Story of our lives: Thumbing through our wardrobes in a hazy-eyed attempt to pick something out for work. It’s not only a huge time-suck, but let’s be real, it can trigger an onslaught of anxiety. And, sure, you may have landed that dream gig, but now comes an entire puddle of worries about what to wear to the office. Hint: Don’t reach for that crop top.
You don’t want to cause an HR nightmare nor do you intend to teeter into nine-to-five snoozeland — and you also can’t afford to fork over thousands for a luxe upgrade. Dilemma, much? That’s where Modern Citizen
comes into play. The S.F-based e-tailer caters to these very predicaments. With a mini-collection hitting the site each month, Modern Citizen creates all-encompassing sartorial pieces for career-driven women that stretch from office appropriate to out-and-about.
"We're creating a lifestyle destination focused on a specific customer, the Modern Citizen — a woman who's sophisticated, ambitious, and leading an interesting, creative life,” says founder Jess Lee. “Every month, we deliver a curated collection that reflects global trends, with a focus on elegance with a distinctive edge."
This month, the company has curated a can’t-miss line of items inspired by garden parties — think streamlined offerings with pops of neon. See our favorites from the collection after the jump and give your closet a professional oomph, you know, without whittling down your wallet. Finally, dressing for work just got a helluva lot easier!
