Career Style: Pearls and Stripes
Feb 7, 2011
I don’t often wear my black pants suit, but when I do, I like to layer on a lot of pieces to give it extra punch. Why? Because pants suits are so painfully boring, that if I don’t do something to give it lift, I may fall asleep at my desk.
This is a great way to recycle that striped tee that we all have hanging in the closet. To make it more professional, I wear a pointed collar shirt underneath. To make it more interesting, I like to add a multi-strand necklace or layer on several necklaces.
Also, how great are these shoes from Simply Soles? And at $148, affordable on a staffer’s salary. They also come in blue and nude. Though I do wish they made them in grey.
To see which other pieces I used for this set, check out my Polyvore page.
