To be fully prepared to dress for the working world, there are a few basics that all career ladies should have in their closets. They are your foundation. From this base you can mix and match and add the fantastic accessories that make the outfit.
It’s important to have a strong foundation, so in this post we show you our five office wardrobe essentials: the pencil skirt, the solid button-up shirt, the suit (pant suit or skirt suit are both fantastic options) and the dress (both sheath dresses and wrap dresses meet the criteria). To see how each of us jazzes up our looks, check back tomorrow for a surprise!
