How To Smarten Up Your Work Dress
During the summer, dressing is simple. Grab your favorite dress, slather on SPF and go. When it starts to cool down, the transition is easy! Smarten up your go-to shift or sheath by channeling a feminine menswear look by adding on a straight fit blazer or one that nips in to define your waist.
Stylist Tip: “When you’re tracking down a perfectly fit blazer, make sure it fits squarely on the shoulders. If it’s too snug, you won’t be able to move your arms and if it’s too big it’ll look like you’ve borrowed your dad’s!”—Jami
How To Transition Your Jeans
No matter the season, we’ll never give up on our jeans. From skinny to wide-leg, we wear them 365. To give your denim a fall spin, slip into an autumnal-hued top in olive green, burgundy or mustard. It’s the perfect head-out-the-door-in-5 look!
How To Play With Prints At Work
In July, we paired our printed blouse with a slim pencil skirt for the big meetings, and a midi skirt during the weekends. Now, take this same style into the fall with a pair of cropped, slim-fitting pants. If your slim pants are high-rise (a super flattering for all!), front tuck your shirt to show off your shape.
Stylist Tip: “This fall, we’ll see a ton of colored denim everywhere. Get ahead of the style curve by picking up a pair in a hue that’s also part of the print you’re wearing up top. Keep your accessories and shoes neutral so your pants stand out.”—Casey
How To Reimagine The Power Suit
Get creative with your power suits. Swap out your traditional slacks for a neutral lace skirt and a classic white button-up that screams confidence. Why? You’ll stand out in a sea of navy and black.
Stylist Tip: “If your office A/C is constantly on full blast, bring a crew neck sweater along to layer over your button up for a classic and feminine twist.”—Erika
How To Refresh Your Go-To Neutrals
Rethink neutrals at the office. Next time you reach for your trusty pair of black, navy or grey pants (we know they’re your fashion fail-safe!) take your look to a more grounded, earth-toned place instead. Try pairing rich, chocolatey brown trousers with a cream silk top in a feminine silhouette. Bonus points for romantic details like trims and covered buttons.
Stylist Tip: “You can still wear pastels and creams into fall—just pair them with darker, autumnal hues to fully transition your palette.”—Jessica
