For those who know me, my affinity for dresses should come as no surprise. As we roll into spring, so too will Cocoa & Lace roll out a new feature – Get Dressed – honoring my favorite frocks of the season in all the trends you’ll love.
Celebrate a new week and a new season this Monday with a classic office-ready outfit. This chic pencil skirt and blazer in autumnal colors get a boost from fun embellished pumps and a patent leather bag. Add your own twist to timeless cuts with extras like a jeweled headband or bright belt and you’ll step seamlessly into fall.
Happy Monday! As you might have noticed, I’m not the only one with a new look this week. Cocoa & Lace is modeling a new layout, designed to showcase each post’s content in a more clean, elegant manner.
Similarly, this week’s office attire starts with a simple foundation in order to highlight the main attraction: the color purple. Nude heels keep the look grounded in neutrality while ensuring that the purple peplum dress gets all the attention. The addition of a green bag compliments the bold color palate and plays up the fun factor without overdoing it. Rich tonal jewelry adds the perfect finishing touch for a dazzling week ahead.
Happy Monday! Keep it simple this week with a classic look that combines flattering cuts and wardrobe staples. Try out some wide-leg trousers, a crisp blouse and a patent leather belt for a tailored yet modern vibe that’s perfect for the office. Add a pop of color with a vintage-inspired satchel and slip on a pair of pumps for an elongated silhouette. Have some fun with ladylike accessories such as an adorned headband and pearls for a finishing touch on a perfectly professional ensemble.
