Wear to Work: Sport the Classic Big over Small Silhouette

Wear to Work
Feeling the love for this set?  Here’s more information about it.

In fashion, there are a few classic silhouettes - big over small, small over big, small over small, and the largely unflattering big over big.  Here’s how to take the classic big over small silhouette to work:

1. Start with a loosely cut, blousy top.  We love the textured neckline of this grey henley.
2.  Juxtapose silhouettes: the (big) blousy top against a (small) figure-hugging pencil skirt. 
3.  Pull on a patterned sweater in a complementary color.  The neutral grey henley just feels brighter with this lovely yellow floral patterned sweater.
4.  Finish off the look with work-friendly accessories: brown bow-adorned pumps and a work tote with tailored details.

Nom de Plume Checkerboard Dress


Go bold in this strapless yellow and blue plaid dress. We’re loving the high-waisted silhouette, the ever-so-slight tulip skirt, and the unashamedly statement-making pattern.

$68  at Urban Outfitters.

We love it when we can have our cake and eat it too. And we’ve found a new way to do it. Featured as one of Oprah’s Top Summer Picks, Fit Flops allow you to get a workout, even when you’re just taking a walk.

Unlike traditional shoes, which are meant to stabilize us on the ground, Fit Flops are designed to “wobble” your midsole as you walk, which helps keep your gluteal, hamstring, and calf muscles active longer. By walking around in Fit Flops, you can help tone your thighs and bottom.

So go on, have that extra slice of cake. You deserve it.

$59.99  at Bliss.
