    While we are by no means surprised at the level of chic emanating from Theory's fall '12 lookbook, we have to say that we're impressed with the way the always office-appropriate brand continues to prove you can look professional and put together without losing your edge.

    In its latest collection, Theory arms you with the pieces to battle autumn chill while looking intelligently sexy, through their use of sleek fabrics and sharp shapes. Plus, we think you'll agree every look could transition flawlessly to happy hour after work, or take you to that dinner you've been trying to schedule with Brad from marketing.

(or ex-S.O.). But, in there read
