Hello, hello! I can’t believe that summer has officially ended and October is just a few short days away. Over the last few weekends, I have found myself slowly sifting through my closet to find pieces to donate or put away for next Spring/Summer. During this audit, I realized I *needed* clothes that were functional for both work and fun.
If you’ve been following my blog since the beginning, you know that Authentically Allyson started as workwear inspiration for twenty-somethings. After several months of sharing my tips for workwear style, I realized I had SO much more to share about fashion. I wanted my blog to be a platform that showcased dressing without fear, for any occasion. Almost two years later, I’m addressing workwear for the young professional again. This time, I have a little bit more professional experience under my belt and a refreshed sense of how to make workwear express one’s personality.
During my recent collaboration with ModCloth, I pulled this Parisian-influenced workwear look. This sleek, polished look is conservative but showcases my personality and sense of style. It shows that I’m edgy without being too overbearing.
The cream, sleeveless top is the perfect base for creating layered workwear looks. However, it is the Blissful Thinking Wide Leg Pants that truly steal the show. The ULTRA comfortable and flowing black pants move with every step I take and truly elevate the look. I paired this with my own leather jacket so the look can easily transition to happy hour.
To create a similar look, find a pair of elastic, high-waisted pants with a fun print and pair with a solid colored top. Throw a leather or bomber jacket over to show some personality and VOILA. Workwear for the yopro (young professional).
