Over the past couple of weeks I have asked my followers to send me some new ideas to talk about on my blog. Chanda recently asked to see “multiple ways to wear affordable work clothes.” So thank you Chanda for the great blog idea…I hope you enjoy what I came up with!
This navy blue dress is from Forever 21 and I paid $24 for it. I love this dress because it is comfortable and stylish for various looks you are going for. I really think it’s important to have dresses like this in your wardrobe because you can tailor different looks around it; whether it is for work or a Spring training game!
This first work look is layered with a vintage maroon motorcycle jacket, a statement piece copper necklace and a pair of black wedges. I love pairing navy with warm colors like maroon and deep plum purples; in my opinion that is when the navy color really stands out. This is more of a “casual,” work look but most women can get away with this look if you pair a light button-up neutral color sweater with it under the jacket!
Like I say “always add statement pieces before you walk out of the door.” It can truly make your entire outfit pop, like the picture shown above.

My next look is more of a business casual office look. I layered a thin stripe white and navy button up under the dress to give the look a different feel.
I also wanted to accessorize this outfit up with a pearl necklace, cluster diamond earrings and a tan belt. If this is too much for you, then I would just choose the jewelry or belt and not do both 🙂

My last look is also a business casual outfit that is paired up with a burnt orange tailored jacket and a vibrant brushed gold and neutral beaded necklace that brings the looks together. I also paired this outfit with some close-toe chocolate brown booties that I absolutley love! These boots are amazing because they can work for really any look you are going for, whether it’s a dress look or skinny jean look….these boots have you covered!
