Work Beyond the Basics

“I am finally working but I’m running out of ideas on what to wear.”

You finally landed a job and now you realized there are so many dress codes to follow. Is it finally time to say goodbye to all your basic pieces of clothing? Fret not, here are a few tips on how to style three basic pieces of clothing without compromising style and your job.

  1. Basic Tee

Everyone have that basic tee perfect for those casual hangouts with friends or spontaneous adventures. So, how will you make it fit for work? 

Grab your tee and match it with solid tone culottes or wide-legged pants and finish the look with those stylish block heels. Make it more professional by wearing a blazer that fits you perfectly.

2. Basic T-Shirt Dress

Let’s face it, you have that T-shirt dress ever since college. It’s your go-to piece when you’re feeling extra lazy and chill. But, don’t throw it out yet!

Match that t-shirt dress with a coat or oversized blazer and finish it off with those killer pump heels. Keep your look sleek and polished by adding a belt and simple necklace.

3. Basic Wrap Skirt

You always had that trusty wrap skirt in your closet on days whenever you feel sporty and dressy at the same time.

Get that wrap skirt and pair it with any blouse. Make a statement with your top. Go with layered blouses or tie blouses. It’s best if the material is sheer to look professional and neat. You can even opt to wear a simple high neck top or sleeveless top and finish the look with a coat, blazer or long jacket. Complete your look by wearing two strap ankle heels or block heels.

So, there you have it! Your timeless basic pieces of clothing appropriate for work. Don’t forget to make your look complete by grabbing your reliable “work” bag. Make sure your bag can fit all the essentials and materials you would be needing for the day.
