Big City Style

A stylish take on workday attire for the girl on the go.

A girl in the city is always in a rush. Heading from place to place and trying not to be late. That's why routine is vital, especially Monday through Friday. While it’s easy to pick a stylish uniform for the 9-5 grind, sometimes a girl has to go bold and stand out in the most understated way. Trust us, your route to work will be much more fun when you have a lively skirt trailing behind you and a fresh pair of heels to strut in.

Inside your favorite everyday coat, try something different. Put on a cool, graphic outfit that is bound to make heads turn. Pair a vibrant, Balenciaga purple and yellow blouse with a striped metallic pleated skirt. For a more sophisticated look, go for Marni’s midi Shift dress. The subtle color of the dress will make your co-workers do a double take.

On casual Friday, pull off the boyfriend look with plaid Céline pants and an oversize Stella McCartney Thandie Check Shirt. For an unexpected twist? Accessorize with Dries Van Noten velvet heels, LaCalifornienne vintage watch–one or two–and a statement Webster Club T-Shirt by Alexa Chung. You can even opt for classic plaid on your coat too. Throw it over a lace-trimmed dress– Alexander Wang anyone?–and a jeweled turtleneck for a sophisticated yet fashion-forward look.

Sometimes the best way to tone up an outfit is simply with a great coat, and Loewe’s oversized wool coat will do just the trick. Another cult favorite, a classic trench. Pair it with Ellery’s floral High Noon top to add a flirty touch. And for the trendsetters, we recommend CALVIN KLEIN 20539NYC’s Plastic Floral Coat. The removable plastic layer is fashion’s newest obsession and of course, practical for getting caught in the rain.

In the mood to show off your legs? A show-stopping puffer coat is exactly what is needed. Balenciaga’s ultraviolet puffer is just the right amount of bold you need. For the perfect model-off-duty look, wear it a bit off-the-shoulder to show off your black fringe Balmain dress. Add your Loewe Egg Heels, and you are street style ready.
