For client meetings and job interviews, it pays to have a crisp white shirt that embodies professionalism and finesse. We love the modern lines of this black and white spliced shirt ($95) from Cue.
2 / 10
A sleeveless blouse that can be worn under any jacket or cardigan is a must-have. The look and price of this cut-out neck blouse ($24.88) from Target is just right. Can be paired with skinny pants, a pencil skirt or a suit.

These oh-so-flattering Curvy Fit Skinny indigo jeans ($249) from Bettina Liano are designed with contoured waistband to suit shapely curves (for those of us who don't have Jennifer Lopez's bum). The cotton and elastane blend also makes them super comfy for long hours sitting at the computer.

Everybody experiences those can't-get-out-of-bed mornings. For cold days when two items of clothing just seems too much to handle, a cardi dress can be slipped on in an instant. The I was Not Here! cardigan from Alannah Hill is long in length for extra warmth, with a ribbed collar and crystal buttons to add a little sparkle to your day.
5 / 10
Need comfy shoes to get you to and from the office, but not a fan of the sneakers/business attire look? These pointed toe Itsonn flats ($119.95) from Nine West will have you walking to work in style. The slight wedge heel elongates legs so they still look great in skirts, while eliminating the risk of heels getting stuck in pavement cracks and escalators.
6 / 10
The Amber black patent leather pump ($139.95) from Zoe Wittner says "I mean business", but is also a wonderful shoe to hit the town in afterwards for corporate functions or post-work drinks.
7 / 10
The most simple, yet underrated staple in any work wardrobe. Check out this comfy and fully-lined, one-button closure suit jacket ($199.95) from Portmans.
8 / 10
The ultimate feminine office essential for every woman's work wardrobe has to be a flattering pencil skirt. This houndstooth ponte skirt ($24.88) from Target features decorative button tabs and a back split to ease movement and minimize shuffling.
9 / 10
If you've ever admired a sexy-looking handbag on the bus or subway during the ride to work, then you know that a stylish carry case for all your office papers is absolutely essential. The Turnlock Worker ($549) from Mimco features a separate zipped compartment for your laptop or iPad.
10 / 10
The simple shift dress is a straight-up and down staple, but it needn't be boring! This Light Stream fitted sleeveless dress ($499) in neon coral from Ginger & Smart can be worn on its own or paired with a suit jacket for meetings.
