Julie Chaiken launched her SF-based brand Chaiken to address the lack of chic, office-appropriate clothing options. "My passion for dressing the professional woman stems from my time right after business school when I looked around and realized how few options there were to look and feel fashion forward as well as polished," Chaiken tells Forbes. "It's still a problem which is why we've come up with this collection."
It's all about easy, on-the-go dressing for the woman who wears Chaiken. The looks from the new collection are primarily three pieces (pants, shirt, and jacket) with a few dresses and a skirt option in the mix—with all styles easily mixing and matching with each other. To recreate the outfit above, you'll need the Anna T-shirt ($68), the Kira Pant ($198), and the Hunter Jacket ($288). Use the code NEWFRIEND2014 to stock up on separates (in all the pretty colors) and receive 25% off your total order.
