This post brought to you by ANN INC. CAREERS. All opinions are 100% mine.
I have been a longtime shopper of ANN INC. – Ann Taylor and Loft. The two popular brands have become my staple go-to shops for WorkChic as they offer stylish work apparel and accessories at competitive prices. Today I want to share their latest app called BFF. As fun as the name suggests, the app is your 24/7 fashion friend to help you put your best foot forward in your career!
The BFF app is more than just a style app. It encompasses both the visual as well as informational and productive content. I just downloaded the app today for free. It's available to download on iTunes and the Google Play Store. At least one or more of these features you will find beneficial and helpful.

The look from Stylebop on the left makes for chic casual office attire yet the whole outfit costs over $4000. I’ve put together a similar style for much less. The cotton-jersey blazer is both comfortable and cozy. Instead of a tiny clutch, grab a practical messenger bag to haul all your essentials.
Blazer | Top | Pants | Bag | Boots
I love the styling of this editorial below in neutral cream apparel accented with black and gold accessories. You know, no good outfit is complete – including workwear - without carefully matched accessories. And what I’m really eying are the vintage glasses. They are the perfect combination of sophistication and sass.
A pair of chic black cat eye glasses are appropriate for all ages and genders. Unlike some other accessories, these black-framed glasses are highly versatile whether with a semi-casual or refined wardrobe. All you need is a tailored coat for a chic business casual ensemble.
Sweater | Glasses | Pumps | Skirt
Wouldn’t it be even better to have perfect vision (well, close to such) and forgo the hassle of getting prescription lenses for good? So that in a perfect world, you have options to choose any style eyeglasses regardless of eye sight. With continuously improving laser eye surgery - Optical Express – it’s no longer just one’s wish to have 20/20 vision but something that has become very common and attainable!
