A guest post by Stylist Manifesto? Yes!:
Without a doubt, the summer has an amazing array of clothing options. For you ladies, it’s a time of breezy dresses, skirts, shorts and tops where the sleeves are totally optional. Equally important for you all is the ability to seamlessly, and fashionably, go from the professional setting to the casual one. For this entry, we’ll go ahead and explore some style options that can perform office duty as well as after hours fun! Ready? Let’s begin. Oh, and since this post is basically written exclusively for fashiongrail.com, we’re gonna pull everything from
If you’re new to me, just know that I LOVE the pencil skirt on you ladies. It’s elegant, timeless, and always fashionable. This time, we’re taking the traditional pencil skirt silhouette, yet replacing the usual heavier material for a light and airy linen. To facilitate the transition from the office to girls night out or that hot date, pair this with a contrasting premium tee like the model does here. It’s more casual and is a perfect nod to your disdain for having to end that spectacular weekend you just had.
I’ll leave the bracelet up to you but make sure it’s compatible with the other jewelry pieces. Think jackie-o on this one, ok?
The accessories and footwear are up to you. Keep it minimal and modern so as to match the dress.
Casual friday is quite possibly the greatest invention of the corporate era! Now you get to show off that street style you’ll be rocking this weekend. Start off with the off-the-shoulder tee above and pair with a wide belt to match the brown in the top. You can really go with light or dark denim for this one and no, your purse does not have to match your belt. For the feet, sandals, heels, tenis, whatever! As long as it’s compatible with the rest of your look, go for it! Hats are a bonus too. Jewelry? The bigger the better. Chunky, geometric, flashy, you name it! Bold is boss! I included the cardigan below as a bonus because alot of the time the A/C is kept ice cold in the office.
Ok, since I’ve literally laid out your entire week, there should be no reason for you ladies to look like angela from The Office. Each day is just one more opportunity for you to demonstrate to everyone else that the workplace is your personal runway, no matter the workload. Furthermore, you don’t even need to stop by la casa pa’ cambiar before meeting for dinner or drinks! Business can be beautiful.
