Women's Work Wardrobes Through the Decades

Nowadays many workplaces have grown out of their conservative dress codes and allow their employees to wear almost anything that they feel comfortable in. Women’s business attire has become more relaxed, more feminine, and more flattering. But the classic business suit remains a staple. Nothing says “in charge” or “professional” more than a crisp, well-tailored suit. Pencil skirts paired with delicate blouses exude power yet feminine style. Necklines, ruching, and buttons help dress up an average suit.
Even as workplaces become more casual and khaki and jeans become the norm, there are still some things women should never wear to work.
And remember, regardless of what is in fashion from year to year, the women’s business suit is always on trend. Invest in a classic set and use it as a building block for the rest of your wardrobe.
