So I recently nabbed a new job, and am looking for understated pieces to use as work uniform, as otherwise I'll look too much like an airline stewardess, tee.
I am looking for black, clean-cut, no shirring, preferably high-waisted skirts. Minor edge lace and ruffles okay, but think of it as management lolita - it's gotta be versatile!
Unfortunately I can't have anything wooly or velvety - it has to be a form of cotton blend/broadcloth or something that looks like it. Hence I'm looking for stuff on-par or close to brand quality (e.g. seamstress work), since it's a workplace that won't tolerate visibly wrinkly or skimpy-looking material.
A couple examples for styling:
I have a 25" waist, so anything bigger needs to be able to be cinched smaller without looking baggy. I can get away with a bouyant skirt, but not a scrunchy hem. :)
Thanks ahead of time!
