Back of On Our Radar: Saks's New Department Is Made For the Working Woman Saks knows wearing the latest five-inch platforms to your job isn't the most work-appropriate. That's why they've come up with a new department, dubbed WEAR, specifically catering to the stylish working woman. It's filled with hip, everyday clothes boasting a load of popular contemporary brands such as Elie Tahari, Tory Burch, M Missoni, and DKNY, to name a few. “There has been an underserved market of style-conscious working women, maturing contemporary customers, and women who pay attention to fashion and want to integrate it into their lives in a sophisticated way,” said Joseph Boitano of Saks. Think of it as runway meets real life. Awesome. Keep your eyes peeled for its Spring debut across the country!

Very '50s, but definitely classic and chic like you said, Tulleandtea. tulleandtea 8 years That featured look as a whole is AMAZING!

Yay for Spring! lovekicks 8 years could def get the same classy workplace appropriate style anywhere else for less DaniDB 8 years During this recession, who has the money for any fashion less substantial than workaday casual? Kudos to Saks and J. Crew for getting hip to retail trends. Dubai is trying to dump off Barneys because it finally realized that few are willing to shell out $300 for some Marc Jacobs t-shirt when they're unemployed and subsisting on ramen and doctors office mints. This article talks about J. Crew's stock bump thanks in part to the trend towards practical fashion: http://is.gd/inRM Jessiebanana 8 years Uhh...someone should call Saks and let them know JCrew has been doing this for years and getting more creative and unique every year while maintaining the same awesome prices.
