A few months ago I featured a suit alternative in this post and discussed the changing silhouette of traditional office wear. Here, is another alternative take to the suit with neutral cropped trousers and a blazer in a statement color. Orange and navy is a great color combo, but what really makes this outfit pop is the print of the top incorporating those colors. It can be tricky to match colors up with patterns, there's the fear of coming off to matchy-matchy, but when you have a neutral base, like navy, it feels more grounded. I paired the necklace that came in the same package as this top from Le Tote and went with more neutrals in the shoes and bag. Overall, I'm just loving this orange, amiright? Also, don't forget to use the code BERNADETTE25 for $25 off your 1st month membership with Le Tote, yep that's still going strong!
