We tried the look by pairing J.Crew's printed trousers (<a href="http://www.net-a-porter.com/am/product/318666" target="_blank">$150 at Net-a-Porter</a>) with a nubby Chloe sweater (<a href="http://www.net-a-porter.com/product/314216?cm_mmc=LinkshareUS-_-Hy3bqNL2jtQ-_-Custom-_-LinkBuilder&siteID=Hy3bqNL2jtQ-9goSUScI7Yn.L_N9lQaYEgn" target="_blank">$995 at Net-a-Porter</a>) and smart smoking loafers (<a href="http://www.gap.com/browse/product.do?cid=56991&vid=1&pid=253064&scid=253064022" target="_blank">$39.95 at The Gap</a>). A woven chain bracelet (<a href="http://us.topshop.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?beginIndex=1&viewAllFlag=&catalogId=33060&storeId=13052&productId=6331079&langId=-1&sort_field=Relevance&categoryId=208714&parent_categoryId=208582&pageSize=20&refinements=category~[210065|208714]&noOfRefinements=1n" target="_blank">$25 at Topshop</a>) adds a touch of bling to the look while still feeling sophisticated.

A lipstick-red leather tote from Marni (<a href="http://www.mytheresa.com/us_en/two-tone-leather-shopping-bag-154916.html?siteID=Hy3bqNL2jtQ-FSzXJi8UzgMZzi3Jrhr5uQ&quid=61058463421S1091658T&gkid=acx&utm_source=Affilate&utm_medium=INT&utm_campaign=2" target="_blank">$367 at MyTheresa</a>) picks up the red in the trousers, and is roomy enough to stash work essentials.

Satomi Kawakita's diamond bar earrings (<a href="https://catbirdnyc.com/shop/product.php?productid=17958&cat=311&page=1" target="_blank">$450 at Catbird </a>) lend a hint of glitz.
