So a while back, I began to collect more business-y pieces to add to my wardrobe. And I would end up wearing some combination of nice fitted shirts, blazers, skirts, dresses, tights and heels every day. Looking back, I realize this may have been a little much for school… And this is high school, mind you!

So I have compiled a list of general rules and guidelines to play down your more dressy items for everyday wear.

When wearing heels:

  • Only wear a skirt with a relaxed, very casual top (like a boyfriend  v-neck or sweatshirt)
  • Lighter denim is your friend!
  • Tunics and leggings are always great

When wearing a dress:

  • Don’t wear heels, unless it is an obviously casual cotton dress
  • Put a sweater over it instead of a coat or jacket
  • Go for the leggings or bare legs instead of tights

When wearing a fitted jacket/blazer:

  • Relaxed tops worn under and destroyed denim = amazing
  • Pick between skirt, dress or heels with this one
