I found this great post from Cupcakes and Cashmere, and think wardrobe essentials always make for timely blogs!
I receive a lot of questions about what people should wear in the work place – how to incorporate trends, the key pieces that everyone should own, and those items on which it’s worth spending. I haven’t worked in a typical office for several years, but I’ve put together my list of 15 essential pieces that are a good starting point to building your work wardrobe.
1. Classic bag $168
2. Pencil skirt $98
3. White button-down $72
4. Pumps $120
5. Trench coat $199.99
6. Trousers $240
7. Cardigan $128
8. Dark skinny jeans $176
9. Skinny belt $24.14
10. Ballet flats $135
11. Statement necklace $165
12. Shift dress $295
13. Blazer $99
14. Printed blouse $80
15. Watch $175
Thank you Cupcakes and Cashmere…I love every one of these items! And could take every one of these items on a business trip!
Here are some of my ideas of items on this list
A black cardigan is a wardrobe staple. You can dress it up, or down…or in this case dressed up and down!
Cheetah print flats…a must have for your shoe collection!
I am obsessed with this look. I have a black sequin tank and a gold sequin tank. I’ve had both for several years, and never felt comfortable wearing them. I have now been wearing them with a white blouse underneath, and a blazer…loving this look!
Love this cheetah print blouse, but for work, please button this up further!
And this watch may be a bit much for everyday…but a girl a girl can dream, can’t she? 🙂
