For the Office. No, not everyone can or should wear sequins to the office. But I would choose this for a Friday at the end of session. And since a lot of Americans work in casual environments, they probably can too.
This outfit plays with colorblocking by matching the mint stripe to a similarly colored cardigan. It would be a good choice for a woman who has a date or an event after work. Just lose the cardigan and add lipstick and more eyeliner.
I own this bag in the red (on sale for $298) and it is fabulous. It can get a little heavy if you over pack it, but I think the pockets make it an excellent work tote.
For the hair, I would wear it down in some loose waves or half-up if you need it out of your face. For the makeup, keep it simple and neutral during the day and punch it up with a red lip at night.
For Sunday Brunch. This outfit is all about mixing the raspberry bag with the mint and navy top. It’s a color combination that I can really get behind because it’s a bit unexpected but still understated.
I chose white denim for the end of summer, but you could also do a skinny navy pant or regular blue jeans. A simple sandal, a fun drop earring and the wonderful stone ring finish off the outfit.
For the hair, I would wear it down with a little bit of beachy texture. For the makeup, I’d play up my cheeks with bronzer and blush and use a glossy pink-coral color on my lips.
