A Matter of Business
When I first moved to New York three years ago, I had a job at Christie’s auction house and thus had to buy a slew of “work appropriate” apparel. Club Monaco, Banana Republic, and J.Crew became my best friends as I hid my more eclectic style behind tailored pants and conservative hemlines. Since leaving that job I have not had to wear such sophisticated business clothing but kept everything just in case. Last Friday was packed with back to back meetings, some being more formal than others. So, after toying around with and being entirely unsatisfied by some a-line skirts and high-waisted trousers, I reached in the back of closet to test out an old pair of black Club Monaco suit pants. Turns out, when paired with an interesting top and a raspberry lip color they’re actually much sexier and edgier than I ever thought they’d be. Just what I needed for a day focused around business that allowed my own sense of style.
