Look for Less: Leather Ruffle Outerwear

Is this jacket appropriate for work? :

Yes. The jacket can serve as a replacement to your blazer. I would wear it with a pair of slacks or a knee-length skirt. I would advise against wearing gaudy jewelry with this jacket. The ruffle neckline will draw attention on its own. You don’t want to cause too much of a distraction with big jewelry. Stud earrings and a simple chain would look great. Another thought: This jacket can also be used to “dress-up” your “dress-down” day outfit. Some employers allow staff to dress casual one day out of the week (usually Friday). So, use your casual Friday to make a style statement.
