for the fifth straight year, Talbots and O, The Oprah Magazine have partnered together for Talbots: Dress for Success. the idea is simple: let’s support the economic empowerment and independence of women the world over. to do this, Talbots will collect clothing donations of new (or nearly new) work ready clothing between February 20th-24th. they will also accept donations in-store or online. to date, Dress for Success has raised more than $6 million and collected over 18,000 boxes of donated business attire benefiting over 125,000 women across America.
as many of my followers know, i’m an advocate for strong, independent working women. it’s important that we’re all trailblazers in our own right—big or small–in our daily lives. and a key component of being an independent women is economic independence. maybe you’re currently in the workforce or maybe you previously were.
whatever the case, you know that to to achieve any form of independence not only takes hard work and diligence from our school days and beyond, but also the support from friends, family, and our communities around us. let me know someone who helped you on your journey in the comments below.
one of the ways you can support Dress for Success, but more importantly woman looking to succeed in the workforce, is to shop the O, The Oprah Magazine cardigan collection. 30 percent of the proceeds directly benefits Dress for Success. the collection features five comfy cardigans. i’ve chosen to style the chevron cardigan today, but i’ve put together a slider of all the cardigans below.
to me, nothing says “strong” and “independent” more than black and white. in a lot of ways, i’ve put together a simple but classic outfit. i’ve paired my centerpiece cardigan with a crisp white poplin popover and streamlined black ankle pants. it’s the perfect outfit for most vocations, really. and anyone can pull it off. how are you thinking of wearing your cardigan? what color combinations spell s-u-c-c-e-s-s for you?
there are a lot of ways in which you can make Dress for Success successful.
