Black pants, a white top, everyone has them in their closet, right? It’s the easy go-to for event organizers to ask staff to wear for their events – easy, convenient and identifiable.
Me, I am not really a fan. Don’t get me wrong, I totally get it and have certainly made this the staff uniform for events I have organized in the past. But I have always had a hard time wearing the combo. Maybe it’s the lack of individual personality I feel when I wear it or maybe it just reminds me to much of those days of waiting tables and bartending. Or maybe it is just my inner rebel who always hated uniforms (must come from those early days of school uniforms).
Recently, I have worked a couple of different events where I have been asked to wear this exact combo and in both cases I have found myself dreading getting dressed for the occasion. How can I create a combination I feel good about – professional and pulled together – while still respecting the uniform and staying within the guidelines? I felt it was a good time to pull together some inspiration outfits to help me pull it off. Thanks Polyvore for helping me pull together this inspiration board.
