What I Wear to Work: The Lovely Ladies of Vocus
4 casual-cool looks from the Beltsville tech company. By Sarah Zlotnick
Comments () | Published November 7, 2012

In case you missed our massive retrospective of LivingSocial style, tech startups in this area don’t exactly adhere to the traditional business dress code. As long as employees look presentable, they’re free to do away with pencil skirts and boring black heels. At the almost Disney-ish work space of online marketing company Vocus (see pictures of the tricked-out workspace over on Capital Comment), the same holds true. We were lucky enough to visit a few weeks back, and snapped photos of some stylish employees in the process. Nothing too fancy or over-the-top here—just real office style from a real office of young people.

Stacey Acevero, social media manager
Slick booties and—most important—impeccable posture make Stacey’s more casual combo work for an internal meeting.

Kai Yuen, executive assistant
Ah, the leather-sleeve jacket. That and a red lip are really all you need.

Chrisy Shim, graphic designer
The jeweled flats and necklace add subtle sparkle to an otherwise spare silhouette.

Laura Spaventa, social media manager
The takeaway here: Blazers, belts, and opaque tights make almost any dress work-appropriate.
