You've heard it again and again, about the importance of having the classics make up the base of your wardrobe. There's a reason this piece of advice is reiterated each year; almost everyone needs clothes that are work appropriate and will take them from day to night, from work to events. Now that I work in an environment with a strict dress code, I am realizing that there are large holes in my wardrobe where the classics should be. I spent this past weekend working to fill in the gaps by stocking up on the pieces that are foundational and long lasting. Every woman needs a white button up and great pair of fitted dark denim. Swipe on your favorite red lipstick and throw on a pair of pointed toe pumps and you've just elevated your casual outfit to work wear. (Seriously, this is what I wore for my second day of work).
