The BCBG Max Azria show hit runways this past Friday. Their geometric and uniquely tailored construction lend the collection toward work wardrobe styling. Though we don’t recommend the metallic tights in the office.
Overall the collection had a very serious feel with minimal color and more monochromatic looks. Softly draped necklines paired with a more fitted waist and soft skirts look feminine and fiercely chic all at once. We love the way these first two jersey dresses conform to the models while the velvet and silk piecing adds an artistic line.
The striped dress is a bit more casual with a dropped waistband and over-sized bow at the collar. Printing the stripes in grey and white has a tonal effect that keeps the look from being overwhelming. This white suit can practically be worn off the runway into the office. We are seeing a trend toward ready-to-wear collections walking down the runway instead of the more avant garde stylings. Though there are still plenty of pieces you wouldn’t rock to the club let alone the office. We’ll keep our posts to office friendly styles for you.
So how do you get the look now? Here are our top picks in Spring colors from BCBG Max Azria. The dresses sport geometric details and nipped in waists as shown on the Fall runway. Add a blazer or cardigan until the weather warms up or to beat the chill in your office.
Since we don’t wear dresses everyday, trying pairing these tops with dress pants for a business casual office. The bright rasberry style compliments the striped dress from the runways with it’s drop waist and collar details. This color is much more appropriate for Spring and would look equally nice with charcoal slacks or dark wash denim. Love the stripes? Try these wide leg seersucker pants. They are more casual and trendy so we do not recommend them for a conservative office. Also you may want to size up. Tight stripes are not flattering on any body type. It’s better to buy them a little loose and have them tailored to your unique shape. Top them off with this cap sleeved silk blouse comlete with draped ruffle details.
We love pouring over the runway looks every season but remember it’s Spring not Fall. Embrace these details from BCBG Max Azria in Spring colors and fabrics. Update your work wardrobe today. To see more from NY fashion week, check Workchic’s blogs daily.
