The stern & stoic legal setting you find yourself in Monday through Friday definitely demands a polished, professional aesthetic. However, there are subtle ways to infuse personality & modern trends while maintaining appropriateness.
With a suit as your jumping off point, take things to the next level through your layers. Try a bold, colorful or charmingly-printed blouse or button-down. Attempt a more eclectic look by pairing printed pencil skirts or richly-colored tailored trousers with structured tops & blazers in coordinating tones & neutrals.
Your accessories also hold the key to an exceptional ensemble. A bold necklace, unique drop earring or perhaps even a pop of color on your pumps will do nicely to add some sass to your sophistication. Don’t forget the ultimate classic accessory: a bright red lip, which is a classic staple of any stylish woman.
With a little experimentation, you’re sure to strike the right balance between the professional aesthetic your career demands & the stylish, chic looks your more creative side craves.
