Wearing a lady suit is risky business: Too manly and you look like Madam Secretary. Too revealing and you look like your boss is a madam.
Master office-appropriate attire with sleek suit separates from new L.A. label Georgie.
The desk-to-drinks workwear includes fine wool gabardine jackets paired with trousers like the slim cropped Martini (put them with pumps for svelte style; with flats they’re gamine sweet). Slouchy boyfriend slacks in a festive sheen balance foppishness with feminine tucks to be flirty (we like them styled with sneakers). And the crisp but casually cool Sofi menswear jacket gives a white blouse instant street cred.
Each piece is conservative enough to be professional but adds a liberal dose of modern tailoring.
Which is always a good policy.
