Workwear Capsule Wardrobe Part II: The Khaki Blazer

Hi everyone, 

Today we are having Part II of our workwear capsule wardrobe. Before we move forward, please click here if you haven’t read the Part I of this series yet then come back and meet us here.  So to further our discussion I will today cover the Khaki blazer as announced in Tuesday blog post and also further our chat a little bit more about the subject. Also, come back on Saturday to wrap up our first workwear capsules. Right on time for Fall :-)

When it comes to workwear, professionalism is most important to me, because people perceive you in a certain way based on how you present yourself. So here’s a few tips that you can follow so you always look classy and well put together: 

1- Invest in high quality handbags. Any simple and cheap outfit will look like a thousand box if accessorize it perfectly. I like to invest in affordable luxury when it comes to handbags, shoes and belt. My favorite brands for handbags are: Zac Posen, Kate Spade & Tory Burch. Also, Amazon features some high quality leather bags that mimic some of the high end designers. They are within the same price range as those affordable luxury ones or cheaper. 

2- Invest in some good quality of high heels shoes. It's important to keep them classy and ensure that they are comfortable. You should be able to walk around all day in them without any pain. If heels aren't your things, flats with a pointed toe are an elegant alternative.  Although, the pointed toe is classier, you can go for the toe you want but please keep it classy (avoid those big buckles, bows etc…).

3- Same goes for belt. A classy leather or vegan leather belt will last you a long time if not forever and will also elevate your outfit.

4- Jewelry: I can't put the emphasis enough on investing in quality . They will last you longer and you will end up spending less in the long run  (same goes for all of the above) If your budget doesn't allow you to invest in high end jewelry such as 14k -18k gold and up, go silver or gold plated. They also have silver option filled with gold. Pearls are great alternatives to pair with your crew or round neck blouse. It also looks good with boat neck. Always follow the rules to play around with your statement pieces. 

5- Casual Friday: Friday is a day of work. Although most of us opt for more relax looks on Fridays, you should always keep in mind whether it’s Monday, Tuesday or Friday, the work environment remains the same. 

Wear what makes you feel your best, most confident self, because that’s what power dressing is all about.

    1. Hey Shelbee, thank you - You should try the khaki blazer with a top in a color that flatter your skin tone underneath. It might make a difference.
