work hard, style hard: work capsule wardrobe

October 6, 2021

The alarm clock rings, you hit snooze (once, maybe twice), throw open your closet door, and ask yourself that one crucial, burning question: what am I going to wear today? Yes, the past couple of years have certainly thrown a wrench in that routine, but whether you’re heading back to the office or looking to step up your #zoomlife tabletop looks, it’s time to start reinvesting in your work wardrobe. Feeling confident in your weekday looks helps you seize the day like the #girlboss you are, but after an extended stint of rocking athleisure practically every day of the week, the time has come to relearn how to do the whole getting dressed thing. Consider this your primer.

For Fall ’21, we created an exclusive work capsule featuring three suits from the new Collection: the plaid Jazzy Suit, the brown Academy Suit, and the black Dinner Suit. We asked our Design Team to come up with four different looks for each ensemble—matching, separates, and of course, mixed and matched across all of the seasonal suits from the Collection. The result? 12 killer outfits that will take your professional dressing up a notch (or two or three!). Get all of the details behind each look below, and watch the video to see how our Stylists added their final touches with shoes and accessories to bring it all together.

Try the complete Jazzy suit for some head-to-toe plaid action. Then, add a touch of whimsy with a long sleeve graphic tee, topping it all off with a scarf.

Improvise by styling the Jazzy Jacket back to the Patch Pocket for a more casual feel. Then, pair back to an easy-to-wear blouse with a neutral print like the Morse Code Top.

We love a cardigan styled as a downplayed blazer. Let the Jazzy Kick Flare do all the talking by balancing your look with solid colors.

Go for a dressed-up vibe by styling the Jazzy Jacket back to the sleek black Dinner Trouser. A solid white blouse is the perfect top to complete this elegant look.

Style an all-black look with the Dinner Suit, then add in a pop of print by pairing back to the floral Boxy Top. In an outfit this chic, you’ll be ready to bust those glass ceilings.

Snakeskin is the ultimate power print. Style back to black trousers and the ruffled Adorn Pullover for a dressed-up effect.
