Love Your Work Style – Talbots Geometric Print Dress & Work Top

Talbots has a brand new Go Graphic collection that is full of cute pieces in sophisticated yet office-friendly colors and prints.

I love this Talbots Geometric-Triangles Dress ($159 in regular and petite sizes), which features a bold print paired with a simple and classic silhouette.

The pattern placement is designed to flatter – the lighter blue color creates a subtle vertical line down the center of the dress. (This would also be a perfect dress for a Mad Men style post – sniff.)

My other favorite piece is this Talbots Medallions & Stripes Foulard Blouse ($89.50-$99 in regular, petite, plus, and plus petite; washable). This fall top looks fantastic with jeans for an easy business casual look and could also be dressed up with suit separates.

Professional, Smart & Chic – Ellen Tracy Mixed Media Sheath Dress

A work-appropriate look you can get excited about. 

I first admired this stylish work dress when browsing for items to feature in Mad Men Style (sniff), but the reward for waiting to feature it is that it’s on sale now (albeit sold out in some sizes).

I love the abstract floral print and the subtle navy and black color-blocking.
