So eager, in fact, we enlisted the help of Rachel Zoe Studio to cull the best of the upcoming season’s office-appropriate styles and show us how to wear them to work. After all, you spend the majority of your waking life at your 9 to 5, so you might as well look damn good while you’re there. Here, 7 looks we can’t wait to try.
