This year I’ve been working extremely hard on building my freelance writing business so I can stay home full time with my children. My efforts have resulted in many wonderful clients whom I adore, and landed me a couple regular jobs ghost writing in, of all things, the fashion industry. My daily jaunts into fashion have left me an expert on what necklines highlight your bust line, and which dress styles hide a little muffin top you’re not so keen to display. This is a sharp 180 from what I usually pull out of my closet for a long day of writing, so I thought it’d be fun to re-imagine my wardrobe as actual fashion, and give you my top wardrobe choices for busy writers everywhere. In full fashion voice, of course.
Unleash your inner coffee lover with bathrobe, tousled hair, and signature half-finished mug.
Bleary eyes and long nights result in tired writers who don’t want to get up in the morning. Show the world your affronted-at-just-being-alive look with this signature collection from Writers Fashion Weekly.
Featuring moody dark eyes and a slightly stumbling gait, this ensemble clearly states, “Leave me the f*** alone” as you shuffle your way to the coffee station for a second round of the good stuff.
Revolutionize your writing wardrobe with comfy pants and a baggy t-shirt
Evoke your sense of pleasure with a comfort waistband that lets it all hang out. Featuring a baggy t-shirt that frees you from the constraints of excess clothing. Pair this with a messy ponytail for a carefree style perfect for writing in pure, unadulterated comfort.
Take a walk on the wild side with a Chihuahua print onesie you never changed out of.
Nothing says, “You stayed up writing super late last night,” quite like a set of pink, cutsie pajamas. Added bonus if you have to drop the kids off at school while you are wearing them, or you aren’t female.
Bring a new meaning to the term “Casual fridays” by ditching those pants altogether.
Who needs clothes when you work alone? Let loose with a care free and casual shirt and panty set with nothing else at all.
Astonish those future editors with an exquisite pair of pants that fit, sophisticated button up shirt, and possibly even lip gloss.
Some days it just can’t be avoided. A person important to your writing wants to meet face to face, and there are laws specifically written against some of your favorite looks being worn (or not worn?) in public. For these days look sharp in “real pants,” a presentable shirt, and maybe some makeup. Maaaaaybe.
