LOOK #1 - Blazer + Jeans
Edgy and chic, this outfit is ideal for those laidback days at work or a slightly dressed up meal with friends.

Tip to Dress It Up: Accessorize it, ladies. Statement necklace, bright heels, layered bracelets and a bold clutch.

Tip to Dress It Down: Think casual, but keep it chic with a burn-out tee, boyfriend jeans, top handle shoulder bag and flat sandals.

LOOK #2 - The Short Suit
This shorter version of the “power suit” is all business on top and sexy on bottom. Shorts have definitely made a comeback, and they’re even suitable for work as long as they are appropriate length and fit. Pair it with your favorite power-pumps, so you can conquer your day!

Tip to Dress It Up: Jazz up those shorts! It’s all about color and texture, so either pick metallic tweed, neutral charmeuse or black leather. Also, a fitted short will give you the best-polished effect.

Tip to Dress It Down: Opt for a looser fit in a cummerbund, high waisted or trouser short. For fabric, pick basic tweed or linen.

LOOK #3 - Bohemian Maxi + Blazer
Sweeten up your look with a romantic, long-sweeping maxi dress! Better yet, choose a maxi with a boho-print to add whimsy and color. Finish the look with platform heels.

Tip to Dress It Up: Since this look is on the casual side, add drama to the hair, makeup and jewelry. A colorful pout, sultry smoky eye and chunky gold jewelry will definitely make this look unforgettable for a night out! Also, there’s no rule that says you need to keep the blazer on all night. Shimmy it off to show off those shoulders and dance the night away!

Tip to Dress It Down: Simple as pie, accessorize with natural wood pieces such as a bangle, wooden platforms or a straw hat. A braided belt or flats would give the look a casual sophistication. Also, keep the makeup soft and natural with just a little mascara, blush and tinted lips.
