OOTW: Teal It Like It Is

Jesse L. Brooks

 

As we head into May, we're focusing on bringing spring and summer colors into our work wardrobe. Just because you are in a professional setting does not mean you can't stand out and have fun with what you're wearing! In this case, we're playing up two classic separates with fresh and sassy accessories. 

Made in the UK from double wool crêpe, Roland Mouret's teal Taft top is lined in stretch-satin and detailed with a pretty peplum hem. We paired up the refined top with the matching pencil skirt that offers a structured fabric that provides a flattering finish, along with a classic silhouette with shapely darts. 

For an instant surge of color, these Christian Louboutin spiked color-block sandals are a must! The show-stopping Mafaldina style is like arm candy for the feet! It features an asymmetrical crossover strap, 4" covered stiletto heel and the brand's signature red leather sole. Any warm weather look needs a touch of sunshine, and that is just what Off-White's Jitney bag brings to the table. This single top-handle design will have you looking on the bright side the moment you pick it up. 

To bring a little pizazz to the northern part of our outfit we opted for a statement necklace with major personality. Rosantica looks back to 1920s and 1930s tutti-frutti jewelry with this radiant gold-tone brass Brio choker. It's crafted in Italy with an array of pink, clear and champagne round-cut crystals alongside green and blue baguette cut crystals, arranged on half-moon plaques that lead the eye to a central circle. Our finishing touch serves up one last dose of color with Rare Beauty's Lip Soufflé in a juicy shade of watermelon pink. 

Whether you're in a meeting, on a Zoom call or safely out for a business lunch, in this look you will "Teal Like It Is" in any crowd.
