Your Classic Work Staples Get a Modern Remake

Pleated Skirt. Trenchcoat. Tweed. The Tweed Pant. LBD. A Classic White Bazer. And even The White Blouse. When most people hear these pieces of clothing, what usually comes to mind is Classic and Conservative staples traditionally seen at an office. Nothing special. Although I do love many of these staples, without an extra pop of color or a print, the ensembles appear to be more on the boring side.

A-list fashion designer, Alexander Wang, known for his edgy and punk New York City girl designs. Has lately been incorporating staples similar to those listed up above into his collections. Explaining the white button downs paired with pleated skirts at his Spring 2014 show, and tweed suits making an appearance in his Resort 2014 collection. And this time, Wang has done the same with the staples listed above in his Pre-Fall 2014 collection. Although the collection may not exactly be appropriate for working in a cubicle, the pieces surely do give those pieces a fresh update. When fringe lines the back of an LBD, Eqesutrian boots take a v-neck plunge, your Classic Black tweed gets a nice pop of bright color, and your white blouse gets some cutouts. Now how about that as wardrobe for in the office?
