How to Get Your Style Groove Back

how to get your style groove backSo here’s something we haven’t talked about in a thousand years: how to reassess your personal style and, if necessary, get your style groove back. Some fun things we’ve discussed in the past include where to start when you need style inspiration, the weekend you vs. the weekday you, how to cultivate style (vs. following trends), “next step” brands (as in, I’ve graduated from Express — what’s next?) and, many moons ago, how to revamp your entire wardrobe.

I’m going through a bit of this right now myself. This is how I’m trying to get out of my style rut, but I’d love to hear your tips as well!

Tuesday’s Workwear Report: Dahlia Botanical Print Shirtdress

Our daily workwear reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

This Hobbs shirtdress has a botanical print that is dark enough to be somewhat sedate at work while also being interesting. I think the shirtdress is going to be a popular look this season. I like the self tie, the pockets, and the concealed side zipper. The dress comes in U.S. sizes 2–14 and is $290 at Bloomingdale’s. There is also a top in the same print (for $165), which is labeled machine washable (while the dress’s description says dry clean). Dahlia Botanical Print Shirtdress

For a more affordable option, Marks & Spencer has a floral shirtdress in U.S. sizes 2–20 for $78.

Coffee Break: Faux-Leather Envelope Card Wallet

We’ve often featured little envelope card wallets for carrying cards or collecting cards at networking events, but I don’t think I’ve seen any as low as $5, like this one at Old Navy.  The gold is fun and would be easy to find in your bag (it also comes in silver and blush), and at this price, it’s something to try if you’re not sure you need a card wallet. Of course, you can find similarly affordable options at Etsy and AmazonFaux-Leather Envelope Card Wallet

Some of the ones that I would add for your consideration (in addition to Corporette, of course!) would be these:

Splurge Monday’s Workwear Report: Ruched Sheath Dress

Our daily workwear reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

This Lanvin sheath dress, which is almost sold out at Barneys, is a really fun shade of orange. It’s unusual in that it’s sleek and fitted while also having an artistic vibe and organic, drapey feel combined with the wide neckline that makes it a bit casual. I think you could dress it up or down with accessories. It has a hidden side zipper and is made from a blend of viscose, polyamide, and elastane, and it just looks really lovely. The dress is $1,550 at Barneys New York. Ruched Sheath Dress

A slightly more affordable option is at Bloomingdale’s, while two options with much lower prices are at Bluefly and JCPenney. A plus-size alternative is at Macy’s.

Weekend Open Thread

Simona MuleSomething on your mind? Chat about it here.

I have never owned a pair of white shoes in my life (at least, not past age 5). I’m not a huge fan of loafers. It is August. AND YET… suddenly I want a pair of white mules. I keep seeing stylish people wearing pointy-toed white mules, particularly with dresses and skirts, and thinking, OH, that looks nice. Poking around the web for some, this Simona mule from Paul Green looks nice (but $320). Am I crazy? Discuss. Simona Mule

Some more affordable white mules: Franco Sarto ($32 in some colors), Naturalizer ($71), Marc Fisher ($99), Sam Edelman ($119), and, for a sportier look, Superga ($89).
