Winter Whites for the 50’s, 60’s & 70’s: The Business Version
Quote of the day: “Don’t look back. You’re not going that way.” Devon Gibbons
Continuing with the theme of winter whites, we’ll try the business version today. Even if you are lucky enough to be retired, these combinations are conservative looks that can work well in many situations like an outing to the theater or a meeting with any professional. For the dressy and then casual versions of this subject see Styling Discussion 1 (here) and 2 (here).
50’s Winter Whites (the monochromatic look): A nice relaxed pant and button up shirt would be a great uniform if your company subscribes to the business casual dress. With white or ivory pants, it’s nice to have them slightly looser so you don’t see everything underneath. And by looser, I don’t mean baggy…just not real tight!
Pants: Sharagano (similar here)~~Blouse: Ann Taylor (similar here)~~Tank under: (similar here)~~Shoes: Pazzcc (similar here)~~Belt: Ann Taylor (similar here)~~Necklace: (similar here)~~Earrings: (similar here)
60’s Winter Whites (the partial look): A nice sweater can be instantly upgraded to the office with a pencil skirt and pumps. I think you should also keep accessories simple and clean if you are in an office setting.
70’s Winter Whites (the accessories look): Since a jacket is the obvious pick for the office, the winter white scarf acts to tone down the busyness of the tartan plaid. A small, silky scarf is perfect for this situation. If yours seems too big, then you can tuck it into the blazer and pin it so it stays put!
