Do you frequently throw on that same outfit because you struggle to find what to wear in the morning? Do you notice yourself hating your clothes? The issue is probably that one; you do not have the proper wardrobe essentials and two, you have not taken the time to figure out what your style is and purchase clothing according to that. What are the best closet essentials for work? What are the fundamentals of a closet that is chic but also professional? Below are 10 fundamentals of a chic yet professional wardrobe. Numero Uno is a fashionable well made boyfriend blazer. A boyfriend blazer is a more stylish version of the classic suiting blazers that usually cut right below the waist. A classic black boyfriend blazer is a long-drawn, more flattering, and incredibly versatile item that can you can easily dress up or down. What’s beautiful about boyfriend blazers is that they are typically lightweight and will keep you warm enough at your cold professional environment yet not too hot, compared to classic wool blazers. Additionally, boyfriend blazers worn on top of a basic outfit makes it seem as if you took your time and picked out your gear when you probably didn’t.
