For a bit of fun towards the end of the work week, we’ll show you how to twist a trendy outfit into a totally appropriate office stunner.
I just adore this outfit. Possibly because I adore TTH, period. This is a perfect example of how layering in the same color family, can look incredibly pulled together rather than an attempt at matching that didn’t quite work out. When pairing in the same color family, make sure the colors on the different garments are either distinct enough to be…well…distinguishable or if they are very close in color that the texture is wildly different – to underline the “mismatch” is a deliberate choice.
I’d keep the calf-length ankle skirt, though if that doesn’t work for your shape, a classic knee-length pencil does work just as well. I wouldn’t recommend an overcoat, but rather a blazer that hit at or above the hip. A peplum blazer that flares out at the natural waist would also work. Add a belt if you want to define your waist even more. Personally though, I love the look of the belted lace top and would wear the jacket open, using it as a more appropriate version of the overcoat. I’m not particularly crazy about the black lapels, though I couldn’t find anything else that picked up the black of the shirt, didn’t touch the black of the shirt and was office appropriate. Reader super-sleuths, if you find something that fits these criteria – get back to me, please.
