Today officially marks day two of my working from home situation and to be honest, I don’t hate it. While I will more than likely be wearing jeans and a cozy sweater on most days, I’ll always be a fan of office wear. Working in corporate america for over five years gave me the opportunity to navigate 9-5 style. I think it’s safe to say that I found and curated all of the office wardrobe essentials every girl boss needs. Whether you’re in the office on the regular, working from home like me or have the occasional in-person meeting, you just can’t go wrong with curating a professional and appropriate wardrobe. The best part? Most office-friendly pieces are super versatile and can be paired with jeans or more casual pieces to take you into less formal settings.
One of the things I struggled with most when dressing for work was finding staple pieces that didn’t break the bank. Sure, we all know a suit and a chic dress are two of the tools every working gal needs. But to be honest, finding pieces that were affordable and long-lasting can be tricky. Look no further, ladies! I’ve rounded up my Top 10 Office Wardrobe Essentials Under $100. Yes, the ten basic pieces you need to build an epic professional wardrobe and each piece is under $100.
In this week’s edition of The Lo Edit, I wanted to curate pieces that actually made sense and could also help you build a few different outfit options. Each of these items can be paired with each other for the perfect 9-5 look. You can also pair them separately with some of your favorite casual go-to’s for happy hour, brunch with bae or a last-minute coffee meeting.
