I think you all know what I mean by "when IT attacks".
Yes ladies, I'm talking about when our period decides to fall upon a work day.
There are many women out there who, when on their period, struggle when deciding what to wear to work. We all want dress comfortably when it's the time of the month, well all want to just sit home, relax and wait for the pain to go away. But no, you need to get those bills and debts paid off.
These tips that I'm about to share with you, some I've personally tried out and the rest I've seen on others.
Here are my simple tips on how to dress for work during your time of the month:
What to do
- Take a pain killer
- Bring extras (pads, undies and clothes)
On to what to actually wear
- Pants - Keep it loose and flowy. We don't want any pad outlines showing do we?
Stick to dark colors - Just incase something slips and you end up with a stain, it won't be that noticeable on the way to the bathroom.
(wide-leg pants, crop trousers, peg trousers, culottes)
- Top - again, keep it loose and/or flowy. Go wild with the colors.
(blouse, halter tops (don't forget a cardigan), peplum blouse, kimono top)
- Dresses or Skirts - If you're the kind who enjoys wearing dresses or skirts and wouldn't mind wearing them to work when you're on the time of the month, go ahead and do so. Just make sure that your panty line or pad isn't visible to the public!
Again, stick to dark colors
(peplum dresses/skirts, waffle dresses, skater dresses, full skirt dresses, shift dresses)
- Shoes - Keep them comfy and as low as possible. If you're a stiletto girl, go ahead and bring out that stiletto on your second or third day, for now, stick to ballet flats or a kitten heel.
(oxfords heels/flats, ballet flats, kitten heels, 2"- 2 1/2" heels)
These are all just very basic comfortable workwear ideas. Don't forget to add your own little spice and flare to the outfit.
