#TheOfficeSeries - The One with Tweed and Pearls



Hi Everyone!

I am so excited about today's post because this look was inspired from the Chanel 2020 Cruise collection. Virginie Viard took over as the artistic director of Chanel due to untimely death of Karl Lagerfeld. She did a phenomenal job with the new collection. The cruise collection has colorful tweed jackets, two tones, masculine jackets/trousers and ruffles. Sharing few of my favorite looks (photos via chanel.com lookbook) from the collection and how I took inspiration to use my existing closet and style my office outfit:



As you can see, I took inspiration from most of the outfits shared. I paired my masculine trouser in rust color with two toned tweed jacket and completed the look with pearl necklace. You may feel this is too much color for work but the colors compliment each other so well. It does not look overwhelming at all.

As you know, I started #TheOfficeSeries to make sure it is as real as possible. I wanted to talk about important topics such as sustainable and conscious buying. Most retailers such as Zara and H&M have come under a lot of pressure to look at sustainable fashion. Fashion industry is one of the major polluting industries and it emits more carbon into environment than any other industry. Due to fast fashion, people bought 60% more garments they did in 2000. This has caused significant damage to environment in the form of polluted rivers, oceans, 10% increase in carbon emission and dried up water sources. Key to a sustainable and fashionable wardrobe is to invest in classic and timeless staples. In this series I am reusing my existing wardrobe which I bought almost 5-7 years ago. Let us not get lost in the sea of consumerism and be smart with shopping choices. Request you to look at the bigger picture before shopping.
