Can I wear these at work in a concervative inviroment and I'm at a top position. I mean -aren't the pants too wide /almost like skirt/ so in a way estravagant?

aris, IMO it's the shirt that's questionable b/c it's visible above the table/desk & might be distracting. I can see a guy (or gal, let's be equal opportunity here ) not getting it & sitting there thinking, "What is wrong with that shirt???" To me the pants seem OK, but I haven't seen them on ... I like my skirts fairly long, and some are close to the floor if I don't have them hemmed ... you could view that as conservative And I think it's OK to sweep into the room a bit if you're in a top position

^ aris, I had one other thought after I posted this ... if you're ever in a position where you want to befuddle the not-very-sophisticated opposition this shirt would be perfect for that

i work in a corporate office but it's not very "corporate" in terms of the dress code. you get everything from full on suits to flip flops here (even tho you're not supposed to wear them). it's a mix of ppl wearing what they want and dressing for their position or the one they hope to get.

sometimes i dress up....which usually means a jersey dress a la DVF or a pencil skirt and fitted sweater/jersey top. soooo boring. i let my personality shine through my shoes.

A neutral pencil skirt, fitted blazer and a bold or printed blouse under the blazer for some added color. You could also do a nice solid color heel for some interest or even a nice pointed flat (if you don't want to be torturing your feet all day :p). Jewelry should be kept simple, so a single necklace, some diamond earrings, and a ring would be cute.

Please be my stylists: what to wear for a new job?
I will start in a new job in two weeks, and I just don`t know what to buy. It`s my first job after my graduation, I´m going to be in office, surrounded with lot of students, cause it`s school. So the enviroment is kinda casual, no need for really formal clothing. But I want to look good and clean, yet trendy and young. What do you recommend ?

I have this usual situation, my closets are full of clothes, and I have nothing to wear. Reason is I buy stupid things, nothing fits together, nothing really flatters me. Spring is coming, and now is my time to wear nicely.

I assume you`re under thirty, but not a teenager anymore. If that is so: a confortable and moderate heels (but, please, no flats), a skirt aorund the knee (a pencil style, but not so tight and confortable) or trousers with a fancy style (I mean, not a simple cut jeans or something), and a blouse that holds perspiration (I assume, also, it is a fullday job) and that is feminine. Balck and white would no be so good as a light brown/pastel dominant colors. No skarfs, small earrings, delicate rings and bracelets, nothing to strong or heavy.

Good look

I would wait till you start & see what others are wearing. Then see what you have in your closet that would work & use that as a starting point. For information about building a wardrobe, you might find our 4-5 piece French wardrobe thread helpful ...
