What do you get when you take your best fitting skinny jeans, add an easy-going button down, throw on a nice cross-body handbag, and compete the look with a comfortable and trendy pair of leather sides?

What does your go-to weekend style usually consist of?
For the sophisticate, consider wearing a pair of white denim rolled-hem shorts with a crisp button down shirt for a polished and smart look. Or for a more causal approach, go for the relaxed and slouchy fit of cargo pants, which teams well with a classic tee.
Black cashmere sweaters. V-necks, turtlenecks, crew-necks. We all have one we champion – in a particular color, fabrication or neckline that is favored over others. Personally, I love black V-neck sweaters and as we are in the midst of sweater weather here are 3 different ways in which to style this timeless layering piece.
Off To A Meeting
For the office, add a blazer to your look of monochrome separates (a black V-neck sweater and black fitted jeans) offering structure and polish for the perfect balance of not being too overdressed, or too underdressed.
Out w/ The Girls
Going to see Gone Girl this weekend? For stylish and simplistic ease, a black V-neck sweater pairs well with faded grey off-duty denim and a pair of point-toe flats.
While running errands, look comfortable and well put together as you brave the brisk autumn air, by teaming a black V-neck sweater with fitted cropped pants, a cross body handbag and a fab pair of loafers – which is sure to bring an element of polish/sophistication to your weekend style.
What’s your favorite sweater?
This year it seems comfortable, functional shoes are having a moment (think Birkenstocks, and shower slides), that list also include, slip-on sneakers.
The slip-on sneaker as previously mentioned is comfy and functional, their elasticized tabs ensure a flexible fit and make them easy to slip on. Sleek and practical, the slip-on sneaker is super versatile, they’ll work well with countless amounts of looks – anything from dresses or mini-skirts to a great pair of boyfriend jeans, they’ll quickly become your go-to weekend style.
So today I received an email requesting some insight into what would be a good alternative to wearing flip-flops into the office on Casual Friday. Now this is a good inquiry mainly because, while flip-flops are practical (easy to slip on, tucks away nicely into a handbag), you look less than professional stepping into the office wearing a pair.
There are quite a few alternatives that are office-appropriate:
- Point-toed flats
- Open-toed flats
- T-strapped sandals
Another idea could include paring your best fitting jeans and a crisp button-down shirt with a pair of loafers, like the ones featured above. They’re simple, sophisticated, stylish, and offers up the casual put-togetherness that flip-flops does not in a work place environment. I also like ’em because they’re so multi-faceted, capable of taking you from the high-octane corporate world to running mundane errands on the weekends. Much like nude pumps, I believe that a great pair of loafers could also be a footwear staple for the young professional woman…
