One dress two looks same ways

mature style winter work outfit with cardigan and tweed dress

Same style recipe, different look

Today I present the last photos of this winter. The two work outfits both base on the same styling recipe: Dress with knit jacket, tights and booties. These two posh office outfits, however, look quite different from each other due to the change in the coloring scheme. Who says that instant style would lead to boring outfits over time? On the contrary, it can make up your signature style.

How repeat the styling recipe

In the work outfit above, I added a burgundy jacket and burgundy tights. The accessories, a square silk scarf worn as arm candy and wood watch stay with the burgundy theme. The color combination works two basic colors red and blue darkened with black to burgundy and navy. It also works the black and white extreme with the white in the tweed and the black booties.

In the outfit above, I worked with neighboring colors on the color wheel, blue and green and the shades thereof. I added brown as a neutral for balance. This outfit has a calming vibe, while the first outfit in this post has a more powerful attitude.
