Smart Casual

Here’s my smart casual outfit archive.

It’s weird writing about style on an ostensibly feminist blog about women in technical fields. Because, ideally, that shouldn’t matter, and people should be judging us on what we do rather than how we look.

But it does matter, and people don’t always do that.

You can’t look too young, or else people will assume you’re incompetent and immature. You can’t look too sexy, or people will assume you’re incompetent and, ahem. You can’t dress up too much, or people will assume you’re incompetent and compensating.

So, there’s gonna be posts about clothing on here. I did think it through, and I’m aware of the potential for hypocrisy, I swear. So I’m going to try to keep it relaxed and basic, but hey – even though it should be easy to put on clothes everyday, it’s not always all that easy.
