Officewear-aug

Here are some office style updates from the Female magazine, June 2011 issue:

The long cardigan: Your long cardigan is the most versatile workwear piece in your wardrobe. Don't just save it for the casual weekend; layer it over a blouse and pencil skirt and keep the cardigan open. Make sure you keep the inside silhouette sleek or wrap a skinny belt around to enhance the hourglass look.

The cropped jacket: This classic cover-up can be worn over anything and complements the rest of your ensemble. Even if it's a casual Friday look, throw it over your dress or atop your jeans for just the right amount of polish. For a more formal look, pair it with a fitted shirt and tailored trousers.

The skinny belt: Don't underestimate a skinny belt! It can change your look and the silhouette of your outfit completely. Adding a skinny belt to an outfit creates layering interest, more waist-definition and keeps your look more streamlined. Work it over a blouse, dress, cardigan or jacket.

The printed shift: A great alternative to the plain, solid-colored shift and perfectly suited for the office, the prints on this simple shift give it an edge, especially when teamed with a cropped jacket and high heels. We recommend a scarf to add another dimension for day.

The dirndl (a full knee-length skirt that gathers at the waist):
 
- Create a streamlined look with a dirndl that flares less. Pair it with a structured cropped jacket for a stronger effect.

- Offset a heavy dirndl with a flowy, soft-print, feminine top, especially in delicate fabrics like chiffon and silk organza. Throw over a vest to smarten the look.

- Butterfly wings or a slinky kimono-style top creates an updated silhouette that balances out your top and bottom. Cinch your waist with a thin belt and finish with platform heels to add height to a heavy outfit.

- It's easy to look too casual with denim dirndl, so opt for a top with strong, structured lapels to make it work-ready. Soften the look altogether with a lightweight cardigan and belt it to define your waist.
