It’s not always easy working in an office environment when your preferred outfits lean towards the boho side. I am often challenged via email to make Anthropologie and Free People work for work — and today, it’s challenge accepted for Free People! (I recently did an Anthropologie work post here, and will do another one soon!)
Of course, nearly nothing at Free People will work for conservative office environments. I think that’s pretty much a given with their often low-cut, generously embellished and revealing leanings. However, if you’re in the artistic or creative fields, or have a loose office dress code, Free People can absolutely be worn to your office.
Take the Miranda Midi Dress ($148) above. It would be perfect for a photographer, or a designer of any kind, or someone who works in a creative office. You can easily style it with pumps or flats if tall boots aren’t your thing, and such a pretty print needs hardly any accessories.
Inside, more work ideas for the boho (and its cross-section of prep) in all of us…
For the creative girl
Let’s say you work in the publishing industry, or for a home or clothing designer, as an artist or perhaps in some role that allows lots of creative expression in your work looks. (A friend of mine who works for a huge flea market immediately comes to mind.) Work dress is as much about fun for you as it is about inspiring your day-to-day creativity.
Here are some ideas for making Free People items work-ready.
For the modern girl
City life seems to call for a uniform of black, white and grey, but that doesn’t mean your workwear has to be boring! Here are some ideas from Free People that land on the more preppy side..
