The Loft is wowing me this season!
The Loft is the perfect retailer for affordable business casual fashion. I was excited to see how they styled two of the big trends for 2018; the color mustard and the tie front pant! I have linked a lot of items in this post for you to shop. There are two ways to click and shop…I will hyperlink within the text to the items and also include a link in a photograph collection throughout the post. I hope this is easy for you and I welcome any feedback you may have.
Spring Color Trend: Mustard
I am normally not one who wears bright, bold colors. I have seen this mustard color everywhere this season, so when I saw this amazing top at Loft, I knew I had to try it. I totally thought I was going to hate it when I tried it on, but I didn’t! It is a great top for the office and could also be worn untucked with a more casual pant or jean and still look great.
I have linked the top I am wearing here along with several others from the Loft and Forever 21 below. You can find options to brighten up both your workplace and your weekend fun! The great thing about the Loft is the sales that they run. They are consistently posting 40% off and if you shop online regularly, you can usually find what you want for a deal! I have to mention that the Blouson Cardigan below is currently only $20 and comes in 7 colors!! If your office is anything like mine…FREEZING, then you need this! It would style great with pants or open over a dress or skirt outfit.
2018 Pant Trend: Tie Front
I love these tie front pants from Loft! I was worried the tie on the front would make me look bulkier than I am, but was pleasantly surprised once I tried them on. You can wear the tie as a knot like I am in the photos, or you can tie it in a bow right along the waistline.
I am wearing the Marisa Fit which is their straighter cut pant. They also make them in a curvier fit, called Julie Fit. I found these to be true to size (TTS) and if you flip flop between two sizes, I would get the smaller size. Don’t you just love it when retailers flatter you vs. when you have to size up? I do! I have linked both of the fits for you below and they are currently $20 off! I included other tie front pants options below as well. Loft is currently offering free shipping if you spend more than $75!
I can’t say enough about the Loft and this is NOT a sponsored or paid post! I was talking with one of the store managers the other day and I mentioned how I have shopped at the Loft off and on over the years, but it had been some time since it was really one of my go-to stores. I told him that I remembered the Loft being more casual in the past and he confirmed that they are carrying more of the “workwear” look now than in years past.
Other Outfit Details
You can’t forget about the details!!
I love this brand for a little splurge on jewelry pieces. Her line is mid range price…nice jewelry that is not costume nor fine jewelry. It is excellent quality and fun to give or receive as a gift! Most pieces in the Kendra Scott line are under $100.
Bags: Nine West & Shein
The large tote is perfect for work and can fit a tablet or small laptop. I found this tote at the Nine West Outlet on sale and I can’t find the same bag online to link for you. I found a very similar bag by BP at Nordstrom and linked it below. It is less than $40!
The small crossbody bag is from a retailer named Shein. This is a duplicate of the designer bag by Rebecca Minkoff found here for $295. The quality of Shein products vary depending on what you purchase, but this bag was by far my favorite find and good quality for the price. It is currently only $19 and still available here!
Shoes: Nine West
You will soon learn I have an obsession with Nine West for all my work shoe needs! These basic black heels are perfect for pants or skirts/dresses and they have a lower heel for comfort. There are just some days I can’t wear the 4” heels and I don’t feel like a kitten heel either…these are perfect for that! These heels come in 5 colors and are currently 30% off…linked below!
