Dressing for work

If you work in a 'smart-casual' environment (ie suits or business dress not required, but staff still expected to be well-presented) do you try to wear something different every day? Or do you wear the same outfit with a fresh top every day, much as you would a suit or uniform? Or something in-between?

I wear something different every day. Otherwise, I'd get very bored.

I work from home these days and I really miss my office clothes <sob>. When I did have to get out of my pjs look presentable, I usually rotated a few different pieces through the week but tried not to wear the same things 2 days in a row, you know kind of like those "8 items, 15 looks" type of boards on Pinterest.

Different things, though I rotate about 3 dresses, 3 skirts and 4 or 5 tops so not a massive variation. Always skirts or dresses rather than trousers as i find them more comfortable and suit me better than trousers, which feel boring to me!

I try to wear something different every day (in practice have a roster of work skirts/ trousers/ tops but do swap them around, like StrikesMatches says and probably most people for that matter) but I work in the media and there are some very well-dressed women on my floor. It's part of the fun to wear something that gets a compliment from one of the office fashionistas IYSWIM (realise this makes my workplace sound unbearably superficial, it really isn't).

Different things everyday.

Skinny/skin trousers with blouses and boots

Shift dresses with Blazers, ankle boots

Buttoned up shorts worn under crew neck sweaters with a tube skirt.
