After seeing my supervising attorney’s new jacket from Charlotte Russe, I thought I should give the store another look from a career dressing perspective. Yes, I’ve been in the local store a few times with The Teen, but didn’t look at clothes for work, well, because it’s very geared to young skinny women who can get away with super-short skirts and miniscule strips of stretchy fabric, not women approaching 50 who work in law firms.

But I found a few jackets in Charlotte Russe’s online store that would be great for office wear or business casual.

Contrast Piping Belted Trench ~ $39.99 (Definitely don’t wear a skirt to work as short as the model’s)
Radiant in Red Blazer ~ $39.99 (Great pop of color. Style with a modest tank & pencil skirt or slacks, or over a sheath or print dress)
Ruffled knit moto jacket ~ $34.99 (I tried to crop the stretch skirt off. This would be beautiful with a pencil skirt or slacks.)
