With current fashion trends influencing most of the looks I put up on the blog, the business formal wear category gets pretty much neglected. Every now and then I try to create formal looks for the blog. With formal wear comes the norms and the code which leaves very little room for experiment. Back with another take on fashion’s very humble pinstripes. This minimalistic yet impactful pattern is a workwear staple and can be easily experimented in subtle ways.

These tailored, tapered fit cigarette trousers are the most flattering when it comes to work trousers. Wear them with simple pumps for a feminine look or oxfords / loafers to give them an androgynous spin. The pastel blue blouse in tune with summer hues hits the right professional-meets-fashion-forward note. The intricate details with tiered layers of teardrop lace and its semi-detached sleeves with a touch of tulle lining lend volume.

Keeping the make makeup basic I created a simple half up-do with side braid to add some interest to the look. Finishing off with a pair of matching pastel blue pumps and a handbag to cover all my essentials.
