Simple cardigans in multiple colors - perfect for a cold day at your desk or to tie an outfit together. I don't wear sleeveless tops to work very often, so cardigans are a necessity.
A white blouse, a patterned blouse, and a black blouse - enough said, right? I love to wear one pattern at a time, but the embellishment on the white blouse makes it much more interesting.
Pencil skirts and bell skirts - I love skirts, and bell skirts are perfect for girls with a little extra love on the bottom, or those who want to create curves. Make sure they're long enough to be work appropriate and you're good to go.
Classic black tote - big enough for your laptop or tablet, chic enough for the office and happy hour, this is a great investment piece that won't go out of style.
Black pumps, nude pumps, and a patterned flats - Shoes are one area that I don't go too crazy with at work. I have more fun wearing patterns and color in my clothes and I like to keep my shoes simple.
Slacks and pants - I live in my cropped cigarette pants from Gap (I think I've gone through four pairs since I discovered them a few years ago!). They work with any height of shoe and are great for untucked blouses. For longer pants, I opt for slacks with a little flare or width.
