What to Wear to a Work Meeting | Fall 2012

On the Agenda: What You Should Wear to Your Next Big Meeting

Getting your office attire just right is harder than merely throwing on the nearest pencil skirt and blouse. It's a balancing act of what looks good, what feels good, and quite honestly, what says, "I take my job seriously." We know the dress code varies depending on where you clock in, but one thing's for sure: you want to look polished and professional, and all without fading into mundane territory. Today's outfit solution comes to you courtesy of Caroline Issa's sophisticated take on layering. Her gray double-breasted vest dress hits below the knee so there's no question of indecency. More than that though, it's a classic Fall piece that when paired with her crisp white Peter Pan-collared top, provides a chic-meets-scholarly tone. Loud colors don't always bode well in the work space, but we're pretty sure you can get away with a pop of red via one slick skinny belt. The rest of the equation comes down to accessorizing, and that's a game-time decision to be made by you. We followed suit on her edgier cuffs, black shoulder bag, and metal cap-toe pumps, but if you need to take it down a notch, you can't go wrong with black pumps (of a reasonable height) and minimalist jewelry. Now that the ensemble agenda is set, you can shop the key pieces below.

Clockwise from top left: Lareida Josephine Shirt ($239), J.Crew Little Edie Purse ($168), Calvin Klein Sleeveless Boucle Utility Vest ($125), Guess by Marciano Ina Pump ($178), BCBG Max Azria Skinny Leather Belt ($38), House of Harlow 1960 Rocky Mountain Cuff ($109), Low Luv x Erin Wasson Key Wrap Cuff Bracelet ($105), Dannijo Tate Cuff Bracelet ($545)
