A blazer and a pencil skirt. It sounds unassuming enough, but what if that blazer is a cape blazer? And the pencil skirt is a trendy print? Today's look is all about breaking tradition at the office, and asking how far is too far? Because even if the dress code is "blazer and skirt" this look may not always fly. If you're working at a fashion magazine, maybe, it's apropos. But for a more traditional office, this outfit could be better suited for after-hours work functions where you still want to look polished, but the dress code is more lax. Would you wear this look to the office?
