Red and Black Chicness

corporate outfit ideas

Blazer | Pants | Pumps | Handbag | Watch | Lipstick

Eileen Fisher’s ponte stretch pants are a workwear must-have to say the least.  Don’t you just love dressy pants that feel like lounge wear?  An easy pull-on fit and soft stretch fabric will give you all day comfort while a sleek silhouette keeps your work look polished.  Even better, they are machine washable!

Go ahead ~ go for red!  It’s hard to argue the chic contrast of red & black.  And my favorite red blazer is this one (with a hint of orange) under $80 that will look down right stylish when worn with the black pants.  And when it comes to red lipsticks, I prefer them sheer.

For accessories, black pumps and a leather satchel are foolproof.  Don’t forget to slip on a pair of sheer black tights to harmonize the look.  By the way, these breathtaking Michele watches are customizable with interchangeable bracelets & straps.

houndstooth sweater outfit

After weeks of freezing temperatures, the weather has been delightful in the low 70’s over the past couple of days where I call home.  It’s hard for me to stay indoors in such gorgeous weather so I took a quick break yesterday to get some sun and fresh air.

The houndstooth print sweater (on clearance!) that I’m wearing is a men’s sweater from Kohl’s.  I like certain knits and pullovers from men’s lines due to their easy, simple styles.  This pullover is also affordable in a black & white print which will look chic paired with white pants & taupe ankle boots.  Complete the look with this watch (mine is smaller version) & this $7.49 necklace.
