Dress to Impress: Work Attire

Though some employees must wear suits to work everyday, others need to find clothing that is appropriate for a professional environment yet still stylish enough to wear to after-work cocktails. With these three staples from Anthropologie you can go from day job to night owl without having to change your clothes.

1.) Sophisticated Cardigan: This Swallow's Twitter Cardigan is reminiscent of vintage Chanel with its chicly tailored shape and boiled wool fabric. The pale gray hue matches easily with printed shift dresses and skirts, and it's a perfect layering piece to keep you warm on brisk fall evenings. Plus, it looks much more expensive than its $98 price tag.

2.) High-Waisted Skirt: Bask in the flatteringly lady-like high-waisted trend with this Golden Pinpoint Skirt. This gorgeous skirt is sure to become a staple in your wardrobe that you'll actually look forward to wearing. Details like shiny gold buttons and a ruffled waist make this look like a high-end designer piece, and the go-with-everything solid black wool means that you can mix and match this with any other item in your fashion arsenal to your heart's content.

3.) Brightly Colored Coat: The Treetop Coat is the perfect way to incorporate brights into your wardrobe without looking like a color wheel. The stunning emerald fabric and interesting mod-ish tailored collar and cuffs make this a truly unique and eye-catching piece.
