Capsule Combination [Jackets + Jeans]

Another place to start in building capsules centers on an “outfit formula”. Lillian Fallon defines an outfit formula in her article, How to Create Your Ideal Outfit Formula and Love What You’re Wearing Every Single Day, as your “very own uniform or your trademark tool”. Identifying the look you love also helps building closet confidence.

With moving out of corporate America and into owning my own business, my uniform evolved from suits to jackets and jeans. I love this look because it can go from meeting with clients to drinks with friends to date with my husband.

Corporate Women’s Fashion

Whether you are in an office or will be heading to the office, professional women’s fashion continues to evolve into what I call “Corporate Casual”.  Depending on your company’s culture, denim is gaining acceptance but always top it off with a jacket (or tailored cardigan).  The topper brings the look of credibility while you bring the substance.  It’s a winning combination for any career.

The jacket is the completer piece that elevates any look, whether you need to dash on to a zoom, dinner out or polish off errands without a second look.

It is all about power woman meets casual chic with an air of sophistication and cool….while never sacrificing comfort.

While it could be 90-100 degrees outside, it’s always chilly inside.  This stunning layering piece compliments you….and you are the one getting all the compliments.
