Shop the Look:
Whitney’s summer Smart Casual look is a great way to turn a body-con dress into a work-appropriate outfit! Simply belt an oversized blouse over a dress and some cute summer sandals. You can shop Whitney’s exact blouse and dress both from Amazon below, plus we found a similar pair of mules and belt.
What are your favorite retailers for workwear? J. Crew, J. Crew Factory, Ann Taylor, Ann Taylor Factory, LOFT, Target & T.J.Maxx
What is your business dress code? Business Casual – blazers, blouses, skirts, pants, dresses, flats or heels. Prior to the coronavirus, for 1.5 years at my firm, the dress code did NOT include jeans on Fridays. Once the stay at home order was lifted, jeans were once again against our dress code!
Describe your style in a few words. I would say my style is classic with a modern twist with my inspo coming from Loralie Gilmore, Audrey Hepburn, and Rachel Green.
How do you shop for work looks? I shop for work pieces looking for high-quality staples that will last a few years – meaning I’ll splurge on those! But then I budget shop for pieces that will mix and match with my staples!
What’s your favorite “go-to” look when you want to look and feel your best? 100% go-to piece is high-waisted jeans. These always make me feel comfortable. I pair them with stilletos, a tucked-in tank top & blazer, and I’ll take on the world!
