Every true Fashionista knows that it’s better to be overdressed than underdressed. That doesn’t mean you should show up to a bonfire in a ball gown anytime soon, but when choosing an outfit, take extra time to distinguish yourself. Adding sophisticated details to a casual look is a guaranteed way to break the outfit norm.
This Fashionista has the perfect business casual look for spring. She wears a crisp black blazer, with a slightly relaxed fit in true boyfriend-form. The rolled cuffs reveal a pinstripe lining, and the blazer is adorned with distressed golden buttons. Underneath, she wears a chiffon blouse with an abstract floral print. Her blue jeans with zipper-details are paired with black pumps. This Fashionista accessorizes with a bright pink, patent purse that accentuates the tones in her blouse. A chain bracelet and a woven bracelet hang from her wrist, and she wears an Irish Claddagh ring. What is unique about this look is the mixing of casual and formal pieces. The blouse and jeans are staple pieces, but when paired with the blazer, heels and a fun purse, this look becomes a unique head-turner.
This Fashionista wears the Heart Tag Chain Bracelet from Tiffany & Co., but any simple chain-link bracelet can achieve the same polished look. Pandora offers a similar woven bracelet as the one pictured on this Fashionista. The mixing of these two accessories mimics the casual yet sophisticated tone of this look.
