I am revamping my closet. What are your work wardrobe essentials and how many of each do you have? I always revamp my bottoms and shoes because I always can mix and match my blouses. Sorry if this seems like a weird post but I honestly would love ideas while there are still awesome sales in stores! Perfect time to stock up.
3 bootcut black slacks
1 bootcut grey slacks
2 skinny leg black dress pants
1 skinny leg grey dress pants
2 black pencil skirts
Black flats, booties, heels
Nude heels and flats

LittleButtons : I don’t have a number but here is about what I have:
-Various cardigans (black, grey, burgundy)
-3 black slacks
-Flats (2 pairs)
-Flat booties black (1 pr)
-Shell tanks to go under slacks (unsure but too many that don’t fit and I use the same ones)
-1 black blazer for meetings
-1 blue blazer
-No heels as I have foot problems.

tnacity1123 : Didn’t even think of blazers! I have a bunch but never need to wear them so I am not sure they even fit. I should check that

sweatergal007 : LOVE shells! Those are my lazy day go-tos. Throw on a shell and cardigan and BOOM! I look somewhat put together haha

I work at a start up in Manhattan so my work clothes are mostly casual and black. I’d say the essentials are:
a few solid colored silk shirts (navy, white and black)
More black shirts
2 pairs of leather/suede boots
Nice leather handbag
Tbh most days I look like I’m on the set crew of a high school drama club or going to a very casual funeral. It’s not very inspired but dark colors + blowout + moderate makeup looks put together and transitions easily from day to night

My typical work outfit is a pair of gray or black pants or a skirt, a tank top/shirt with a cardigan on top. If it is cold out I typically pair a scarf with it (I wear scarves daily from like October until April so I just keep it on when taking off my coat ha). I wear either black flats, gray booties, or black boots. I have other cute shoes but they don’t seem to come out as often.
I have certain “colors” I gravitate toward. So I have mix and match blues/greens for tops and also pinks/magentas/purples which I mix and match. I have some red, and other colors, but I tend to have mostly deeper colors.
I also LOVE wearing statement necklaces and earrings. If I wear a statement necklace I wear basic earrings and vice versa. Often I don’t wear a necklace UNLESS it is a statement necklace haha.
Oh…dresses actually are…the easiest thing ever to put together. You look VERY put together, but it is so easy to throw one on with a cardigan and boom! Outfit. I wear LOTS of fleece-lined tights in the winter which makes wearing my dresses very easy to wear even when the temperature is crazy low. Maxi dresses in the summer!

I prefer to wear skirts and dresses most days, so some of my esentials are
– Black, grey, and patterened pencil skirts
– Black dress pants (skinny and straight leg)
– All the great looking dresses I can get my hands on. I especially like dresses from Tahair and Calvin Klein.
– Variety of shirts and blouses
– Variety of cardigans and blazers
– lots of necklaces
– Tons of black tights from Old Navy. I’ve never found tights I like better than the ones at ON for some reason.

Scrub pants, scrub tops, good running shoes, underwear that doesn’t ride up my butt, a good sports/yoga bra that is supportive but not too tight, a hairband to keep my hair in a ponytail and also compression socks keeps legs and feet less tired. #Nurselife 😂

I have a lot of work clothes as I love shopping and fashion. But most of them are mix and match. My essentials are:
– suits. Simple jackets and cigarette rather skinny trousers. I have 2 blue suits, 2 grey ones, 2 pin stipe
– shirts and blouses. Mostly white and light blue. About 10 of those.
– a couole of more fun jackets (a red and a yellow one)
– dresses. I love Ralph Lauren ones from stretchy materials or Hugo Boss
– in terms of shoes a pair of black and a pair of blue pumps (good quality ones). Also some men style flat office shoes.

I couldn’t resist this post even though I can’t help at all. I wear this to work every day, unfortunately.
When I worked in an office I wore mostly skirts and blouses. I really hate pants.

My wardrobe is mostly dresses for work (personal taste – I feel so much more put together in a dress than pants + top + blazer/cardigan). Stylish boots for the winter, a versatile (and comfortable) pair of heels too!
I love to add jewelry like a fun statement necklace, cool watch and maybe a RHR.

Cutout tank tops/performance shirts, immense quantity
Light hoodies, 4-5
Trainers, 5 pairs
And they’re mostly all black or grey.
