Today’s Coveted Working Look: The Skirt and Blazer

by Rachel Yeomans | May 30th, 2012   

I was truly put to the test yesterday morning when visiting the Lafayette 148 New York showroom. The task: Style two outfits for each month (August through October) that will be featured on the Lafayette 148 website beginning in August. These outfits needed to appeal not only to the Lafayette 148 New York customer, but also to working women who would wear these outfits. The pressure was indeed on.

I had such an amazing time, however I had the same issues as all of us working women have nearly every workday. I have a great blouse and skirt, but what about the cover-up? Or I have a great blazer…what do I wear it with? There is a reason we resort to the suit because it is just easier! I won’t spoil what I put together with Lafayette 148 New York (but I promise, I factored in both air conditioning as well as dress code), however I did want to share with you a great skirt to wear with that white blouse you have in your closet…and that blazer you can throw on either with it for your suit or on its own as that go-to cover-up we all are searching for before our morning coffee. The best part, both the skirt and blazer are on sale! Thank you Net-a-Porter.

Great! Can't wait to see what you come up with. I think I like the skirt better -- the jacket feels just a little busy to me, but it sure looks good with black pants.
