The Writer is a stylish multitasker whose look needs to be ready to go at a moment’s notice. From covering local news to writing sessions in her favorite coffee shop, her style calls for bright and modern pieces that are effortlessly polished but completely comfortable.

THE MONDAY INTERVIEW

The writer starts her week in and out of interviews in a bold red corduroy blazer thrown over a classic white tee and straight-leg jeans. The look is professional but low-key — a go-to ensemble for everything from coffee meet-ups with colleagues to dinner with the family.

THE TUESDAY COFFEE SHOP CATCH-UP

Tuesday finds our writer getting ahead of deadlines at her local neighborhood hangout. Wide-leg chinos in a fall-feeling hue tie easily at the waist, while a multicolored boatneck tee gives the look a bright and nautical-inspired finish.

THE WEDNESDAY LOCAL EVENT

When reporting from a local event, our writer reaches for straight-leg jeans in a festive merlot shade, topped with a bright yellow belted blouse. The colorblock formula works well for statement-making looks that are relatively low-lift — ideal for getting ready in a hurry.

THE THURSDAY PITCH MEETING

For running point on a pitch meeting, the writer’s look is chic but casual. A smock neck top empowers our writer to command the brainstorming room, coupled with high-waisted button fly jeggings and a shimmery earring for a little extra sparkle.

THE FRIDAY POST-DEADLINE CELEBRATION

For end-of-week celebrations (no more deadlines!), a double denim look is bold but completely classic. A mid-rise denim skirt combines the on-trend midi length with the timelessness of denim for a fall staple that belongs in everyone’s closet — and on the dance floor.
