    Styling Note
    To achieve a stylish and professional result during office hours, temper an abstract print with a tailored black blazer. Proportions are everything here; the jacket should hit at the natural waist or just below to create a flattering shape.

    Styling Note
    A full skirt may read prim on its own, but throw in an unexpected material (leather) and a flirtatious element (tie-front top), and it can take on a completely different persona once the sun goes down. The finishing touch: unfussy, pointy-toe flats.
