new year, lookin’ for a new job, perhaps? well suit up! here’s an inspired take on how to work the suit to an interview (check out the metallic shoes - the new neutral):
add some interest with a great shirt and showcase a little bit of your personality while still maintaining an “i-mean-business’ look.
the metallic shoes take this basic suit up a notch without taking it over the top.
2012: booties - steve madden (winners), brompton bag - jcrew (love it!), stripped sweater - joe fresh/2011: skinny jeans - banana republic, scarf - jacob/2010: blazer - h&m
style note: taking these skinny jeans from casual friday workwear to weekend wear.
2012: blazer - banana republic (gift), booties - steve madden (winners), brompton handbag - jcrew, skirt - gap/2011: shirt - banana republic
style note: this is very playful (read: youthful) look that admittedly i wouldn’t wear to the office, but i was inspired so i thought, “why not try it?”.
i hope my interpretation can serve as inspiration for those of you who can pull it off, either for work or for play.
2012: no.2 pencil skirt - jcrew, animal print blouse - cynthia rowley (winners), belt - joe fresh, pumps - nine west
style tip: although i bought this skirt for the summer (loved the colour), i think i will pair it with some tights and a turtle neck and bring some sunshine to those bleak fall/winter days in the cube. what summer pieces can you transition?
