One of my style icons, the fabulous Anna dello Russo, has said that “gold is the new black“. However, for my job, black is still the new black. Here’s a quick view of a typical work “uniform”.

(blazer: vintage; shirt: F21; pants: JCrew; sandals: Dolce Vita)

It’s a pretty basic black & white look and the blazer pulls everything together with its’ polka dot pattern and 70’s cut. I always keep in mind proportions so if I’m doing a longer length on top, the bottom should be tailored to achieve a look that’s long and lean.

For footwear, I wanted something with a bit of an edge to ground the look. With their straps, buckles and studs these sandals are punk perfection!
