When fashion designer Julie Chaiken launched her clothing label Chaiken & Capone in 1994, style insiders everywhere took notice. The brand’s perfectly tailored boot-cut pants offered a refreshingly flattering alternative to the baggy styles popular at the time. Since then Chaiken has expanded her line into a full ready-to-wear collection featuring women’s sportswear, outerwear, maternity clothing, swimwear, and workday essentials like silk blouses and cashmere sweaters. In 2010, she relaunched her San Francisco-based company — staying true to her origins with “rocker skinny” pants and shorts as well as leather skirts, T-shirts and trench coats done up in rich, vibrant hues. Famous devotees of Chaiken’s luxe offerings include Angelina Jolie, Reese Witherspoon, Brooke Shields, and Oprah Winfrey.

There's a time for black on black (. . . on black), but springtime is not that time! Inject some sunshine into your work wardrobe this season instead. Think citrus yellows, energetic pinks, of-the-moment corals, and other vibrant hues splashed onto cardigans, silk blouses, elegant dresses, and more. What's that saying about dressing for the job you want?
Every woman’s wardrobe needs color — now more than ever, if you're keeping up with fall trends — but there's nothing quite as timeless as basic black and white. Dresses, sweaters, jackets, and skirts look impossibly chic, while more casual pieces (think cotton shirts and jeans) will make mixing and matching a breeze.
