Workwear: Corporate + Edgy – Day to Night

This dress – another one of the pieces I snagged from the Altuzarra for Target collection! I think it’s professional enough to wear to work but sassy enough to take to night with a great set of accessories and the simple addition of a leather jacket. 






This dress has one of my favorite color combinations – light blue and brown. Normally I would probably look for shoes and accessories in a brown color palette to match the skirt, but I could only find a black belt in my closet to fit the belt loops at the part of my waist where they fall on this piece. Once I saw the contrast of the black with the lighter colors of the dress, though, I really liked it! From that point, the accessories choices were pretty simple to bring this look to life. 

  • The dress has a gold zipper up the side, so I knew I’d choose all of the accouterments to have gold hardware that matched.
  • This led me right to the black booties with a gold buckle, the black purse with the gold studs and the leather jacket with the gold zipper
  • These choices are a little bit too edgy for work, but putting my hair up and adding the glasses brought it back to a professional level
  • The leather jacket was the key piece I threw on when I was ready to head out for drinks with a friend. I did not want to carry a change of clothes that day, so it sealed the deal by making the look punky for evening, as well as by matching the shoes, belt and bag.

Stay classy! XOXO,
