The little guide for the real Girl Boss

Oh es miércoles, voy a escoger el outfit mas aburrido que tengo e irme a trabajar, a puesto que pensaste eso esta mañana.

En mi país el código de vestimenta laboral es un poco restringido y especialmente aburrido. Mientras más feo y soso, irónicamente resulta ser elegante y aceptable. En general las chicas se ven limitadas a outfits de conjunto mal entallado de chaqueta, pantalón o falda, camisas mangas largas y ya esta…¿qué triste no?

Algunas empresas no toman en cuenta ni el clima, ni nuestra edad para establecer estas normas de formalidad pasadísimas de moda. Si no son muy estrictos con estas, a veces pensamos que solo ciertas piezas son las aceptables e ideales, porque es lo que estamos acostumbrados a ver.

Regularmente pasamos unas 8 horas en el trabajo y para mi, además de aportar nuestro intelecto, imagen y presencia en nuestro ambiente laboral, también es importante que nos sintamos bien y cómodas desempeñando cual labor sea. Y ya que el animo influye en todo lo que hacemos, que podamos sonreír cada vez que veamos el reflejo de un lindo outfit, la jornada de trabajo seria muchísimo mejor, ¿no creen?

He trabajado en ambientes creativos, con el mínimo de restricciones en cuanto a vestuario. En buen dominicano, me pongo lo que me da la gana. ¿Suerte? sí, y nunca ha afectado lo que mis superiores esperan de mi como empleada. Creo que si me impusieran un uniforme, siempre buscaría detalles para hacer la diferencia con mi vestimenta del día a día.

Entonces, como no todo es teoría y bla bla bla, he estado pensando en distintas formas de mantener la esencia formal que se debe mantener en ciertos ambientes laborales, pero que a la vez lo jovial, moderno e interesante este presente. Piezas con más estructura, cortes asimétricos o tejidos inesperados son algunas de las simples ideas que me vienen a la cabeza.

No pretendo que todo cambie de la noche a la mañana, pero aquí les dejo algunas de las sugerencias que yo usaría para cambiar un poco esos estereotipos bastante obsoletos (que al final no aportan nada al desempeño que tengamos en nuestra jornada laboral). En los comentarios, me gustaría leer sus opiniones.

Oh it’s Wednesday, I’m going to choose the most boring outfit I have and go to work, maybe you have this  thought this morning.

In my country the work dress code is a bit limited and especially boring. The more ugly and dull, ironically it turns out to be elegant and acceptable. In general girls are limited to wear set of jacket, pants or skirt, poorly tailored with long sleeves shirts and that’s it… sad ha?

Some companies don’t take into consideration the weather or our age to establish these out fashion formality rules. If they are not very strict with these, sometimes we just think in certain pieces are the acceptable and ideal, because it is what we are used to see.

We spend about 8 hours at work and for me, in addition to contributing with our intellect, image and presence in our work environment, it is also important that we feel good and comfortable. The mood influences everything we do, that we can smile every time we see the reflection of a nice outfit, the workday would be much better, don’t you think?

I have worked in creative environments, with minimal restrictions on clothing. As a Dominican will say “me pongo lo que me da la gana” that means I can wear what ever I want. Lucky? Yes, but the funny thing is this has never affected what my superiors expect of me as an employee. I believe that if some day I need to wear an uniform, I would always look for details to make the difference with my day-to-day work dress code.

So, theory sound good and it’s time to make it work. I have been thinking of different ways of maintain the formal image that require certain working environments, keeping the modern, jovial and interesting that we all want to have at work. Pieces with more structure, asymmetric cuts or unexpected fabrics are some of the simple ideas that come to mind.

I don’t pretend everything changes overnight, but here I leave this little guide for the real Girl Boss with some suggestions I would wear to change a bit those stereotypes (that in the end don’t contribute anything) and definitely will change the way you see your working outfit. In the comments, I would like to read your opinions.
