Here I am with another Work Wear post for you. This time, I'm sharing with you some of the tips and tricks I've learned through the years I have commuted to work. A lot of you may not know that I don't always get to bring the car everywhere I go, so, contrary to popular belief, I'm like everyone else and I fight the daily battles of a commuter, too! From the long lines at the station, to seats on the bus that barely fit two people (more like 1 person and half a butt), to the endless walking/crossing/running.
As a style blogger, one of the biggest questions I get in line with this is: Do you really commute in those clothes?
To be brief, I do commute in these clothes but I make my outfit commute-friendly. I'll explain through the tips.
So here are some things you will find helpful when commuting in style (based on my experience):
#1: Don't. You don't need to and should not commute in style. It'll only attract attention and not the kind you'd want.
#2: Bring a cover-up of any kind. This will save you from freezing since some buses like JayRoss actually have a pretty decent airconditioning system. Haha! Also, this is useful when you're wearing sleeveless or something more revealing (which I hope you're not!). I usually bring lightweight ones I can easily put inside my bag once I get to the office or wherever the destination is.
#5: Wear something you can transform and put the accessories on hold. This is actually for those who really, really want to dress up. If you want to wear a dress, wear leggings, bring a jacket, etc. You can take off/change and add on clothes and accessories later on once you reach your destination.
Now that's settled, the next question would be: Why put in so much effort in dressing up when you're only going to the office?
Aside from dressing up being a hobby for me, I find that whenever I make the extra effort to tidy up, I get a good feeling about myself. This does not say that I think of myself any less when I'm not all-out fashyown, but feeling good about how you look adds to your confidence and the way you carry yourself. Try it!
