Getting a new job or promotion is extremely exciting; however, when that is met with the added cost of needing to invest in a new workwear wardrobe, it can feel emotionally and financially daunting. We are here to help with just 9 pieces that you can turn into 24 different outfits so that you can have a complete work wardrobe. The trick? Investing in clothes that have coordinated color schemes, are made from similar materials, and have simple silhouettes that can be mixed and matched over and over again. Keep reading for our selection of 9 wardrobe essentials that will build your entire wardrobe so that you can spend your money on more important things.
2 dresses - both business appropriate but one more formal for big presentations and interviews and one more casual for days when you want a more relaxed look.
1 knit - for easy layering on chillier days when you don't want to be in a formal blazer.
1 Blazer - choose one that goes with all of your suiting so you can dress up any office look.
2 Tops – we recommend versatile shells in one light color and one dark color to complement any outfit
2 Pants - choose ones in different silhouettes
We chose pieces that were made in our Italian Stretch suiting, so that all of the suiting pieces can be mixed and matched. Additionally, we chose a color scheme of black and white with a pop of green for when we want some color!
The Pollock Dress
The Juniper Dress
Tip: We chose dresses with completely different vibes, one sleek, more form-fitting silhouette, and one more feminine, A-line silhouette so that you have a dress option for any mood or setting.
The Amsterdam Cardigan
Tip: We chose a color that coordinates with this collection (but isn't another black piece), so you can add some more versatility to your outfits!
The Prince Blazer V2
Tip: This simple blazer is a closet staple and is the perfect building block to any suiting collection. Dress up any work outfit with this blazer or pair it with jeans and a t-shirt on weekends for a timeless off-duty outfit.
The Morris Top
The Harrison Top
Tip: We chose tops with relaxed fits that can be worn tucked and untucked so you can have even more styling versatility. We recommend choosing one in a lighter shade and one in a darker shade to mix your wardrobe up even more!
The Lexington Pants V2
These wide leg pants made from our Italian Stretch Suiting pair perfectly with the rest of this wardrobe in Black.
The Hanover Pants
Tip: If you are opting for two pairs of pants in your wardrobe, we recommend choosing two completely different fits so that you have a wider range of silhouettes. Additionally, if you like a pop of color, we personally love the Army Green Hanover pants that will still blend seamlessly with the rest of this wardrobe.
The Franklin Skirt
Tip: We chose this classically tailored, simple pencil skirt because it goes with absolutely everything. You can look totally professional in any work setting and can be styled with a crop top and jacket for late night drinks.
