It’s that time of year and today I’m sharing a business casual holiday edition look for my 9 to 5 ladies. What I love about fashion is the ability to take one look and edit it with minor changes. The good thing about this look is that it’s acceptable for 9 to 5, 5 to 9 and a little festive with this green sweater so perfect for the holidays or a holiday party. I know many women struggle with wanting to look nice for work but still wanting to look stylish and appropriate as well.
I actually really like the way this look turned out. It gets the Davida stamp of approval because I actually wore this to a networking event for young professionals. The outfit was a hit! My sweater and pants are both from J.Jill. These pants are a ponte knit pleated full leg crop. So they are not like a normal structured dress pant, they are soft. Personally they are one of my favorite pairs of pants. The crop is perfect for us petite ladies, I’m actually wearing an extra small petite. The pleated detail on the hips is also a nice touch because it gives the pants some shape. Oh and did I mention that the elastic waistband!? <–Holiday approved because we tend to eat more around this time of year so you won’t feel uncomfortable.
The sweater is the perfect holiday green as I call it. I think the actual color is evergreen. It’s not to over done and doesn’t look like you are trying too hard to be festive. It’s a cotton knit sweater so it’s very soft and comfortable on the body. I am also wearing an extra small petite. That is one of the things I love about J.Jill. Typically I shy away from shopping at women’s clothing stores and women’s brands because they don’t cater to petites. Some brands carry petites but they aren’t true petites.
To complete this look I added these black slingbacks which are literally the perfect height! The heel height is only 3 1/4 inch. Haha, I never thought I’d see the day when my heels were less than 5 inches. My how times have changed.
So what are your thoughts? Would you wear this look to the office or to a holiday party? I’m no outfit snob so I’m sure I will be wearing this again. One last thing…J.Jill is having a sale! From now until November 26, take 30% off your entire purchase with code THANKS17, happy shopping!
