottom- it’s done for you!
My problem with dresses is that I used to think they were only for special occasions (evening events). Not any more!
This is one of my favorite dresses. The fabric is soft, warm and incredibly comfortable. Plus, I’m always a fan of stripes and I love the long sleeves.
To make it more work appropriate, I’ve added a grey flannel blazer that ties at the waist (which helps define my shape). Then, to give the entire outfit a burst of color (and in a nod to spring, which I hope is on it’s way), I’ve added this bright Stella and Dot necklace.

I now look professional, put together and stylish. Now, off to work!
