How to Dress Casual if You Have Dark Hair
The following images show how to achieve a flirty intellectual look for a female attorney or professional with dark hair. None of these outfits, however, are appropriate for the office. Instead, they are for casual events or days off. The last outfit could be worn to a conference because it includes a jacket, although the style of the jacket is too revealing for the office or a courtroom. (Click on an image for a larger preview.)
The Casual Look
Casual does not mean sloppy, as these images confirm. The last image deserves further comment since it is the only one that features a jacket. In general, a jacket is the most effective outfit for office wear. Some jackets are designed not to need a blouse. This one, however, does require a blouse, but the featured top is not the kind that would be suitable for office wear. If a more formal blouse were worn, then this outfit would be appropriate for the office. A simple change in the blouse worn is what makes this a casual outfit.
High Contrast in a Casual Outfit
A woman with dark hair and light or medium skin tone often looks impressive if her outfit picks up this medium to high contrast. All these photos contain outfits with medium to high contrast except the one with the woman in the red hat and the one with the woman in the beige sweater (photos 6 and 7 respectively).
