Business Formal Jacket with a twist

A high-end quality business jacket is THE investment piece that every working woman should have in her wardrobe. The styling possibilities are infinite. From business formal to smart casual, it will be a piece that you'll wear over and over again. You can combine it with pants, skirts, dresses or jumpsuits.

I especially love this jacket from Roland Mouret. It’s crafted from a double wool crepe in this beautiful coral color. I love it so much that I have this same jacket in black and red as well. You can easily dress it up and down, from a business cocktail party to a day-to-day business formal, business or smart casual look.

From business formal to smart casual: How to style it?

I usually wear it closed with a pair of wide-leg black classic pants or a black or ivory pencil skirt but this time I choose to wear it open for a more relaxed feel yet still in business style mode. If you work in a more relaxed and creative environment style it with a pair of large/ straight black, grey or blue jeans, trendy sneakers and a t-shirt for a fresh take.

When it comes to business jackets, I like to invest in timeless pieces that last season after season. It’s for sure a smart investment purchase that you'll enjoy for many years.

Which attributes does the color coral reflect in a business environment?

Coral is the color of individuality, warmth, acceptance and positivity. It's a great color choice if this color fits you. I have a light neutral color skin type, which means that I can wear warm and cold color tones. Combine it with black, navy or ivory for a more conservative look or with different shades of greens, blues or purple for a more modern look.

How can you define the business formal dress code?

Business Formal is the most conservative style of all. Conservative should not mean dull and uninteresting. Feel free to express your personality through your clothing even in formal wear. The most important thing is to find the right balance between a professional image and style. Choose interesting cuts in high quality fabrics and complement your look with timeless accessories to make the difference.
