Stylish Silhouettes You Can Wear To Work

As the new week progresses, we're back for more of our power dressing styling tips, and this time around, we're all for changing up your look via unexpected silhouettes! Be ahead of the curve with dramatically structured pieces and cutting-edge style. Strong shapes and striking silhouettes are shaping up to be the go-to looks this season.

FORM AND FUNCTION


Coat, Bagasao; top, Kashieca; skirt, Miz and Moxie by Yves Camingue; earrings, SM Accessories; shoes, SM Parisian


Trend: Round Shoulders
Relaxed suiting a modern take on the round shoulder trend of the ‘60s while giving it a more feminine appeal. It’s all in the sense of proportion: Round, gentle curves work best when paired with structured pieces like this skirt. Together, they make a strikingly high-fashion look in a flash.

HUNDRED FOLDS

Trend: Origami Details
Revamp your look and be inspired with sharp folds and fabric volume that replicates origami construction. If you’re looking for an out-of-the-box office look, then might we suggest this trend that never fails to make a look more fashion forward.

SQUARED OUT


Coat and pants, Rafael Louis Gonzales, top, Bench, bag, WWW by SM, earrings, SM Accessories; shoes, SM Parisian

Trend: Square Shoulders
Shoulder pads are making their way back to our wardrobe now that we’re gearing towards the ‘80s. A cleaner silhouette and a more defined structure made this infamous retro trend look more modern and very current. Dip your toes into the look by starting off with a sleek maroon pantsuit.
