Four workwear staple pieces you NEED in your closet

Let’s be real- I love new, stylish clothes just as much as the next girl. However, like most other gals, I don’t have an unlimited budget to spend on clothing every month. I also find that I tend to prefer to spend the bulk of my clothing budget on things that aren’t work clothes.

As I’ve pieced together a business casual/professional wardrobe, I’ve noticed that I tend to repeat certain pieces in my closet regularly. If you happen to travel a lot for work, are building your first work wardrobe, or are just on a tight budget, I recommend purchasing some staple pieces that can easily be combined with other items to piece together tons of different outfits.

Here are the four pieces I HIGHLY recommend for your work wardrobe:

  1. Tailored Ankle Pants (Navy)
  2. Cream/Taupe Cardigan
  3. Nude Heels
  4. Black Pencil Skirt

Just look at how easily you can combine the Navy pants, Neutral Cardigan and Nude Heels:


Cardigan | Blouse (similar sleeveless) | Blouse (similar with sleeves) | Pants |Heels | Handbag | Necklace


Cardigan | Blouse | Pants |Heels | Handbag

You could also easily wear these pants with pretty much any top, without the cardigan.

The Black Pencil Skirt also pairs perfectly well with nearly any top and Nude Heels. You could even add the Neutral Cardigan over this blouse for more layers:


Blouse | Skirt |Heels | Handbag 

As you can see, there are SO MANY easy ways to mix these four pieces. Honestly, even if you decided to get the skirt in navy, and the pants in black, you could still create a lot of these same outfits.

I’d say as a general rule of thumb, a black bottom, navy bottom, nude heels and neutral cardigan are easily the most versatile workwear pieces you could own.


Until next time,
