1. Separates – rather than buying a suit jacket and pants that only go together, invest in pieces that go with more than one other piece in your wardrobe – a blouse that can go with pants and a skirt, and a blazer that can go over a dress or a skirt, for example.
2. Mix basic and bold – Unless you work for a fashion magazine, you should still want to maintain a level of conservatism. Therefore, I suggest pairing traditional work pieces with less traditional ones.
3. The real secret is in the shoes – Even on those days when you just don’t have the time or energy to mix and match, a traditional suit paired with quirky pair of shoes, socks, or tights can spice things up.
