All white is the definition of summer style – It’s cool, it’s fresh and it screams fashionista! I recently visited the Grand Opening of the brand new Tanger Outlets center in Columbus, Ohio and was honored to show off some of my favorite Tanger looks on Good Day Columbus! Below is one of my favorite outfits. My goal for Alexandria (one of my fabulous models) was to refresh her office look for summer in of course, all white. It can be difficult to dress for the office in the summer, with the fluctuating temperatures and busy after hours social schedules but I think I found the perfect solution.
First, let’s take a moment to acknowledge the gorgeous Alexandria. She was a beautiful girl, looking to up her work wardrobe! Now, we might not all have legs for days but lucky us, white pants give the illusion of length (insert happy dance)!
The pants were my first find and inspiration for the entire look. They’re the Ann Cotton Blend Straight Leg Pants from Ann Taylor Factory Store and were only $89. I used my exclusive grand opening 25% OFF coupon and came in just under $70 after tax. They will last for years and can be styled with an endless combination of looks.
I scored the next two pieces at LOFT Outlet. I was super excited about this white blouse. It’s a breezy chiffon fabric with subtle ruffles at the sleeves (stay tuned for this 2016 summer trend). This blouse works great on its own or can be worn underneath a nice tailored blazer for a more professional/conservative look. If your boss will go for it, I would try to go without the jacket – it’s so fresh! I also fell in love with this tassel necklace that tied in perfectly with the statement handbag (see below). It adds a great amount of summer color to the look, as well as a bit of texture. Ahh I wish I would have brought this one home!
Last but not least was this STUNNING handbag from Coach. It’s blue and yellow embossed leather python perfection! It’s a convertible satchel so it can be worn on the arm like Alexandria is showing or with a longer strap over the shoulder. The print itself is busy, yes. BUT it works perfectly against an all-white backdrop. Summer love!
To finish off the look, I put Alexandria in a simple nude heal from Francesca’s. This could easily be replaced with a more conservative shoe for the office, like a closed toe pointy pump.
