Spring has sprung! Well, most places it has sprung. I realize a few of you still have melting snow. I have nothing for you. Maybe wear one of these items under your puffer coat.
So for today’s Fashion Friday: let’s look at ways to SPRING UP our work wardrobe.
If you’re a total color lover like me, then you’re pulling out your greens and yellows for work. But beyond simply color, there’s more that can be done.
In order to achieve some of these springy looks, I am seriously considering trying Rent the Runway. The last few colleagues I complimented on their fabulous dresses, each said they were from Rent the Runway. And when I started scanning there options, I got lots of fresh ideas for a spring-a-rific work upgrade.
Option One: Dots and Stripes
I think polka dots and starkly contrasting stripes seriously read spring. Check out this killer Badgley Mischka navy striped sheath, this fresh polka dot Ralph Lauren belted dress, or this Trina Turk inverted stripe pencil skirt. They read utterly fresh and clean and read for the season. Plus, uber successful professional.
Option Two: Different Patterns
Maybe you avoid patterned dresses or blouses as a rule. Or maybe you’re all for patterns but you have gotten stuck in a rut with the handful you already have in your closet. Think of some different types of patterns than those you’ve used or currently have. Step way out with this pink hued leopard wrap dress by Leota. Or throw your favorite blazer over this lavender Diane Von Furstenberg midi dress. Even bigger patterned than either of these is this oversized floral Tory Burch sheath.
Option Three: Single solid BOLD color
Find one item with a super flattering cut for your figure. A-line. Sheath. Full. Whatever you know works and you feel confident in. Then go ALL in with a crazy solid bold color. It’s critically important you find a cut you know is flattering because no one will miss you walking into the board room. What’s it going to be? Trina Turk orange? Alexia Admor blue? Valentino red? Jason Wu green? (Seriously y’all, is this fantastic or WHAT!?!?)
What say you? How do you Spring Up your work wardrobe now that the season is here? And what’s you’re biggest work fashion dilemma?
