We Found Every Piece You Need For A Perfect Work Wardrobe



Suits and T-shirts? Heels and shorts? Jeans and blazers? Does the modern office even have a dress code any more?

Actually, it does. In talking to some of today’s leading, innovative entrepreneurs, we’ve discovered the keys to the contemporary, always-appropriate professional wardrobe — boldness, individuality, classic pieces, and careful, curated styling. Now, we’re teaming up with Levi’s® to bring that business know-how to you with our office outfit finder. Here you’ll discover five perfectly professional ensembles for five very different business situations, all of them audacious, brave, and forward thinking — just the kind of thing you'll need to leave a strong first impression or close that big deal.

Dig in, you movers and shakers. Your New Suit is here.
These days, the modern-day cowgirl need not forgo her love of denim and booties to enter the conference room. Instead, strut your Western wares in a look so professional, you’ll never want to suffer in slacks again. Thanks to the Levi's Bootcut Skinny Jeans, your legs will look elongated for a polished, streamlined appearance. Just don a printed button-down collar under a luxe pullover, and there you have a promotion-ready outfit in the making.

The perfect work-to-play ensemble can be hard to achieve. Luckily, taking an outfit from nine to five — and beyond — is easy with one of fall’s more eye-catching trends: mixed prints. The trick is to start with a simple, chic piece, like the Levi’s Gingham Check Dress, to anchor and lend its charm to your accessories. Then, add a striped cardigan or blazer, a statement necklace, and a colorful bag to finish both your projects and your Pinot in bold style.

We’re talking about chunky knits, utility boots, basic tees, and, of course, the foundation piece that brings it all together: the Levi’s 562 Loose Taper Jeans. Simple for the office and versatile for any after-work activity, these denim stunners will make you wish every day is casual Friday…if you don’t already.
