‘Staple pieces’ are the building blocks of your wardrobe. They are the foundation on which the rest of your wardrobe rests however, that doesn’t mean they have to be boring! While selecting the right wardrobe staples will ensure your wardrobe remains timeless and will provide you with an outfit for any occasion, here at the 400 Co., we believe that corporate women should feel confident bringing their own personal style to the workplace.
The “I have nothing to wear!” situation is an age-old story, but with 400 Co.’s countdown of the fantastic four staple pieces for your work wardrobe, we hope the chapter in this story will come to an end.
1. The Substitute LBD
While the LBD is undeniably a classic, mix it up a little with a substitute LBD! Although LBD typically stands for ‘little black dress’, it doesn’t always have to be black. Bringing a charcoal coloured dress into your wardrobe will ensure that you can go from work to weekend without lifting a finger!
2. Blaze Them Away
Keep it classy with a tailored blazer fit for any occasion. Pair a tailored blazer with a pencil skirt in the office or wear it with some skinny jeans for a smart casual weekend look and blaze them away!
3. In the Office: Pens and Pencil Skirts
When you’re at the office, keep it simple and stick to pens and pencil skirts! For a modern take on the classic pencil skirt, really make a statement! Show your true colours with a gorgeous pastel that will keep you looking fresh as daisy, even after spring passes!
4. The “Goes With Everything” Blouse
If ever there was a garment to tie your work wardrobe together, it is the ‘goes with everything blouse.’ Pair it with a pencil skirt for a classic office look, or undo the cuffs, roll up the sleeves and let your hair down for a carefree yet classic weekend look.
Whether you’re picking an outfit for work or weekend, 400 Co.’s fantastic four staple pieces will ensure that you are ready for whatever the day throws at you and can walk straight out of work and into your weekend.
