Who: Alexandra Kogan, 24
Communications Specialist, Asian American Justice Center (AAJC)
What she does: The AAJC is a nonprofit that advances the human and civil rights of the Asian-American community. I manage social media and produce traditional communications pieces such as op-eds and press releases. The best perk of my job is definitely the feeling you get at the end of the day knowing that you’re working for the greater good.
Describe your work style: Classic with an unexpected edge. I love conservative cuts with stylish details like bright pops of color or a well-crafted clutch. Communications as an industry allows for creativity, so I try to reflect that in my wardrobe. My go-to pieces would have to be the reliable black pencil skirt, a mixture of colorful tops, and statement necklaces.
Outfit One: Going to a Symposium
H&M skirt and top, Aldo necklace and bag, and Nine West shoes.
Outfit Two: Digital Strategy Sessions
Ann Taylor blouse and shoes, Zara skirt, and Yunjung Kathy Lee of Inchoate clutch.
Outfit Three: Casual Fridays
Ann Taylor jacket and tank, Tasha scarf, Bar III jeans, and Wanted flats.
