5 Must Have Workwear Basics

Happy Monday everyone! Hope you all had an amazing weekend and ready to go back to work. Over the years, I’ve cultivated some go-to work outfits for when I’m feeling lazy or uninspired that way I’ll always look presentable and ready for the day! I’ve come to realize that there are some pieces I keep going back to over and over again. As working professionals, we mainly wear work clothes 5 days of out the week, so I believe in having versatile pieces that I can wear for work and play to get the most wear as possible. Below are five of my go-to work basics.

1. Black Dress Pants

A pair of flattering black dress pants is a must have in every work wardrobe. I’ve had many pairs of black dress pants from wide leg, boot cut, and skinny, ranging anywhere from $20 to over $250. But my favorite one are these Kate Skinny Pants from Dynamite. It’s so flattering and I call it the “tights” of workwear. It’s super comfortable and versatile and I love how I can wear it to work or after work dinners. It looks great with knit sweaters, blazers, trench vests, you name it! The best part? It’s only $39.95!

2. Trench Vest

This isn’t a traditional workwear basic, but it is for me. I love how effortlessly chic it looks and how it can make any outfit, either dress pants or dresses, look more enhanced. It’s a great way to make basic long sleeve tops or overly frilly dresses look more structured and work appropriate. I love wearing it during the fall and winter months over blouses and sweater dresses. This mauve one is perfect for work and play, check it out here!

3. A-Line Dress

I probably have 5-6 Dynamite Pleated Fit And Flare dresses in almost every colour. It’s so flattering, simple and easy to wear. I especially love how I can wear this year round. It can be worn on it’s own during summer months with some heeled sandals, in the fall layered with a cardigan or blazer, and in the winter with a cashmere knit underneath with pantyhose and booties. This one dress can be worn so many ways and is definitely my lazy day go-to basic. It’s also only $39.95!

4. Neutral Blazer

Whether we work in a business formal or casual workwear setting, it’s always a good idea to have a least one flattering blazer. If you’re not a big blazer wearer, I suggest choosing neutral colours like the one I’m wearing to get the most wear. This way it can easily match with everything in your wardrobe. I love this double-breasted plaid blazer from Dynamite! The light colour makes it spring/summer appropriate, while the minimal plaid print gives me fall/winter vibes. It’s also currently on sale for only $35!

5. Tote Bag

Last but not least is a reliable chic tote bag. Sometimes I have to travel for work, so I need a sturdy and reliable work bag to carry my laptop. I personally carry the same bag to work everyday because I don’t like switching in and out of bags in case I forget some things I need! I absolutely love this super versatile 2 in 1 tote bag from Dynamite. It’s the perfect bag to take you from work to night. It includes both a tote bag for your everyday essentials and a clutch for after work drinks. I’m in love!!!
