Stretch Pants

A career wardrobe essential, these classic Natalie Fit Stretch Pants help you look sophisticated and chic while keeping you comfortable.  Available in 5 colors from Brooks Brothers.  Flatter these ankle pants with a pair of simple black slingback pumps!

Casual office look for less

The look from Stylebop on the left makes for chic casual office attire yet the whole outfit costs over $4000.  I’ve put together a similar style for much less.  The cotton-jersey blazer is both comfortable and cozy.  Instead of a tiny clutch, grab a practical messenger bag to haul all your essentials.

Carla Bruni-Sarkozy’s style for less

From Jackie Onassis to Princess Diana to Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, these ladies are the proof that elegant and classy style is truly timeless.  Carla Bruni-Sarkozy donned many winning looks as the First Lady of France (soon to be former).  We are at least impressed by her impeccable French style.  Today we’ve created three inspired looks after her ever-sophisticated ensembles.  Each look can easily work for the office – with pieces at affordable prices!

Bruni-Sarkozy often sports flat shoes on public events (so she won’t tower over her rather short husband).  She has given us plenty of examples on how to look elegant in a pair of flats including the outfit below.  Here’s our budget version featuring a light blue cardigan, navy pencil skirt, bow flats (sale!) and black satchel (sale!).
