Dressing Up a Sweater for Work, with a Bow-Tie Blouse.

One of my favorite ways to dress up a sweater for work, during Fall, is to add a blouse underneath. I like adding a collared blouse, a girly-detail blouse or to put on one of my several bow-tie blouses/tops underneath it and pair it with dressier pants, like I did above. The pants can be skinny, cropped (like today's), wide-legged trousers, ankle-length, elegant or even a dark pair of jeans (not distressed), sometimes even a pair of black or dark gray joggers. I showed you the way I dressed up a cropped red sweater last Tuesday on Election Day. For work I would swap those jeans for either black, tan or navy tailored pants. Today and next week I will show you 3 ways I have dressed up a sweater for work, wearing pants. You will notice each of these outfits have a little pink in them and in some of them my hair is long (pre-bob), that is because these looks are from late October (and I was still putting some pink on, to honor the month of Breast Cancer Awareness).

Dressing Up a Sweater for Work, with a Bow-Tie Blouse.

For this outfit I dressed up my Lightly-Knit, Wide V Black Sweater with a Black Satin Silk Bow-Tie Blouse underneath and added some Cropped Wide Pink Corduroy Pants. I dressed up this look furthermore with Kitten Heel Blush Suede Pumps and lots of Fun Jewelry: Light Dangly Earrings, an Arm Party, Different Rings and a Silver Ring Pendant Necklace. I have always loved the combination of Pink+Black. It is easy and feminine yet with a little edge. What do you think?! How do you dress up a sweater to wear during Sweater Weather, for work?

  4. I never look any good in pussy bow blouses but they are perfect for work and admire them on others who can pull them off!I'm petite so I always feel the bow is too much on my already short self, haha!

  5. Love pussy bow blouses!! Especially when paired with a tougher texture, it gives off a Chanel rock n roll vibe that I adore :) sadly, it's (still) not sweater weather here in Houston so ... MUACK!!

  6. Gorgeous color of your pants! Also, I like the bow!

    Thank you so much for linking up at Grace + Lace!
