The great thing about working in restaurants and other customer facing jobs is that so often the required apparel is a great reflection of the soul-crushing work we do. Why don’t you look cute while you wonder how you got here?
This Storets top is an acceptable take on the cold shoulder trend. Plus it makes you look like a ball busting bitch (in the best way possible).
These high rise Reformation jeans are interesting enough to wear outside of work but still basic, high rise black jeans. Get it.
These Carhartt Overalls come in black so I’m sold. I love that Carhartt became a chic streetwear staple a few years ago. Like, okay! Let’s all wear sturdy construction wear! I’m into it! They make women’s overalls but they are sold out and do not come in number sizes so I don’t trust them.
Allbirds in black are a lightweight alternative to black New Balance dad shoes. Full disclosure, I don’t own these, I’ve never worn a pair, and I don’t know anyone who does. I have read a lot of reviews online about these shoes. Apparently, they’re pretty comfortable and machine washable. You should probably put appropriate podiatrist approved insoles in them.
These Doc Martens aren’t black but I wear them to my restaurant job and pretend they are all the time. They’re comfortable. They’re vegan. There’s a reason why all the bartenders at your favorite bars wear them.
