A colored skirt is one of my favorite pieces in any season. I love this J.Crew skirt for the fall/winter; its plum hue is so gorgeous. Want something brighter? This Boden skirt in orange and red is a showstopper. Prefer the subtler hues? This teal skirt from Saturday is fab.
For Casual Monday. For this movie, I wanted to mix a variety of textures–silk, wool, chunky knit. This look bridges casual and professional into a cozy outfit. It’s a good choice for a semi-relaxed winter workday.
This sweater is a cozy knit for chilly offices. I also really like this Neiman Marcus cardigan with a wide weave, currently on sale for $53. Or if you want to splurge a chunky knit cardigan, I own this M.M. Lafleur sweater, and it is so.so.so warm. Plus-size? This chunky Junarose cardigan is worth a look.
Tall boots keep your legs just a little warmer, which is always appreciated in chilly offices. Sadly, most grey boots only come in suede. If you prefer leather, I found these wedge boots. To complete the outfit, I added a teal handbag (what a buy!) and a pair of inexpensive hoops.
For the hair, a soft updo (good for short or long hair). For the makeup, I would wear a soft plum-colored blush and a good coat of black eyeliner and mascara.
For the Office. I love the navy and purple color combination. It’s rich and luxurious. It’s practical, but also loaded with color.
Another Iris & Ink blouse (sensing a theme here?), but if you need something cheaper, try this round-neck top from Boden. I love Rebecca Taylor’s tweed jackets, and this one is no exception. This Nine West jacket is a good place to start if you need something less expensive.
These grey booties felt like a better fit for this outfit than grey pumps, but it’s dealer’s choice. I chose micro-fishnets instead of tights because they felt a bit more adult than tights, and seemed a better fit for the outfit.
For the makeup, I’d keep it soft with a light dusting of plum shadow on the eyes. For the hair, I would do a teased, half-up/half-down style.
