Fancy Pants

It's one thing trying to get dressed for work every morning, but it's quite another trying to get dressed for an interview. At a fashion magazine at that.

What you want is to come off all cool and casual, in a 'you're so fabulous you whipped your outfit together in five minutes while simultaneously downing your morning coffee and applying a lick of mascara' kind of way.

But the truth is you stand in front of the mirror for 45 minutes contemplating dress or skirt, brown chunky heels or black pumps. Then you start to worry you'll look like a try hard - mainly because you are trying too hard.

The answer? Pants. Spring is all about the pants. The skinny, the ankle-cropped, the straight leg, the high-waisted. Whatever, they all work.

Throw on with a black or navy tee, add an accessory du jour (chunky or embellished, who knows it changes every five minutes) or oversized blazer and voila - instant chic, without the going insane part.
