How does one dress fashionably for work? This must be an every-morning conundrum women in corporate America face Monday to Friday. Take a lesson from my good friend Rachel here: punchy bright pleated skirt and short crisp white blazer. And because Friday after hours is the happiest of happy hours, a pair of ankle strap high heels will make for a perfect parlay from boardroom to barroom.
Something so model-off-duty about this look, no? The slim pants, metallic shoes, and moto jacket — all essentials to perfectly achieving the deliberate effortless look.
I’m gonna put this out there, wild prints are not for everyone, but if you’re on the hunt for a look that’s more adventurous than your normal jeans-and-tee, a safari-inspired getup might just do the job. Take it from Melody here in a soft linen, olive green utilitarian dress buckled with a skinny braided brown belt — it’s a refined alternative to your spangled brights and playful patterns.
I don’t know about you, but black on black on black (with bonus braided hair) is always a bright idea. And if you haven’t noticed (you have, haven’t you?), I’ve been acing it in the alliteration arena recently. Patting myself on the back as we speak.
