The modern woman wears many hats, and for each hat, there should be a number of corresponding outfits to suit the situation. After all, it would be a fashion fans pas to wear your party dress when donning your work hat or your power suit when we are wearing your party hat: mistakes in line with wearing white after labor day or wearing black panties under white pants. That is why it is so important that we have separate outfits for work, play, and travel. Here are some ideas for outfits to go with each of your many dimensions.

Work

Work outfit

Tailored
For a tailored work look, you want to emphasize a strong silhouette, adding structured accessories. Consider an all white look with a Banana Republic top and matching tailored slacks. Add metal cuffs to the wrists with a matching statement ring. Add a classy neutral clutch with coordinating Manolo Blahnik pumps.

Suits
When it comes to suits, you can mismatch separates or keep your pieces together. Try Diane Furstenberg blazer with matching pants in a beautiful ochre tone. Layer it it with a silky button down blouse and some cat eye sun glasses for a power look. Finish with a geometrical Proenza Schouler Clutch, delicate choker and showstopping Calvin Klein sandals.

Play

Sequins
For women, the ultimate playtime clothing would have to be the party dress. You can’t go wrong with black sequins, and Ashish is the name in sequined dresses. Match with killer heels.

Classic
If you’re looking for a more demure classic approach, you may want to try a Lanvin. Try a one shoulder design with a structured ruffle and figure hugging pencil skirt in a neutral beige. Add a colorful clutch for a color contrast.

Athleisure
If you want to wear your yoga pants all day long, fashionistas say, “Go ahead!” Invest in pieces which combine fashion with function., like Vie Active’s compression tights with moisture wicking performance. Accessorize with a pair of sleek sunglasses and a structured leather jacket to keep things classy.

Travel

Mixed Prints
Travel clothing can be tricky. You need to be comfortable and practical, yet you need to arrive ready to make a statement, and running through airports in stiletto heels may not be the best idea. One way of maintaining comfort and style while traveling is by sticking to soft fabrics and bold prints. Why not go for an Alberta Ferretti multicolored printed shirt with blue and white multi patterned pants? Add a panama hat for an add of mystery and keep the jewelry to a minimum. Complete your look with Robert Vivier patent flats and brightly colored Globe Trotter suitcases to complement your color scheme.

Classic
Add and air of intrigue with a gray transparent Maison Martin Margiela trench coat. Layer over a white shirt and tailored slacks and pack the rest of your fashions in a Bettega Venteta suitcase.
