Fashion, Outfits

Working it!

Hi everyone! If you follow me on Instagram, you already know that I have transitioned from academia to industry. While academia had a more casual work attire (sweatpants and hoodies at times), industry requires a more professional getup. Unlike a corporate world, my work does not require me to wear suits and blazers everyday. However, I still like to look fashionably professional at all times, or maybe that’s just my excuse to buy some more fancy clothes!

I wanted something crisp and clean for my look and, of course, I went with all white. I love the flow of this boot-cut trousers and the fit of the white blazer. I went minimal accessories. Just a classic watch and some earrings. Heels completed the look.

Speaking of sunglasses, if you’re like me and want to try new shades in different shapes and designs before committing to buy them, ditto is just the place. You can rent fabulous designer sunglasses, for only $24/month. Right now if you use the code ‘THECHICRESEARCH’, you get your first month free!! I am wearing these gorgeous beauties from Prada, which I received from ditto!

What do you think of this look? Let me know if you want some more similar wear-to-work looks in future!
