For the Office. The great thing about teal is that it can be worn in any season. (It is not the ‘color of gangrene’, despite what Jennifer Lopez says.) This seamed dress from Rebecca Taylor is a great dress for early fall and winter (tights, people, tights). Looking for a teal dress for less? Try this long sleeve dress or this short sleeve dress, both from Overstock and both under-$30.
For this look, I chose a mix of metals. This is apparently my new obsession, but I digress… I love this Gurhan wave ring because it’s simple and interesting at the same time. If you’re looking for mixed metal jewelry that doesn’t break the bank, I like this bolt bracelet from Marc Jacobs, this Orelia stud ring and this mixed metal set from Forever21.
I also chose a black shopper, but you could go with something a bit more structured like this under-$50 Emperia tote.
For the hair, I would wear it down in a wave or straightened, dealer’s choice (but not pin straight, that’ a bit severe for daytime and this dress). For the makeup, I like berry tones with teal so a Black Honey lip is on order.
For the Office. I was never a big ran of mixing black and red until I saw Jean at Extra Petite do it. As long as the blouse is a mix of black and white with more white, it works without being too severe.
I like the shape and feminine details on this blouse. However, this black and white chevron blouse (or it’s less expensive sister) could also work. I also considered this inexpensive Wallis blouse with a chain of bubbles print.
