Perfectly Tailored Trousers


Shopping for work pants that fit and flatter can be overwhelming. Unwilling to endure the trying search for the “perfect” pair, a lot of women end up wearing the same threadbare black pants to work for years. Remember: alterations are your friend. Read more to find out which pant is for you.

Fashionable, Comfortable Work Shoes

The right shoe can really be the glue that pulls together a stylish outfit. Get the shoe right and the silhouette is perfection. Get the shoe wrong and the whole outfit looks off. Which heels can you wear with a dress to an all day conference? Which flats will still make you look long and lean? Read the post to find out which shoes look fashionable, not orthopedic.

A Structured Tote

What makes a perfect work tote, you ask? It has to be structured enough that you don’t look sloppy at work. And most importantly, it has to be perfectly functional (and beautiful) for you. Decide what features you need in your bag and then read our post for the best options!

A Comfortable Blazer

A lot of women have given up on blazers because they don’t think they can wear a blazer without feeling constricted in their movement or like they can’t wait to take it off. You just haven’t met the right blazer, we say. Everyone looks better in a jacket, and no one feels put together in a cardigan. Please please please do yourself a favor and trade in at least one old ratty cardigan for one of these comfortable but chic blazers.
