Hey fashionistas!

I’m really excited about all the business casual content I have coming your way! .

For starters, I want to show off this outfit and talk about trends and how to incorporate them into the office. How to dress business casual can be tricky, and showcasing your personal style while looking appropriate can get kinda stressful. But the beauty of the times right now is that MOST fields have gotten more lenient in terms of dressing for the job. As women, we don’t all have to show up in the horrendous 80s-style pant suits to look like a professional woman! There are tons of ways to switch up your business casual chicness and work with the trends you’re loving!

Take this outfit for example. The boyfriend jeans look is a FAVORITE of mine, and it doesn’t need to be reserved for the weekend or mall run. Matching it with a black top, which is really an effortless look, add a colour coat to it, this would be 100% suitable for business meetings, conferences, a day at the office, etc. Plus, it can seamlessly be styled into post-work drinks AND not lose my personal style.

This look is all about balance while incorporating a piece I love (the coat). Since the jeans is somewhat trendy and not a classic business piece, I made sure to off-set the flow with a tailored coat.

Adding a statement necklace on top also streamlines the look (mixing business + cute trends from top to bottom), so don’t be afraid of a little jewelry! Shoe wise, I kept my toes covered since that’s more appropriate, but you’ll see that I’m still getting away with totally cute (and somewhat sexy) heels! You don’t have to look/feel frumpy just because you have to dress a certain way!
