The Colors of the Season: Work Finds

This week, we broke down all the rich color for the season in Clothes & Conversation, “Dress in Color…But, Which Ones?” . And many of these sophisticated tones translate beautifully for work wear pieces – especially the luxurious camels, and greys. But heading to the office doesn’t mean pops of stylish color like deep green and soft blue can’t look professional…it’s all in the silhouettes and how you wear them. And we’ve found some pieces that will provide just the right updates to have you feeling modern and powerful.
Let us know what you think in the comments below. Check back tomorrow (Wednesday) for our favorite ways to bring color to your night out looks, and Thursday for some casual style fun. Whatever the occasion, we’ve got you covered.

Jewel Tones. A pencil skirt is a staple for most office cultures, and J.Crew gives it a wonderful style update with fashionable color and a modern zipper detail. This rich forest green is gorgeous with the zipper’s pop of gold (and selling fast, but it also comes in dusty pink and black). In 000-16, Petite and Tall, the modern fit hugs your curves without being snug. Wear it with any neutral and pumps or stylish heeled boots. It’s a great balance to prints – even a plaid shirt. We especially love it with a simple camel sweater for a current look.

Luxe Camels. We don’t know what we love more about this Tahari dress – the amazing modern plaid that uses camel and a bunch of other great colors in such a chic way, or the equally amazing price. What we do know is that the combination of the two means it won’t last long. In 2-16, the modern fitting sheath is made of a comfortable stretch knit so it’s not clingy and not overly fitted, just skimming the body and accenting the waist in such a subtle way. The exposed zipper in the back is a chic finish that can be accented with a gold cuff bracelet, and you won’t need any more jewelry than that. Of course, you can add a chunky choker necklace around the high crewneck style. Complete the look with black or cognac brown heels.

Luxe Camels. A camel blazer is a timeless investment, and J.Crew was really thinking about a lady’s long workday when they designed this one – it uses a wrinkle-resistant wool that is comfortable and has a high quality look. On a casual Friday, it adds polish to dark jeans and a white button down or t-shirt. And any other day of the week, you’ll look sophisticated when you pair it with navy, grey, or black trousers and a simple shell or turtleneck. The slim, but not skinny, fit even works over a simple sheath dress. As J.Crew often does, this jacket comes in 000-16, Petite and Tall, which eliminates the need for sometimes-pricey blazer alterations.

Shades of Grey. Equipment really knows their way around a timeless cashmere sweater and we can’t resist this beautiful soft grey turtleneck. The 100% cashmere is so soft and luxurious looking, especially in this color. The slightly shorter length hits at the hip, and the should is dropped for an easier shape to the body – that’s a combination that is not easy to come by and makes for a perfectly tailored looking sweater that you’ll love for the office and on the weekends. The length is perfect for a pencil skirt or trousers of any shape. With jeans you’ll still look polished and simply chic.

Salt & Pepper. The mix of black and white can sometimes take on a sporty feel, but Donna Morgan interprets it for the office in this simple a-line dress. The rounded neckline and longer half-sleeve are professional and flattering, and balance the fashionable leather-like trim details around the slant pockets, neckline, and exposed zipper detail. The length typically hits a few inches above the knee, while the relaxed fit keeps it work appropriate – especially when you pair it with black tights and boots. This comes in 0-16, so if your size isn’t available through the ‘shop it’ button, try Zappos. (Our picture, from Zappos more accurately reflects the black & white color combination than Lord & Taylor’s picture.)

Denim Blues. You don’t need to be wearing jeans to enjoy a beautiful shade of rich blue this season. Vince uses a boucle fabric to create a textured finish to this effortless dress that is just gorgeous against the dress’s simplicity. You can add a belt in black or any shade of brown to accentuate your waist – a great trick if you have curves. Or, let the clean lines of this straight dress speak for you. You can add a scarf for a pop of color, or a statement necklace for added personality, though we don’t think it needs anything to look amazing. Vince uses a stretch fabric, in a fit that is body skimming and easy so it won’t cling. It’s available in XXS-XL, so if your size is sold out through the ‘shop it’ button, try Neiman Marcus or Vince’s website – all have free shipping.

Pastel Accents. Sweaters can often be classically tailored or slouchy and easy, but Tory Burch turns both of those directions around with this absolutely stunning soft blue sweater. When you pair it with slim pants or a straight skirt, you don’t need to worry about adding any other layers to subtly conceal any hip, behind, or belly issues you’d rather forget about - the angled hem creates an insanely flattering and very subtle peplum does that for you, while accentuating your waist. And the mix of open and solid stitch work panels create the same interest as any good patterned blouse, in an utterly refined way. The pale blue has a smoky tone to it that is just right for the Winter months, and looks beautiful with any neutral – as well as some deep jewel tones, like burgundy.

Rich Reds. Vince’s current and tailored aesthetic is on fully display with these deep burgundy trousers. Vince’s easy, modern fit and straight leg keeps the look of adding a pop of red completely professional – and the color is so deep, it reads as a posh neutral. The slim black striping down the sides allow you to add a black blazer or simple black sweater (we love the look of a turtleneck), along with menswear-inspired loafers or oxfords to complete your look for a day at the office. And, of course, you can add a silky blouse and strappy heels for a night out. Simple black heels work with these pants in any environment. For a truly updated silhouette, keep them cropped just to your ankle bone – and make sure you bring the shoes you plan on wearing most often if you need to have them tailored.

Rich Reds. Simple as can be, the Bordeaux color (called “beet red” through the ‘shop it’ button) of these classic leather pumps from DKNY is everything. The pointed toe and slim heel are timeless, and it’s a color that looks beautiful with everything. Just like men wear cordovan shoes with navy, grey, and camel, the same is true here – and they are amazing with dark jeans, too. You will get so much more use out of them than you even realize.
