Bringing Spring to the Office

One of the things that I love about fashion is that there are so many options available, it is almost impossible to get bored. I have talked a lot about getting outside of my box and today is no different. I found this leather skirt option and I was instantly hooked. I knew that I wanted to find a way to style it. Leather is a tricky fabric to work with in that if you style it wrong the entire outfit can wind up looking cheap. So, here are my guidelines for out of the box spring style.Bringing Spring to the Office
If you choose to go outside the box with style then the key to pulling it off is to choose only one daring piece. In this case, the leather skirt was the daring piece, so it was important to select traditional pieces as the other options. In this case, the pink blazer is very traditional and a fabulous option to bring out the stark contrast of the white leather skirt.  As an alternative if the white leather skirt is not up your ally, then you could choose a white pant option to pair with the pink blazer. Remember that fashion is fun and one of the best things that you can do is open your mind and your heart and try something new.  Now its your turn to sound off..what new trends are you rocking lately?
