WORKIN' IT WEDNESDAY ... Margarette Derise

by Amanda Bedgood

We love a ladylike look for the workday. Make that in a vivid hue and add some demure lace? A year round timeless look that goes from day to night. Meet Margarette.

This Wednesday we get a glimpse of how to do workwear that can go after hours and year round. Margarette Derise, the Early Head Start exec director at United Way of Acadiana snagged this dress a few years ago, yet it looks fresh as ever thanks to the spot on green color.

"I bought it because of the green/beige color combination, which represents calmness," she says.

Bonus: Green is great for blondes.

Try a dress like this with extras from nude heels and pearls to contrasting colors like a turquoise necklace or coral or a pop of yellow for summer.
