Office Apropos: Winter 2015

Four girls, five days, 20 outfits


The striped shirts and sheer cropped socks of fall have become the misleadingly 70s-representative puffer coats and double ply-soled creepers of winter. This, of course, indicates nothing more, nothing less than the introduction of a new installment of Office Apropos wherein we, the writers — Esther included! — document five days of work outfits and live to tell about it. Click through the slideshow for captions and credits then shimmy over to the comments section and answer us this: what would you do-o-o for a Klondike bar?

      hahahahahahha i love you whoever you are

  • Leandra: You are the Rosetta Stone of Fashuuunnn.

    Amelia: You are the human embodiment of all the days I used to spend at the St. Francis Yacht Club. This is a good thing, as I have a soft spot for Bass loafers, bar snacks, and the San Francisco Bay.

    Esther: You’re too cool for school. Simple clothes, maximum #sleek.

    Charlotte: Pretty sure my vintage closet is comprised of like 85% iterations of your vintage stuff, however you wear it all in far groovier formation.

    Love all of you.

    You all are such beautiful humans. Also, the Cha Cha DiGregorio reference from Grease was SO GOOD.

  • andrea raymer

    Leandra, you went an entire week without exposing your neck, do you have a phobia of vampires?

    I am also appreciating everyone’s eagerness to wear things that could also be slept in because I have a real problem waking up in the morning.

  • Kelsey Moody

    The range of jacket style is impressive, and its like, why wear one when you can wear two?! ammiright Esther? Also– I SEE THOSE Ace & Everett socks, Amelia!

    I love your Valentino heels, Leandra! Do you know if there is an alternative to the Valentino ones which is a little cheaper?

  • Aydan

    brogues are total monday staple. Looking complete without really trying! Welcome to my Monday outfit!

  • Chaaarlotte I die for your sweater outfits. My mission for 2015 is to wear as much heather grey in as many different textures as humanly possible and you and Esther have opened many, many doors for me. All of you ladies look lovely, as always 🙂

  • I’m just so distracted thinking about how cold you all must be.

  • So glad that Esther gets to play this time around! I’ve been trying to find a belt like the one Leandra’s wearing in outfit #2, any rec’s would be appreciated. And Amelia, your backwards v-neck sweater trick is fricken brilliant!

    • Leandra Medine

      Ooooh there’s a brand called b-low the belt..or something and they have good ones. also, though, vintagio and finally, i recommend googling “black belt with small silver buckle” to see what comes up

  • Olivia McCarthy-Stevens

    I would very much like be Charlotte’s best friend, possibly just to be privy to her clothes.

    office apropos needs to happen more regularly! inspired by this post i went to a job interview dressed like a secretary from the 70s!

  • Seriously… did you guys just float together due to a sheer force causing a collective of incredibly dressed individuals to come into contact with each other or did MR seek everyone out on these terms? How can ONE office be so COOOL

  • su
