Casual in Camel
Choose camel colors, and come across as confident, and competent for cooler climates with casual clients.
Once you’ve solidified your closet with black and grey basics, it can be really fun to consider other compositions.
While I’d never wear this more casual dress with a conservative or formal client – because of the print (it’s not subtle), the color (it’s not as commanding as dark solid tones), and its cut (it’s fitted, the sleeves are ¾ length, and the skirt is slightly more flared than I usually wear) – it is a fun and appropriate fall work dress if your business environment is more creative. When paired with a corporate shoe, and composed bag and coat – it presents a confident, and coordinated look.
I found this dress on resale forever ago – 2009 I think – it was my first DVF dress, and because of the buttons vs. wrap style (always wayyy too low on my chest) it fits my body type really well. While I don’t get to wear it often, I love it every time I do. Here it is paired with my classic (and first pair) of Louboutin’s in chocolate brown, and the trench coat I found last summer on resale (read about it here) that I adore. My sunglasses and bag are wardrobe staples.
Camel colors combined with considerate classics casually caters to cooler climates (and clients).
All my best,
