Some days (who are we kidding - most days), you’re running around from place to place, and you need a single outfit that works for work and for after hours. This is especially challenging when you need to go from polished to relaxed without the benefit of going home to change. Challenge Accepted! We’ve crafted a look that does double duty, casually polished if you will. Here’s how to get the look:
1. Start with a striped button down blouse over a pair of jeans. Depending on how casual or polished your look needs to be, you’ll want to choose a pair of jeans appropriately. For a more formal look, opt for dark rinse with a straight leg. If you can go more casual, you can try more interesting rinses and treatments - and you can try styles from boyfriend to skinny.
2. Layer on a hoodie. We chose navy to tie back to the striped top and the denim jeans.
3. If you’d like to polish up the look, there’s no faster way to do this than a standout jacket. This red and blue cropped jacket makes your look spiffy without being too stuffy.
4. Finish off the look with go-anywhere accessories: a bright red laptop bag and a pair of comfy ballet flats to take you wherever you need to go.
