Team Zoe Office Styling Challenge


It’s a tale as old as time: Fall is well on its way but you’re just not ready to kiss breezy summer separates goodbye. Needless to say, the weeks between seasonal changeover can cause some work wear wardrobe confusion.

We tasked 5 Team Zoe staffers with styling a single transitional piece – an endlessly versatile Rachel Zoe Collection houndstooth boyfriend blazer – for the office. The result: an entire week’s worth of totally unique looks you can wear to work right now and post Labor Day, too!

Nicky Deam, Editorial Manager

Add a dose of femininity to an otherwise masculine silhouette by carving out the waist with the help of a skinny belt. A pair of classic black heels and a swipe of crimson lipstick elevate denim to office-appropriate status.

Jaclyn Decell, Community Manager

Jaclyn’s minimalistic take on work wear separates is proof positive that a black-and-white palette is virtually season-less. Feel free to experiment by subbing in a sleek pencil skirt or classic lady pumps.

Kendall Cohan, Product Development Associate

Undoubtedly the edgiest look of the bunch, Kendall matched the jacket’s leather details with a pair of too-cool skinnies. For a more conservative take on this combo, try swapping the leather pants for a pair of tailored trousers. Pro tip: A popped collar is always a good idea.

Stephanie Montes, Beauty Editor

A chambray shirt is quite possibly the hardest working staple in your closet: lend it some professional prowess by pairing with trousers in an eye-catching hue and draping a dapper blazer over the shoulders.
