Introducing Your New Office Wardrobe Staple
Australian brand, Scanlan Theodore, was recently introduced to the American market by a trailblazing duo who left their corporate lives behind. They make clothes you wish you always had when you started to build your office wardrobe - clothes designed for the modern working woman who wants to channel both chic and professional.
As we start easing into the Fall (you know it’s Fall once you start seeing pumpkin spice everything!), transition pieces have moved to the forefront of our closet. It's hot and humid outside, but frigid in the office and so layers are essential.
Most women have a go-to blazer. While that surely adds a polished look and gives you that #girlboss feeling, this piece takes that feeling up a notch.
Yes, it's a splurge at $500 but it makes us feel like Olivia Pope + Rachel Zane + Claire Underwood all at once. It’s an investment piece worth every penny.
While it's called a jacket, I would say it's more of a structured knit. The sleeves have a tight fit which is slimming, but makes it harder to layer with a long sleeve blouse or sweater. The Italian crepe fabric doesn't wrinkle or crease which is excellent to travel with. I personally tested this by wearing it at my desk all day and then running out to an event in the evening - wrinkle free! It can be dressed up or down and worn ALL year round!
Best of all, you could throw this in the washing machine (COLD delicate cycle and hang-dry) so you save on that pricey dry cleaning bill!
Here's a picture of the crepe knit on myself and our friends (L to R in black, olive and navy):
Bottom line: Natasha and I both own this piece. Natasha bought a second one in a light gray because she loved it so much. We love the jacket because of how we feel in it and how versatile it is!
