Whether your name is on the door or you are climbing the proverbial ladder, dressing for the office is no simple job. Plus, who has time for wardrobe changes with today’s hectic schedules? The perfect career garb has a professional edge, but incorporates enough personal style for your evening program.
Monochromatic separates provide a sleek, modern silhouette. A simple shift dress is your most valuable wardrobe essential. A tailored blazer lends a powerful yet polished sophistication. Or try a season-less sweater for comfort that is easy to remove once you’re off the clock.
Wide-legged pants are on the rise. Pair them with a ruffled blouse for instant feminine flair. Add simple yet bold black accessories for texture. Patent shoes and a croc bag are your ideal desk-to-dinner companions. Top off the look with a playful pearl necklace with timeless appeal.
You invest in your closet; make sure it is working for you.
