Outfit of the Week: Shine on Shine

By

The clean cotton sleeves of this J.Crew button-up perfectly offset the shine factor of its brocade pattern. Tuck it into a pleated crepe midi skirt, like this one in navy, and accent it with simple-but-unusual jewelry, like these silver earrings by Trademark and a textured silver clutch. Make the look even more casual by throwing on Nicholas Kirkwood's basic black-and-blue sandals — they're comfortable and yet still fancy enough to transition from the office to dinner.
