sweater weather is officially here. this time of year, it’s all about layers. and we all know i’m a big fan of blazers popped over a button-down. so guess who is in hog heaven? as far as i’m concerned, it doesn’t get much better than when a blazer is combined with a sweater. especially if that sweater jacket has fab details like a marled finish.
today’s ootd gets down to business with a glen plaid skirt and white button-down. add a crewneck in a contrasting color, and it’s instant nine-to-five casual. but pop the sweater jacket over this ensemble, and it’s transformed into office chic. now all that’s left are the accessories to keep this look modern and fresh. block heels are on trend and ever so comfortable. but let’s amp up the outfit with a pair of red patent leather. a black tote is always office-appropriate. but remember, the devil is in the details. so look for one that’s slightly different from the pack. like this patent leather tote with a long strap.
