When shopping for 9-to-5 finery, we're constantly on the hunt for pieces that'll liven up our existing staples. It can be so tough to strike the right balance between polished and cool, so we keep coming back to the same, old brands. Imagine our excitement when wardrobe workhorse Lord & Taylor introduced the dazzling, casual line perfect for our office, 424 Fifth.
Drawing inspiration straight from the runway, the clothes cater to the fashion-forward professional with a relaxed dress code at work. The good news is, the price-point is about as far from the runway as you can get. The line delivers tons of under-$100 offerings with a few higher ticket items maxing out at $250. As for the styles, expect elegant, full skirts, career denim, and athletic-influenced pieces that all keep climbing into our shopping carts en masse.
Now you, too, can fall head-over-heels for 424 Fifth's pops of bright color, bonded-mesh loveliness, and bold, graphic prints. (Including a certain palm-tree jacket this editor is already eyeing for spring.) The entire collection is available in stores and online at Lord & Taylor, so go wild. Just try not to make your coworkers too jealous, okay?
