WORK MOD(A)

SUIT YOURSELF nicely

Office-worthy separates that’ll keep you looking polished and put-together, always.

LOOKING FOR A 9-TO-5 MAKEOVER?
Stop wasting time every day on what to wear by building a capsule wardrobe that works for your industry.

MAKE A POWER MOVE with modern yet feminine separates. Professionalism should always be the theme. Confidence and comfort should be the feeling.

While the demands of dressing overly conservative have loosened, sticking to a classic silhouette is still key. Depending on the work dress code and environment such as a creative arts atmosphere, bright colors might also be a wise choice if you want to be more expressive.

Mix and match styles to create your desired custom suit

Blazer
Blazers are super chic — either as a separate or as part of a suit. They can take you from the office to happy hour with your coworkers or dinner with your significant other. Make it fun – opt for color or print.

Blouse
A great blouse can help you out on many occasions. Work, dinner, and interview. You can wear it with your most beautiful blazer or with your favorite denim jacket. Whatever your mood, the perfect blouse can add real value to your look. And for those who don’t like to look professional, you can choose to wear an oversized style (or men shirt) and be on the cutting edge.  Yes, even in a blouse you can feel relaxed!

Skirt
A well-fitting pencil skirt in a classic pinstripe or neutral color, or a knee length A-line skirt is your best friend to make all the other pieces in your wardrobe work together.

Sheath/Shift Dress
Where more formal dress is still required, you’ll need a closet full of shift dresses, especially if you’re heading into the courtroom, for instance.

Flat-front Pants
more formal than regular pants ideal for workwear outfits, no bulk in front for a smooth line.

Other wardrobe essentials to include in your Work Week Capsule Wardrobe:

Corporate Dress Be ready with a couple of luxurious but versatile dresses, long and short, in your wardrobe that will make you feel confident when you need to bring your A-game for A Ted talk, for instance, or an important VC pitch, an interview, presenting findings to the board, galas and fundraisers.
Be mindful that there is a difference between a party cocktail dress and a corporate cocktail dress.

Pumps Work-appropriate summer footwear is tricky. There are so many stylish options out there but it’s easy to pick the wrong one for the office. A slingback pump offers the perfect compromise between a pump and a sandal. This style is appropriate for virtually every office.

Moda Tips:

  • Get a few basic blouses and pants in different colors and go through them in a regular rotation. The beauty of these outfits is that they don’t look overly starchy or formal, so they can easily transition into evening or weekend activities, like a casual dinner or brunch with friends.
  • Add a dash of color to your classic all-black look.
  • Switch from a blouse or formal dress shirt to a modest casual tee or camisole here and there
