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.
