Draped in Fabulous! - Working girl chic Tuesday

Welcome to another Working Girl Chic Tuesday! 
  Today we are going to chat about how fabulous a draped skirt can be at your workplace.  Often I think of draping on elegant dresses worn to galas or cocktail parties. However, draping can be just as chic at the office.   A draped skirt is a great way to be ultra-feminine in the corporate world, while still being completely appropriate!

Today I've picked out two draped skirt options for your consideration.  If you are in a workplace that is a little more progressive you can go with the abbreviated version, if not, then opt for the longer version.  Either way, I love the look of these skirts paired with a lace top.  Whether it be all over cream lace or a white tank piped in black lace, this will make your look even more ladylike. The key to making this look work-appropriate is pairing it with a structured blazer. This jacket should hit you right above the hip for the most flattering look.  If it falls below this point and covers the draping of the skirt then you will have added volume.  Very unfortunate!  All you need now is a uber-cool chain and pendant necklace, multiple chain bracelets and a pop-of-color handbag.  Also, since we are pushing the trend envelope on the draped skirt, pair this look with a classically beautiful pair of black pumps.  What a fabulously chic way to work it!
