3. Stick to the staples.
Unsure where to begin when it comes to shopping for your work wardrobe? Start with the basics and you shouldn’t need too much else. This is what’s known as building a capsule wardrobe. In short, these are pieces that are intended to be investments, that you will wear for years and perhaps even pass down to the next generation.
In short, they are classics that will stand the test of time. Think the little black dress, a black suit that looks great as a pair or divided into separates, a patterned blouse that will pop beneath a magnetic name tag
or lanyard, a pair of sensible black or neutral-toned pumps and a functional handbag that is structured, not slouchy.
These pieces might cost you a little more up-front. After all, this isn’t the time to scrimp and cut corners on a bargain alternative.
Rather, go ahead and get the highest-quality version you can realistically afford. Then, determine not to spend any more until absolutely necessary. You’ll be surprised at how these few pieces anchor your entire wardrobe and allow for infinite pairing possibilities.
