Upgrade your wardrobe with elegant statement pieces that exude refinement and highlight your personality by taking a few style cues from the latest Le Chateau spring 2012 ad campaign.

Sophistication with a slight androgynous touch is one style tendency that was left aside in the recent seasons in favor of ultra feminine attire options, so seeing this tendency reflected in the latest spring 2012 campaign by Chateau is a great reason to rejoice. Focused on uber sophisticated, polished outfits, the latest campaign gives off a luxurious vibe we cannot help but be drawn towards. Business attire has rarely looked so bold and chic. Model Carola Remer looks spectacular in formal attire choices that exude refinement along with competence and confidence.

It can be easy to abide by the well known style rules of business attire and settle for uniform-like attires. However, subtly including some of the seasonal trends in your outfits can be tremendously helpful in making you stand out while still looking professional. A bold hue, a refined accessory and a special attention in creating the proportions can go a long way in helping you reflect your style personality even in professional settings.

Certain style elements are destined to get the refined luxury status and exotic skin textures, particularly snake skin in subdued tones is a great example. Classy printed high heel pumps and envelope handbags are the accessory choices endorsed by the brand for the season. Practical, neutral toned alternatives for those who want to play it safe are also available.

The value of investing in style basics for a quick professional look is beautifully illustrated in the latest campaign put together by the Canadian brand. Whether you choose a perfectly fitted blazer, a fabulous high waist pencil skirt or a classy handbag, you can quickly benefit from an instant style upgrade with one of these versatile pieces in your new season wardrobe.
