Complete Your Look: Office Chic

Having issues with what to wear to work? Join the club. It's hard to express your fashion savvy while still abiding by the HR guidelines on how not to offend your CEO. The key is to play with proportions, update with fresh accents, and pay attention to the details.

A great example is this ensemble on Nicole Richie. She looks classic, but with a youthful, modern edge. This is a perfect look for the office, and it can easily transition into happy hour with the girls. Below are some choices that are similarly timeless and will have you looking effortlessly chic all day long.

 The Development Wool Swing Coat (was $676, now $473.20) is a great modern take on the classic houndstooth.  Its pleated collar and exaggerated sleeves make this coat truly unique.  Pull it on over the Theory Pocket Shift Dress (was $295, now $192), and you'll be ready to face the day. As an alternative, try the Kimchi & Blue Tweed Coat (was $250, now $99.99) paired with the Gap Wool Henley Dress (was $69.50, now $49.99), which gives the same stylish effect at a fraction of the price.

These Eva Patent Platforms by Gucci ($508) compliment your look with their daring height, and patent oxford detail. Paired with black tights, these shoes will make the outfit truly stand out. Another great option is the Patent Mary Jane Platform Shoe ($68.43).

A killer bag is a must for this ensemble, so our pick is the Botkier Bianca Patent Satchel ($595). It's a great size for daytime, but its color and design can easily transition into evening. The Sak Peace Satchel (was $199, now $159.20) is also perfect for toting around town.

Before you walk out the door, throw on a dash of color for that final touch. The Gucci Amelie Scarf ($260) or Vera Scarf ($77), can be worn around your neck or even tied onto your bag (à la Babe Pailey). This will accent your timeless look, and make you stand out among a sea of passé white-collars.
