Derek Lam's Ultra-Chic Cure For The Mondays

Why does the weekend never seem long enough? It's a question we ponder all the time. Come each Sunday afternoon, we're already contemplating how to cure an inevitable case of the Mondays. And, we're pretty sure one of the quickest ways to ditch our bum attitude starts from the outside in. So, we've taken a cue from 10 Crosby by Derek Lam's fall lookbook and created a chic power outfit that'll have you strutting from meeting to meeting like you're Karlie Kloss. It's easy to reinvent your go-to pencil-skirt ensembles: Swap button-downs and black heels for chunky knits and textured booties, and voilà! Don't be surprised when your coworkers take notice of your effortlessly put-together style.
