Psst: After seeing a ton of reader requests for outfit inspiration from real working women, I’m going to try to start featuring some on the Corporette Instagram account. If you’ve got a killer work outfit, send it in! If you have your own Instagram and want to be featured with credit, use the hashtag #RealWomenWorking to be considered… if you want to be anonymous (or don’t have an Instagram account), please take a snap and email us (headless shots are OK). (I hope it doesn’t need to be said, but women of all sizes are welcome to submit!) —Kat
