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.
