Create the waist you’ve always wanted...
...in a color-blocked peplum dress (a modern take on the sophisticated silhouette). A flouncy, flirty peplum detail nips in at your natural waistline, adding welcome volume to a straight figure. Strategic color-blocking will continue to create the illusion of an hourglass figure, by breaking up the body into separate sections. Wear with a bold, gold statement necklace and you’re ready for your promotion.
Slim hips and hide a tummy...
...in a longer-length, structured blazer. A long length effectively skims over hips and thighs for a naturally slimming effect. Structure and clean lines will whittle your middle, to counter any extra bulge. Roll up your sleeves to show off slender wrists, and a stack of fabulous bangles—an instant way to amp up your style and look polished for the office.
Ditch standard black
Most work wardrobes can be dull and uninspiring. Add some flair to your functional office basics, like with this aqua pencil skirt, pink lined tuxedo pants, or cropped cobalt trousers. Just be sure to balance the bold hues with neutral tones (think cream cardigans or charcoal blouses).
You can wear animal prints...
...to work! The key is to look for luxe fabrics and rich jewel-toned colors for fall, like in this gorgeous emerald green silk blouse. (I love this unexpected and fresh shade.) Look polished and professional (not party girl) by pairing with black classic trousers and sensible pumps.
