STYLING PRINTS THREE WAYS, FOR WORK
If you’ve followed my blog for a while you’ll know how much I love a pop of colour or prints in my ensemble. As much as I often try and embrace an effortless monochrome ensemble, I can’t help but be drawn towards the bold, the bright and the playful. So when Dorothy Perkins challenged me with styling their print collection in three different looks for work, I tackled the challenge head on.
LOOK 1: FRIDAY WORK VIBES
For my first look I thought i’d start with the ultimate dressed down Friday styling. Whilst some days at work require a more suited and booted styling, Fridays are usually reserved for a slightly more relaxed and laid back styling, and what better way to celebrate the more chilled out vibe than with worn denim & a little faux fur. I style my Dorothy Perkins blouse with my Toyshop mom jeans & DP lace up black sandals. It’s the kind of look that can quite easily carry you from day to night, which if we’re honest, is what Fridays are all about.
70’S INSPIRED OFF STYLE
There’s no denying that the 70’s has made a real revival this year, and in fact i’ve been embracing it in my own style a little too (not quite flares, but suede has certainly been a big part of my style of late). And what better ode to the 70’s than a geometric print tunic top & a suede a line mini. Seasonal trends don’t have to be reserved for weekends, you can quite subtly style trends into your office style, it’s all about keeping things simple & modest.
CLASSIC WORK STYLE
It wouldn’t be an office style feature, if I didn’t style the print trend in a classic office ensemble, the sort of style reserved for meeting days or days spent tackling a big project. My classic office style is relatively simple, usually a good fitting pair of skinny jeans (these DP legging jeans are the most comfortable AND jet black pair) and a chic blouse to smarten up the look. I usually finish things off with a long, chic coat and a smart designer bag, this Kate Spade laptop bag is a new purchase and an absolute dream.
And there you have it, three ways to style prints for a chic work or office look. Which was your favourite?
