The Looks

“I have a power suit for the office and I have a power outfit for the summer, fall, and spring. Sometimes being my nerdy dorky self while being smart casual is my superpower. Oh, and high-waisted tapered pants and blouse at my natural waist are my staples.”

Jennifer S., Dia Community

“If I ever want to feel super confident and bold with my look, I always throw on my East Adeline black moto jacket. It’s a simple piece, but I’ve always felt connected to myself and my style with a moto jacket on as if it’s my own piece of armor.”

Nikki B., Dia&Co Visual Designer

“Whenever I’m feeling insecure or having a rough day, I know that I can rely on my Molly&Isadora jeans to not only give me a boost in self-love but also make me look super cute with minimal effort. I have never had a pair of jeans that fits me this perfectly.”

“No matter what kind of day or night I’m having, I feel pulled together and completely unflappable when I wear my black moto jacket. It instantly polishes up plain jeans and a tee or adds edge to a dress.”

“Me in my two-piece may not be commanding the room, but I am demanding my respect at the beach! I feel like can’t nobody tell me nothing—I’m looking fabulous and I’m wearing what I want.”

Danielle O., Dia Community

“This dress is a go-to piece for me when I want to feel pretty and powerful. I can get super glam with heels and sparkly accessories or keep it simple with ankle boots and a clutch. When I wear this dress, I feel beautiful and ready to take on the day or night!”
