Welcome to the inaugural Working It column where Racked takes street style to the next level—the office. The litmus test of a true fashionista is how she (or he) rocks her style on any old day to work. Forget the pedestrian khakis and a button downs—these fashionable professionals take the office dress code to a whole other dimension. Quick, somebody call HR! First stop, the Bleecker Street outpost of British retail chain, Reiss.

“Out of my whole outfit, my favorite piece is the Duke bag. I love it because it matches everything. It’s great to have. The chain detail is amazing.”
Laurie Marco, President for Reiss USA
“My style is very get up and go. I’m on a plane every other week. I have to have accessible clothes that are easy to travel, easy to take care of, that are transitional. I want clothes for a normal person.”
Laurie is wearing a "Bailey" coat, a "Liv" top, $185, "Travis" biker pants, $185, and "Meghan" booties. The outfit is accessorized with a "Safia" pony skin bag, $325, and a "Harriman" Trilby, $95. All from Reiss.

“I always find easy pieces: jeans, a blazer, nice earrings, you know, dress them up. It’s just easy pieces.”
