Careerwear: pre-Fall ’11 (images)

If you’ve been following our blog since birth (April), you probably understand that our main audience is the “profession-elle” if you will (read:  girls who work Full-time jobs for a living).  Hence, a lot of the “fashion” on our sight serves the girl in the workforce.

We have nothing against trendy, teenage styles, however, there are too many blogs on the web that cater to the “trendy”.  Classic-styled girls can be “bloggers”, too!

Secondly, the corporate woman might be as stylish as the trend-setting teen, but her style needs to be a bit more restrained and professionally-appropriate.

One way of expressing individuality in a professional environment is with color.  Greys, Navies and Beiges aren’t the only colors welcome in Corporate America.  However, these neutrals are necessary “anchors” for brighter pops of color (which, left on their own would be too loud and distracting).

Corporate-Cathy you are not!  Differentiate yourself.

This fall, we see a lot of color-blocking.  Reds and oranges grounded by black, stone, and gray is a popular palette (below).

A solid deep fuschia dress (a la Zac Posen) conveys power and femininity in a polished way (below):

Or, what about a bright orange sheath to take you from bright summer months to autumn (below)?

Don’t like sleeveless?  How about a shift dress in pumpkin (below)?
