Business dress. Two words that invoke thoughts of boring suits and basic pumps. What to wear when your office demands that you err on the conservative side? Give the black-suit-colored-blouse combo a rest and venture into looks that are less cubical-drab and more professional-chic. Pair a Rachel Roy Signature dress with a tailored Rag & Bone blazer and Sergio Rossi ankle-strap pumps. Or, don an always sophisticated Diane von Furstenberg wrap dress with a utilitarian Botkier bag and delicate Gorjana jewelry. And if you must return to the classic black suit, make it an interesting one. Try pairing a Theory blazer with a ruched pencil skirt (like this one by Prabal Gurung) and an airy Equipment blouse.
Because dressing for the work week should be every bit as fun as dressing for the weekend.
