Office work doesn't always need to be conservative.
This playful geometric blue print brings some life to a slow Tuesday. Paired with a V-neck knit, you'll be ready to meet with more 'traditional' clients while still letting your fun side shine through.
Blue is my favorite color, so this setup makes a strong impression on me. After work, slip off the V-neck knit into your navy two-way ruck and enjoy a few cocktails while letting the cache-coeur truly show off.
First impressions count, and I often think that a subtle, relaxing but professional appearance communicates confidence in the wearer. The black victory dress brings a classy elegance that is sure to grab everyone's attention. The short Kanazawa cardigan relaxes the look and keeps it cool, but it can always be slipped off for a 'second impression' if needed. The tote bag ensures you have enough carry space for all your essentials without slowing you down.
Whenever I go to a wine bar or a classy hotel bar in Tokyo, there are classy looks everywhere, with elegant black dresses or chic styles because 'it's an expensive place'. Sometimes it's just nice to stand out and bring some color to the bar, and this dress definitely gets attention as you make your way to your counter seat. The red tote bag will have just enough space for your evening drinks essentials, and the color will pop on top of the dark wooden counter bars we often see. The stole completes the look as the air conditioning can sometimes be a little strong. This setup is all about impact - all eyes on you!
Casual & Relaxing
I imagined this look for a peaceful Sunday in the local neighborhood. The A-line dress beautifully complements most figures, while still remaining subtle. It's great for a cup of tea on the terrace of a local tea house on a nice spring day, and if the wind picks up, the long cardigan can be slipped on to keep you protected. The cardigan's deep pockets mean you won't need a bag with this setup - plenty of space for the essentials. Casual elegance with a strong hint of femininity - the perfect Sunday setup!
