Look Good, Feel Great

You are what you wear – at least at the office. No matter your personal style – simple, bold, or somewhere in the middle – your workplace wardrobe should always give you confidence. We asked three boutiques to show off professional ensembles that are sure to make a lasting impression.


 



Embellish

Blouse: Smarteez
Trousers: DVF
Shoes: Jaggar
Bag: Loeffler Randall
Earrings: Maslo Jewelry

“I love this professional look. It’s tailored enough for an important client meeting and even the boardroom, but still allows for comfort. Both the blouse and the pants have just the right amount of stretch to allow for movement while not losing their shape. The silver stud details and pleating of the blouse add beautiful dimension, and the block tortoise heel of the white mule provides an edginess to complete the look.” – Terri Holley

Model: Alex Sachel, Chattanooga



Element

Dress: ASTR
Denim jacket: French Connection
Tote: ABLE
Necklace: Caroline Banks Jewelry
Bracelets: Caroline Banks Jewelry

“A denim jacket can be a great substitute for a blazer and is a versatile layering piece throughout the seasons. We paired this gorgeous floral dress with a denim jacket, and it strikes the perfect balance between feminine and ‘chill’ – making it a fun option to wear to the office, then meet up with friends for dinner. We love this look!” – Jodi Walters

Model: Kristen Jenkins, Cleveland



Alice Blue

Blouse: PAIGE
Trousers: Equipment
Tote: Draper James
Necklace: Tat2 Designs
Earrings: Sheila Fajl

“Your appearance translates to performance! Having confidence in your clothes will make a huge difference in your career, which is why I love this chic outfit for the office. The black and white pinstripe trousers have a classic style and versatility, so combining them with the right top – like this beautiful black blouse – is easy. Plus, when work is over, you can take this look from the office to a dinner party or football game.” – Anita Headrick

Model: Crissy Warren, North Chattanooga
