Style 911: Help Me Find Work-Appropriate Shorts!

Lovely reader Elise left the following question on our Facebook page:

Work It: 10 Cute Dresses For Conservative Offices

It can be tough to find appropriate clothing for a conservative office environment, especially during spring and summer, when sleeves disappear and hemlines rise dramatically. I went in search of work-ready dresses with sleeves, modest necklines, and hems that hit at the knee or below.

Style 911: What Should I Wear To My Event Planning Job?

“My job is a bit unusual because I work in a large sports bar/ lounge at night. I handle all of the events in the space from birthdays, game watches, corporate happy hours and pretty much anything under the sun. I find myself in a wardrobe dilemma!! My hours are so random just like the events and I never know what to wear. The guys that work here just get to wear jeans and our bar t-shirts or sometimes they will wear button ups and jeans. I feel like I have to be dressed a little nicer because you never know when someone will drop by and want to plan a huge event! The other thing that makes it tricky is that I am often on my feet for long periods of time and we have 3 levels so heels aren’t the right footwear at all! Any advice?”

As someone who used to DJ a bunch, and has spent my fair share of time in and around bars, I feel your foot pain. There’s always flats, definitely. But have you considered a platform wedge? They’re actually a lot more comfortable than you might think — because having a platform means you’re not walking on as much of a heel as it first appears.

As for what to wear? Looking professional in a bar scene can be a challenge, but we think dark or black denim, or casual, comfortable dresses should do the trick. Check out our picks after the jump!
