Black trousers, a pinstripe blouse, practical heels—sounds like the makings of a pretty boring work look, right? Punky metallic accents are a quick fix for that. To ensure the ensemble remains polished enough for the office, however, a careful mix of elegance and edge is key—think ladylike shoes with teensy tiny studs (open-toe sandals feel cooler than traditional pumps), and chainlink hardware on a more conservative satchel. Now balance out all that perfectly pressed cotton and silk with a faded denim jacket, and admit it: With an outfit like this, Monday's not so bad.
