Style inspiration for me comes from a few different places; watching runways, seeing other content creators, people watching and movies. I usually see a new way to style a certain piece or a whole new look I haven’t tried yet and I’ll mix it with with my own style to create something unique. I have a little natural inclination towards business chic so when I saw ‘A simple favor’ with Blake Lively who took power suits and business chic to a whole new level, I couldn’t wait to have a play and create something of my own.
First order of business when going business chic is a good button up; it is almost always an essential piece when styling in this way. The easiest to go with is a white men's shirt but I like to switch it up a bit and went for a blue and white striped button up instead. It has lovely ballooned sleeves that I showcased by rolling the sleeves up of my fabulous blue double breasted linen coat, which by the way is a perfect addition for a winter spring cross over piece as it’s relatively lightweight and the color is just perfect. Further more one of the best styling tips I have is when you are wearing a more box like coat or blazer is to belt it at the waist; I do this almost every time as it not only highlights your figure but also pulls the whole look together. Keeping with the slight monochrome vibe I have going on is a classic and clean pair of skinny denim jeans because along with business chic inspo I am really loving all the monochromatic looks happening this spring. Obviously didn’t go all the way with the blue by styling mostly with black accessories from my vintage leather belt and bag to my latest wardrobe addition of sneakers but I did bring it back with a stunning pair of dangle earrings; these beauties really make it all pop and give it that little mix of uniqueness. As I said style inspiration can come from almost anywhere but it’s also important to find your own style in amongst it all like combining business chic with street style or fancy and casual whatever works for you when you let that creativity flow.
