    As college students, our foray into the world of full-time work will (hopefully) come sooner or later. This means that our day-to-day uniform of jeans and a tee are no longer applicable and a more sophisticated wardrobe is necessary. Since I recently landed my first 9 to 5 office job for the upcoming summer, I've been daunted by the task of creating a look that is less casual and more conservative while still adhering to my personal sense of style. The images I've been gravitating towards are definitely more polished: longer hemlines, impeccably tailored trousers, structured silhouettes, and muted palettes. However, the appeal is in the brilliant pops of color in unexpected places, the messy updos, the play on different textures and prints, and the strong accessories that offset the somewhat banal look that is often associated with office wear. I can't wait to get my hands on some mid-calf pleated skirts, school-boy blazers, camel accessories, and leg-lengthening trousers. In the meantime, here are some images currently inspiring me.

    Mary Kate Steinmiller, fashion market editor of Teen Vogue, looking chic and workplace appropriate in her printed skirt: The pop of color underneath neutral basics adds interest:The undone hair and bright coral lips from J. Crew's Spring 2011 Ready-to-Wear line are a perfect juxtaposition to the clean lines and overall crispness:
    The structured satchel and heels on this model add class to her more casual ensemble:
