In The Navy
Fretting because your legs are just awaking from their winter hibernation (read: dry and ashy) and not quite skirt-ready? Turn your winter blues into cheerful and stylish leg-prep procrastination with these nine razor-free options for work bottoms. From high waists and flared legs to silk brocade and leather, there's an option for every corporate uniform to bring just enough spark to your Monday-through-Fridays. Stumped for styling? Pay homage to signature Parisienne polish à la Carine and keep your top half simple via a fluid silk blouse or a blazer in a corresponding shade (suits are so hot right now). Now you can use your lunch break to book that wax appointment.
