It’s easy to get into a rut when dressing for work. After all, there are only so many different ways you can wear a white button-down or a wrap dress. Designer Rebeca Minkoff, thankfully, has just the solution to do away with the work wardrobe blues and it will definitely leave you feeling cool and confident for your 9-to-5.
We chatted with the 38-year-old apparel and accessories designer backstage at her fall/winter 2019 show at Pier59 Studios during New York Fashion Week and learned that when it comes to selecting a work wardrobe, Minkoff employs one simple rule.
“I always say put on something that makes you feel a little uncomfortable. Not physically uncomfortable, but more of a feeling within,” she explained.
Minkoff pointed to her jeans as an example. Cool-girl-esque gray faded denim with studs all over are hardly the norm, but they’re versatile and interesting in a way that made them both work-appropriate (at least for more casual office settings) and a conversation starter.
