1. A Black Pump

Since you’re going to wear your shoes for a week, opt for a versatile pair of black pumps that can be worn with practically any outfit combination. Go for covered toe styles that often look more professional than sandals or peep-toe shoes. Stilettos may be nice to add some inches to your stature, but you may also wish for comfort without sacrificing style. So, choose a style that has padding to ensure your comfort throughout the day, and opt for a modest heel usually around 2-4 inches.

2. Structured Handbag 

A sophisticated handbag is the perfect finishing touch to your new professional outfit. So, opt for a high-quality leather handbag that will serve you well for many years. Go for wider and more structured style that can accommodate all your essentials like paperwork, diaries, and laptop making them look organized and neat. Neutral shades, especially black is the most elegant shade you may go for. Bold colors, touch enticing textures, and creative prints add personality, but avoid anything too flashy.


3. Complete Suit 

A basic three piece – blazer, pants and skirt – is the most essential item for every businesswoman. Make sure you choose a blazer that fits perfectly and versatile enough to match your skirts and pants.

4. Little Black Dress

Whether it’s a body con, A-line, or wrap, a little black dress is essential in any wardrobe. Better opt for styles with simple and minimal detailing that can be dressed up with your accessories or blazer.  You may dress up your little black dress with a statement necklace when you feel a little creative, and wear blazer with it to make your outfit look more formal.

5. White Top

Whether it’s a white button-down shirt, chiffon blouse, or pussy bow blouse, a white top is another wardrobe essential for every business woman. They’re also versatile enough to wear with printed skirts and blazers as well as plain ones to make your outfit office-appropriate.

6. Simple Skirt

A pencil and A-line skirt styles are the basic version of skirts you may go for especially in neutral color and simple design. Getting too short or getting too long on your hemlines doesn’t look professional, so just opt for a skirt that fall on your knees or a little below. A versatile color and style of the skirt can be worn with a variety of different tops, and nobody will notice!

7. Pant Trousers 

A classic pair of simple pants without heavy pleats, cuffs, or fancy embellishments will never go out of style as you can wear them with almost everything in your wardrobe while still looking fresh and chic. Have a black pair first then consider expanding to two or three pairs of neutral colors and creative prints appropriate for your work environment to take you through the week.

8. Sweater

Have a chic sweater to top your blouses, and shirt when it gets chilly in the office. You may also consider choosing a bold accent color or pattern to bring a bit of personality to your professional wardrobe. Houndstooth, stripes, and polka dots can be great as wearing loud and flashy prints will just take away the professional look in you.
