Reed KrakoffWhile I work in an office that certainly isn’t strict on corporate dress code, the bohemian, shabby-chic style I tend towards isn’t exactly always appropriate. I’ve been trying to get out of a style rut lately, and have found myself leaning towards outfits that still speak to my comfy aesthetic but have a more polished element. It’s kind of a running joke: If there’s an oversized sweater up for grabs, you better believe I’ll take it. On a Sunday, the outfit is completed with leggings (old habits die hard). But during the work week, it’s my goal to balance the chunky comfort with sleekness, exemplified by the Reed Krakoff outfit above. I recently unearthed a leather mini that I had forgotten about, but I’d really love to add a pencil skirt to my arsenal. And I love the blue/brown combo here–it’s a bit unexpected but somehow completely works. That skirt would go with anything, really: a white fisherman sweater; even a t-shirt.
