When I think of Bebe, I think of club goers in stretchy shiny fabrics. When I heard Bebe makes work appropriate clothing I assumed that the type of work was one where provocative/form-fitting clothing is appropriate. Maybe I was wrong or Bebe is changing?
[Enter Bebe's new campaign]
There are pieces that are seemingly good separates.
Flipping through the pages of Vogue I saw an ad for Bebe's (dare I say, Chanel inspired) tweed suit. A Chanel suit is on my sartorial bucket list but after crazily passing on a classic NWT one at Depot-Vente de Passy, I cannot imagine bringing myself to pay MSRP. I have a couple of Theory gratian blazers but they are missing that certain je ne sais quoi.
The Bebe suit seems like it may be by quick fix for now. Tweed: check; Slim cut: check; Multicolor: check; Metallic accents: check; Fringed ends: check; Wide collar to feature brooch: check!!! I still fear that the suit will not pass my inspection but the suit comes in petite sizing and can be returned at any of their brick and mortar stores.
Have you found Bebe items that are wearable for work?
I will report back when I receive the vest and tweed suit pictured above!
