Project Runway Season 10 | Episode 5

Another business woman challenge! Each designer must create two looks using the assigned color palettes, taken from the show's teams.

Team One Color Palette: black, white, teal, fuchsia, purple

Team Two Color Palette: navy, bright blue, smokey grey, white, black

>Color: For my two designs, I used all the colors in my assigned palette except for the black, because I figured that most of the rest of the "team" would gravitate towards that.

>Left: The blouse is smoky grey with bright blue pleats to liven it up and tie it into the bottom. As for the skirt, I put a twist on the classic work silhouette with a fishtail pencil skirt with a military-esque waist.

>Right: For the second look, I wanted to do something very different from the first, so I went with a smart jacket. The top is navy, and the mid-to-bottom is bright blue (I tried to stick with similar textures and fabric that the team did on the show with this). The skirt is simple so that it doesn't distract from the attention of the jacket
Styling and accessories...

The styling would be very clean and minimal, since it is business wear, so I went with natural makeups and a simple ponytail. As for the accessories, I also kept it minimal because lots of them can be distracting and inappropriate in a work space. I specifically avoided peep-toe shoes, because they're a big no-no for work.

All accessories are from Project Runway's Lord & Taylor wall.
