Blake Lively looks flawless in floor-length gowns, but when the actress stepped out in NYC working a fiery Michael Kors blazer ($1,595) with matching cropped pants ($695) and caged Christian Louboutin sandals ($1,695), she managed to top herself. She accessorized her bright-red suit and edgy heels with onyx hoop earrings and a loose updo. Channel Blake's sleek style on a budget with this red Pendleton blazer ($228) and red Rag & Bone trousers ($290) at the office, then add a statement necklace for happy hour.
Red pants have been a hot trend for some time now, and while at an event in NYC, model Coco Rocha showed off a new ladylike and office-appropriate way to rock them. By pairing her red wide-leg trousers with a sleeveless ivory blouse with a contrasting collar, Coco gave her look a beautifully feminine twist. Simple black heels and small stud earrings served as subtle accessories. Topped with a black blazer, Coco's ensemble can just as easily work at the office. Then after work, switch the ladylike blouse for this Free People sheer black version ($88) for a sassier feel. To get Coco's latest look, shop similar pieces below.
