Whether you’ve got a glamorous walk-in closet like Carrie Bradshaw or a modest cabinet in your apartment, the dilemma of having "nothing to wear" will always be a recurring theme in every woman’s life. To make your pre-work routines a whole lot easier, here's a guide on the seven basic workwear pieces you should have in your closet.
White Button Down ShirtA white button-down simply a non-negotiable when building a classic and versatile wardrobe. Take your white button-down game to the next level and opt for one with statement details or pick from the men’s department for a chic oversized version.

You’ve heard it said that if you want to make your outfit strong, just top it off with a blazer and you’re set. While a black blazer is the usual go-to, you may take the trendier route and shop for a plaid jacket.

One thing’s for sure, you can’t go wrong with a classic wrap—they look good on everyone!

When it comes to picking a pair of trousers, stick to a classic cut and color. That way, it won’t draw attention when you wear them again in the same week.

Don’t limit yourself to a classic handbag—you can always pick one that come in statement colorways and interesting details. As long as your essentials fit into it with ease, your handbag should do the job of making your everyday workwear standout.

While a scarf may not be top of mind especially with the country’s tropical weather, it’s a great accessory to have to dress up your outfit or even your bag! Plus, it helps you cozy up when the office air conditioner gets too chilly.

Pumps may the go-to office footwear, but we say, a pair of stylish block heels is just as work-appropriate without scrimping on style. It’s a great excuse to go get that much-deserved weekly pedi, too!
