Every season I look for a few staple pieces to form the foundation of my seasonal wardrobe. This fall is no different. A crisp white blouse is a staple for any women who wears a suit. Now take that blouse and add some detail to it. That detail can mean everything in an outfit and will allow you to form interesting and trendy outfits utilizing that one piece. Below I am showing you my cream ruffle blouse from Sezane.
Someone once told me that they separate their closet into two sections; work and non-work clothing. As you can imagine, I was baffled. Mix and match your weekend and work pieces, it will make getting ready for work fun. This top is traditionally a more “work appropriate” top, but it can easily be worn with trendy pieces like I’m wearing in today’s look.
Mini skirts are a huge trend at the moment. This blouse comes in two other colors and can easily be worn with a mini skirt and flats or in my case, leopard booties. To make it a little more trendy, I grabbed this red statement bag that looks great with leopard. I love berets, so I tossed this on for an extra touch to the outfit.
Off Duty Look
My favorite off duty look is super simple; a black blazer, blouse and heels. It is classic and I just feel like Superwomen in this outfit. The detail in the blouse gives it some added detail and the printed clutch gives it some flair. I tend to wear diamond studs a lot but with this particular look, I’ll wear gold eye-drops or gold rings. This blouse will go with any color blazer you have and dependent on the month will match with any shade of denim. If you have pinstripes, even better.
I love trousers almost as much as I love pencil skirts. The oversize strap in front is fun and paired with the ruffles of the blouse, it works great. Not too dressed up but still whispers business. I chose nude heels here but you could easily slip on a pair of black heels and it would look fantastic. It’s a simple look but very beautiful. Perfect for creative meetings with an agency or client. Easily transitions to after hours and you will be comfortable for hours. Love the simplicity of this outfit.
Last week, so many of you left me the sweetest comments about these types of posts. The point of these posts is for you to get more out of that “one shirt” you bought. There are so many ways to wear pieces in your closet, just need to get a little creative.
But tell me, do you want more of these posts? Weekly? Monthly? Casual offices? Corporate offices? Teachers? Talk to me. Tell me. Talk to me! 🙂
It’s Monday and I’m feeling motivational…
Ladies, it’s 2017. We own fashion in the workplace. Goodbye suits and ties. Hello faux leather, ruffles and statement sleeves. Force yourself to push the envelope.
People judged me, made comments, but I felt good when I walked into work. More importantly, it made a huge difference on my performance at the office. 😉
