5 Bossed Up Spring Transition Fashion Styles

5 Bossed Up Spring Transition Fashion Styles

There’s so much more to being a girl boss than your fashion style, but when you’re the one in charge, your style sets the tone. In this age of comfort casual, it can be difficult to style yourself with authority, while maintaining a sense of your brand. Still, you’re the boss, so can anyone really question your fashion choices?

Even though we’re a few weeks into spring, if you live in the Northern US, then you’ll know all about how rough spring transitions can be (I’m looking at you late spring snowstorms). It’s a fine balance between being warm in the cool spring air (or office air conditioning), but also cool enough when the sun starts heating up later in the day. Add in being both fashion chic and work appropriate, workplace attire can become a major challenge. What follows are 5 bossed up spring transition styles for all fashion personas. And no, you’re not seeing double, if you follow us on our Instagram (@alwaysuttori), you may have seen these looks already.

Fierce Girl Boss

Oh, the drama! When it’s time to dress to impress, a bell sleeved blouse is sure to add the drama. Keep it classic with a tartan print skirt, that matches the drama of the blouse, but also keeps it from going overboard.

Hip Boss

This look takes casual Fridays to happy hour. A little quirky and off beat, but still classy and professional, this girl boss is the one everyone wants to copy.

Rebel Boss

You can never go wrong with all black, but while black often gives us the connotation of classic and chic, it can also go cool and rebellious.

Updated Classic Boss

This is certainly a more uniform boss look, but not all of us can work in “creative” industries. Being a lawyer or accountant doesn’t mean that you can’t have some fun with your classic work uniform. Adding unexpected pops of color, or as in this case, the asymmetrical silhouette, adds a bit of fun to more traditional work expectations.

Next Level Girl Boss

The bold and adventurous boss is setting trends, but still knows how to bring her fun and flirty style to the workplace while keeping it chic and professional.

What Happened to the Posts?–Always Uttori Update

Hey Always Uttori Readers,

I wanted to apologize for the recent radio silence. As some of you may know, I am currently working on my MFA. Over the past two quarters, I have found it hard to balance blog/school life. You may have noticed that I’ve been more active on Instagram @alwaysuttori. I hope to be getting back to our regular scheduling of content soon, but wanted to let everyone know, the blog isn’t dead (although I can’t speak for my brain cells with the amount of school work I have)! With everything I’ve been learning at school, I’m more inspired than ever. I can’t wait to share some of the new articles and other blog content. Stay tuned. If you would like to be notified when a new post is out, feel free to join out newsletter or follow us on social media.

INTJ Playlist #21: Girl Boss

INTJ Playlist #21: Girl Boss

March has come roaring in like a lion for many parts of the country, but you know what, it’s women’s history month. Women have long ridden the winds of change. So this month,we’re celebrating, not only the achievements of women, but also encouraging those still striving to achieve their goals: from the trail blazers to the game changers, from the truth seekers to the truth tellers. Yes, women make history all year long, but to turn history into herstory requires the right mindset. That’s why this playlist is about bossing up our mindsets. To get hyped with our INTJ girl boss playlist. Scroll for music or click here to check out the full playlist. By the way, I would like to add that despite the #Timesup and #Metoo movements, music seems to be caught in the rut of selling overly sexualized images of women.

Hey Hey Hey – Katy Perry

INTJ girls are paradoxical even when bossing it up. We are a zen storm, a pretty rose with thorns, watch out.

 

Everybody Wants to be Famous – Superorganism

When fame and world domination collide.

Grown Woman – Beyoncé

There’s a difference between girl boss and a Boss. It takes a grown women to be a BOSS. Being a girl boss is about growing into a grown woman.

Masterpiece – Jessie J

Being a girl boss isn’t easy. Failure and uncertainty are constant companions. What matters is learning from mistakes and not giving up.

Never Give Up – Sia

This song comes from the movie, Lion, based on a true story about a five-year-old boy who gets separated from his brother on the busy streets of Calcutta. He endures frightening hardships and is eventually adopted by an Australian couple. Yet, he never forgets his family. Eventually, after years of searching, he reunites with his birth mother. The movie is, at times, heartbreaking, but it reaffirms the truth that the greatest challenge we all face is in finding our way.

 

This Is Me – Keala Settle (The Greatest Showman)

If you watched the 2018 Oscars show, you may have seen Keala Settle’s performance of the song, This Is Me. I didn’t include it in the playlist, but if you’re struggling with fear, uncertainty, or a desire to slip back into the shadows because of the hot glare of the spotlight, take a few moments and remind yourself that you are glorious, INTJ woman, scars and all! You march to the beat that you drum. Play this song whenever you need a reminder that the journey you’re on only requires that you be you. Happy Women’s History Month.

 

And, what the heck, here’s one more feel-good bonus video.

The Champion – Carrie Underwood, ft. Ludacris

If you’re a fan of Sunday football fan, you’ve probably heard this song, which was the 2018 theme song.

 

Listen to full playlist below.

Once March hits, it brings with it a special kind of madness that goes beyond hoop dreams. March is the month that whispers the promise of warmer weather. Yet, the longer that warmth takes to arrive, the more stir-crazy we can all begin to feel, especially as the cold lingers, or the weather seems to grow more temperamental. As Charles Dickens writes in Great Expectations, “… one of those March Days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold: when it’s summer in the light and winter in the shade.” March is the month where we go from cold to hot and back again, sometimes within hours. It is turbulent and indecisive and, most of all, changeable. That’s why spring transition fashion can make your closet seem as though it belongs to someone with two very different style aesthetics. Transitions are rarely perfectly smooth. Yet, there’s also something to love in the move from winter to spring, capriciousness aside. Despite the turbulence that comes as part of the transition, we can embrace a belief in the promise that spring represents. For those of us used to colder climates and four seasons, spring is a joy to the senses. We are taken with excitement at the sound of that first bird call. Budding plants awaken anticipation. Then in what seems an instant, spring bursts forth, offering up all of its promised pleasures. So we endure the turbulence of transition because we know that it is required to come to that place of renewal.

That brings us to the problem of what to wear during capricious March. This year, instead of just picking out designs that are firmly in the INTJ aesthetic, we’ve broadened our perspective. We placed the various fashions into categories that relate to a functional sense of how we, as consumers, think about fashion when we are looking to buy or wear an outfit. We tried to keep things evolved INTJ (meaning expanded from black on black on black). The categories for our spring styles are Light and Airy, AndroGirl, Spring Whites, Floral, Prints, and Transition Styles.

Goodbye INTJ Romance Fashion

Goodbye INTJ Romance Fashion

Sorry to say I wasn’t able to finish all the INTJ romance articles that I had planned for the month. Grad school has been occupying the majority of my mental space. Regardless, we hope you enjoyed the articles we did get out this month, and we are excited to start our girl boss theme for March. Before February is over (yeah really pushing it here), we are sharing our last two INTJ anti-romance looks. If you follow us on Instagram, you’ve already seen these pictures, but I’m happy to finally get them published on the blog. February has been too short and too busy. So, I’m glad to say goodbye to February and hello, March! Now, bring on spring break!
