Working in the world of fashion, e-commerce and technology means that some days it’s appropriate (even necessary!) to wear things that were definitively not part of my work wardrobe during my days in traditional corporate America. This look is a prime example, though really only in terms of the skirt length. Mini skirt aside, the blazer, tights and classic feel of the look would have been perfect for an average day at the office. For a more conservative spin, swap the mini skirt out for a pencil skirt like this one or this one.
If you’re looking for some fantastic basic turtlenecks, these are my absolute favorite. They look great worn solo, but the super fine ribbed knit fabric also allows you to layer them comfortably under anything (i.e. the ivory blazer I’m wearing today) without feeling like you’re wearing football pads. They also come in a million colors and are super affordable. I have them in navy, black, white and red. Two huge thumbs up.
As we’ve fallen into the depths of winter here in NYC, I’ve gotten tons of questions lately about my favorite tights and pantyhose. Today I’m wearing the brand Spanx, and these are definitely among my favorite pairs of opaque tights. I have a few additional favorite brands that I typically gravitate towards, but am going to do a bit more research testing out different kinds before I write up a post with my recommendations. Until then, I’m curious, do you have any particular favorites? Please share in the comments below if there’s a brand you really love!
