Bring Me A-Line (See Jane Wear)


BCBG skirt, Zara turtleneck, H&M belt, necklace from small LA boutique (?), UO shoes

I don't often post work outfits on here.  Why?  Well, they're sort of boring, consist of a lot of black, and I do a lot of traveling so sometimes comfort takes precedent over anything else.  I have my good days, but truth be told, I don't always look as stylish as say, Anh, at work. 

This particular skirt is probably a little too short for the workplace, but I'm a big believer that if you cover your legs with tights, you can get away with a lot more.  (I suppose that's just the rule breaker in me.)  Plus, wearing a turtleneck seems cancels out any sort of inappropriateness that a short skirt might convey.  Tip:  if you want to be taken seriously at a meeting, wear a turtleneck and glasses. 


Have a great weekend!

This is gorgeous, I love it! It's so simple but very, very chic and classy. I like the dark and light contrast, the skinny belt and the necklace is beautiful!

This is SO something I would wear to work! I love it! And I agree with you whole heartedly, haha if something borders on inappropriate (usually too short) I try to balance it by wearing flats or a modest shirt! I figure it's all about balance! Haha! And loving this pale skirt with the black! Gorgeous combo!

I have a very similar outfit I wear to work. My skirt is a tad bit longer in my version, but I have some skirts that are this short that I wear to work. I agree. The tights make it ok.

I agree- add tights and you are good to go for a lot of things.

TrophyBoutique said...

Oh yeah, tights solve all the world's short-skirt dilemmas in my opinion! I also have a thing with clothes I used to wear to work (when I went to my social work job). Even if I loved a pair of trousers, I just could never bring myself to wear them any time other than work. Now that I don't go to that job anymore, they just sit there all sad and rejected...I need to remix them! You've inspired me.

Josie said...

I love your necklace, doll! And I completely agree -- tights make things infinitely more appropriate, and I love how you've balanced it all with a turtleneck. Plus, this particular pair of tights looks so warm... I desperately need to get some so I can start breaking out my skirts again! Have a fab weekend!

Love the whole look, especially the light colored skirt! I agree, I think shorter + tights = get away with more.

Have a fabulous weekend!

Alicia said...

Such a cute little work ensemble! Maybe I should post a work outfit one day too... although mine are SUPER boring and basically all black. :) xx

Oh this is so cute Anna Jane!! Okay and kinda crazy...I've got a taffeta skirt (same kinda shape/little shorter) and am trying to find a sassy striped top to wear w/it for the wedding this weekend. I opened your pic and was like whoa!! Love it!

xo,

I love the outfit! I too don't post work outfits that often (though one is scheduled to post on Monday). They certainly can be boring!

The color of that skirt is perfect.

Andee Layne said...

Chas said...

I definitely agree that tights and a turtleneck cancel out the length of the skirt. I love your skinny belt!
