Zara Top (similar)/ Vintage Skirt (similar)/ Falke Socks / Zara Heels / Vintage Rings

There's nothing that stumps you more than putting together a look for work that isn't boring or expected, right? The key for me is clean lines with a bit of detail. This black long sleeve top and white pencil skirt seem pretty basic but if you look closely there are some nice details that elevate the outfit. A bit of fray at the neckline and burnout in the top and the paperbag waist and midi length of the skirt add some of that unexpected. Finally for a bit of surprise (and one of my personal favorites): socks with pumps. The classic Mary Jane style and pale pink color contrast nicely against the black sock and bring the outfit full circle. Check out the links above to shop my look!
