Fearless and Fly

By Victoria T. Davis and Ebony Chappel

Striking out on a new, adventurous path can prove to be daunting. The thought of playing it cool and recoiling into a more mundane approach may at first seem ideal when faced with the startling realities of uncertainty but as the saying goes, anything worth having is worth fighting for.

These sentiments can be applied to so many different aspects of daily life, they are quite relevant in the area of personal style. For years, women in corporate America had to carefully tailor their fashions to fit within the confines of what is considered appropriate. Does an animal print ensemble belong in the boardroom habitat? Can someone with my body type wear that? Is bold color ok? The answer to all of these questions is a resounding yes!

The Spring 2015 work trends will keep you looking fly and fearless; 70s era silhouettes, bold patterns and color, and chic yet classic separates with unusual modern details.
