Sweater: Boden Grace Sweater ($98)

From Left, Earrings: Ralph Lauren Pearl Studs ($24) Bracelet: Vince Camuto Cuff ($48) Bag: Minkoff Perry Satchel ($495) Skirt: Double Serge Wool Pencil Skirt ($130) Shoes: LK Bennett Stila Pumps ($289)

From Right, Earrings: Montery Gold Hoops ($39) Ring: Pretty Gold Ring ($12) Bag: Blake Small Satchel ($249) Boots: Vince Camuto Kadia Satchel ($162) Top: Boden Breton Tee ($38) Jeans: AG Legging Jean ($225)

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 hair, I’d wear it up.  Probably in a low twist.  For the makeup, a nude lip and a dark brown, gel eyeliner.

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.

These distressed jeans are a great casual option.  For something less expensive, check out these $88 Blank jeans or these $35 Old Navy jeans.  Plus-size?  Try these Nordstrom Eloquii jeans.

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.

    Belle, what color pants/skirt should you pair with an olive blazer? I’ve seen it styled with black, but I’m not convinced…

  3. thb says:

    I have an olive blazer that I wear with winter white, black and khaki-ish pants. very versatile. No fear, it really is a neutral. When I do this, the accessories put it together. Easy!
