The Basic Blouse
Men and women alike have donned a basic work blouse since the early ages of 9-to-5s. Easy to style and an instant classic, a white button-up is an uncontested must-have for any wardrobe. Spice up the old favorite with a new age collar that will have you stand out from your traditional counterparts.
The Statement Shirt
We know, we know. You’ve been told time and time again that the office is no place for the sartorially bold. But we’re tired of blending in. We think it’s only right to stand out in a statement shirt for your career’s biggest moments. For big meetings and big business, slip into a shirt with a small scale print in neutral colors. The subtle pattern with help you show your personality without unwanted side-eye from HR.
The Signature Pant
It’s the pant you’ll want to wear again and again, not just because of their style, but comfort.

No matter the color or style, make sure your power suit is tailored to a T. No baggy bottoms or slouching shoulders. Be sure to suit up in a two-piece that nips in the underarms and crotch.
Boys and girls, listen up. Upgrade your workwear with the staples that can turn any intern into a CEO–or at least look the part.
