Let’s all find a crisp white dress shirt so we can repeat this look. And don’t forget that make-a-statement necklace because we either go big or go home.
How does one dress fashionably for work? This must be an every-morning conundrum women in corporate America face Monday to Friday. Take a lesson from my good friend Rachel here: punchy bright pleated skirt and short crisp white blazer. And because Friday after hours is the happiest of happy hours, a pair of ankle strap high heels will make for a perfect parlay from boardroom to barroom.
Herds of boys and babes swept past sidewalks in style last Saturday for the 3rd annual All About Downtown Street Fair in (where else?) Jersey City. Watching people pour in and out of the closed-off streets sure put my ability to multitask to the test: how do I guzzle my pork rib barbecue and cup of Oktoberfest AND snap photos? Somehow I managed (shoutout to the boyfriend who served as my extra pair of hands trooping with me up and […]

What perfect timing to channel your teen spirit and participate in the waist-tie comeback! When the weather is fickle and forecasts high-by-day, low-by-night temperatures, there’s no style that’s more trendy and functional than shirts, sweaters, or hoodies wrapped around the waist. See more of Emily here.
Something so model-off-duty about this look, no? The slim pants, metallic shoes, and moto jacket — all essentials to perfectly achieving the deliberate effortless look.
I’m gonna put this out there, wild prints are not for everyone, but if you’re on the hunt for a look that’s more adventurous than your normal jeans-and-tee, a safari-inspired getup might just do the job. Take it from Melody here in a soft linen, olive green utilitarian dress buckled with a skinny braided brown belt — it’s a refined alternative to your spangled brights and playful patterns.
Surrender bright color for the love of monochrome. Bring the maroon family together and call in its burgundy and cordovan cousins for a head-to-toe dark rose hue that promises a longer, leaner you. See more of Monica here.
Here is my summarization of the unspoken dress code of the modern male 9-to-5er: untucked button front shirt, air tie (when you button your shirt all the way up to the top neck button but go tie-less), slim-cut jeans or chinos slightly rolled up, and topsiders meant for bare ankles. It’s the perfect basic office ensemble outside of the confines of Don Draper’s suit-and-tie.

As we fall forward toward cooler months, keeping our summer threads’ longevity is key. See: your favorite boyfriend blazer blooming in fall foliage over a delicate mid length dress reminiscent of a negligee, et voila! You’ve just time-traveled in yesterday’s summer and tomorrow’s fall-filled future in style.
If you’re a Rebel Without A Cause, your motorbike issues creative license to your outfit. But why ride full throttle in the expected biker gang regalia of leather jackets, aviator frames, and boots when you can claim the road as your own with a denim button up, white jeans, and trainers?
On today’s roster, we’re taking a lesson from Tatjana, because when the weather presents itself like a Katy Perry song and changes temperature like a girl changes clothes, you can’t go wrong with a short leather dress with a fit-and-flare silhouette. It’s a salute to summer and a nod to autumn at the same time. And whoever said clunky, comfortable, flat footwear forfeits the “sexy” in women? Tatjana was traipsing in Babesville when I spotted her. Now how about that?
