Any excuse to look good is a great one. An outfit for an interview because you have to feel good as well as look the part. Maybe an outfit for your first day at work because you have to make a good first impression. Maybe an outfit for your second day too because you made such a good first impression that your new colleagues asked you out for a drink. You get the drift.
Work clothes can be difficult to perfect since you have to find that balance between professional and not Friday night hoochie! How short does that skirt have to be until it becomes a little too inappropriate for the work place? Most people struggle with these dilemmas so much that the only fail-safe becomes the trouser and shirt.
‘The smart trouser and shirt?’ I hear you scoff. Yes! The trouser and shirt comes to the rescue when that jersey pencil skirt has shrunk in the wash and will now become your new Friday night go to piece. But seriously, the trouser and shirt doesn’t have to be boring when you can add a pop of colour to it like in the images above. Especially in the summer because summer is a great excuse for everything, so just do it!

You will have seen Mariah Carey’s music videos over the years and you might have noticed the invisible wind that follows her indoors and outdoors which gives her hair this instant volume. I read somewhere that she has a chewing gum disposal assistant, well I won’t be surprised if she also has a hair fan carrier.
This young lady does not need a hair fan carrier because it has been so windy lately. Mariah might even want to shoot her videos here. But the wind was timed perfectly when this shot was taken. Also she wears the perfect combination of dark lipstick, oversized coat and sunglasses that makes her look so Hollywood but weather appropriate. From head to toe, this look is on point!

I don’t ever remember looking this great while studying for exams.
To be honest I barely left the room during my finals and the last thing we thought about at 4 a.m. while we took turns to sleep for 20 minutes then wake the other up so as not to oversleep, was looking presentable.
But these ladies have achieved what I couldn’t. They make casual in an I woke up like this kinda way look possible.
Respect to these ladies! For looking great in stressful moments!
This gentleman was the sweetest. It’s refreshing when people are surprised that other people think that they dress so well.
Let’s talk about the glasses. When 1920s aviator goggles and stunna shades met each other, this is what it produced.
The glasses are on the next level of coolsome*. And shame we can’t get them unless we are booked on the next flight to Dubai.
*Coolsome should be a new word, don’t you think?
