Perfect Your Beverly Hills Power-Lunch Style

We may have oversized sweaters and boyfriend jeans on regular rotation, but that doesn't mean we're wearing them on every occasion. Especially when the day calls for something a little more elevated than our daily uniform, but not quite fancy enough to bust out the ironing board, like lunch at Joan's on Third. No, it's not just a midday meal at another restaurant — it's a feast at a happenin' locale with the BEST mac and cheese. We're getting hungry just thinking about it...
Anyway, as we were saying, fancy restaurants don't always require stuffy attire. Trade that crisp button-down and trousers for a more relaxed outfit that evokes the same pulled-together vibe. Case in point: this head-turning Juicy Couture topper with basic skinnies and a statement necklace. Add the white tee and espadrilles that are already in your closet, and the outfit is totally fresh and unexpected for the modern lady who lunches. It makes a sartorial statement without being fussy — perfect for a lunch date. Now, where's our mac and cheese?
