What to wear when you are in a hurry

Every professional woman has faced this situation. You are checking your emails while having breakfast and see that your boss had sent you an invitation for a business meeting after the EOB (end of business). Of course, this meeting is at an earlier time than you typically arrive at the office. This means your usual morning routine doesn’t work and the outfit you planed for the day doesn’t work. You had prepared a Casual Friday look, but the meeting requires Business Casual work outfit.

Red and gray together are an evergreen classic Euro Chic

In the above “emergency” go for fool proof classic color combinations. Just two colors is best like navy with beige, black and white, or red and gray. In winter, a skirt and cashmere sweater with a necklace are always a good business casual combo for a mature woman.

How I styled a red with gray work outfit

Somehow I love the combination of red and gray. Here I wear an all gray outfit for indoors with just a pop of red. I like the red cashmere turtleneck sweater to be the focus. For “outdoors”, I wear my black and gray A-line faux fur coat with a black hat, a red floral scarf, red gloves, and red bag. I looked in the winter sales, but unfortunately I did not find pink, light gray, orange, or sunflower yellow leather gloves. I am still looking.

Have you already found your gloves for this winter? Do you wear gloves with color or just in neutrals?
