You got it – gorgeous everyday pieces that manage to be comfortable and fashionable. Jeunesse, the debut collection from the match-made-in-heaven design duo of Cristina Ehrlich (Nicole Richie’s stylist!) and Aiko’s Creative Director Cynthia Mittweg, is all about effortless versatility. After all, we all know that perfecting the whole day-to-night look that you can take from work to happy hour is a transition easier said than actually pulled off… and Jeunesse is determined to do the work for you with a collection of gorgeous blouses for the hard-working girl who never misses a beat in the style department. Silky ruffles, subtle prints, and structured pleats make for a collection that’s feminine but not at all fussy, and can be easily dressed up or down with the right slacks, pencil skirt, or even your favorite pair of jeans for casual Friday.

Feel Sexy & Chic at Work With a Sheer Tie-Neck Blouses

If there’s one thing we can take away from Ally McBeal (aside from recurring nightmares about creepy dancing babies), it’s that there’s definitely a line that needs to be respected when it comes to your workwear wardrobe (and that line lives barely above your knee)! But just because there’s a required level of appropriateness that should be observed (though I guess it depends on where you work!), it doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t look and feel sexy. This season’s silky-sheer tie-neck blouses manage to be conservative and chic with their high neckline, tie detail, and ample coverage, yet sexy and just slightly suggestive at the same time with their barely-there sheerness. Talk about leaving something to the imagination! Pair with a camisole underneath to preserve your classiness during work hours, and then swap with a lacy bralette or a sequin tank for a little happy hour sultriness!

While it’s a total bummer to say goodbye to summer, there’s still plenty of reason to celebrate the start of fall… when it comes to trends, that is! Now that the weather is starting to cool down, it’s time to embrace previously taboo textiles like wool – specifically tweed! Cropped tweed trousers may have been totally unwearable during the hotter summer months, but they could easily be your autumn go-to staple for making a chic statement at work that’s still comfortable and effortlessly cool. Pair with some chunky wedge booties for fall or your favorite printed flats, or elongate legs with some pointed toe pumps. These fresh-for-fall styles put a new spin on the traditionally “stuffy” material (so long to stiff jackets and suits!), but when wearing slouchier styles be sure to stay mindful of proportions by pairing with a more tailored or streamlined top to avoid looking sloppy!

Freshen Up Your Summer Work Wear with Pinstriped Capris

I like dressing up for work – ok, I’m not necessarily talking about a suit – complete with collared shirt and blazer, but I love feeling extra polished in a pair of crisp dress pants, heels and some sort of blouse to deviate a bit from the norm and add a touch of personal style.  There are so many new options coming into play now, and so many ways to reinvent up your “career uniform. You can get quite creative without revealing too much.

One of my favorite ways to infuse some summer style into my work wardrobe is thru pinstriped capris. Pinstriped capris the place of dress pants and can be worn with most of the things you would normally wear slacks with – a blazer, a sweater, your favorite blouse. Pinstriped capris definitely add a touch of summer. Perhaps my favorite part about work-ready capris are that you can really show off your shoes! This is the perfect time to rock a pair of platform peep toe pumps.
