As I mentioned in a previous post, I want to try doing at least one professional outfit per week. I plan to style these looks for both casual and corporate offices so that they’re all-inclusive. I’ve mentioned several times that I’m crazy about scarves and have a ton of them. Over the course of many posts, I’ve worn scarves in several different ways. Well today I’d like to talk about dressing professionally with scarves. If you work in an office that requires professional dress, then there are ways you can style a scarf to look sophisticated and professional. Even though I’ve always had the benefit of working in a casual office, I know exactly what I would wear if I were required to dress more professionally. I’ve always found it especially elegant when a woman wears a scarf draped over one shoulder. It’s something that I saw Diahann Carroll wear once and she’s a major style idol of mine. If you’re looking for a way to stand out in your office, then this is definitely it!
I got the Alex Marie Suit I’m wearing today from Dillard’s. They have a great selection of professional clothing that you can mix and match with other pieces. The sales at Dillard’s are also fantastic! Right now, you can get 50% off of permanently reduced items throughout the store. That includes the suit I’m wearing today! Unfortunately you won’t be able to find the scarf I’m wearing at Dillard’s. I got it a few years ago at H&M. When it comes to finding a standout scarf to wear with your suit, try doing something safe but a little off the cuff. I love print mixing so to make it safe for the office, I went a little more subtle with the patterns. Since my plaid pants weren’t too bold, I felt safe mixing the pattern with my floral scarf which also has plaid in it.
Here’s my look:
