I’m gearing up for Sunday’s Ultimate Fashion Experience (if you haven’t purchased your ticket yet, you can do so here)! One of my favorite designers to be featured in the show is TallyReNee (learn about their design philosophy here).
TallyReNee’s pinup collection draws on an all-American color palette and features wedge heels, polka-dot neckerchiefs, bustier-inspired tops, flirty skirts, collar necklaces, and of course, red lips.
To translate that look for a work environment, I donned slim red pants (for a dose of sexy), ultra-feminine, bow-topped platforms in navy (to keep the all-American vibe going), and a strong collar necklace for a bit of an edge.
If red pants are “too much” for your taste (c’mon—live a little!), I’d recommend swapping them out for a fitted pencil skirt in a deep, bold color (dark turquoise, anyone?) and a polished red lip.
While wedges and platforms inspire a pin-up feel, t-strap shoes also work to the same purpose, and add a bit of femininity.
