Work-Wear Essentials: A List of Pieces Every Woman Should Own by the Time She’s 30

Hhere’s my list of work-wear essentials I think one should own.

 

work-wear-essentials-black-blazer
A black blazer:  I absolutely loved.  Vvoilà: the perfect topper for in-office meetings and barside cocktails was finally secured.

 

 

work-wear-essentials-white-button-down
A crisp white shirt: Finding the best button-down for you may be tricky due to your cup size, but once you do, buy multiples! Layer it under dresses, sweaters, and sweatshirts, or wear one on its own with a pencil skirt or trousers.

 

 

work-wear-essentials-dark-jeans
Dark blue or black skinny jeans: Casual Friday is no excuse to come into the office looking extra sloppy, people. A pair of dark blue or black jeans plus the aforementioned blazer create an outfit that reads as relaxed but still put-together.

 

 

work-wear-essentials-v-neck-sweater
A thin V-neck sweater: Pick a cashmere one that will see you from now into early spring. Think gray and navy for neutrals, plus one or two bright shades you can use to create fresh color combinations.

 

 

work-wear-essentials-silk-blouse
A silk blouseOne with a pussy-bow strikes the professional-meets-fashion-forward sweet spot without looking too stuffy. My favorite casual office-appropriate outfit is this type of top with tailored shorts and pumps.

 

 

work-wear-essentials-pencil-skirt
A pencil skirt: Get your sexy secretary (or chic librarian!) on in a sleek pencil skirt. Wool ones work for colder days, while cotton versions are ideal once the temperature starts to rise.
