Something that a majority of people might not mention about working in the fashion industry, well if you’re on the creative side, it’s a lot of schlepping around bags, trunks of clothing, heavy lifting and you’re running around on your feet all day. My “work” wear is pretty different than the outfits I post on the blog, or even on Instagram, so I thought it might be interesting to do a different approach to my SAK outfit posts today and show you what I typically wear while styling a photoshoot or a client.
Comfort is key, and as much as I would love to wear cute booties or lots of layers, it’s just unrealistic. I have learned to incorporate comfy pieces, such as graphic tees, jeans and sneakers into my everyday wear, but I’m also try to make sure they are polished and functional.
Photoshoots are long days—up to 12 hours on your feet, and sneakers are my saving grace. I normally opt for stretchy jeans or a loose dress that I can easily move around in to dress the model, pack/unpack product and that I don’t mind sitting on the ground in (if needed). I normally wear a t-shirt and layer a light jacket or kimono because sometimes it’s cold, but once you’re running around, I love being able to un-layer. The final touch, is my styling kit. I just recently got my Kipling fanny pack and it’s been my styling bestie (see here). I always have a bag/styling kit with my essentials, such as pins, clamps, lint roller, etc. , and having the kit directly on me, is the easiest way to work.
So there you have it folks—my work dresscode is a graphic tee, jeans, sneakers and a styling kit. Hope you enjoyed today’s look and you can shop the items below! xo
