We love Jill Stuart’s feminine dresses and printed chiffon tops. This season she added a rock star edge with a collection inspired by “iconic women of music”. Leather, fringe, and ruffles supported both the edgy and her more traditional girly looks. We slid more toward the latter for styles that could translate into the office. Unless you’ll be going on tour this season, we recommend the following runway looks for your work wardrobe inspiration.
Shades of grey stripes are still strong and professional but come off more approachable then all black. We love the shapes created here. The bust-line on the dress gives an updated bow feeling without the extra flounce. The second look’s ruffled party skirt is brought back into reality with a sophisticated striped jacket. Paired with dress pants this jacket would be business casual any day of the week. Though we don’t recommend shading your eyes with a hat in the office.
Both of these looks have excellent inspiration too. Chiffon blouses can look professional tucked into tailored trousers. Puffed sleeves are still a big trend, and a nice way to add a little flair to an otherwise basic outfit. While we wouldn’t wear this white dress to the office, the details can be dissected into workable looks.
These two tops from Jill Stuart have the bow details at the waist and bloused sleeves as shown on the fall runway. Shirts are selling quickly; the green is available in size 0 and 2, the grey in sizes 4 and 6. We recommend wearing a cami underneath this top to avoid any unwanted skin views. Black and grey stripes are runway inspired and worn with tailored high waisted pants, ready to strut through the hallway.
This chiffon top pairs the gray stripes with the details of the chiffon top seen on the runway. You’ll be looking Workchic and runway ready in this blouse. This printed top would look perfect layered under a boyfriend style blazer; though since it’s on sale only a size 4 remains. Suede lace up ankle boots will complete your Jill Stuart look.
