Why Are You Wearing Those Jeans You Don't Like… Again?

There’s nothing worse than those mornings where I walk down my apartment stairs, take a peek in the lobby mirror on my way out the door, and realize I feel far less than awesome in my outfit. Sometimes it’s because I haven’t done laundry in days (okay fine, a week), and others it’s because I’ve too eagerly invested in a trend that just isn’t right for me. Every once in a while, I’ll initially love how my outfit looks, only to later discover that my cute new high-waisted jeans are just a bit too high-waisted—cut to me pretending not to be super uncomfortable during meetings (you know what I mean) and a day spent not quite being able to get in the groove with my work.

On the other hand, when I love my outfit? I’m in a great mood, I feel confident and chatty, and I seem to always have a better day. While we sometimes dismiss fashion as frivolous, I think it’s worthwhile to recognize what happens when we feel fantastic in the clothes we wear to take on the world.

LOFT gets it, and in honor of their latest campaign to dress the way you feel—for real—I decided to ask the girls on my team if they feel the same way. It turns out that, like me, each of them has a go-to uniform that makes them feel their best too. From bold prints to perfectly tailored outerwear, this is what fashion editors love to wear (to the office and beyond), starting with me.
