As a recent MBA graduate, I can tell you that the outlook on business wear is dismal. I struggled for about a year until I found a suit that didn’t suck all the life out of me and hide every inch of my body– thank you BCBG! In a category that is hard to get excited about, I am excited to say that I found a new line full of work-appropriate looks that you will want to spend your money on. Based and produced in NYC, Of Mercer focuses on stylish high quality work appropriate looks in a reasonable price range (dresses begin at $165, tops under $100). With varying ranges of styles and cuts sure to flatter different body types, the company has also thrown in a few surprises worth disclosing like reversible dresses. Can’t decide which color dress to get? The Lincoln and the Dover dresses go from subdued black to brightly patterned memorable looks on the reverse. Why is this great? Well…
Two dresses for the price of one
Helps narrow down packing for trips without decreasing options
You can buy both colors AND keep your closet space
I know, I’m pretty good at rationalizing– especially when it comes to shopping.
The Dover, $195
The Lincoln, $215
The Crosby Blazer, $245
