If you’re anything like me, your summer agenda is filling up fast with parties and events. This week, my picks have all your sunny celebrations in mind. It’s time to start planning. Now.

Rue La La's Most Coveted 6-02

  1. Whitney Stern Diamond & Gemstone Ring. A stunning cocktail ring is always a great conversation starter.
  2. LANVIN Coffee-Table Book. A great gift for any fashion lover on your list (including yourself).
  3. Proenza Schouler PS1 Large Zip Wallet. The little sister to the “anti–It bag” will double as an oh-so-chic clutch.
  4. Valentino Rockstud Leather Slingback. These edgy pumps have become a classic – just choose a color and buy them already.
  5. Tahari ASL Floral Print Dress. Sweet and refined, this will be your go-to number for summer weddings and showers.

Bringing style to your 9-to-5 routine isn’t always an easy feat. So, to help our fellow career women out, we asked three fashion-industry experts to show us how it’s done. Read up on their styling tips below, then prepare yourself for a promotion – to resident office trendsetter.

Office Styling Tips

Lynn G., Tahari Head Designer of Suits & Separates
“It’s hard to choose just one of my designs, but this black and white combo effortlessly goes from day to evening.”

Jackie N., Rue La La Fashion Director
“I always gravitate toward dresses as they’re so easy. And the color of this jacquard number is perfect for post-work cocktails.”

Leslie P., Racked National Editor
“A simple white shift is always cool. Even better? This one’s done in chic leather with seams and darts for an extra-flattering fit.”

Winning in the workplace? Obviously, it has everything to do with your razor-sharp skill. But sometimes a little extra help doesn’t hurt, either. This is when you call upon color, and all its glorious mind games – er, psychological influences.


You’ve been tasked to run this month’s big status meeting. Don’t panic – just wear black. It asserts power and authority. Next stop? Corner office.

Interviewing for your dream job? Seal the deal by wearing blue. It conveys loyalty. (Not that you look like an embezzler or anything.)

Up a little too late the night before? Show up the next morning in yellow. You’ll look and feel more alert, even without that umpteen-shot soy latte.

Our Tahari ASL Boutique opens Monday, August 5, at 11AM ET.
