An Inspired Business Chic Look

  1. Diane says:

    You have plenty of beautiful scarves that you could have put around the neck of your sweater.
    The look is too stark. I would love the look if you accessorized!

  2. Love this outfit. Is so classic.

    Fabulous – looked good ten years ago & it will look good ten years from now! The beauty of this type of look is that it’s so simple as it but there is so much potential with adding a scarf or necklace, etc. Also, this look is great no matter what is happening!

      i just love a classically classic outfit. and there are so many ways to accessorize. sometimes i’m in the mood for bling. and sometimes i like the less is more look.

  4. SuZi says:

    I agree with Diane. Love the outfit but the neckline is too stark. Needs a scarf or a gold necklace to match the earrings.

    • Beth Djalali says:

      then go for it! sometimes i’m all about accessories and sometimes i’m all about minimalism. actually, this outfit is part of my classic series on Instagram. Amal Clooney was my inspiration. guess what? no scarf, no necklace. she was all about simplicity. but style is always about personal preference so go ahead and add the gold necklace if you choose.

  5. Dee says:

    Wow Beth, as a retired business professor can I just say that this outfit is perfection. I agree that sometimes less is more (and this is coming from someone that is often called the accessory queen 😉
    I love your daily suggestions and inspiration. Thank you for putting a smile on my face today.

    • Beth Djalali says:

      thanks so much for stopping by! accessories are key as the accessory queen knows full well. but i love to mix things up. keeps things interesting, modern, fresh, and relevant.

    You make these pants look fabulous. Your legs appear to go on forever. As a short girl, I am not a fan of the pants that are hemmed above the ankle or the look of booties with skirts. To me, the longer hem length here is a winner.

  7. Lisa says:

    Your spectators are spectacular!

  8. Maeve says:

    Am I the only one who worked in business? Business chic didn’t exist: you wore either suits or business casual when poss. Your outfit is the later, although I never saw a long duster even at conferences – maybe it’s a new thing? I like it on you but being petite, I’ll stick with the classic blazer / jacket. Gold bracelet, no watch, b/c … that’s what my mobile is for ☺

  9. Judy C says:

    Love this outfit Beth. So classic. Thinking about that Lagos bracelet for her 40th birthday.

  10. Love it,love it
    You look very e!egant and classic
    Can’t not find a pair of block heel that I can wear
    Thank you for sharing

    Hi Beth…….thanks for the info on the beautiful X earrings. They are on their way.
    Looking forward to your blogs this week.

    Love this look! (The all neutrals remind me of Carolyn Bessette Kennedy). As much as I’ve enjoyed wearing my WFH athleisure wear, I’m ready to start dressing up a bit again. This looks polished and is easy to pull together – one of my favorite combinations.

    Love love love this look. I think it’s one of my favorites of yours. Everything works together perfectly!!
