Style Inspiration: What to Wear as a Bartender

Kristel says, “I recently got a job as a server at a bar serving young professionals. My attire must be black and sexy. I have a dress or two but I need more ideas. I can’t wear heels that are high because I’ll be on my feet for hours and going up and down stairs.”

Ah Kristel, you options are infinite and endless! With black, it’s only important to work with textures to make it interesting. Leather, feathers, embellishments, fringe, you can work any to the hilt! I’m sure shoes are your main concern–I’d think sandals might be a bit treacherous (don’t want anything falling on your toes!), so a pair of flat ankle or knee boots should do the trick:

For separates, why not pair leather effect trousers with a funky tank?

I’d steer away from crazy arm accessories (big rings, bracelets, etc), since you’ll be moving around and working with your hands so much. Just wear a pair of cute earrings and you’ll be good to go!
