4 Essential Items to Dress Like a Boss Lady
Fashion is always in a state of flux and what’s “in” one day is “out” the next. The traditional office attire, however, is an entirely different subject matter. Despite the latest trends in fashion, certain business wardrobe essentials – a suit, pencil, and heels or casual loafers – will always keep you looking fresh no matter the time of year. Here are 4 key essential items that will keep your wardrobe sharp and give you a career confidence boost.
There are two ways of wearing a suit. The traditional suit entails pants and a jack while the other option is a skirt suit. Which one you opt for depends entirely on your mood or climate – or both. Pants will be better suited for colder months, but if you’re going for an interview, a skirt suit will make more of an impact (but don’t quote us on that!). Some women feel more comfortable in skirts than pants, so that’s another reason why they prefer it. But this is one piece you should consider investing in.
This blazer by J Crew hits the nail on the head and captures the versatility of a suit. It will keep you looking classy and complement your style year round.
Comfort Heels for work
Since you’ll be wearing these heels to work for at least 8 hours a day, we recommend finding something that is known for offering more comfort. These Lucie suede pumps by J. Crew will burn a hole in your pocket but are worth every penny. If you’re too keen on wearing heels all day, you could wear a pair of black loafers with a black or brown sole. Avoid white soles because they’ll get dirty quickly!
A pencil skirt is the bonafide wardrobe essential for the working woman. They hug the lower body to show off your gorgeous silhouette. It looks attractive and incredibly powerful. Tuck in the heels and a blouse and you’ll complete that professional look. Another entry by J. Crew, this time their sleek pencil skirt makes tops our list.
A work tote is absolutely essential for work, especially when you’re interviewing. You need something that can hold your documents together, and light enough that you wouldn’t mind lugging around. It should be durable enough to withstand the outside elements. This North-South Tote by Baggallini perfectly fits the bill and is also light on the wallet.
