What Do You Put on to Paintings? 10 Readers Proportion Their Seems

What to Wear to Work Real Women

What are you dressed in to paintings at the present time? Such a lot has modified since we last asked this question that we idea it used to be day to test in. Right here, 10 girls — together with a farmer, therapist, and legal professional — percentage their paintings seems…

What to Wear to Work Real Women

Title: Naomi
Activity: Genetic counselor
Location: San Diego
Taste: “This Tweet — about ‘day to night’ outfits — is too real! I’ve realized that my actual requirement is the ability to switch from business casual to dog walking attire. My solution? Swap the blazer for a zip-up and swap my work shoes for sneakers. In less than a minute, I’m ready to walk the dog, catch up on podcasts, and pick up burritos for dinner.”

Title: Alyssa
Activity: Bar proprietor
Location: Boston
Taste: “I own Boston’s first and only Japanese sake bar called The Koji Club. I like to wear an Ilana Kohn jumpsuit because the big pockets can hold a 720 mL bottle of sake. Plus, I love that it’s from a small women-run business.”

Title: Emily
Activity: Farmer
Location: Seekonk, Massachussets
Taste: “I’m an herb and flower farmer, and I live and work on my small farm. My days consist of kneeling in the dirt to plant or weed; pushing heavy wheelbarrows of compost; harvesting fresh herbs, flowers and vegetables; and making bouquets or herbal medicines. Comfort and durability are the biggest factors when choosing my clothes every morning — especially in the summer, when I spend all day on my feet. I generally wear a version of this outfit: breezy shorts, a sleeveless top, my trusty Blundstones, a fanny pack, and a very large sun hat.”

What to Wear to Work Real Women

Title: Jitka
Activity: Psychotherapist and psychiatrist
Location: Prague
Taste: “I work at a crisis center and specialize in treating adults with ADHD, which is a neurodivergent condition I also have. I’ve settled into a work uniform of flowy dresses or skirts with a fun top. My clients are my greatest fashion inspiration, especially the teenagers and twenty-somethings! They’ve shown me how to style trends I see on the Internet — like crop tops and face gems — and make them wearable for real life.”

Title: Destinee
Activity: Venture supervisor in international folk members of the family
Location: Washington, D.C.
Taste: “The return to office has meant the (very slow) return of my sense of style. As the weather transitions from winter to spring, I’ve often worn a shirtdress with an Everlane trench and a scarf. Layers always make you look put together, IMO.”

What to Wear to Work Real Women

Title: Hannah
Activity: Registered clinical laborer
Location: Centralia, Illinois
Taste: “I’ve worn medical scrubs — scrub pants, scrub top, scrub jacket, and pink Nikes — every workday since 2009! The upside is that I don’t have to put any thought into my outfit Monday through Friday.”

What to Wear to Work Real Women

Title: Nikki
Activity: Lawyer
Location: Colorado
Taste: “Growing up, I told a friend I wanted a job where I could wear cool suits — and I got my wish. Since the pandemic, I’ve been working on my style and have identified three words to describe it: classic, textured, and edgy. Keeping those words in mind helps me put together looks for the courtroom and client meeting.”

What to Wear to Work Real Women

Title: Sophia
Activity: Product marketer at a tech corporate
Taste: “Working mostly from home, I find that dressing stylishly helps me be productive and feel like my best self. My typical uniform is jeans, a blouse or sweater, Darn Tough socks, and a necklace to keep the babies I lost close.”

Title: Hannah
Activity: Ph.D. candidate in Rhetoric and Writing
Location: Austin
Taste: “Like most grad students, I do a bit of everything: I teach a class for first-time teaching assistants, help run a lab, and write in the library. I also just built a solar-powered computer for my dissertation! My go-to is a flowy skirt and tee, and I get almost all my clothes pre-loved. It’s more affordable, and I love imagining the adventures they’ve have had before me. I recently started documenting my secondhand outfits on TikTok, and it’s been surprisingly joyful.”

Title: Kimmie
Activity: Keep-at-home mother
Location: Southern California
Taste: “I’m a stay-at-home mom to three boys — ages 8, 5, and 2 — so I describe my style as ‘mom-on-the-go.’ That means jeans, Birkenstocks or tennis shoes, a comfortable top, and a cardigan. Here, I’m walking with my kids in nature, and I love that you can see my two-year-old’s blurry head — he’s pretty attached to me and it warms my heart to see it.”
