Nov 4, 2014
1. Mango Mohair Coat ($230) // 2. Mango Printed Tie-Neck Blouse ($60) // 3. H&M Suit Pants ($35) // 4. Ivanka Trump Camela Pumps ($140) // 5. Ralph Lauren Newbury Satchel ($298) // 6. OPI Big Apple Polish ($9.50) // 7. Thin Shaped Ring Set ($45)
This week’s look comes from Olivia at Corporate Catwalk. I like the neutral mix for those days when you want to look sophisticated and sleek without thinking too hard about your outfit. Having an outfit like this at the ready makes those, “I have a closet full of nothing to wear” mornings easier.
My one comment is that I don’t care for the shorter length on the trousers. If you find a pair of suit trousers that you like, I recommend buying two pairs and having one tailored for flats and the other for pumps.
One. My grey coat is one of my favorite things about winter. If you want a neutral that is as versatile as black but not as common, grey is a winner. Looking for something under-$150? This Tinley Road long line coat is awesome. H&M also has a couple of choices, one with a funnel neck and one that’s collarless with a lightly puffed shoulder.
Two. The original blouse is from Ann Taylor, but is sold out. This Mango blouse offers the same color palette in a gauzier fabric. This Aqua blouse has a sleek crossover style and a v-neck. If you want a button-up shirt, this cloud-print shirt from Romwe is a great choice, especially for $27.
Three. I like a slim bootcut trouser, like these H&M pants, or a wider trouser style. If you’re looking for a better-quality bootcut trouser, I recommend these Lafayette 148 trousers that are half-off at Nordstrom.
Four. The shoes in the photo are from Kurt Geiger, but they’re out of my price range. With their mix of textures and toe cap, I thought these Ivanka Trump t-straps were a good substitute. For something amazing under-$100, I love these Reiss pumps in chocolate-brown, black and a hint of sheer.
Five. This satchel from Ralph Lauren is one of my favorite bags on the market right now. I also love their Ralph Lauren Tri-Zip bag, and it’s 33-percent-off. For something under-$100, I like this Merona satchel and this Limited satchel with metal trim.
Six. Red nail polish is a must. Whenever I need a pick me up, I paint my nails red. Add a bit of Deborah Lippmann Gel Lab base and top coat and I get at least 10 days out of my mani with few, if any touch ups.
