Elegant Office Wear

What’s old is new again.  Hourglass silhouettes, full circle skirts, fit and flare dresses, tie front blouses, and pencil skirts are everywhere we turn as of late, thanks in large part to the hit show Mad Men and its fictional office of Sterling Cooper.

But can these retro shapes translate into your everyday office wardrobe staples?  You bet they can!  A modern spin on a classic can be elegant and functional all at once.  A fitted cap sleeve top, circle skirt, and simple pumps would work in almost any office setting.  Put a modern twist on the circle skirt by choosing one with a bold geometric print.  A fit and flare dress in a rich color or texture paired back to a cardi or blazer is fresh and ultra girly.

The pencil skirt is already a staple in many a closet.  Pair your favorite pencil skirt, be it black, herringbone, or pin-striped with a jewel toned silky tie front blouse and pumps.
