To put a fresh spin on “Casual Friday,” I left the jeans at home and instead wore red cropped pants from Old Navy. I paired them with a black-and-white striped shirt from H&M to create a vibrant contrast. You can’t see them but low-heeled, black patent leather pumps – from Payless Shoes – polished the outfit and kept it from being too casual.
Hair + Makeup
I kept my hair and makeup natural to offset the bold colors and balance out the look.
The result was a fun combo that generated a lot of good-humored comments about how I looked ready to go sailing, buy a beret and fly to France, or join a group of mimes.
I vote for France.
