Too often as students we make the mistake of accumulating fun pieces we can wear now but not in a professional setting. When it comes time for the career fairs and job interviews, we look to our closets only to become discouraged. It’s never too early to begin building a wardrobe of mix-and-matchable pieces that are appropriate for both work and play.

It’s never too early to begin building a wardrobe of mix-and-matchable pieces that are appropriate for both work and play. My pick this week is not only a great “Casual Friday” option, but it’s also a fantastic example of how to make your tailored office essentials look funky enough for a night out on the town.
When it comes to finding stylish work attire that’s both age appropriate and suitable in price and quality, LOFT is hard to beat. To easily recreate this layered look on your own, stick to a neutral color palette and focus on pairing together textures that are aesthetically interesting.
A sequined tank, underneath a ruffled jacket, beneath a black fur vest, may sound extreme in theory, but paired with classically tailored wide-leg trousers, the overall look remains pulled together.
Increase the playful factor by throwing on a pair of printed pumps, layering on your favorite jewelry, and topping it all off with a chic sequined beret. The result is a look that’s simultaneously sophisticated and fun.
