It’s tough not to look like a tool in business casual. Getups are too boring, boxy, or unintentionally sloozy.
Stop getting screwed in the SFW clothing department with NYC-based Quincy Apparel.
Founded by Harvard business school alums (and tall, curvy girls) Alex Nelson and Christina Wallace, the collection is sized according to bra size and height rather than standard numbers. Their expertly tailored pieces apply the age-old concept of affordable, custom men’s suiting to women’s wear and look smart (like ask-out-for-drinks-after-you-restructure-an-IPO smart).
Start with one of five blazers (we like the cobalt number with grosgrain lapel trim fit for a cameo in “Gangnam Style”) to layer over a sleek sheath dress or polka-dot bow-neck silk blouse. Ankle-grazing cigarette pants and curve-hugging slit pencil skirts are designed to flatter and keep it classy (they stretch). Pair both with short-sleeve peplum tops and crisp white oxfords.
Talk about nailing it.
Available at quincyapparel.com, $78-$258.
