HEAD TO TOE WORK LOOK

With the sun finally making an appearance (in between the bouts of rain and clouds), it's time to update your work wardrobe with key pieces. 

Topshop’s Frill Hem Trousers are both office and fashion appropriate, featuring two key silhouettes of the season: a cropped length and frilled hems. To make these pants look a bit more conservative, tuck in a striped blouse. The blue and white stripes add a nice contrast to the orange color of the pants. Finish the look off with M.Gemi’s Noto block-heel mules to easily transition the look from day to night. There’s rain in the forecast toward the end of the week, so you can opt for less-expensive shoes like these.

HEAD TO TOE FIRST IMPRESSION

Meet the parents, administration and teachers with a polished yet fashionable look that will withstand the thundershowers.

School tours, open houses, “new parents” events, oh my! Whether you’re just starting the dreaded prep school application process or your kid is already “in,” you’re guaranteed to have a few events in the next few weeks for which you need to dress to impress. It’s all about walking that fine line between looking fashionable and in-the-know, yet conservative enough that you won’t raise any eyebrows. We’ve broken it down into uptown and downtown school looks because they are not the same. You know which one you are.

 

Uptown Schools: Whether you’re a stay-at-home mom or headed to the office straight from your tour, take a sophisticated, minimalist approach to your ensemble. Slim-fit pants in a “tech” fabric make a trim silhouette and will withstand the rain. A tie-waist blouse or tie-sleeve top is the perfect blend of classic yet on-trend. Pair with a cool trench coat and these adorable waterproof loafers by Hunter for a chic, pulled-together look.

 

Downtown Schools: Your look can show off more of an individual flare. Overly fussy or prim outfits may look too stuffy, but you should still be pulled together. Start with silk floral-print pants like this pair by Vivetta. We also love these, these, these and these, all at different price points. With showers on the horizon, we recommend a slightly cropped style that won’t drag on the ground and water-resistant shoes like Hunter’s heeled Chelsea boots. Pair with a sleek black sleeveless turtleneck, a black moto jacket and a cool bag.
