One way to avoid a style rut

Sheath with pumps are a foolproof work outfit

Pairing a sheath with pumps and a bag is a fool proved summer outfit for the office. However, it can easily go into boredom when you set it on repeat. Thus, you want to mix it up to keep it interesting. Here I am wearing a gray leather sheath with a striped button-down shirt and gray ankle strap pumps for an edgy, but office appropriate look. To stay warm in the evening when temperature drops into the 60s (15oC) I wore a white denim jacket.

Why the outfit works

The stripes of the shirt pick up the shades of the different gray of the sheath and shoes and the bag. You can style this sheath in many ways. I wore this sheath as skirt and styled another office outfit with this sheath.

Do you own a sheath dress? How do you style it? Let me know by email I am curious.
