Most of us have an outfit for work and one for play but it’s a straint on your closet and your budget. This is the first in a 3 part series showing you how to alter your play clothes for work.

I have seen the working goth blogs and are amazed at the souless black outfits..no studs? no symbol of hatred fir humanity? Besides casual fridays, there are ways to bring alternative clothes to the office and here’s how.
DITCH HOT TOPIC
Okay, I know where else are you going to get torn shirts, witchy prints and Gryffindor gear? The hunt is on. The fact is that most stores now carry alternative looks that are so paired down they are more appropriate for work. We went to H&M online and typed in studs and we got several looks. We picked the one below.
Add a pleather skirt and a cool black denim or leather jacket and your work ready.
PAY ATTENTION TO LENGTH
Yeah, we love our short skirts and pencils skirts but the length could be the difference between work and play. The trick get a skirt the falls just above the knee. Pair it with a long skirt so it appears shorter for play and tuck in your shirt for work so it appears longer. Notice the long boots on both looks.
I know this sounds odd but I am not talking incorporating trends in your wardrobe but to look for trends within your aesthetic. For example, hiking boots are big this fall meaning that low end stores will carry some version of the trend. This would be a great time to stock up. Another trend is leatherlike skirts.
