Hello Everybody! This week I was on a business trip to see a corporate partner in Los Angeles and observed what corporate fashion looks like in southern California. One thing being for sure, although this area can get pretty chic and dressed up at night time, it seams the office hours are more casual than a German corporation would probably ever experience these days.
A simple day dress, sunnies and heels – no problem. The sun is shining non-stop anyways, even in late November, and you will never ever walk anywhere or even take public transportation meaning wearing heels is practically great all day.
The great thing about this type of dress style is, it also works well in flats. You already know my Kennel & Schmenger bright enamel shoes – I wear them day and night time all around the year.
For some jobs, this dress style might seem a bit short, and you are right, but here in SoCal it feels fine to me. Paired with light black tights (15 den) I really like it. I’ve heard from my New Yorker friend, that American girls don’t really ever wear tights and I replied: “you girls must have awesome legs and never freeze!”. I really can suggest them as they shape your legs in a beneficial way. Unless you are training in the gym multiple times a week and are blessed with well trained legs and skin, tights will become your best dressing option making you look better.
Enjoy being pretty cool corporate!
