For those of you that have been following my blog for awhile, you know that I have a PR background of 11+ years. With a PR career, however, comes an ENDLESS wardrobe of variations on the LBO, or the “Little Black Outfit”. It’s a necessity in PR – whether you are working backstage at NY Fashion Week, doubling as a doorman at media-check-in at a store launch, or literally too exhausted to think about matching, all black is the quintessential PR Girl uniform.
Sounds kind of boring, right? As a life-long lover of fashion, and as someone who is quite the opposite of a wallflower, I’ve always had a hard time with the all-black-everything rule. Over the years, I’ve made it my mission to constantly seek out novelty ‘noir’ styles that teeter on the dramatic — think special sleeves, embellishments, and unique detailing. Hey, it’s still playing by the rules.
I have to admit, I ALMOST ordered the pink version of this ROMWE
sweater. As a digital influencer, I knew the pink shade would look better on the ‘gram, (not to mention, match my Instagram feed!) but I knew that at the end of the day, I wouldn’t wear it half as much as I would wear the black version. The black version arrived and I’ve already worn it 10 different times, in 10 different ways, and I’ve gotten compliments every.single.time (yes, in-person compliments, not just on social media).
The best part? It’s on SUPER sale and is linked below. I’ve also linked some of my other favorite work-friendly black outfits below.
What is your unofficial work uniform? I’d love to hear from you in the comments section below! In the meantime, be sure to follow my daily style adventures on Instagram!
