Candice nails the chic backyard picnic vibe in a pleated Worthington midi skirt in a subtle tie-dye print. Dress it up with heels or down with a white tee and sneakers. We highly recommend taking notes here and accessorizing with a bouquet of colorful flowers.

It’s never the wrong time to buy a well-priced suit, especially in the era of plentiful video meetings and interviews – just ask Scott, the influencer behind @bondonabudget, who provides budget-friendly alternatives to James Bond-inspired looks. We think he looks just like 007 in our light gray JF J. Ferrar slim fit suit and Stafford button-up.

Reina serves up serious cool-girl vibes with the gold a.n.a Button Front Convertible Strap Dress. If yellow tones aren’t your favorite, fear not: the dress comes in three solid colors and three patterned options, including plus sizes. Of course, we recommend getting one of each for a week of delightful dresses.
