For the Office. This outfit is a mix of earth tones and neutrals. I initially thought I wanted an emerald-green skirt, but when I couldn’t find one, I went with olive. I actually like it better. If you’d prefer the deeper green, try this skirt from J.Crew Factory. I also like this under-$20 teal skirt from JCPenney.
I like the sleekness of the funnel neck sweater, but some of you may be looking for something chunkier. For that, I recommend this sweater from H&M with a unique cable knit.
Pearl earrings really bring light to your face when worn with an ivory top. I chose these ones with the gold-tone bezel to match the cuff bracelet. If you need something under-$25, this BCBGeneration chevron cuff is nice, as is this Topshop triangular cuff.
The shoes and bag are a mix of rich browns. I like tortoise pumps, but they’re becoming difficult to find. As a replacement, try a pair of dark brown heels. And if you need tights, I recommend the nude fishnets that I’m always raving about.
For the Weekend. I love layering a longer top under a 3/4-sleeve sweater. The peek of print or color is a great way to add extra interest to the look. It also offers my skin a layer of protection from the itchy wool. I chose a simple, striped tee, but you could also try an ivory chiffon blouse for a mix of textures.
I added a dark grey boot and a bright red bag for fun. If you’re not crazy about the bright red, try this burgundy barrel satchel from Forever21. I also like these fun gold hoops from Stella and Dot and the simple gold ring ($12? Yes, please.). If you want a smaller hoop, I like these Gorjana Elea hoops.
For the hair, I would try a bouncy ponytail. For the makeup, lots of black mascara and a sheer red lip.
