Easy ways to streamline your morning routine.

This tight edit is all you need to look polished at the office. Also note that our picks can also be worn together, a key goal for easy office dressing. Check out our 8 staples that everyone should own to make their mornings easier.

A Perfectly Tailored Pencil Skirt

Make like Kate Middleton and find the pencil skirt hemline that flatters your legs best. Have it tailored to a T and watch how easy it is to get dressed, especially for those in a professional environment.

Single-Sole Pumps

A single sole shoe is equal parts comfy and chic. And isn’t that all we truly want in our lives?

Prada Pointy Toe Pump, $670

A Structured Tote

Nothing says “I got this” like a bag that sits by itself on the board room table.

Botkier Murray Hill Tote, $298

A Cotton Button Down

 You can never have too many white button-down shirts, especially with a little flair like the sleeves on this Valentino option. Paired with classic slacks, the minor detail will make you look more like Jenna Lyons, and less like a cater waiter.

Ankle Length Slacks

Not only does this flattering cut work on most body types, it’s super versatile. We love this option from J. Crew, cut from a shiny shantung fabric that can be styled easily for the office or any formal setting.


A Goes-with-Everything Blazer

Wear it as a part of a two-piece suit or stash it on the back of your office chair to combat the office AC blast.


A Day-to-Night Dress

You’ll never forgive yourself for missing happy hour because you rushed home after work to change, so find a dress that can easily transition from the office to your favorite bar.


Casual Friday Denim

Distressed boyfriend jeans are fine and dandy for the weekend, but opt for dark denim at work. The indigo hue reads as professional and won’t look out of place in a meeting.
