‘Tis the season to start dressing like grown-ups. As June rolls around and we all embark on summer internships, most Fashionistas might find themselves a bit lost and confused in this new world of conservative work/office attire. As we all start “real” jobs, the cut off shorts, tanks, and mini-dresses will sadly sit in our closets from the hours of 9 am to 5 pm on weekdays, as they wait to be thrown on once again for weekends and nights out. Although internships call for a wardrobe shift for many of us, there is no reason why we still can’t have a little (or a lot) of fun with our newly professional attire!
This week’s street Fashionista did a fabulous job of combining a tight black pencil skirt with a loose grey sweater tee featuring this week’s trend: embellished shoulder details.
The beading and sequin detail of this top gives this basic work outfit instant flair, while still maintaining a sense of sophistication. The subtle shoulder details also add structure to the shoulders, a fantastic way to add shape to a smaller frame. Tops with shoulder detail are a great way to show off your personal style, while still dressing work-appropriate.
Not to mention, they provide endless options for quick work to nighttime apparel changes.
Pair a shoulder embellished top with a cute mini-skirt or high wasted shorts, heels, gold bangles and some rockin’ earrings and get ready to hit the town for Friday night happy hour!
