"What Are You Wearing? Office Edition" is Alive's online and office-based version of the popular Style section feature.
Alive editor Kristen Schmidt has a classic style. I love this color-blocked blouse she purchased at Ann Taylor (which, by the way, has some great wide-leg slacks on sale). Clean lines and well-tailored touches -- see that pair of buttons -- are essential in professional women's work wear. They exude organization and put-togetherness. Below are some other well-structured work staples that don't dtich style.
