Stripes are big for SS16, so show Monday you mean business by mashing up a cute-casj shirt with a smart tailored mini. Tick yet another new-season box (gold star for you) by finishing your outfit with a nod to the future in pointed metallic block heels.
What’s commute-appropes and stripy all over? Paper-bag-waist shorts that are perfect for amping up the cute factor, that's what. Pair with a graphic white tee and layer a boxy pink suede jacket on top for a more chill twist on tailoring. Add black strappy sandals and a leather bag to up the profesh vibe.
Give humpday the hair-toss and swap out tailored trousers for some formal leather joggers (dare to go pink, if your work vibe is a little more laid-back). Add a gingham top and drape over a sleeveless blazer to smarten up the ensemble. Finish with clog heels and a white cross-body to smash that hot-weather style win.
Double denim on throwback Thursday? So necessary. Make it less Justin and Britney and more office chic by pairing a denim or chambray shirt with a twist (think romantic ruffle collar) with lighter-wash mom jeans. Add black suede mules for a SS16 slam-dunk and you’re ready to boss that afternoon meeting.
You’ve made it to the weekend (trooper!), so freshen up your casj Fridays by pairing a summer whites drop-waist dress with western buckle boots. Make like a street-style queen and throw on a khaki bomber jacket and studded leather satchel. Finish with a slick of berry lippie and you’re ready for your post-work bevs – plus, wherever the night takes you…
