Fall Office Chic

Pair this outfit with a white tee or a white button down and you will be set. This is the kind of outfit where you can switch the pants out for dress, keep the shoes and jacket, and again you will be set. I love outfits where you can find multiple uses for it. Plus the jacket gives you a classic Chanel type look that you can wear again and again. Photos from the various links below.

TREND Report: tribal prints

The tribal trend has been a staple over the past few seasons but was especially popular this Resort season and will continue to be a trend through the fall.  With easy-to-wear tribal printed pieces like maxi skirts and structured dresses, this trend has never been easier to work.  If you’re feeling a little less adventurous and aren’t too keen on rocking a large print, try pairing skinny jeans and a white t-shirt with a pair of ethnic-inspired heels like those from Tory Burch or Proenza Schouler.  Accessories are also a great way to work the tribal trend and designers like Tom Binns have put out amazing designs that work great with any outfit, tribal or otherwise.

Her style choices are great too.  All you have to do is Google her red carpet pics. I think it is great that teen actresses are getting into fashion these days. Remember when teen stars dressed like this. Yuck! Anywho, what do you think of the ad? Photo from BlackBook.
