ALL IN THE DETAILS: Dainty Neutrals

I couldn’t help but stop and stare at this Fashionista’s classy and elegant outfit. It stood out from the sea of casual sweaters and worn out sneakers. This Fashionista was on her way to a meeting that required business casual attire. Business casual is an unfamiliar territory in fashion for most of us, so I thought that this would be the perfect opportunity to take a closer look at her outfit.

This Fashionista interpreted business casual into a more feminine look, starting with a simple white chiffon blouse with a tie-able ribbon at the neck. I absolutely love the detailing of the ribbon because it adds an element of interest to the collar and stands out more than the typical white button-down blouse.

She kept the color palette neutral and went with a beautiful black and white patterned skirt to match with her top. The A-line cut of this skirt emphasizes her figure wonderfully by cinching the smallest part of her waist and adding more volume to the bottom of her skirt. This is a perfect way to accentuate your figure in a super flattering manner. I also loved the detail in the pattern of the skirt because it brings out the crisp white color of her white top nicely, but also manages to add dimension.

To pull together the whole outfit, this Fashionista stuck with blush pink platform heels with a unique strapping across the ankle and a camel colored faux leather backpack. Using a mini backpack instead of a purse is a more fun and comfortable alternative to the standard oversize purse. Her silver earrings are subtle and add onto the feminine feel of the whole outfit.

Next time you need inspiration for a casual, laid back meeting, take some inspiration from this Fashionista and gravitate towards neutrals and flattering silhouettes.
