All in Style
The purpose of this article is to encourage you to wear your formalwear in more ways than one. Obviously this depends on the type of piece that you have.
This first look is my take on an early evening outfit, it transitions nicely from day to dinner. I paired a loose blouse with an A line floral skirt, sock boots and a blazer. To spice it up, I tied a black neckerchief around my neck to create an elevated, choker-like look. When it comes to evening wear, I think that chokers are super sexy, but can come across as childish. The perfect alternative for a more mature look is a thin scarf or neckerchief. Mine was a parting gift from DRESSHIRT, the fashion company that I used to intern for.

There is a familiar nostalgia about the crispness of fall air and the transition to boots and sweaters. It's a bittersweet goodbye to summer, but a warm welcome to the colder weather that us New Englander's know so well. There is something refreshing about fall to me, it feels like the beginning of something. It's time to reset and restart and this reflects in the way that we dress for fall.
Surprisingly, the best work wear investment I made was in a black pleated midi skirt. I say surprisingly because I am not much a of a skirt wearer, I'm usually in jeans. However, this skirt has provided me with a reliable base to plan work wear and street wear around. I have worn it with a blouse and heels for work and changed into a tee and sneakers for exploring the city. It has been my key transition piece for fall and spring, and always excites me season after season.
how to wear the statement sleeves trend for a work outfit and for a casual outfit. 80's are back. When I first heard this I cringed, the 80's are my least favorite decade in fashion. The styles were so out there and gaudy with neon colors, perms and ill fitting clothing (MC Hammer pants). Even after seeing the Saint Laurent sparkle boot during fashion week my feelings haven't changed much. However, when details are taken from the decade and simplified, and modernized, I can get behind them. Like this simplified statement sleeve with a wrap waist. In addition to being "on trend", it creates a flattering silhouette. The volume of the sleeves paired with a slim waist, creates the illusion of a smaller med section. I chose to pair this H&M balloon sleeve top with high waisted denim and a monogram belt. This style can be overwhelming, so I recommend keeping the look simple. Here are some other ways that I plan on wearing it:
