Graphic Content Viewers be advised this look is all types of fabulous! This Peter Pilotto skirt is bold but its classic shape still makes it (depending on your office) work appropriate. This crisp white Theory shirt style underneath this J brand blazer allows you to tone down the prints without turnin’ down.  This Maison Boinet belt works to tie in the black blazer as well as give the look a polished finish. While these Paul Andrew sling backs may be pushing it for some women, the color is important because it balances the prints. This Lionette NY necklace can either be worn like a bib over the collar or it can simply be adjusted to sit nicely on the collar bone. These Jennifer Zuener love studs are a fun alternative to wearing classic studs and they are small enough to wear without everyone commenting on them. This chic Alexander McQueen scarf is great tied around the neck or as a fun sash to add to this beautiful Lavin bag.


Pastel Power

Sampling SorbetIts amazing how these fresh pastels give new life to these work basics. This denim Altuzarra skirt is a cool casual Friday option but if denim challenges your work wear guide lines these J.JS Lee  salmon wool trousers are the more safe way to go and still allows you to indulge in the trend. This Stella McCartney blazer is ultra feminine yet still powerful because of it’s classic cut. A great underpinning goes a long way and this silk Kenzo camisole helps to bring the look together while the Bottega Veneta  belt offers a finishing touch. These Louboutin sling backs pack a powerful punch and offers balance to this color palate. This 3.1 Phillip Lim card holder is an unexpected way to make a fashion statement while this Alexis Bittar bracelet Saint Laurent tote serve as the perfect arm candy.

Stripe Situation

Screen shot 2014-02-19 at 12.26.09 AMThis is a perfect transitional look that will stylishly take you from work to drinks at that cool new hotel you’ve been meaning to visit. Although this is primarily a spring look you can totally winterize it by pairing black opaque tights. There’s nothing like a sharp white blazer to brighten up a gloomy New York Winter day 😦 This Helmut Lang blazer is the perfect layering piece for this fiesty Fendi work dress. These Saint Laurent cap toe pumps add a feminine twist to an originally masculine concept while the funky Nicholas Kirkwood flats give the look a slightly more casual look and serve as the perfect after work game changer. This fun Alexis Bittar bracelet  adds a bit of character and humor to the look. You can never go wrong with a good stud, these Demitasse earrings are the perfect way to go. This power Saint Laurent bag ties the entire look together and is the perfect conversation piece. Of course this fabulous bag will be stocked with beauty essentials like this Givenchy lip gloss and silver RGB nail polish.

Prints Please

Prints pleaseWho doesn’t love a good print? The amazing thing about prints is that they help breath new life into basic and often boring suiting. We have this classic dark charcoal Theory suit and white collared shirt that is easily funked up once layered with this python cashmere Equipment sweater. A little razzle dazzle goes a long way so we have this fun little Room Service  bracelet that you can layer on top of your Cartier watch or love bracelet as well as this thin Maison Boinet  belt to wear over the sweater on your natural waist. This Marc Jacobs tote is a power bag, it’s a sensible color that provides balance to all the prints we have going on. Camouflage began popping up in designer collections last year and are continuing into this year. The camo Valentino flats and python sweater work together  oddly enough because the have complimentary colors. Print on print is a huge trend that we are seeing just about everywhere. But for those that can commit to only wearing one print at a time, these Jimmy Choos are  a shoo in…. This rich navy color still adds a nice pop to the look.
