I am sure there are lots of people like me that struggle when it comes to work appropriate outfits. I actually never know what to wear to work. I don't want to be too formal but I don't want to be too laid back also. So I usually pick up the middle road and wear a nice pair of formal pants, some blazer or coat and then a simple t-shirt. Footwear is another battle but I find that Stan Smith sneakers are really a good option to that kind of looks. I love to wear them with formal pants because they don't look too sporty, do you see where I am coming from? Nice flat sole and simple, clean upper makes all the difference.
