Where I think that women run into problems with a professional – personal style balance, is when they segment them. Two completely different categories, looks, feels and eventually, problems. I believe in a 20/60/20 percent break up between purely casual, crossover and purely professional.
The perfect example is this Swell knit skirt. Feels like a sweatshirt but translates as secretary chic.
