Wear to Work: Architectural Details

June 25th, 2010

The blouse and pencil skirt combination is one of the oldest in the book, but you can make this simple silhouette interesting again with the right details.  Here, we’ve played with architectural details - on the blouse, the handbag, and the shoe - in order to make a look that’s as sharp as it is smart.  On the plain white blouse, a sharp shoulder recalls the 1980s, but in a sophisticated fashion.  The strong lines of the shoulder are echoed on the solid lines of the bright red handbag - and again on the architecturally inspired pair of suede heels.  Here’s how to get the look:

Space Sleeve Shirt | $36 at Topshop

Superfine Cotton Pencil Skirt | $98 at J Crew

Julienne Suede Heels | $198 at J Crew

Plain Leather Vintage Belt | $30 at Topshop

NW3 By Hobbs Fitzjohn Howden Bag | $302.67 at ASOS
