For this post, I took 4 jobs that I normally picture when I think of New York occupations. Yes, maybe it's completely stereotypical, but people do have these jobs...With those jobs, I made an outfit for each of them that fits for their occupation and doesn't sacrifice style.
For the lawyer, I was sure to keep everything sophisticated and polished, like a true businesswoman. Nothing could be too showy, flashy, or short. The Moschino blouse looks instantly put together with anything you put it with, and the Camilla and Marc pencil skirt adds some bright color. An Anya Hindmarch bag is demure but still functional and gorgeous. A little bit of subtle color is added in with the Bottega Veneta purple suede pumps.
I was picturing all of the Devil Wears Prada assistants for the fashion writer. Yes, they all have their own style, but I thought this outfit was fitting for lots of them. A feminine Milly bow blouse and a chartreuse pleated skirt from By Malene Birger are the base of the look. A very frilly, romantic start. To add another girly touch, this glittery Marc by Marc Jacobs cuff is perfect. These chunky Chloe heels are walkable and perfect for running errands for a demanding boss :)
The art gallery owner is typically a very stylish one, and I thought of dark and avant garde. I loved the ruffled Bamford jacket, it could be both feminine and hipster-ish. I chose the latter for this outfit. A simple black Splendid t-shirt underneath, and then the standout piece- the Alexander McQueen black sequin pants. These look amazing on the Net-a-Porter mannequin, much better than here, but these definitely take a special person to pull off. If you can, applause to you. The shoes are a minimalist cutout heel by Miu Miu.
For the interior designer, I thought of professional with a little bit more artsy feeling. Like a stepped up, more youthful lawyer. The AKA New York metallic top is so fabulous. I want it right now. Pair it with a simple Vivienne Westwood pencil skirt to draw attention to the top, and then the hot pink patent Louboutin t-straps, which I would do just about anything for.
