A tweed skirt with (fake) twinest is a business casual work outfit
In this post, the OOTD stays with the basics: A fake twinset with a L.L. Bean arglye cashmere sweater, Moda International cardigan, Vince Camuto suede boots, gray GNW tight, and gray belt for shape (all items are my own).
Add interest by wearing it your way
To keep the outfit from being boring I wrapped the cardi around my shoulders instead of putting my arms into the sleeves. I hope Mademoiselle forgives me that I wear it my way. 😉
Be aware outerwear is an outfit too that needs styling
The outer outfit was my Cole Haan shearling motorcycle coat, a Nordstrom Rack chevron cashmere scarf, burgundy beret, mirrored Ray Ban purple aviator sunglasses, and Nordstrom Rack burgundy gloves (all own).
When the winter last seven month, investing into great gloves in various colors is a must to not get into winter boredom – outfit wise – or into an outerwear style rud. I invest in my classic basic everyday gloves in standard colors, i.e. the fundamental pieces that are to last. I have made nothing, but great expriences with gloves I bought here.
When it comes to glove trends be frugal
On the contrary, I go for a bargain when it comes to trendy gloves like in the photo above. I always browse for unique gloves in thrift- and consignment stores as well as on sales. Trendy gloves typically have minor quality than high end basics as trends are not supposed to last. On the contrary, they are supposed to be just a trend and go. Period.
