Due to the pandemic, many physical offices are still closed including mine. However, for the very few times where I have to come in, this is one of my go-to choices. In a way, co-ords or matching two piece set take out the guess work of ‘ what to wear with this top or bottom.’
Office environment often calls for conservative neutral colors such as black, blue, tan, and white. However, with the right shade and style, we can still incorporate other less typical colors, such as pink (one of my favorites), even in a full coordinate set.
Because this outfit is fully striped, I thought I would also write about some tips to pick an easy stripe clothing item! Some friends of mine expressed that stripes are not their favorites sometimes. I totally get it — stripes could be too bold, unflattering, or hard to style.
Stripes in a complementary color combination or monochromatic/ soft colored ones like the one I was wearing here could be a great choice.
More often, vertical stripes are considered more flattering than horizontal stripes. I also notice that I prefer skinny lines in stripe patterns. This makes the clothing items less busy and easier to coordinate.
Something, like this bow or a belt, could break up the pattern and add an interesting focal point.
Last but not least, accessorizing.
I hope you are staying safe.
