Get the Look - Keri Hilson in Miss Independent

I love me some Keri Hilson.  Her style, her confidence, and her music (except when she sang the National Anthem) got my attention from the beginning of her singing career.  To celebrate the release of her new album, No Boys Allowed, I recreated one of my favorite looks, her outfit from Ne-Yo's video for "Miss Independent".

Get the Look - Keri Hilson in Miss Independent
LC Lauren Conrad Satin-Trim Blazer, $50
DKNY Pencil Skirt with Pleats, $61 - Black Pumps, $23
Ruched Satchel, $48
Gun Black Square Rhinestone Cuff Watch, $34
Sterling Silver Hoop Earring, $15

I absolutely adore this look for many reasons: the skirt is downright bad-ass, the top is a gorgeous color, and both items complement each other.  Since we live in the real world, the outfit may not be appropriate for all workplaces, unless you add the right pieces.  I added a black blazer to cover your arms, since many offices don't allow short sleeve tops.  You can substitute the heels for shorter ones if these are too high for your job.  Keep the accessories edgy, yet sophisticated, like the cuff watch.  A black satchel will hold all of your necessities and add a polished finish to the outfit.
