For the past three weeks, I’ve featured different looks and pieces from Catherines as their style ambassador for the month of October. So far, I’ve shared with you a casual look, an evening look and a holiday look. Though I am sad to see my time with Catherines come to an end (tears), I am excited to showcase my last look; a business casual look.
For a long time, career wear meant boring and bland. Looks were created to mimic menswear and that was before that trend was updated with a feminine touch. The suiting back then had little flare or sass. Well, those days are over! Career wear is no longer a death sentence for the style loving fashionista.
Now classic pieces are important and critical to building a great work-ready wardrobe. Pairing them with edgy, bold and bright pieces gives you a unique flare without breaking the office dress code.
For today’s look, I paired the beautiful Refined Pant with the luscious Faux Fur Vest. For the pants, I’m wearing a size 0x and they fit perfect through the leg and length. They are available in petite sizing. Ladies, a classic well fitting black pant is a must! I look for pants that are fitted but not to the point where I can’t breathe. Remember to pick a size based on your largest body part; the rest can be easily altered. I typically size up in pants just to give my booty some additional room.
Next comes this cozy vest. Now I originally purchased this to wear with jeans on the weekend but hey, why not pair it with pants for work? I threw it on in the morning and instantly loved the look. Lastly, I slipped on the Cozy Chalet Sweater featured in my holiday look and I was ready for a full work day.
Have you enjoyed my Catherines October looks? How are you remixing your classic work pieces to show off your work style flare?
