STYLE GURU STYLE: The Working Girl

July 14th, 2015 at 2:00am

Alessandra Rich’s spring 2015 ready-to-wear collection is slimming and elegant. The collection had lots of lace and fitted tops. The hair was mostly straight while the makeup was clean and natural looking. The big collars showed off broad shoulders and gave the collection somewhat of an ’80s vibe, yet some outfits had high-waisted jeans and pumps, which still gave the collection a modern day working girl feel.

With the Alessandra Rich spring 2015 ready-to-wear collection in mind, I am wearing a dark gray button-up shirt tucked into a pair of high-waisted jeans. On my feet I am wearing nude pumps. I am only five feet tall so the high-waisted jeans and pumps combination really enhances my legs and make me look taller. To tie my wardrobe together, I also have a light pink clutch and dark gray nail polish. I kept my color palette simple and professional in hopes to give off a working girl vibe.

As we prepare to enter the work force, we must prepare our closets as well. Nude pumps are a mandatory staple piece and can be found through any brand. But for our age, Express is a great place to find affordable and trendy pumps as well as other work-appropriate outfits. Express is the perfect gateway brand into the professional working world. You can find all your staple business pieces there without having to give up all your style, which we all know is hard.

Get My Look: 1. Nude pumps. 2. A light pink wallet. 3. High-waisted jeans.
