Taking business casual up a notch is one of the biggest request from my clients. I think revitalizing the work wardrobe is something everyone should do from time to time. New looks not only help break up the daily routine, I believe it can boost your self-confidence and give you a new perspective on yourself.
A staple item for women in the work place is typically the black dress. Depending on the dress code at your place of employment, sleeveless dresses and tops may be a no no, so finding a blazer that compliments your dresses can be a challenge in itself. Other times we try to break up the monotony of the simple dress by going for garments with a unique design, embellishments or textures.
Within the last five years, the peplum design has made a modern comeback to tops, dresses and pencil skirts. I think it’s great to see a design make a comeback that every size and shape can wear.
Another TEN styling homerun. Can we talk about the length on this peplum and how refreshing it is to see a different interpretation of this cut? I felt great in this dress and the lines complimented my figure.
The blazer was something I had been online stalking for weeks from White House Black Market. Cream color with a unique cut in the front, made it different from your typical blazers. *Total side note, the blazer was originally $150 and I walked into WHBM just to “try it on” and it was magically on sale for $60. I take wins where I can get them*
The dress was an item that was pulled specifically for me by Kesha at TEN. Kesha knew what would work with my body type and she knew I’d love taking a chance with this dress. The design is bold enough that it’s a welcome change to the traditional black dress and peplum skirt, without breaking the office dress code.
We spend a significant portion of our lives at work and in business attire, so why not take your business casual look up a notch?
