We know the scenario. You are working a straight-laced 9-to-5 job complete with the boring uniform of business slacks and oxford shirts. Like most companies, your office has a “Casual Friday” dress code.
For most people, that’s jeans, a pretty blouse, and maybe some practical, but fun flats. There’s nothing necessarily “wrong” with that outfit. But it definitely doesn’t help you unleash your inner Barbz.
Take a note from [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Nicki Minaj[/lastfm]’s textbook weird, yet comfortable outfits.
She looks polished, but not preppy and she definitely adds her Pink Friday flair to just about everything she wears.
Minaj doesn’t dress down. She dresses like a “Barbie Girl.”
Barbie necklace, blazer, wild leggings, baby blue patent platform pumps, perfectly coiffed hair; Nicki Minaj is covered up in all the right places and still makes a statement.
The most pivotal piece that Minaj is wearing is her quintessential Barbie necklace. You can find knock-offs of her costume jewelry piece all over the internet (including Ebay), but this one from Soul Jewelry for $159.95 is pretty spot on and less bulky than Minaj’s version. Probably a better bet for the workplace.
We love Minaj’s boyfriend blazer with it’s jaunty rolled up sleeves and her simple, classy white t-shirt. A blazer might not seem practical for summer, but this dark khaki linen version from ASOS will wick away moisture and heat while giving your outfit a pulled-together elegance.
People always say leggings shouldn’t double as pants, but we think they are looking at leggings as work-out wear rather than the same amount of booty-covering material as a normal pair of pants. Don’t be afraid of taking a walk on the wild side and rocking your curves with these multi-colored Insight leggings at Pretty Pennie.
You might think your feet need a break from heels, but what they really need a break from are boring heels. These baby blue platform pumps by Gabriella Rocha at Zappos are hot way to break up the monotony you usually wear on your feet.
Top all this off with hot pink nails and lips. You can get hot pink lipstick anywhere, but if you are looking Amazon has a gorgeous, long-lasting lipstick called Lime Crime Centrifuschia Opaque Hot Pink Lipstick.
