PRETTY PROFESSIONALMarch 12, 2016
Fortunately, being professional no longer has to mean an ill-fitting pantsuit or a closet full of black and gray. Whether you’re in a more conservative environment or simply in need of a fail-safe look for an interview, meeting, or upcoming presentation, we’ve spotlighted all the top looks for Spring that are sure to help you stand out in the office. From trendy to classic, Destin Commons has everything you need to look pretty and professional at work.
As the weather starts to warm up, Linen and cotton are your best choices for light sperates that still look professional. These natural fibers will allow your clothes to breathe easier, so you are sure to stay comfortable throughout the entire work day. The pieces pictured are a stylish way of taking merging fashion with comfort in the office. These featured items can be found at White House Black Market and Express and are available in multiple colors.
Serenity blue is one of Pantone’s featured colors of the year, so we promise you will start to see this pretty hue readily available very soon. Pantone said they chose the dusty blue to evoke “a soothing sense of order and peace”, and let’s be honest- we all need a little order and peace during a long work day. Pictured are some of our favorite separates, though I wouldn’t hesitant to wear them all at once. You can nab these spring-ready pieces at Belk, Talbots, and LOFT.
Another one of Pantone’s colors of the year- Rose Quartz. From capsule wardrobe staples to dainty accessories, this color is popping up everywhere! Let’s be honest, chances are it’s been a few decades since you rocked the pastel hue but there is no better time to welcome it back into your wardrobe. Try to stick to dusty shades of pink to avoid looking a little too ‘Malibu Barbie’. Above are some great options you can find at White House Black Market, Steve Madden, and Belk.
An all white outfit is one of the hottest looks right now and there are plenty of ways to pull this trend off. From simple separates to an artfully layered and accessorized outfit, this is a look that is more versatile than you may initially think. Pair wide-leg pants with a basic T-shirt, or add a lacy top with a structured skirt. White accessories keep the look chic and monochromatic. Find these separates and more at H&M, White House Black Market, and Belk.
Floral prints in their many avatars, never fail to stay on top of fashion trend charts for Spring. Yes, they still feel like a statement, but they are mainstream enough to be worn at work and conservative enough to be counted as professional chic. So have we worn your floral piece to work yet? If you are feeling weary, start small with a pop of floral like the Steve Madden sandal pictured above. Busy florals like a full print dress or blouse can be tamed with a solid blazer.

Simple, Elegant, and Clean. We simply cannot discuss work wear without addressing the classics. In the fickle world of style, a timeless sort of beauty works no matter what is trending. This kind of look is less about fashion and more about spending time putting yourself together, flattering every element of your appearance and feeling confident. Invest in quality pieces that will last and you’ll never regret it. Find these pieces at Belk and White House Black Market.
