The Dior fall 2015 show just happened in Paris and good news for all of us working ladies: There were a ton of outfits ready to inspire workaday dressing!
The thin turtleneck under a classic blazer is a look we can all replicate as early as next week, whereas the menswear-inspired vest dress is a trending piece worth keeping an eye out for while shopping. For all my ladies required to wear suits to work, pay attention to the newest version, done with cropped trousers and a double-breasted boxy jacket. How good would that look with a pair of fierce stilettos?
I know—the thigh-high latex boots aren’t office-appropriate, but cast your eyes on that coat. It’s got the same sharp tailoring that every professional topper should have, but the vivid stripe of yellow makes it stand out.
I’ll speak for the rest of the Northeast part of the country in saying I’ve had it up to here with coats, but bright prints like this are so alluring, I feel those totally-over-winter feelings melting away (ditto for the gorgeous coats we saw at Milan Fashion Week). Outerwear is one of the easiest places to show off personality in your professional wardrobe, so consider making a splash next year.
Ready for a fresh work dress to consider? There’s just as much professionalism in this sold-color mock-neck style with a pleated skirt as your most basic shift.
The curving lines spotted on other pieces really let loose on certain styles, including this long-sleeve dress. A bold, artsy print like this will work in most office environments, especially if you keep the rest of your outfit simple and neutral.
The feminine vibe that comes through in Dior’s couture presentations found a spot here too, and I adore this combo of pinks and red. The silhouette is nearly identical to work-ready dresses everywhere, but this one’s more intriguing thanks to the fact that it’s two pieces in different shades.
