Work Ready

Just entering the workforce or want to pull your look together for the office? Here are some basics that will have you looking ready for the workplace.

Invest in a pair of black slacks, a white button down shirt, a dress (hint: wrap dresses flatter most figures), black heeled shoes, and an everyday bag

Tracy Reese Eva satchel $645; Igigi wrap dress $96

Medium price: colorful shoes (that are work appropriate), silver and gold hoop earrings, jeans

Windsor diamond print trench $42.75;Gap stretch fitted shirt $39.50

Skimp: accessories (colorful necklaces and earrings), trendy tops

Alloy cuffed three button pants $29.50 (Available up to a 37" inseam) The Bead Lady Designs earrings $28

If you are lucky enough to have casual Fridays, make sure that you look as though you are going to WORK, no flip flops, and please no sweatsuits. (I've seen it, it happens.)

Carlos Santana Exude pump $99; Banana Republic hoops (available in sterling silver and 14k gold) $18

My office is not as conservative as most corporate environments so we can stray away from the basics a bit and show a little more creativity. These are just an outline of basic items that you can find in many different price points. I say be bold, don't be afraid to mix textures or pair a trendy item with a classic for a twist.

I agree...especially the trench and the shoe! I love the color of that wrap dress, and the black bag is nice as well.
