So I started off by saying that the idea of a work uniform has some good company - aka Michael Kors and Carolina Herrera and many more. For me that is how I have grown my wardrobe. Two more staples I wanted to share with you guys are my jackets and dresses. With the pants and shirts I gave you earlier this week you really can mix and match anything to last!
The jacket - I love an open front jacket these days that creates a good silhouette. For me my current picks are Theory open jackets. They bring these back season over season. They are great to work as a suit if I have to go to court but also great to dress up jeans or do a more modern suit look like this with black Theory jacket (link above), Hudson jeans, Charming Charlie bag (some in this collection still available), and J Landa jewelry.
The Dress - so my go to easy on, one and done dress is Nanette Lepore 3/4 sleeve dress. I have posted on my instagram about this dress and shown you just some of 8 colors of this dress I have - yes you read that right. I have plain colors in royal blue, brown, black, purple, navy, color blocks, herringbones....lots. It is so easy to travel with and it keeps coming back year after year. Throw a jacket on and you have a suit. It travels so well too with never a wrinkle. One of my favorite versions of this dress in color block is on sale now at Neiman Marcus for just $74! Check it out! (picture below).
I hope some of these staples help you with ideas for your own uniform styles that really make dressing each morning effortless because all the individual pieces look good together!
