Back for round 2 with Dana Rajotte, the owner and founder of Tru Ride Cycle Studio! Last week, 'True Beauty' was all about polished weekend looks with leather and denim. So this week we are focusing on our modern classics and building outfits that are great for the office or an evening out! Outfit # 1 | Essentials
This outfit is made up of essential basics that you will wear again and again. When building a wardrobe, we believe that every woman should own a great pair of jeans that they feel fabulous in, a versatile top that can be dressed up or down and a classic trench coat! The possibilities of outfits you can built from these essential basics are endless. So this spring, invest in a great jacket you can wear season after like a timeless trench coat. We love this classic double breasted trench by Bailey 44, because it can accompany you on a long flight, office lunch or date night and always look sharp and sophisticated. And because it is made from a softer fabric, it doesn't look to stiff or starchy - giving it an unpretentious vibe that goes perfectly with denim. The heels are a classic pointed toe, with snakeskin detail on the strap and around the heel.

Outfit # 2 | Champagne Taste
This delicate crepe top packs a flirty punch because it is elegantly framed in lace. The fit is slim, yet loose with a cut out at back and vented hem on the sides so it looks great with a tailored pant and heels. We've kept the jeans the same because Dana loved the fit, but changed the heels so a more intricate peep toe to play up the detailing in the blouse and added a simple black clutch and silver watch to finish the look!
Jeans: Nico midrise skinny by Hudson $235
Heels: Camya peep toe heel by Nine West on sale for $80!
