Everyone agrees that a navy blazer is office-appropriate, right? But how about we make it office-awesome? A pretty lace A-line skirt in a coordinating hue creates the seamless appeal of a suit without the stuffy factor and a retro-chic bow blouse holds its own when you take off the jacket. A classic pump in a bright coral hue livens up an otherwise minimalist color palette, while a roomy satchel holds all your 9-to-5 essentials. So easy!
Nothing says "I wanna have fun" like a sparkly sequin sheath, but when your after-hours plans are happening right after work (a dinner date, let's say), the added coverage of a tailored blazer can bridge the gap between professional and party-ready. Since navy coordinates perfectly with warm metallics and neutrals, we've opted for a palette of gold and cream and incorporated modern bangles, a beaded clutch, and a sleek ivory pump. Finish it off with a bold red pout and you're ready a truly happy hour.
For weekend activities that involve more than just lounging around — think brunch with the in-laws (or potential in-laws), an errand for work, or some upscale window-shopping — a blazer-and-tee combo is comfy yet classy. The secret to merging your work and weekend wardrobes? Balancing the tailored suiting staple with playful, offbeat accessories such as leopard-print smoking slippers and a deep-red crossbody bag. Choose your best-fitting pair of jeans to add some extra polish.
