    I wasn't even thinking about the lace back, I think it may look bigger in the picture. It doesn't show a bra and the fabric covers the whole top of the shoulder. With a black jacket the color would only pop out a little, but is this enough to be "colorful"?

    What kind of shirt do you wear? Any sample pictures would help everyone!

    I wear a black blazer and black pants with a light pink button-up underneath.

    Honestly, I always wear a jacket even over a shirt with sleeves. It's more professional.

    This shirt is a no-go because it is sleeveless and because of the lace back. Get a blazer or pick a different shirt.

    Cute shirt!

    Definitely needs a jacket. Could you get a short-sleeved jacket? I have one and I think it looks nice.

    For example--

    It's a cute top, but I wouldn't wear it to work unless I planned on keeping a sweater or jacket over it.

    What makes you think that jacket looks casual? Is it the short sleeves, or the somewhat youthful style, or something else? I wouldn't pair it with the white jeans as posted, but the jacket itself seems tailored and put-together to me.

    These things vary geographically...But short length, material, tie waist, short sleeves and general shape are casual.:2cents:

    It's not a jacket that I would consider for an interview. I wouldn't wear it, mostly because of the tie waist, it makes it more casual. I might wear it if I was putting it on over a dress, but with the sleeves being so short it might not look right, it might look like I was trying to cover up the fact that it was sleeveless or a halter top type bodice.

    It would be something that I might wear to work though.

    you intrigued me with the short sleeve jacket... but I already have a black regular jacket and don't want to buy another.... There are so many choices!

    How about this for under black jacket-

    I love that top! For the interview I'd wear it under a jacket; it's versatile enough to work without a jacket.

    The skirt looks cute too.
