Classic Work Outfit


When I think of a classic work outfit, this is the look that comes to mind. I love perfectly tailored pants and a crisp button-down shirt. This look is effortless, but is polished for any meeting during your 9 to 5.

When it comes to work pants, I don’t own several pairs.  Instead, I own fewer pairs that are tailored for my waist and height. It’s good to have basic colors; black, cream, grey and a few patterned trousers in your wardrobe. Other than that, spend your money on tops and blazers.

To help with the longevity of your trousers, take them to the cleaners every 3-4 weeks. I typically wear my pants 4-5 wears times before taking them to be professionally cleaned. As soon as I get home from work, I hang my pants on a hanging rack in my closet and steam them before wearing again.
