I wanted to show you what I wore for a professional event today! I know that it can be difficult to figure out what to wear for professional or business casual events; you want be dressed appropriately for the event and in a way that fits your age. Check out my video of this outfit on Youtube!
Pearl Studs, Necklace, and Bracelet: Gift
Gold and Crystal Bangles: PacSun
Gold Filigree and Faux Pearl Bracelet: eBay
Skirt: Charlotte Russe
Heels: Calvin Klein/Dillard's
Cardigan: Old Navy
I chose the red v-neck top because it has a really pretty and vibrant color to dress up this outfit. After all, dressing up like this doesn't have to be completely boring! It's definitely important to spice it up and bring out your personality while still looking professional. I love how the v-neck on this shirt stops at an appropriate length and doesn't expose too much cleavage. The ruched detailing at the neckline also adds an extra flair and makes the shirt much more feminine.
I chose the black pencil skirt because it came with a simple belt that really emphasizes the waist and breaks up the torso from the legs. Pencil skirts, a classic choice for professional dress, are excellent for defining your figure and playing up your curves. It's also a great choice for this outfit because it hits at the knees and shows a respectable amount of leg.
I love the black pointy-toed Calvin Klein heels in this outfit! They are so classy and work great for elongating the legs even though they aren't nude pumps.
Going along with the classy look of the clothing in this outfit, I chose to accessorize with my pearls. I love how they just pull together the whole look and make me feel glamorous! I had to wear my bangles to add some sparkle. I like how the crystals in the bangle really shine and contrast the simplicity of the pearl bracelet. I'm really loving the bangle, pearl bracelet, bangle combo! I'm also wearing my filigree bracelet on the other arm because it's so little and dainty that it would just be covered entirely if I wore it on my arm with the bangles and pearl bracelet. If I don't want to clink and make noises throughout the day via the bangles, I would totally just wear the filigree bracelet.
Top it all off with a simple white cardigan and you're ready to go! I love how this cardigan has a cropped length so that it can pair very nicely with the pencil skirt.
I hope you enjoy this outfit! Let me know if you have any questions or have requests for more outfits like this one.
