Smart Casual in Chambray

Greetings BusiChic,

It’s coming up to a year since I left corporate to pursue life as a personal stylist, photographer and blogger and life is going pretty well.

My personal style has changed a fair bit over this time as well. Where I used to avoid wearing stiff corporate shirts like the plague, in my Smart Casual/Creative life I’ve been embracing all sorts of riffs on this classic staple, like this cold-shoulder chambray number:

A Smart Casual ensemble made up of a casual chambray shirt, asymmetrical skirt in a pencil shape and summery woven cork heels.

Can’t quite embrace a cold-shoulder-shirt in your workplace? Silk and rayon shirts are a comfortable alternative that have the polish needed in more conservative workplaces. Check out the Business Chic Pinterest Board dedicated to on-trend shirt styles.

And in case you’re wondering; yes I’ve even started carrying a backpack! I’ll let you know if I ever meet a backpack that fits in with a corporate wardrobe because they sure do make it easier to zip around town while carrying your whole life on your back rather than your arm.



  1. I really like the combo of this outfit!
    The hemline of the skirt is so unique and I really like!
