What do you consider staples when building a professional wardrobe?


I am making a transition into a job which requires more professional clothing, and I am wondering what pieces you recommend as staples for a (female) young professional to build a professional wardrobe. I like to have things I can mix and match and build various outfits with, I am planning to build up my wardrobe over the next couple of months and am wondering - where do you suggest I start?

    I have my first day on a new job tomorrow and that's exactly my plan - going with my conservative gray suit and a colorful top (an outfit I've been given numerous compliments on in the past). Going to bring a cardigan too in case I feel over done

    I have also had great luck with Ann Taylor - especially Ann Taylor LOFT which tends to be a bit younger and also a bit lower prices. I definitely have a decent amount of pro-clothes, but I need more of the basics you mentioned - shoes in particular

    Totally agree with this. Pick neutral pants and skirts and use your shirts to add style and color.
