A Touch of Tux
"I'm a style chameleon," admits Umindi Francis, who, as PR director of Karla Otto, a public relations firm, makes a career of promoting high-end fashion. "The fun thing about working in this business is that there are no limits on how I dress." This sometimes means wearing a tank with red lips on it (Moschino Lingerie, $555) and a swirly-print miniskirt (Thakoon, $675). What balances the bareness is a cool take on the tux jacket (Notify, $773) that "makes whatever I'm wearing look more sophisticated and confident." Layering with a blazer also enables her to take summer pieces into fall: "It's like having your wardrobe work double time," she says.
