Stripes, while most commonly associated with nautical fashions are one of the most versatile spring/summer trends. I have everything from striped pencil dresses to striped T’s hanging in my closet, but I was lacking in the work attire department. One quick trip to Tanger sent me over the top. Here’s my favorite look of the day!
I didn’t want stripes to be the driver of the outfit, but certainly play a big part in the story. This entire look came from J.Crew Factory. Lucky me, I got to use the 10% OFF coupon in the coupon book (you can pick these up at Shopper Services). A little bit goes a long way, you guys. The more I save, the more I have to spend on extra goodies.
The first item I spotted when I walked in was this striped, boatneck top. It keeps me on trend and can be worn a zillion different ways – dark/light denim, black cigarette pants or a fancy pencil skirt, you name it.
Next up was this bright yellow/mint skirt. This is the perfect way to bring a little sunshine into the office! It’s also a great spring staple. You could wear it for years with a few versatile styling tips, like my advice for mixed-prints. Dress it up or dress it down – You’ll be the talk of the town.
Because the office can be a little chilly, I needed a jacket to toss over my striped top. I was originally thinking of keeping it classic with a black blazer, but I found this structured denim jacket and couldn’t resist. I’ve been stocking up on pretty high end pieces lately, so it was about time I purchased a few casual looks. Really, every piece of this outfit could be reworked. That’s my favorite part about it!
And lastly, accessories! In keeping with my head-to-toe J.Crew look, I couldn’t help but gravitate to their iconic bauble necklaces. Bright and bold – Just what I needed to make the skirt pop!
Ta da! There you have it… The PERFECT casual office look, incorporating a number of different spring trends and seasonless staples. If you’re interested in recreating a similar look, head to J.Crew Factory at Tanger today.
