While every workplace is different and has its own set of expectations regarding professional attire. The following items are so classic that they fit almost anywhere. It is easy to create a basic workwear wardrobe by using just a few core closet essentials. You can mix and match these essentials in a variety of combinations to create many outfits. How do you do it let’s get started by knowing what to include in the workwear wardrobe?

Black Trousers

Sleek tailored and properly hemmed black pants always look professional and can be worn with almost anything. which makes them one of the biggest bang for your buck. When it comes to purchasing multi-functional pieces these pants help to cover the heel. So even if you’re not comfortable wearing heels or pumps for too long then you can get away wearing wedges underpants.

Dress Shirt

Dress shirts or blouses, basic blouses or crisp button-down shirts make for classic business attire. That can be dressed up or down depending on the clothing and accessories for instance necklaces, soft cardigans, structured Blazers anything. But remember to opt for solid colors and simple prints to make these shirts as functional as possible. Front up a shirt for an instant outfit upgrade. I personally like even the basic chiffon shirt to make a statement with these subtle pastel hems on it. Remember it’s better to get a shirt that is slightly long so it stays where it is supposed to. I always like to do this jumping jack test to see what the shirt will look like with my body movement throughout the day.

Skirt Below Knee

A pencil skirt or a skirt with a little bit of flow anything that hits at or below the knee is an office classic. That can be coupled with the blouse cardigan or blazer depending on the level of formality in the office. You can wear skirts year-round with flats or swap out pumps in warmer weather for tight and boot during colder months essential.

Tailored Dress

The structure of sheath or a-line dresses gives them this business. A­ edge but any sophisticated dress is appropriate for client meetings luncheons day-to-day office. Where they are also a good choice in warm weather look for simple patterns. If you are concerned about blending it with your office workers or choose bolder patterns if you want to make more of a statement. You can style it in so many different ways with a jacket, with a belt, with accessories. Just changing the shoes and accessories can make this dress so versatile.

Polished Jacket

The next essential is a polished jacket with a paired with jeans, a pencil skirt, tailored dress or formal trousers. A well-tailored jacket automatically elevates your look. I’m all about taking simple patterns and giving my own twist to make a statement. For instance, this simple great dress from the Banana Republic can look like this or like this. So I got this dress with a matching suit so I can create multiple different looks with just these basic pieces. Think about it if you buy one statement dress it becomes extremely difficult to repeat it frequently and to style it differently. But if you buy one basic neutral dress there are so many things you can do to make it look different.

Pumps And Matching Flats

Let’s not forget black and nude pumps and flats because these are versatile and classic. A simple black or nude shoe complements virtually all of the items that are outlined above.
