I believe that when it comes wardrobe essentials the classic white button-down shirt automatically earns a spot at the top of the list. It’s the real deal: the true wear anywhere staple. Tuck it in or let it loose; tie it in knots or fashion an expert cuff – you can’t go wrong with this year-round essential. Trends come and go but the versatility of the white button-down is perpetual.
It’s Friday night so I will keep it short and sweet!
The classic office look is probably the most common and easiest way to dress for the office regardless of your job but also the most likely to get you not only feeling bored but looking the part as well. Adding that dose of style can be a little challenging especially if you work at a place where casual smart is not an option!
There are trends and then there are timeless styles and I believe that pencil skirts and blazer coats fall in the category of timeless classics. My work wear wardrobe wouldn’t be complete without including this two because I know my office go to look would be something pretty close to this.
This is my third look of the work wear series and in case you missed the first and second posts read them here and here.I kept this look simple in an all navy blue ensemble featuring a bit of pin stripes and peter pan collars.

In preparation of the next chapter in my life, I have been trying to develop a work wear capsule wardrobe, on a shoe string budget, that will really work. I believe you do not need a huge work wardrobe to have a great office style so I have been focusing on getting and adding a few essential office wear staples that with a little mixing and matching will serve me well as I slowly create a perfect professional closet.
