Whether you are starting off in your career, looking to advance positions, a stay at home mom heading back to work, or heck you just don’t know what to wear to work passed Wednesday! The common denominator is all working women have to get dressed to impress. In order to create successful, confidence boosting outfits, you need a wardrobe plan.
Having a wardrobe plan will ensure that every outfit you wear will make positive impressions. You will stand out. You will be remembered. If you are starting out in your career or wanting to advance up the corporate ladder, than this is KEY.
We don’t have the luxury of buying a new outfit for every day of the week. Making sure you have the key items in your wardrobe is essential, because they will create outfit options which will make getting dressed in the morning seem effortless. OK, I know some of you may be thinking “at my work everyone dresses casually”…well my response is don’t fall into that comfort zone. My philosophy when getting dressed for work, is to always step it up.
So you’re probably wondering what exactly are the work wardrobe essentials? To start make sure you have a tailored blazer in your closet and as well a classic white blouse. If you own a suit, you are one step ahead! Look for a neutral color that suits you best. Black is definitely a classic, safe choice but so is navy, grey, and camel. Stay tuned more essentials to come!
When getting dressed every day the wardrobe essentials will create a strong foundation, but it’s your accessories and how you wear them that will let your personal style shine.
In order to create a solid wardrobe, you must start with the essentials.
Easy dressing is about having the key go-to items in your closet, that you can dress up or wear casually. I love how Barbara Martelo wears her black leather pants like she would wear jeans. She makes them look sexy and sophisticated with a black stiletto, black t-shirt, and a long coat but can wear them casually with a plaid shirt and ankle boots. Leather pants can also work for the office when paired with a blouse, and a blazer.
7 Days of Style Tip: Whatever you purchase, always make sure you give yourself wardrobe options. Try to get as much mileage out of your clothing as possible. Aim for three different ways you can make that item work.
