Classy and avant-garde work wear
I'm a huge proponent of putting together fun, interesting, yet professional work outfits for the office. For example, this navy sheath dress from Black Halo is bursting with potential. Its demure length and cap sleeves are classy enough for that important work meeting, but slim tailoring and a unique V-neckline hint at high fashion. I love the jagged pleats of cloth at the bust that give this dress a jolt of avant-garde innovation. While the summer heatwave continues, I'll wear this dress simple and unadorned with heels, but come fall, I'm planning on pairing it with stockings (this gorgeous Wolford herringbone style is one of my favorites!) and the perfect fitted blazer.
