As a brand new college graduate, I am having the best time exploring business casual trends for the working world. My favorite look to have come across so far is a bold colorful blouse paired with chunky jewels and gems. Nothing makes a powerful statement quite like the fabulously trendy bib and collar necklaces.
Though I am absolutely thrilled to be a career-seeking woman, I am less enthused about the detriment that buying new clothes will do to my just-out-of-college budget. A woman’s wardrobe changes countless times in her life, and I think learning to buy multifunctional pieces is the easiest way for Fashionistas to save some money in the long run.
Trends are constantly changing and flowing in and out of style. Adding more basic and understated pieces to your closet will make your wardrobe lasting and versatile. A T-shirt can be worn hundreds of different ways, from laid back and casual to dressy and professional, whereas a neon skirt is pretty one-dimensional in terms of functionality.
This Fashionista’s look is simple and chic. Her royal blue blouse, black necklace and light cardigan are perfect for a day on campus, and these pieces are easy to integrate into a professional setting. Just swap the shorts and sandals for a pair of high-waist slacks and wedges, and you’re ready for a day at the office.
