When I think of business casual attire, I think of boring attire for the most part. Yes, it’s better than being in a pencil skirt and blazer if you can wear jeans, but why not spice it up to business CHIC rather than casual.

You all know that I’m obsessed with black, especially black denim so I’m wearing my favorite pair of Citizen’s of Humanity here (do yourself a favor and go buy them now). I added a fun pop of color with a chic jacket, a classic J. Crew statement necklace and a fun hat that’s appropriate for summer weather.

The final add one for me is the black leather strappy heels. Footwear says a lot about a person and I think black leather heels will always be a classic. I love these because they are open toed, allowing you to show off that cute pedicure you’ll be rocking all summer long.

Grab your planner, briefcase or if you’re like me, Kate Spade tote and you’re a women who is ready for anything, anywhere! Happy shopping!
