Leather jacket, grid print pants
Grid print pants, 3 ways

When I worked in an office I hated wearing dress pants. The bold prints you can buy them in now are certainly refreshing, and I love this catalog idea of a leather jacket worn with dress pants for your commute to and from work. It's the perfect juxtaposition between work and play and may even tempt you to wear trousers on weekends (I do sometimes!). Below I found some pretty white blouses similar to the one I'm wearing. These are a total staple in my closet. The simple white pairs with anything and everything, and I look for ones with small details like pleating or a small ruffle.
