3 Work Wardrobe Wonders

Everyone’s had those mornings, the ones where you’ve tried absolutely everything on in your closet, you’re running ridiculously late, and you still have absolutely nothing to wear. It’s times like those that demand super-easy pieces that go with everything. Essentials that you can throw on without thinking and know you’ll look great. I call them wardrobe wonders—and every fashionista needs at least a few of them in her closet. Here are my three favorites that will have you going to work in style!

A Black Jumpsuit

workwonder-jumpsuit

A black jumpsuit doesn’t have be reserved for evenings only, especially if you choose a tailored style. Wear it to the office with pared-down classics like a trench coat and ladylike pumps, or get creative and layer it over a button-down. Either way, it’ll cut your dressing time down. One and done!

REVOLVE clothing $154.00

A Flippy Skirt

workwonder-flippyskirt

Fit-and-flare skirts are universally flattering; the flounce balances hips and thighs perfectly. Plus, they’re insanely versatile—for a downtown look, try one under a slouchy sweater with ankle boots; for a more polished vibe, wear with a slim turtleneck and heels.

A Cool Suit

Think of your suit as a really amazing multitasker—you can wear the pants and blazer together and look instantly put-together, or you can wear the jacket and pants separately with literally anything. The outfit options are countless. Just be sure to buy a suit with a really modern fit—either slim-fitting or purposely slouchy.
