The highlight of this piece is its versatility from the boardroom to the break room, the little black dress will give you the confidence to take on the day.

The Black Pant
A great pair of black pants with the perfect fit is your work wardrobe’s best friend. Fashionable to the finish, black pants set the groundwork for a workday look fit for climbing the corporate ladder.

The Classic Pump
The pump is a tried-and-true classic for work wear, but who says your go-to heel has to be boring? Metallics are perfect for spicing up your workday neutrals. Hematite hues throw convention to the wind but maintain the ultra feminine look of the pump silhouette. A block heel gives you more comfort while offering all the height of a stiletto. Shake up your everyday black heel with mixed textures like faux leather and suede for a kick of intrigue. Your favorite pumps will (literally) carry you all season long.
Nothing says take on the day quite like a blazer. Sharp, sophisticated and chic, this always fashionable jacket deserves a place in your closet. A black blazer is essential to your workweek wardrobe because it can be paired with your favorite black or printed pants, skirts and dresses alike. Add excitement to your LBD by layering a graphic windowpane print blazer over it. Print or solid, the blazer will frame your look and make it fabulous. For a business casual look, keep things professional with a blazer paired with dark wash skinnies and a bow blouse. No matter the day of the week, you can never go wrong with a blazer as your final outfit piece.
