Happy Hump Day! This style post features one of my looks to Social Media Week Lagos which was between the 4th to the 8th of February, 2018. The first time I attended SMW was in 2017 so it was exciting to go back two years later.
Wearing a t-shirt to work is as easy as it is to wear a cami but why do we always forget to do this? Whenever I’m clueless on what to wear to work, an easy choice is a camisole and pants or a skirt, then I throw a jumper or jacket over it and I’m good to go.
It was a Thursday, I had an early work meeting and events to attend later and I didn’t plan my outfit the night before. There was no power in the morning per usual so pieces that didn’t need ironing were my go-to and that’s how this outfit was birthed. I don’t wear grey much but who knew it could look so nice with orange? The t-shirt is one of my personal tees from my collection and the skirt has been with me for some years.
If you are the type of person that separates work clothes form outing clothes, guess what? you don’t need to. You can wear your favourite t-shirt to work and still wear it during the weekend. The trick to wearing a t-shirt to work is making it look smart when it is styled. It is advisable to tuck it in to give it a corporate look but it is not necessary. You may also decide to wear a jacket or blazer over it but again, it is not necessary.
I had no plans to do a shoot or have my photos taken because I went out bare-faced like I do on most workdays but the outfit was too pretty not to be photographed. I’m definitely going to rummage through my closet for my plain t-shirts and style them up for workchic looks. I hope you’re inspired to do so too.
Do you wear t-shirts to work?
