Outfit formula 1: Top + slip skirt

For a simple but chic look, pair any slip skirt with a basic top. You can opt for a tank top, t-shirt, or blouse if you prefer respectively a more casual or business look and depending on your core style. A slide, loafer, or heel and a bag finish this look.

Outfit formula 2: Leggings + blazer

With the work-from-home area and the increase in wellness awareness – what we only can encourage – you want an outfit that makes you feel productive, comfortable, and sportive at the same time. Dress up your gym wear and take it to the streets – or workplace.

Just throw on your favorite staple pair of jeans, a basic t-shirt, and a blazer for an easy yet chic look. Heels make it more classic, sneakers more casual and sportive, and chunky loafers add a bold touch.
