This season is all about the lace up sweater. And I am on this train! I love them! I think they go with everything from weekend wear to work. They also add a little edge to every outfit. As a bonus, I think they are slimming with their V necks and lace-up details focused around the neckline.
For lace up sweater to be work wear appropriate, I tried to make sure the lace up details are not too over the top. I stuck with basic grommets and a lace up that blends in with the sweater - as opposed to a contrasting color. I also made sure the V neck was work appropriate. Some lace ups I have found should be left for your weekend attire if they have lace up than lace down... This sweater is available in three colors so it is sure to go with everything!
The other trend this season is the jogger pant. And don't mistake it, these joggers are not just for the gym. I have found some great joggers that I have given a lot of office wear. I think the key for the joggers to work for work wear rather than gym wear is the cut. They have to be a somewhat tailored jogger and they have to be a fabric that has a little more weight than a thin cotton. A thicker or shinier material helps give them the structure a work pant needs. These are actually satin which I think adds a little umph to it! I wear a large in the joggers - I think you can trust the measurements on the size guide.
So lace up and jog on to some fun workwear inspiration!
