I used to think “elegant wedding gowns” when I heard the name of designer Vera Wang. And with good reason, because that’s what her design group is known for.
But after seeing the designer and her staff featured in the Wall Street Journal’s weekly “Work Wear” column, I now think “great professional clothing.” They don’t just design it; they wear it.
The photos accompanying the article show Wang and her staff in beautiful tones of olive and beige worn with black basics — many of the fabrics interestingly textured knits, wools, heavy cottons, and mesh. In short, they were wearing classic mix-and-match elements that would make a great wardrobe for urban professionals of all ages.
