No matter which way you spin it, a pencil skirt is streamlined, sophisticated and super versatile. Introduce texture to upgrade the simple shape, and then top it off with a cropped jacket or belted blazer to balance the slim fit.
Cut through the boring boardroom garb with a printed frock that projects plenty of personality. The nine-to-five requirements? Sleeves, a hemline that hits below the knees and a silhouette that allows you rom to move. A shirt-style cut is always a safe bet.
The classic cotton wardrobe essential will never look out of place at the office, but if your aesthetic skews more feminine, opt for a pussy-bow collar or a shirt that's cut from silk. Tuck it in and get set to smash through that glass ceiling.
This practical piece is the perfect cover-up during transeasonal weather, and an easy way to smarten up plain tops without going the blazer route. For maximum mileage, try transforming longer styles into a dress after hours.
Pointed-toe heels are forever in favour–just pick a pair comfortable enough for day-long wear, which usually caps at three inches high.
