Can You Pull off Shorts At Work?

Optimized-P1060030Optimized-P1060025Optimized-P1060026You bet! There is a way to wear shorts to a work day – it may not be the obvious choice but it is a summer option, as long as you differentiate the look from your casual go-to weekend shorts. Instead, pair them with sturdy, solid pieces, so that the look is polished and professional.

I gave these Alice & Olivia shorts new life when I styled them for the office. I stepped out of my comfort zone with this look but isn’t that what fashion is about?

Try culottes. First spotted for fall, this fashion trend is still going strong for spring and one that you can pull off! This pant that hits at the calf looks like a skirt but is actually a trouser. And you can find it in various fabrics and textures. High-end brand Tibi has beautiful and original culottes – but you don’t have to pay high-end prices to own a pair. I didn’t want to invest in culottes until I saw this pair at Zara for $60. And now I want to wear them all the time!

How would I style culottes? Since the pants are on the wide side, I suggest pairing them with a slim-fitting top and heel. And don’t forget to accessorize!

My outfit: culottes, Zara; top, Alice + Olivia; sandals Coach; and of course, pearls!

Five days of denim: Day two. I give full credit to my friend, stylist Kim Naci, for creating this look for me. These are my slim-leg jeans from Vince, and I was unsure how to wear them until Kim showed me how to give them new life. Rolled up and paired with a structured blazer (which dresses it up a bit) mimics the cropped-style pant and shows off a bit of ankle, not to mention a great shoe. Continue reading
