How many outfits do you have reserved for work?

I have about 6-8 different outfits that are work appropriate and I work 20 hours a week.
A co-worker of mine works full time and has only 2-3 outfits.
Different folks for different folks.

I have at least 10-12 outfits for work . Maybe your co worker has children and gets no child support and that is why she cannot afford clothes cause she putting her kids in good clothes and shoes . I would offer her some clothes if she could not afford them .

She doesn't have kids.
She just chooses not to buy a lot of clothes. She just switches it up.She said she doesn't see the point of buying a bunch of clothes. I myself would get tired of wearing the same things.

As for me offering her clothes, I'm a couple sizes larger than her.

There are a lot of people that are not 'into' clothes as much as others. As long as she looks professional who cares?

And clean...hopefully she frequents launders/dry cleans the clothing. Clothing can get soiled and frankly smelly if worn too frequently.

I'm not even all that "into" clothes myself. Half the time when I go shopping I can't find anything I like.
I would just think for practical reasons (like not having to do laundry every other day) you would want to have more than one outfit for work.

I never really counted, I have a closet full of stuff that I don't like, every morning is sheer panic trying to figure out what to wear.

I love looking at Cosmo, or other magazines, that have "clothes for the working woman". I am like, RIGHT!, only if they work as call girls. Last month, I saw a "Cosmo Career Woman" she was wearing a suit, with a short skirt (mini), jacket, and a lace camisole under that. Maybe for a date? But way too sexy for work.

What do you think is appropriate for women to wear to work?

A good knee-length skirt is good with a top that covers the cleavage.
This just works for my job since I work in a library. We can't have revealing tops because we interact with the public and when we're bending over shelving books, we don't want our cleavage showing.

Today I wore a black skirt with a turquoise polo. At my job we're somewhat casual but I also like to go above and beyond sometimes. Nothing wrong with being more professional.

I know exactly what you mean by looking at the Cosmo magazines and thinking, "There is no way in I can wear this to work."

My mom always stressed having a number of outfits for work just so you aren't always wearing the same thing. I guess it's stuck with me.

How does she do it?

I have 2 full walk-in closets worth...and now I'm trying to figure out which one of us isn't normal (probably me)
