If you’ve read this blog for a little while, you might remember that the first several years of my career was spent in a corporate office where the men wore suits, so of course the the woman were expected to adhere to a dress code. It challenged me to incorporate my personal style into my weekday outfits and choose pieces that I could wear different ways after the workday.
That’s when I fell in love with Banana Republic. I could find versatile pieces that worked for the office and the weekend. This dress is an essential, and perfect for this time of year! It looks beautiful on its own or can be paired with a blazer or sweater for an extra layer. I think this would be such a great outfit for an office holiday party (or your guy’s if you’re attending his office holiday party), but then you can take the sweater off and add a fur stole or wrap for an amped up weekend holiday gathering. The best part about a classic black slip dress – it can be worn so many different ways, all year long.
And then of course, this pom sweater would be so cute with jeans too – I love mixing and matching!
