6 Elegant Essentials Practically Made for the Workplace

Wardrobe Basics Every Woman Needs for Work

Work outfits are the modern-day woman's nightmare. With every new job, comes the dreaded experience of shopping for new work clothes. From the lack of excitement in choices to the sky-high price tags, and the repetitive cuts & designs.

So we compiled a guide on essentials to start building your own capsule wardrobe just for work!

1. Piper Slip In Mules

These have an open-toe design so these are more appropriate if you have a more casual dress code in your workplace. Either way, you can’t go wrong with the suave elegance of the right pair of mules. The Piper Slip In Mules is designed with a classy, timeless style that's going to be wardrobe-worthy for months to come no matter the trend of the season. With a peep-toe design that doesn't 'overexpose' the feet which make for an incredibly professional look with an undeniable touch of style.

One of the biggest concerns with shopping for work outfits is the constant mental arguments on whether it's too much, too sexy, too casual & many other thoughts. The Piper Slip In's are the ultimate fix if you're looking for a clean, minimalist look. You'll be strutting to and from meetings with a special air of confidence knowing just how elegant these pairs make you look. Plus, it doesn't look like you're dressed for Sunday brunch but doesn't scream out boring either.

And you won't have to worry a single second about any discomfort especially since mules are backless. These Slip In's are handcrafted locally from the finest vegan leather available and sit on geometric 3 inch low heels. They also come with a microfiber lining and a padded footbed for comfort that lasts you all day long. You'll be able to stand in these for as long as you have to & longer without a thought to whether your shoes are comfortable enough.

2. Daria Pleated Mules

And here’s another pair of mules for more formal workplaces that don’t allow for peep-toes. The beautiful thing about mules is how timeless they can be especially if you want to make an impression in the workplace. Even though mules are supposed to be slightly more risque with their backless design, the secret is all in the design. And the Daria Pleated Mules are about the best pairs you can come close to thanks to their modern & classy make.

Another easy mistake to fall into when shopping for work outfits are the piece selections. When shopping for specific articles of clothes, it can be tempting to go on a streak of statement pieces. This bleeds into the major problem of how on earth you're supposed to put together all these different pieces together in the morning. It's going to take a ton of time, mental energy and suck the living excitement out of you even before your first workday. A smarter option is to opt for a slew of timeless, trendy basics that you can easily put together with one eye close no matter how exhausted you are in the morning.

Even if you're trying to go for something a little flashier, you'd have to start with the basics anyway!

The pleated fabric is made with a padded insole and a 3.5-inch curvy heel which all makes for an experience that offers elevation with comfort.

3. Luisa Slingback Pumps

Christy Ng's Luisa Slingback Pump is an updated take on the classic slingback style. Unlike slip-ons, these help attach the shoe more securely to your feet. It's handcrafted from vegan leather in a pointy toe silhouette with comfortable microfiber lining & a padded insole which makes these perfect for effortless all-day wear.

Styling for the workplace means you'll be opting for clean & professional over fancy schmancy so there's a good chance you're going to end up underdressing. Which means there's often room for pieces with designs that are a little more mature. After all, having a style that's on point makes for only one part of the equation. When you're in the workplace & frequently encounter superiors & competent colleagues, even a little bit of complexity can go a long way.

The Luisa Slingbacks are set on 3.5-inch sculptural heels that add perfect sophistication to this modern look. So if you've been trying to shoot for a more grownup look without sacrificing on style, then you've found them. First impressions matter after all especially if this is the first time you'll be meeting a client or need something urgently from another department.

These look amazing with almost any pair of office pants & other essentials which means half of your outfits are practically thought for ahead of time just because you already have your shoes figured out.

4. June Tote bag

We've all been there, carrying our handbag, and hauling 2 other bags for laptops and other stuff. Finding a good-looking bag that also doubles up as an appropriate bag in terms of actual useability by being able to fit all of your daily carry-ons & needs is like finding a needle in a haystack.

That's exactly what the Christy Ng's June Tote Bag is made for. It's made with a cut that's large enough to carry your daily essentials and other extras.

Which means you won't have to worry about lugging an extra dumbbell around your shoulders all day.

5. Colby Handbag

Looking for something a little more versatile? The Christy Ng's Colby Handbag could be just the thing with its seamless design and the comfortable soft and textured vegan leather. Instead of hauling many different bags for work & casual use, why not be able to have one for both?

And the Colby Handbag fits the bill perfectly with its unparalleled flexibility. It opens to a spacious inside with a secure & quality zip pocket to keep your small items organized. (And a zipper that isn't going to snap after a handful of uses) An office-appropriate bag should have sufficient room to carry all your work essentials but still being compact enough to be worn with elegance.

6. Jean Handbag

Having a round of reliable workplace staples means being able to pick the right bags which doesn’t just look good but also stands firm against daily travels, work trips, children drop-offs, and wherever life decides to take you next.
