Masculine cuts with a soft edge: These serious business fashions from the 10/2018 issue of BurdaStyle magazine refresh with classic vichy, strong wool fabrics, and feminine details.


The sheath is probably the most elegant piece in the business wear wardrobe, and one that accentuates the feminine shape perfectly. This style with the 7/8-sleeves stands out for its couture pleats at the neckline as well as tucked under the waistline.


This sophisticated viscose blouse is wonderfully flattering with its asymmetric waterfall neckline. The style is easy to sew, comfortable to wear and is a choice that works for the office as easily as it does for a day off with jeans and loafers.


This knee length vichy dress with the full skirt draws extra attention thanks to the exuberant floral border. The feminine cut also includes slightly overcut shoulders for a flattering and shape enhancing style.


So cool! The cut is based on the look of a wind breaker. A hood, tabs at the sleeves and back, and an elegant herringbone pattern…a fun and fresh twist.


This remarkable vichy jacquard fabric with the houndstooth pattern in 3D effect is one to elevate this coat to special status as a wardrobe masterpiece.


This flared midi skirt includes deep pleats and a glen check print fabric that has a midnight blue floral embroidery for extra dimension. A midi skirt is most flattering when worn with high heels to visually stretch the legs as well as to add a stunningly feminine finish.



The typically masculine glen check print of this blouse dress gets softened with a sweet bee print accent. The style shifts softly around the figure and includes ties at the sleeve cuffs and and a tying band at the waistline for a feminine touch.


The business ensemble is perfectly completed by these narrow trousers with pleats. They look great on their own for everyday, as well as styled with a feminine blouse as they follow the figure beautifully.


A well-fitting blazer is a foundation piece for every business wardrobe. Sweet polka dots relax the look toward the playful side. The classic piece is also a sewing skill builder that you will feel happy to have completed for years to come.
