I love rounding up a selection of classic pieces that will become staples in anyone’s wardrobe! If you are just starting to build your wardrobe for work, be sure to get pieces that mix and match really well. Also, keep in mind that black, navy, beige, and ivory are the best options for a timeless professional look!
