Now let’s add a few miles to your fall style . We’ll dial up your confidence too, by updating your existing professional basics without appearing over the top or that you are trying too hard with seven key add ons:
THE BLOUSE – Add a blouse with interesting architecture or detail. Bell sleeves or lace will do, and pussy bows are the cats meow. Your blouse can be layered, but it can stand on it’s own nicely too when tucked into a simple midi-pencil skirt, or wide leg pants if you are a risk taker.

THE NEW SUIT – An updated to the classic staple. The new suit has incredible fabric, interest, and architecture.

RED MATTER- Red is fall’s biggest shade, and boots in the fiery hue are the must have item for fall 2017. Patent finishes and kitten heels are also prevalent – so a red patent kitten heel – is the perfect answer to 9-5 style, with comfort to navigate after hours plans with a smile.

SOMETHING VELVET – Colored velvet is fall’s most luxurious trend. Ditch the basic black and opt for deep red, rich blue or gold. A top or blazer is an easy way to interpret Velvet at work, wether it’s the corner office or a communal space.

THE BOMBER- As Millenals and Generation Z become more intoxicated with Eighties hip-hop trends, the bomber endures on the runway as a staple for fall, and recently interpreted at work in place of a jacket, paired with a sheath dress or pencil skirt.

SHADES OF WHITE – Head to toe white is a sophisticated career look this season. For some women in leadership, that may be a recipe for coffee related disasters as they negotiate their daily hustle, which sometimes includes young children. Try a fresh white boot – or handbag and save the dry cleaning trip.
