To say that personal style can be inspired by anything may seem like a stretch. Between our favorite style mavens, Vogue, and the internet, the world is already full of fashion inspiration. But the truth is, style doesn’t evolve by constantly imitating itself. It progresses by finding inspiration in the ordinary.

That’s not to say that we will all be changing the future of fashion. Not every outfit inspired by something unexpected will be avant-garde or one-of-a-kind, but getting in the habit of finding new sources of inspiration will spark creativity and confidence in your own styling ability. When finding inspiration, a few key elements can give a lot of guidance, including color schemes, lines or structure, textures, and patterns.

While I was picking up a few office essentials at Target, I decided to create an office-appropriate look based on some of the basics you might find in a home office environment. One of my greatest sources of inspiration has always been color, so it was the first thing I drew from in creating today’s look. One color that caught my attention that would go cute in the office was this burgundy bench/stool. I was also drawn to the neutrals of this cute daily planner. The result of this inspiration was this camel cowl neck sweater and burgundy lip (color stand out 250)– office-appropriate, understated, and classic. The sophisticated but simple style of these items made me want to dress up my look which I completed with a pencil skirt and heels.

    Love this look, and great inspiration! Found the top at Target to pair with a burgundy pencil skirt I already own, but wondering how you smashed to tuck it in without looking too lumpy? The top is a tunic and is quite long. Thanks!
