Two Ways: Mango Sheer Blouse
May 13, 2015
Shirt: Mango Plumeti Blouse ($59)
A black, sheer blouse is a great piece for any wardrobe. You can dress it up or down. The easiest thing is to pair it with other black separates. You can also wear grey, white, or navy. But I wanted to do something a bit different with this blouse.
Business Casual. Blush and black is a wonderful color combination. I love the mix of sleek and soft. The sheerness of the blouse mixed with the soft blush hue makes a lovely spring outfit.
I will do almost anything to create the optical illusion of longer legs. The easiest trick is a pointed-toe shoe in the same color as your trousers. These blush pumps from Halogen are perfect for that.
A black bag would be a little heavier than I am looking for, so I thought this crinkled bag was a nice substitute. You could also go with a simple grey bag, like this Demman satchel from Aldo.
Creative Casual. I usually hate the phrase “creative casual.” It’s one of those invitation dress codes that makes no sense and leaves too much room for interpretation. In this case, I mean relaxed attire for women in creative fields (PR, marketing, etc.).
I added a simple black pump with a bit of drama in the deep vamp. The shoe also comes in a cool lizard-embossed print. To complete the outfit, I added a pearl earring and a simple satchel. If you’re looking for an inexpensive black bag, try this $55 Aldo Halifax satchel.
