The 1 Piece Every Working Woman Should Own

If you were to open your closet right now, a good chunk of it is probably dedicated to your work clothes. Right? Well, amongst your assortment, do you have the one piece designers swear by? Well, we sat down with Liz Giardina, the VP of design at Derek Lam 10 Crosby, to fill us in on the item every working woman needs in her closet. The result? A great poplin shirt.

"Something they stressed when I worked at Derek Lam was the importance of honest materials. Classic materials like cotton canvas, poplin and Merino wool. Fabrics that are in my wardrobe, my mother’s, and my grandmothers. Fabrics that have been around for generations. I think poplin is this wonderful crisp light poplin. It makes you look beautiful. You can wear it with jeans, a pencil skirt, and even a pair of sweatpants. Everybody should own a lot of them. I think it is exciting to see someone treat it in a different way like playing with the proportions and trims of a traditional poplin shirt," Liz said. So true!
