This week’s outfit comes to you from the amazing closet of my mother, proving that style can be mastered at any age. It is certainly fair to say that any style I have my mother helped me realize.

Deciphering the dress code can be hard. Especially, if you are new to office culture (or certain types of retail, sales, any customer service field really). Unless your job requires a uniform it can be difficult to understand just what is casual, business casual, or professional attire, and that’s before you throw office culture, dress down Friday’s or anything else into the mix.
