Style Guide: A Take on Classics for the Lady

Casual Fridays at the office doesn’t necessarily mean that your attire has to be uninspired. The goal of any young professional should be to always dress to impress, with attention to detail when it comes to style and eye-catching colour combinations. 

Adding classic pieces like a patterned blouse (Topshop, $60) under a cable-knit sweater (J. Crew, $55) keeps your outfit suitable for the workplace while turning a few heads at the same time. The straight-edge professionalism of the sweater contrasts its edgy undertone, which will please the boss and style-savvy coworker alike. 

Accent the classic cuts with some modern hits, like bold cobalt blue skinnies (J. Crew, $108), rested atop an ankle boot (Topshop, $120) and finished off with a statement bib necklace (Forever21, $10). We’re going for gold in this case, but don’t be afraid to try out some eccentric pieces that complement other details of your outfit.

Complete the look off with a textured tote (Zara, $100). If your heading from the office to a night out, throw off that cable knit sweater and you have yourself a whole other look.
