Fashion Jobs – The Arty Block Heel

Thursday, January 28th, 2016

Style Nine to Five - Fashion JobsStyle-Inspiration

Move over, stilettos! The arty block heel is the newest must-have item for every shoe connoisseur. During fall/winter 2015 fashion month, editors, bloggers and style obsessed Instagrammers were all talking about these eccentric heels, and with good reason—they’re absolutely gorgeous. With their sculptural and whimsical elements, this season’s block heels can give your outfit a much-needed boost of creativity, especially if you’ve fallen into a winter style rut. Despite their aesthetic appeal, the true beauty of the block heel is that it’s actually a quite practical shoe (no, I’m not kidding). Due to the chunky heel, these shoes are both comfortable and sturdy, which is a blessing when you’re walking on slush-covered sidewalks or doing the Whip/Nae Nae a little too hard on the dance floor. Here are a few drool-worthy arty block heels that will get you to give your stilettos a well-deserved break this winter.

Fashion Jobs – Lady in Red

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs

 

Untitled-1dsz1

For years and years I avoided wearing anything red like the plague because of my complexion, which is inclined towards looking quite pink at the best of times, and even more so after a glass or two of bubbly at a Christmas soiree. Little did I know, that between crimson, scarlet, vermillion and maroon there’s a shade of red for everyone to ignite your passion and heighten your sensuality. Perfect for the holidays, take inspiration from some of the creations below.

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobspufferinspiration

Puffer jackets are something that you can undeniably count as a staple each and every winter. Looking put-together in -20 weather can be a challenge, but there’s something about the way that a puffer accentuates your frame without being bulky that makes it a must-have investment. Whatever hat, scarf, or boot trend there is, the ever reliable puffer jacket can be counted on to go with anything while keeping you looking both stylish and toasty, even if you may be wearing 12 layers of clothes underneath.

Fashion Jobs – Floral Trousers

Monday, November 23rd, 2015

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobsfloraltrousersinspiration

Florals for spring are not exactly groundbreaking (cue the eyeroll), but the oft-overlooked fall floral is a whole other animal. Moody and romantic with a darker palette and rich textures, floral print trousers for fall and winter are an unexpected choice that can be so worn many different ways. The floral trouser works great as a transitional day-to-night piece paired with a structured blazer and statement jewelry, can be dressed down for a Netflix and chill sesh with a chunky sweater, or you can bring out your inner 60’s bossa nova and wear them with a black turtleneck.

Fashion Jobs – Rascal Flats

Wednesday, October 28th, 2015

STtyle Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – life is too short for uncomfortable footwear. As much as I so want to be one of those chicks who can sashay through the day effortlessly in six inch heels, I find myself batting for #teamflats more often than I’d like to admit.

Even though sleek heels may have the market cornered on elongating your frame, there’s no reason why flats can’t be a professional and stylish alternative! A pointed toe looks classic and powerful, a bright hue will add youthful vibrance, and an animal motif will look cheeky and clever.

Flat shoes add an element of fun and laissez-faire attitude to your ensemble, and your feet will thank you for the break.

Fashion Jobs – A Touch of Summer

Transitioning skirts into your fall wardrobe can make for some really stunning and unique looks. I love to pair a suede mini with tall boots and a chunky knit sweater.

This look is weather-appropriate and has just the right amount of sexiness! Another great skirt option for fall is a fuller midi skirt paired with a long sleeve crop and a pair of ankle boots.

This can also be easily dressed up with a pair of stilettos for night. Fall skirts are also awesome paired with an edgier coat like a leather motorcycle jacket or an oversize bomber. The perfect touch of femininity!

Fashion Jobs – Leather Pants

Wednesday, October 21st, 2015

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobsleatherpantsinspiration [528946]

The story of how my leather pants and I came together plays out like an unexpected, star-crossed romance. I had originally bought a pair to use for a Halloween costume, but I quickly found that wearing them gave me a sense of confidence and mystique that nothing else in my closet even came close to, and I fell hard. What surprised me the most was how easy it was to incorporate them into both casual and professional settings. Worn with a crisp white shirt, a slouchy sweater, or a simple tee, leather pants make a powerful statement no matter where you are.

Fashion Jobs – Lace-Up Shirts

Friday, October 9th, 2015

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobslaceupinspiration [587714]

Consider for a moment the enigma of the corset. Outdated? Absolutely. Repressive? Some may say so. How, then, has it managed to hold our cultural imagination over 100 years after having gone out of mainstream fashion? Ultimately, the allure and glamour associated with it is difficult to follow. The line of the ribbon, painstakingly tied, which runs down a woman’s back meets a modern match in the on-trend lace-up shirts of today. Modern designers such as Emilio Pucci, Derek Lam, and Tamara Melon appear to have taken inspiration from the seventies (if you haven’t started to see a common theme this season…) and the late nineties (think Britney Spears on the cover of “Oops… I Did It Again!”), but today’s chic lace-up tops remain relaxed and bohemian while hinting at a pointedly old-world “peek-a-boo” sex appeal. Check out some of the options below that will put your crisp button-downs to shame.

Fashion Jobs – Sweatshirts at the Office

Tuesday, October 6th, 2015

Style Nine to Five - Fashion Jobs

While sweatshirts at the office may seem ultra-casual, there is still a way to pull this off while maintaining a professional look. When I wear a sweatshirt to work, I’m sure to compensate with a really well-tailored pair of trousers and a great shoe. I also tend to wear more accessories than I normally would to dress up the outfit a bit. This look also benefits from mixing different textures (cotton sweater, silk trousers, structured leather purse). When done correctly, this look is so stylish and allows for the absolute most comfort you could have at the office!
