Browsing through Pinterest the other day, we stumbled upon this image. Anything that makes us pause before continuing to scroll down the page is something that needs to be inspected further.
This image is no exception. It made us stop and think about fall/winter trends, color palettes, and textures, and how each of those elements can be incorporated into our office attire.
Maybe your office dress code is strictly business formal, or maybe you have no dress code at all, but the facts remain the same; trends, colors, and textures are ways of playing with fit and proportion, as well as ways of infusing some personality and fun into your daily attire.
We’ve said this before, but it is something that we think is important for working women—just because you’re dressing for the office doesn’t mean you can’t have fun with what you wear!
When we first saw this picture, we were drawn in by the green jacket, and we started thinking about how this shade of jade is often overlooked. A color that works with every skin tone, we started to wonder why more women don’t gravitate toward this shade, especially for the office.
Jewel tones like this one, which are dark and saturated, are perfect for an office setting, and when worn on a garment such as a structured blazer, the look exudes a polished elegance. In addition to this deep green hue, the image also made us think about how to incorporate cut and texture into our work wardrobe.
Masculine prints worn on a knubby sweater are perfect for fall/winter, but many women shy away from knits like this because the silhouette can be very unflattering. Luckily, there is a simple answer to this conundrum—tailored outerwear, which can run the gamut from a blazer to a classic trench coat.
Paired with a piece that gives you shape and which lends an air of femininity makes fall’s chunky sweaters wearable and stylish for a number of different settings. Did we mention our Elizabeth Side-Panel Neoprene Skirt looks great with a chunky sweater?
