A Dress for the Classic Chic Woman

I came across this dress in my daily excursions through my favorite online sites.  It struck me as sophisticated, bold, sexy, and professional…everything a young woman could want! Despite the open-back making it impractical to wear a bra, this dress would be perfect for a work event or function.  Wear it with a pair of black stiletto pumps and a black clutch. While this dress is perfect on its own, it would also look great with a thick black belt around the waist.

Get the Looks from the “Suits” TV Show

If you’re a Suits fan, I’m sure you know what it’s like to wait eagerly for Wednesday nights when a new episode airs.  I have officially watched all of the current fifth season’s episodes about ten times each and now I can’t wait for the mid-season premiere this January!

Even if you’ve only watched one episode, I’m sure you can notice a trend in the outfits worn by the female characters.  Jessica and Donna wear fancy tight fighting midi dresses, while Rachel wears high-waisted tight pencil skirts with beautiful thick blouses that are often made of silk.

As an East Coast native, I’ve always aired on the side of being too dressy, rather than being too casual.  Growing up I always thought I’d choose a career based on which job would let me dress up chic and sophisticated.

I could definitely see Donna wearing these two dresses.

I think that Rachel could pair this top with the pencil skirt below it to make her look casual, yet chic and professional.

This cream and black skirt with a pop of electric blue adds just the right amount of pattern to create intrigue.  Pointed-toe black pumps will take this look to the next level!

Rachel Zane could rock the hell out of this dress as well.

Only a total cool badass could pull off a dress with a slit this high.  So of course, this dress would be perfect for Donna!

This Fall let’s celebrate the beauty in fitted midi dresses and sexy, professional pencils skirts.  If you want to make your look more casual, opt for a jean pencil skirt.  Either way, if you’re looking for style inspiration, check out the “Suits” TV show for some great workplace style ideas!
