For today’s business casual look, Suchitra wore grey pinstriped pants–a classic business look. But she didn’t look too Wall Street because she softened the look with a floral blouse. I love the subtle pattern mixing. The gray and white in the blouse pick up the same colors in the pants so it works.

Suchi’s sandals blend into the color of the pants and make her legs look long and lean (which they already are, but the monochrome emphasizes that). If you can’t wear sandals, a pump, boot, or even ballet flat would do.

Tank: Wet Seal
I also had stripes on, coincidentally. I threw this pinstriped blazer over a tri-colored wrap dress for a bit of pattern mixing. The wrap is a bit too low-cut for work so I layered it over a tank top. I like to keep things professional so tanks and camis are a great way to wear non-work pieces into the office.
My sling-back shoes are a nice way to elevate without wearing look-at-me shoes. They’re not too high, stay on nicely, and look good with pants or dresses.
