Gone are the days of having to wear a suit to most offices. There’s much more freedom now when it comes to work attire, and therefore room to play around with pieces and express your true sense of style in the work place. Whether eye-catching or understated, accessories are crucial, especially if you do work in a more formal environment. A beautiful handbag, killer heels or statement watch can bring a simple look to life, and says a lot about your attention to detail.
I love trying out new color combinations for meetings: it makes me feel more confident, and it’s a lot more fun than the monotony of head-to-toe black. This sorbet-and-neutrals look was super fun to style. Although it’s not appropriate to wear a crop top in all work places, you could easily switch this one out for a longer version. But you get the idea: mixing up tailored pieces with more dressy, bright items; contrasting fabric textures – I really love to experiment. I never realized how warm army green, coral and pops of gold would look together actually!
So what are my workplace essentials this year? A gold Tory Burch Watch, loose cargo pants, and a sleeveless blazer. With those 3 items you can create a myriad of professional and chic looks.
Here’s why… Instead of overloading on jewels, I love how versatile a good gold watch can be. It adds an ‘I mean business’ vibe, but counts as a stunning piece of jewelry too. I added the sleeveless blazer for a clean, minimal feel. The tailoring just pulls any outfit together. And these pants are how cargos should be this season: loose, low-slung, and a very thin fabric. Look for a drawstring waist and elastic at the ankle to really show off your heel. Shoes and bag, i just kept as warm neutrals, otherwise the outfit would get too busy.
