> It’s not surprising to learn Gunn is a filmmaker, as her outfit is decidedly cinematic. This spring-into-summer sleeveless peplum dress (from Banana Republic) creates an hourglass shape.
> “I can wear whatever I want at work, and I love mixing patterns and textures,” says Gunn, who couldn’t resist the bold yellow embroidery and knockout blue color of this cropped sweater (from Anthropologie).
> As a retail advertising specialist, Grogan has a knack for creating arresting visuals, inventively using color and silhouette to flatter her shape. Drawing the eye up is the electric yellow cropped sweater, which hits the fitted polka-dot top (both pieces from Anthropologie) in just the right spot. The bright piping optically narrows the waist.

> Though Cloran likes the way the dress creates curves, she tones down the plunging neck and short hemline with a black camisole and opaque hose (both from Marshalls).
> Another timeless classic is the vintage Coach bag Cloran got as a gift on her 17th birthday.
