Sometimes, people who work in corporate environments ask me for advice on what to wear in the office. Usually I just feel really bad for them, because I can pretty much wear whatever I want to my job.
However, those people should pay attention now (and also read this post) because a few celebrities this week offered some chic examples of conservative yet fashion-forward dressing.
There was Marion Cotillard's Dior pencil dress with subtle embellishment around the neckline -- a feature that also jazzed up Zoe Kazan's cute-yet-sophisticated Miu Miu blouse. Taylor Schilling made a simple violet Roland Mouret shift look cool by pairing it with bright red python heels, while Chloe Moretz did the same to a pair of simple grey trousers, sporting them with a youthful floral print blouse. Jessica Alba, too, provided a lesson in trouser-blouse pairings. Meanwhile, Gia Coppola wore a conservative version of a crop top with the coolest below-the-knee skirt we've ever seen by Proenza Schouler.
