As you build your work wardrobe, it’s important to consider the essentials: classic work pieces that won’t go out of style (and that always look great). Mix these basics with the trends of today for looks that are fashion-forward and always tasteful. From the perfect black pencil skirt and comfortable everyday pumps, to the blazer that works with suiting, skirts and denim, Staples serve as the foundation to the working girl’s wardrobe.

BasicsWe’ve developed our very own list of working wardrobe essentials. They are the go-to pieces we can rely on when we’re facing an important client meeting or just can’t think of what to wear (which happens all. the. time.) With just these 15 items in your closet, you have the needed ammunition to build appropriate (and stylish) outfits for work all year long. Check out our coverage of these essential pieces below:
