Business Casual Fashion

I was honored to be the July speaker for the W Hotel San Francisco‘s amazing Inspire series. A wonderful group of ladies and gentlemen joined me for a delicious luncheon at the W’s restaurant Trace where we chatted about workwear and business casual fashion.

Below are a few of my tried and true business casual fashion tips:

  1. You want to feel confident & comfortable – Find a style that suits your body type and meets your company’s dress code requirements
  2. Gentlemen – Khakis are not slacks. Khaki  colored slacks are fine, but khakis are not slacks!
  3. The best way to go from day-to-night is to add accessories: Statement jewelry & killer heels for the ladies and a fun jacket, watch, or messenger bag for gentlemen.

And the best, and easiest way to go take your work look out for a night on the town? A bold red lip!
