Sharing my business professional workwear capsule! Looking for a business casual capsule? Check out my post HERE.
What Is a Work Capsule Wardrobe?
If you are new to capsule wardrobes, a capsule wardrobe is made up of a few essential items that don’t go out of style and can be rotated seasonly. With classic, versatile and quality pieces, a capsule wardrobe will minimize your wardrobe and allow you to spend less time getting ready in the morning — while also looking effortlessly chic! [Here’s my personal capsule I put together each season.]
Similar to the benefits of a uniform [as workwear is essentially a uniform], capsules help keep your wardrobe to a minimum and removes the constant decision fatigue that comes with having an overabundance of clothes, shoes, etc.
Business Professional Capsule
The items I’ve chosen for this business professional capsule are the items I consider to be essential staples for creating just about any business professional outfit. The items here an easily be mixed and matched a number of ways, and dressed up or down [by adding or removing a blazer, wearing heels vs loafers etc].
The capsules I create hopefully provide you some inspiration, but don’t feel like you need to copy it to a T! If you prefer skirts or dresses, you could easily switch out the pants or add a skirt or dress. You can also incorporate different colors or patterns to switch things up [but if you’ve been following me for a while you know I love my neutrals].
Business Professional Product Recommendations
I’ve linked to many of the pieces I own below, including some additional selects brands I know and love [you can also use these brands as guidance for where to shop for workwear].
I worked in Finance for a few years so I am very familiar with a strict business professional dress code! If you need traditional business formal I highly recommend Theory suits for a quality wardrobe [all my suits I invested in years ago when I worked in Finance were Theory and they fit my petite frame perfectly]. I also love M.M. LaFleur for quality professional workwear that leans less towards traditional formal wear and more towards their ‘power casual’ pieces.
