12 Pieces Every Professional 20-Something Should Have in Her Wardrobe

There’s a point when a young woman looks at her closet and realizes she doesn’t have anything that’s appropriate for her new life as a professional woman working in a classy environment. Stick to these 12 items and you’ll be a success in any business setting.

Black Blazer

The great thing about a good-quality, fitted black blazer is that not only does it give your appearance a professional polish, it also helps keep you warm when the office air conditioner has been turned up to high.

You can find great black blazers at Easton Town Center’s White House | Black Market!


White Button-Down Blouse

Don’t underestimate the value of a good white button-down blouse. Make sure the blouse is long enough that it can be tucked into your waistband, and that it will stay tucked in when you sit down or lean forward.

Soft Cardigan

The soft cardigan might not be the best choice when you have a high-powered business meeting, but in all other circumstances, it’s a good choice. Stick to a simple cut and a plain design.
