Work Week Chic: Lawyer Linkup





Today I'm excited to be teaming up with four other smart and fashionable bloggers who also happen to be lawyers to bring you some work outfit inspiration!

As a young lawyer I often get asked, "Is law school worth it?", "What can I do with a law degree?", and of course "Is being a lawyer just like Law and Order?". One of the first lessons you learn in law school is that the answer to pretty much everything is "it depends". Lawyers come in all shapes and forms. There are so many different types of law that one can practice in as well as non-traditional routes that utilize law degrees.  Seeing all these lady lawyers and their work outfits truly emphasizes the versatility of law.

The blazer is probably the one item of clothing that comes to mind when you think of a lawyer. It's a power piece. Do I wear a blazer everyday to work? Absolutely not. But on days that I go to court, have meetings, or just want to look a little more polished the blazer is my go-to. While I was clerking during law school I learned a very valuable tip from a young lawyer I was working under. She told me to always have a jacket on outside of the office. A jacket is a symbol of power and respect. Unfortunately, as a young (woman) lawyer, far too often I get overlooked as a secretary or other staff member. However, when I wear a jacket or blazer it is much less likely to happen. Obviously, a blazer can be incorporated to almost every work scene, not just law, for a professional and stylish look.




What's your favorite way to wear a blazer?

  11. I love your look :) I like all your picks because they work for me. The other Brittany for example, I love her style and she has the cutest outfits, but my job is just so much more conservative than that. I can't get away with any of the short dresses or brightly colored things she wears. But pants and a cute blazer? I can do that!

  16. I'm in love with your outfit head to toe. I'm in the market for some nice dress pants and I like the fit of yours. I've lost about 10-20 lbs and everything looks loose and sloppy lately.

  17. My favorite way to rock a blazer may not be the most work appropriate actually. I love it with a vintage band tee, distressed denim, and some kind of peep toe black heels that fit the outfit. I wish my marketing job let me wear stuff like that - oh well maybe the next one. For now I can just rock it on the weekends.

  19. Love that blazer! I'm ashamed to say I don't even own one but I totally should. :)

  20. I love that blazer! I found one a few years ago at Lands End that is a bit more casual, but still looks nice for the office and I have since acquired it in at least 4 colors. Plus, blazers are such a good way to get a little more wear out of sleeveless dresses through the early fall, all while making you look more polished!
