As a consultant at Citigroup, Elena Ramos-Velita knew a thing or two about office-appropriate attire: She knew it was impossible to find anything stylish. She hopes her Soho boutique "redefines workwear," by offering feminine, timeless pieces that function seamlessly in and outside of work. Velita describes her Italian-made collection as "discrete luxury," consisting of simple clothes with an edge of elegance: thin lightweight blazers ($335), draped cashmere tops ($195), black skinny pants ($255). Her outfits will leave you feeling equally confident at work, and at an after-work bar.
