While I might not work in an office environment anymore, I still enjoy putting together classic wear to work style ideas. There’s something effortless about a great pair of slim ankle pants and a classic pair of comfortable pumps. Workwear style should be easy to wear and easy to put together, especially on those mornings where you want to hit the snooze button just one more time.
I’m definitely a color lover, but I also love a classic neutral color combination. I can’t reiterate enough how important it is to add to your closet classic pieces that can be worn time and time again.
Such is this black wool coat that I’ve had for over five years now. It’s one of those closet pieces that can be worn year after year, when taken care of properly. I always store my coats hanging in a closet with cedar, so as to stave off the moths when the weather warms up.
My slim ankle pants, handbag and jewelry are all classic pieces in my wardrobe that can be mixed and matched in a variety of ways. Each perfect pieces to create a classic wear to work style. I recently added these covet-worthy Chanel slingback pumps to my shoe collection, and I know they’ll be a tried and true pair of shoes in my closet.
With the classic basics, I can add in some lower-priced printed or colorful blouses from stores like J.Crew, Banana Republic or Ann Taylor. I immediately snagged this top when it went on sale a few weeks ago. I love the heart print, perfect for a subtle Valentine’s Day look, and a silhouette that can be dressed up, like this, or down with denim.
