Silk Scarf

The silk scarf has been a symbol of style since the 1930s. It can be worn in so many ways, either around your neck, as an accessory on your bag or in your hair!

La Marinière Top

The very French marinière top is a really cute and versatile item to add to your closet, giving your look a casual Frenchy vibe.

Structured Blazer

This item is in every chic French girl's wardrobe. It's not just for formal settings; match it with a t-shirt underneath and a pair of jeans for an easy, elegant look.

Flats

This is a very classic and easy to wear shoe that won't take too much attention away from the rest of your outfit. Parisian girls wear flats all year round, weather permitting of course.

Trench Coat

The trench coat will be your best friend in spring and early winter. Throw it on for an instant upgrade, and feel free to stray from the classic beige color.

Black Leather Bag

A leather bag is elegant, practical and convenient. It never goes out of style and you can wear it every day of the year. A must have!

Straight Leg Jeans

You won't often find a French woman in skinny, tight clothing and jeans are no exception. Straight leg jeans are the popular choice, preferably a pair of Levi's 501s. They're comfortable and casual, and flatter in all the right ways. Luckily we have found a variety of cheaper alternatives!

Let's start with some basic rules we are probably all familiar with already.

  1. Know the dress codes of your company. Observe the style of the company and its employees, and dress accordingly. If you work in finance you probably wouldn't dress the same way you would if you worked in the fashion industry!
  2. Find the right balance. Add your own original touches to an outfit, but keep it professional.
  3. Keep it simple. Combine two to three colors at most, and keep accessories minimal.
  4. Don't show too much. Elegance in the office is important. Save those plunging necklines and short skirts for the weekend!.
  5. Don't sacrifice comfort for fashion. The most important rule is to feel comfortable in what you are wearing.

Here are some of our favorite basic pieces you need to add to your work wardrobe today! All of our images are taken from the product's details tab, and you may click on the images to take you to the actual product.

The Winter Coat

Enhance your professional look with a coat that has a flattering cut and shape.

The Blazer

This is the ultimate basic that will take your look from bland to classy in the blink of an eye. Try it cropped, oversized, or long...each style will give you a different look!

The Dress

Simple, easy to wear and feminine, the dress remains a must.

The Top

Opt for the classic, clean-cut button up shirt to match with many different styles of pants or skirts. If you want something that will transition well to your date nights, choose a light blouse. In winter, a knit turtleneck or sweater will keep your look professional and cozy.

The Bottoms

Keep your pants and skirts streamlined and refined. They'll look nice, and might just end up being the most comfortable bottoms you own!

The Shoes

Be careful with how you select your shoes. It might not seem like it, but they can on their own mess up a look. Loafers and flats are the easiest choice, but if you can manage it heels will give you the ultimate look of a lady boss.

How To Transition To A More Adult Wardrobe

When you reach your mid-twenties, you might find your miniskirts, crop tops and bandage dresses pushed to the back of your closet while you desperately search for something nice to wear to a job interview or meeting. Transitioning from a younger, more casual wardrobe to one that is a bit more professional and adult can be tricky, but we've put together some basic essentials every grown-ass woman needs. Check them out below!

Dresses

Replace any see-through, extra tight or cleavage heavy dresses with something more versatile. A good dress will take you from a busy day at the office to a classy date with the right accessories.

Blazers

A blazer instantly makes your look more professional and put together. Say goodbye to your loose-fitting, oversized jackets and opt for something that is fitted just right on your shoulders and torso.

Blouses & Shirts

It's time to move on from crop tops and that t-shirt you have with the sassy quote on it! A nice blouse is great for any professional setting, and they have a loose yet more structured fit if you're feeling bloated but still want to look put together. A crop top won't be quite as forgiving...

Pants

We all love our worn-in jeans and leggings, and there's no reason to say good bye to them just yet. But there are many situations you'll encounter as an adult where you can't wear something so casual. A pair of fitted dress pants will instantly elevate your outfit, and are the perfect alternative for any occasion where jeans just aren't appropriate.

Bags

Donate sparkly handbags, bags covered in brand logos/names, shapeless backpacks and tote bags to a teenage girl in need. It's now time for a chic, timeless bag you'll own for years and can fit all of your essentials in.

Shoes

Make some room among your sneakers, combat boots and those sky-high heels you bought for clubbing for more professional, classic footwear that won't get you a weird look at the office.
