One of my favorite reasons to get “dressed up” every day is for my job. I love putting together trendy and sophisticated work outfits that flatter my body. This season, I have a few favorite trends that are showing up in my wardrobe:
Houndstooth is a classic pattern. It shows up year after year in collections because it is gorgeous, and easy-to-wear. I love both of these houndstooth dresses because of their figure-flattering shapes. The NY Collection dress I found at Macy’s at Northshore Mall is a simple sheath, but the black “belt” in the middle draws in your waist at the perfect part of your body. Similarly, the Jessica Simpson dress from Nordstrom at Northshore Mall is also a waist accentuating stunner! I love that it will also mask what I deem the most inconvenient part of my body (my tummy).
Although I tend to lean towards black and white (have you noticed yet?), pops of color are huge this season. I love this bright teal jacket from Banana Republic at Northshore Mall. Not only is this a beautiful color on most people, this jacket is tailored with a feminine silhouette to contour and slim your waist! Who doesn’t love that? I’m also adore these high-waisted pants from White House | Black Market at Northshore Mall. These pants are a great fit because the button-accented tabs on the waistband draw your eye away from the tummy “problem” area, plus there are only pockets in the back to keep the front smooth and flat!
Finally, when I saw this coat from White House | Black Market at Northshore Mall, I knew I just had to have it. With all the feminine detail, it really stands out and is a gorgeous addition to my work wardrobe. I’m also loving this peplum shirt from Phillip Lim 3.1 at Nordstrom at Northshore Mall, as well as these patent-leather pumps. Put these two together with some bright red or houndstooth-patterned pants, and you have got yourself one head-turning, well-put-together work outfit!
I hope you enjoyed reading about my love for flattering work wear! Here are some upcoming events I’m excited about:
