This look from Corporate Catwalk is crisp and chic.  For conservative offices, it’s a great casual Friday option.  For more relaxed offices, it’s a fabulous workday outfit.  It’s a fantastic way to wear white pants to work during the waning days of summer.

One. A striped oxford is a versatile addition to your wardrobe.  This mandarin collar blouse is nice.  I also like this basic button-up from Ann Taylor and this one from Talbot’s, both under-$50.  Plus-size?  Land’s End makes a reliably good oxford shirt.

Looking for other ways to wear the shirt?  I like it with jeans and red shoes.  Or try it with a brightly colored pencil skirt.

Two. The pop of red lipstick and polish with this outfit is what makes it for me.  Simple, elegant clothing with a burst of bright red.  Timeless.

Three. A few years ago, I thought chunky watches were a passing fad.  Now, they’re a little slimmer, but still make a statement.  This slim watch from Michael Kors is part of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.  This A-Line women’s watch has a similar look for $69.

Four. A pair of white or ivory crepe trousers is a year-round staple for me.  I wear them with colors and light neutrals in the summer, black and camel in the winter.

Looking for a cheaper pair?  This Classiques Entier pair have a elegant look to them ($93, also in petite).  I also like this crepe pair from Talbot’s for under-$50.  Tall?  Try these Worthington pants from JCPenney.

Five. This grey bag from Merci Marie is a great piece.  For something with a bit more flare, try this Erica Annenberg bag with interesting hardware.  I also like this under-$50 satchel from Target.

Six. Olivia is wearing open-toe shoes in the photo, but I prefer something closed-toe for work.  Michael Kors flex pumps are my favorite shoes.  The sole is rubber to absorb shock, and the shoe is flexible for comfort.

This is their mid-heel height.  The shoes also come in a higher heel.  I also like these INC heels (in four colors) if you’re looking for something under-$75.

    I love how white trousers look but I am so terrified to commit to purchasing a pair. I am entirely convinced that I will destroy them even though I am not a particularly messy person. Maybe I could have them treated with something stain-resistant. Wait – isn’t that a thing for mens trousers? Pretty sure I’ve never seen it in ladies’ wear.
