Alison Brie Shows Us How to Dress for Work in the Summer

Alison Brie from Mad Men looks chic for summer in a black and white print pencil skirt.
Alison Brie showed off her summer style in NYC as she was seen leaving an apartment building in a black sleeveless top, black and white patterned skirt, and purple suede pumps.

When temperatures soar, I think this is the perfect outfit formula for the office.

Also, I just realized that every celebrity look this week has featured a black and white color palette! First, we had Sarah Hyland in a gingham dress and moto jacket, then Kylie Jenner in striped pants and white sneakers, and now 'Mad Men' star Alison Brie in a print pencil skirt and sleeveless black top.

Black and white is always a good choice, and while I usually associate it with the fall and winter seasons, it's just as easy to wear in the summer. You can always add a pop of color like Alison has done here with her shoes, or mix things up with a colorful top or bag.

To get this look for less, I recommend spending a bit more than usual for some pieces I found at Ann Taylor - they're all on sale, making these worthwhile purchases you'll wear next season, too!

Hey Dianna! ModCLoth is now selling clothes on Walmart webpage. I took a sneak peek, quirky, unusual, wide range of sizes, however, prices are way beyond those of Walmart. Though can get 20% off on first order. Will order when I receive my clothes from SheIn...FYI, thanks!

What I would do is go to, click on clothing, type in ModCloth....I don't have a link, sorry. I get Walmart in my e-mail every day, that was the latest notice which was ModCloth....
