Career Style: Stylish Separates

Apr 4, 2011

 

Polyvore Set Found Here.

A navy pencil skirt is a warm weather necessity.  Here, I paired this basic with a navy and white, micro-striped blazer instead of the matching blazer.  And while the basic, white blouse may not be anything to write home about, it’s the accessories that really make the outfit.

Once you have a wardrobe full of basic, which if your weight stays stable, should take about two to three years to collect, you can add the fun and chic accessories that make a wardrobe great.  Here we have a pair of fabulous sandals in an odd shape, but a neutral color.  We also have a thick belt that can transform everything from a cotton dress to an evening gown into something special.  And as for the ring, yes it’s pricey (just under $400), but it makes every outfit better.

The Find: A Striped Tee

Without question, the most worn item in my wardrobe is a black-and-white striped tee. I wear it in winter under sweaters, in spring with white jeans, in summer with black shorts. I’ve been wearing the same one for years (it’s the best). But they don’t make it anymore. So here are some options for replacement.
