I’ll be honest, I don’t miss the days of having to wear a full suit to the office every single day, but that’s because I never had a suit like this when I was working in a ‘business professional’ office ;). Suits are huge right now whether or not you work in an office (just a bonus if you do!). I’m currently loving colored suits like this one & this one from REISS, but also classic options like this one…obsessed with the buttons!
I remember splurging on a couple pieces from REISS when I got a new job – my friend told me if you buy quality basics, they will last you much longer. I wasn’t sure since I didn’t really want to spend a lot on work clothes, but I still have those two blouses 7 years later, and they look brand new (tip: always dry clean your investment pieces)! And everything I bought on the cheap has been donated (4+ years ago). So, while I know it’s not realistic to splurge on your entire wardrobe, especially if it’s for work, I think investing in a few key pieces is so worth it in the long run! If you work in an office, here are the items I would recommend for you: these pants, this blazer, and this blouse. This blazer is on my wishlist – I know I would wear it all.the.time.
I wore this look to a meeting downtown last week, but I will definitely be paring the blazer with a white tee and jeans for more casual days. This cami is a new favorite – I love the stitch detail, and the material is nice and thick, want it in black as well!
I love that these mules look like pumps with this suit, they’re so comfy! I wore them with jeans over the weekend also.
REISS also has a lot more than suits & office-wear. I ordered this knot bracelet (wearing it in these photos), and it would make a great gift for the holidays as well – it’s only $60 but looks like one I just saw for over $300! I also ordered this dress for a holiday party. I can not get over the color and the amazing details (check out the buttons on the side and the back! all the heart eyes!).
