Chic Sophisticate

With graduation just around the corner, the job search is endless. However, it is always fun searching for the perfect wardrobe for work. What I like most about shopping for work clothes is that you can get as many basic pieces that can be worn in many different ways. Here are few fab finds from a few my fave sites to start my work wardrobe off right!

This is a unique way to wear such a fab yet simple dress to work. The flirty ruffles paired with the sophisticated cardigan strays away from the tradition suit or skirt and top. Love it! (

Loving these fab tops from Express! I would wear these under a blazer or even for nightwear...tucked in of course!
This blazer is to die for! Although the longer length screams menswear, it still has its own feminine sophistication. (
Although I am not a big fan of wrap dresses, I am particularly fond of this one. It simple yet chic, and can be work in in the daytime or at night. (
You can never go wrong with the pencil shirtdress. The simple black with the gold belt adds sophistication to this otherwise leisure style. Pair this with some fab pumps and you're good to go.
I am obsessed with pleats! I particularly love these cropped pants because they have a slouchy yet sophisticated look. These can also be worn during the day with a simple tee or button-up for work. At night, pair this with a a wife beater and some red hot (or pink) lipstick!
Linen is a girl's best friend this season. I love the grey with the white lining. Make sure you add a nice top under the blazer for work! :) (
This purple top says, I mean business. The color is bold and the cut ensures a perfect fit. Pair with a pencil skirt or something fitting to accentuate your curves.
Although this jacket is paired with a casual outfit, it certainly is perfect for work. Pair with some nice pocketless khakis or a full skirt. Very chic! (
Every girl needs at least one cardigan in her wardbrobe, and this one is a must! Orange is versatile--it can be worn during any season. From a casual outfit like the one pictured to a pair of dress pants, this cardigan can't lose!
