First days are kind of the best. And, while we tend to get a bit nostalgic — envious, even — when the back-to-school commercials run, truthfully the grown-up first days are even more exciting than a new set of pencils and a seating assignment next to your crush. (Sorry, kids.)
For adults, a first day can happen at any point in time and for any number of reasons that are usually within your control: You've started a new chapter in your career, are beginning an adventure like you've always dreamed, or you're simply making a change for the better. Essentially, it's a fresh start and we can think of no better way to mark the occasion than with an outfit that feels just as exciting.
With this in mind, we've crafted three go-get-'em looks that are perfect for the first day of...well, whatever you've got planned. Think of it as a sartorial confidence boost. At the very least, it's a way to make sure you feel your best before embarking on a new challenge. Nay, opportunity. Click on for three such occasions and the day-of looks to match.
