Cue Jacket & Skirt | Sportsgirl Grey Tee | Nine West Pumps | JCrew Tote

This is a no brainer really, every corporate wardrobe should contain at least one two piece suit.

When it comes to the jacket – be prepared to invest in a really good fitting one – unfortunately you cannot hide from a  jacket that is poorly tailored.  You may have to outlay a bit of cash up front but if it is of good quality you won’t need another for at least 2+ years.   I usually wait until the end of year sales and pick one up from Cue to at half price.

When it comes to the bottoms, whether you prefer a skirt or pant it doesn’t matter.  I have both and rotate, but it is whatever you feel comfortable in.  I usually prefer to wear skirts for important meetings or job interviews so find that it is handy to have one always available in the wardrobe.

When it comes to colour,  I only go for black or grey.  Reason being,  these colours can be coordinated with many different tops/shoes and give you the feeling that you are wearing a new outfit.  I have gone for a bit of a casual look today by teaming the suit with a grey tee, but you could easily change the look with a collared shirt or even a silk cami.  Try different coloured shoes or earrings if you must inject some colour.
