One dress two looks same ways

Same style recipe, different look

Today I present the last photos of this winter. They are another way of wearing a sheath than the classic sheath with sweater combination that became famous with the Mad Men TV series. These featured 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 color scheme. Who says that instant style would lead to boring outfits over time? On the contrary, it can make up your signature style!

Outfit details of winter work outfit: Chanel-inspired tweed sheath dress c/o Shein styled with own GNW burgundy cardigan, burgundy and blue neckerchief worn as bracelet, GNW burgundy tight, garnet necklace and earrings (all own), wood watch c/o Jord, and Mousse & Cloud booties c/o Coolway

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. Don’t forget to add at least one trendy item to look great in tweed over 40, no matter whether the clothing is a sheath, skirt, blazer or a pair of trousers.

Stylist’s secret: Change the vibe of the look with your color choice

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. In case you missed it, you can find the review of this tweed sheath at the link.
