What I Wear to Work: WaPo’s Fashion Scout Loves a Good Blazer
Her fresh styling tricks are great for freshly graduated first-time professionals.
Who: Dominique Vu, 23
Editor/producer of the Washington Post’s DC Scout
What she does: DC Scout is the Washington Post’s twice-weekly newsletter focused on shopping, deals, events, and beauty and style tips. I handle everything from writing and managing social media to producing content and designing creative for the newsletter. I also seek out and coordinate sponsorships and partnerships for DC Scout with fashion events and stores around town.
Describe your work style: Sophisticated and trendy. I like to mix business-casual looks with more of-the-moment pieces. I consider myself quite short, so fun high heels are my go-to for adding a bit of pizzazz to any and all office outfits. Statement necklaces and fun bracelets can also turn a basic outfit from drab to fab.
