Queer Masculine Executive Assistant Wardrobe Essentials

Queer Masculine Executive Assistant Wardrobe Essentials

Anonymous asked: Hi Sonny!! I’m what I like to call a late-bloomin’ lesbian. I’ve only been out 3 years (I’m 27). I spent most of my life being very uncomfortable in my clothes and was very unable to establish a style because of it. I’m from SC and will be moving to NYC in a couple months. What are the essentials of business attire with a queer flair for executive assistants? I’m comfortable more masculine- tie & all. Where to find good shoes & pants? I’m comfortable finding the rest. PS You’re amazing- keep on!

Hi Anon!! Thanks for all the kind words. I turned this one over to Sean because they are an actual executive assistant. - Sonny

I thrift for everything aka I spend way too much time touching other people’s clothing. BUT, when I do buy new things, I typically shop at J.Crew, Brooks Brothers, Banana Republic, Express (but with a lot of caution), Uniqlo, and Topman.

Advice: Initially, stick with a color palette (such as grey, blues, and blacks) so your clothing is interchangeable, and you can make a lot of outfits. Moreover, if you’re an Executive Assistant, you need to look professional, reliable, and awesome every day, which means to tone-down the dandy and channel your inner business executive. (but, like, gayboi executive, because being fashionable is so possible.)
