St. Patrick’s Day is tomorrow… but I also thought about looks that women can wear for any occasion. So rather than focusing on purchasing items for one day, I wanted to motivate you toward pieces that can transition from season to season.
Corporate Wear: I believe a dress with a distinct detail is a timeless piece to own. The detail of the pencil dress draws the eye to the smallest part of the waist which shows curvier figure. Pair it with a trench coat to stay warm and cute in this chilly weather!

Casual Work Wear: Create a chic look that can carry on into the night by trying a cigarette pant! Teamed up with a v-neck drape blouse, it gives a professional, yet chill vibe. To pull the look together, grab a neutral colored accessory.
Bar Night: Keep it simple, but pretty! Try a split back tee-shirt and a high-waisted skinny jean (good for smoothing out your waist). No one wants the hassle of carrying around a huge purse in bar, so try to look for a large clutch.

Formal Wear: Just incase you’re heading to a formal event, look for pieces that could be paired with something that you can dress up or down. A wrap dress or a skirt that flares out is perfect for any body shape!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
