Graveyard Shift


Working in the call center industry means you need to deal not only with the pressure of taking calls and adopting a nocturnal lifestyle, but also with the daily struggle of finding the right outfit to wear night after night. Working at night doesn't mean you can wear anything you want ( Oh how I wish it was that easy ), and most companies have guidelines or dress codes to follow. And so today, let's discuss fashion for people working at graveyard shift!




In any line of work or business you're in, you need to consider yourself a professional. So you need to appear as presentable as possible without compromising comfort. Working at night means you need to battle with the cold air conditioning system, and the hot and usual metro temperature after work. Your outfit needs to be versatile. You wouldn't want to catch yourself wearing snow gear mid day in Manila, right?



First, choose colors that you can easily pair with your wardrobe staples. This is vital to maximize your mix and match powers. Not all of us can afford to wear different clothes each day. So make everything look new with a simple mix and match done right. Next is proper layering. Since we are working in a cold office environment, a jacket or anything similar is a must. This will enable you to remove your top garment and still look as glamorous.




Who said chinos are only for men? For me it's one of the most versatile pair of pants to have this season. Aiming for a corporate look? Then throw in a classy blazer. You can never go wrong with earthly colors. Here I'm wearing my mustard yellow chinos, paired with a blank top and covered by a basic blazer. Throw in some accessories and you're good to go. Good thing about this outfit is that you can easily remove the blazer if the weather becomes too hot for you to handle.




Got this new bag from Parisian. I'm a sucker for studded accessories. Call it love at first sight. And I know I've got to have it right then and there. And of course, my favorite watch! I just love this accessory for it matches virtually everything I have in my closet.


Now let's talk about men's wear. Layering is one of his favorite style. Done right, it can let you wear the same clothes without being noticed. Talk about the likes of David Beckham and Kanye West. Here he's wearing a plaid button down shirt, topped with a navy blue trimmed sweater, over a pair of chocolate chinos. His outfit was well complemented by those red boots. The same boots he wore last Bloggers United 5.





He just love G Shock. Here he got a very functional one - packed with altimeter, barometer and thermometer.


His and Hers shoes. Don't you just love it guys? :)


What do you think about our outfit?  Hope you guys like it.
Have a happy weekend. :)

xoxo,
KC
