Coming up with fresh and fun - but also work-safe - outfits can be challenging. It's so much easier to get stuck in a rut when it comes to office wear than things worn off the clock. So, I took a cue from tuxedo-style menswear and tied a long, thin gauzy black scarf around a collared neckline, and wore my patent brogues. The row of sequins, the silk texture of the skirt, and the skirt kept the look from being TOO masculine. This outfit has quickly become a bit of a go-to for me. I've also worn it with a pencil skirt, and sometime I'd like to try a patterned bowtie with a pleated skirt, or cigarette pants. Do YOU ever borrow ideas from menswear?
