Wear to Work: Mix the Tailored and the Unstructured

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


The tailored blazer is a cornerstone of your work wardrobe in a business formal office - but it can work wonders even in a business casual environment.  Simply pair your blazer with more unstructured pieces to make it more casual.  Here’s how to get the business casual look with a blazer:

1.  Start with a crested blazer - the epitome of old-world style.
2.  Layer a drapey, romantic blouse under the tailored blazer.
3.  Add a fluid skirt in a color complementary to the jacket.  To pull the outfit together, we chose a bright blue to pair with the navy jacket.
4.  Accessorize with a pair of pumps and a structured work bag.  Bonus points for a bright pair of shoes to warm up the outfit–we’re digging the bright yellow juxtaposed against the blue blazer and skirt.
