Re-Work Your Office Wear

All this talk of fall fashion is making me want new clothes for work! I definitely need something fresh and fun, but office appropriate. Here's what I found:

It all started when I fell in love with these Ya-Ya George flared leg pants from ShopBop. On sale for $177, they're the polar opposite of the new pencil leg jeans.

To see how it all turns out,

Since this fall is all about balancing proportions, I wanted a perfectly fitted top to balance the flowing pants, and no one does fitted better than menswear specialist Thomas Pink. This beautiful tailored herringbone french cuff shirt is $130, and (provided you don't stain it!) will be in your work-week rotation for years to come.

To further emphasize the trendy fall menswear look, I added this classic grey BCBG Max Azria Nelly Vest available from Nordstrom for $108.

It's hard to see the vest on the model, but here's a close-up shot of the heather and grey fabric.

Accessories are always a great way to introduce pattern and color. Because of the basically neutral colors in the outfit, there are a million different pairs of shoes that could work well with this outfit (including some I probably already have in my closet!), but I decided to go out on a limb with this pair of Miu Miu tweed pumps available from Bluefly for $216.

This WA Studios beaded necklace with filagree pendant echoes the autumn colors of the shoes and adds a little feminine flair to the menswear look. Available at Bloomingdale's for $148.

New outfits don't always have to mean new handbags, but if you've got some extra cash, check out this Fendi B. Bag from Bag, Borrow or Steal. If I had banked what Paris made last year, I'd definitely throw it into the pot!

Added up (minus the Fendi bag, of course), the outfit comes to about $779. Uh oh... sounds like I need to get back to work!

I've owned two Thomas Pink shirts and loved them! They are beautiful and made in Ireland. The cotton was so silky I felt like a million bucks wearing it.
