Rat Race

A collection of fitted button down tops & Blair Waldorf inspired dress.

Peaked Shoulders.
You learn something new everyday! From the moment I got this button down top, I’ve always wondered what would be the best way to describe the shoulders. Then one fine day, I chanced upon it on a fashion website & had my ‘ah-ha!’ moment. Hence, why the title of this outfit is Peaked Shoulders (insert major pleased face). The great thing about this top aside from its fabulous blunt studs & peaked shoulders is that it allows you to not only wear it as a rigid corporate attire but makes a pretty awesome fitted casual top as well.

Corporate Cut Outs. 
Adding a twist to your usual corporate shirts. This one comes with the basic figure flattering cut in unique shades of teal grey & a muddy mustard yellow with functional buttons all the way down the middle & at the cuffs. This fitted shirt comes with cut outs at the shoulders instantly giving this basic top an edge above the rest. Pair it totally buttoned up with a modest knee length skirt or slacks for a chic office look, or pair it with the first few buttons undone with jeans, shorts, mini skirts or anything casual for a quick & simple look.

Military Colour Block.
A chiffon number. Out of the 3 tops in this post, this one has gotta be the one that has the looser fit. It’s crafted out of a rich sheer chiffon material, edgy round gold buttons down the front & bold contrasting shades of bright orange & navy blue. This top will work well for anyone who is looking to add a pop of colour to either their college presentation attire or just everyday for work. Simple slacks & pencil skirts will give this look the extra corporate edge, while pairing it with jeans or simple chino shorts will make this shirt a great casual piece!

Well, this is rather embarrassing. As I don’t watch Gossip Girl, I didn’t know that Blair Waldorf was not acted by Blake Lively. In my head, it’s always been, Blair Waldorf is Blake Lively. Well, moving pass that! As Blair attends a private school, quite a number of her outfits has to be school appropriate. As this dress comes with an incredibly modest pleated high neck, long sleeves with black stretchable cuffs, it gives a very prep school chic appeal. While the exposed back and thigh skimming length keeps it from looking too preppy. Pair this dress with a brightly coloured hairband (I know you have some!) & tights for an extra Blair appeal.
Dress best for petites, but if you love it wearing it as a long top with leggings will just do the trick!
