After last week’s post of an alternative option for the business suit, I started looking at my closet in a whole new light. It turns out I have quiet a few things that could be consider professional attire, while still maintaining my personal style and a little flare. I started experimenting to see what other young professional outfit alternatives I could come up with.
This outfit uses the suit pants I’ve had for years but it ditches the classic but monotone suit jacket for something a little more fun. The outfit is still pretty classic and conservative, perfect for a job that requires a more strict dress code. The brown purse helps to complete the look and add another interesting element. I like how the brown works with the black and green.
Tip: You’d be surprised the things you can create with the things already in your closet. Take a step back and look at what you own with a different eye.
