5 Pieces to transition your wardrobe from recent grad to professional

The month after I handed in my final university project, I walked through the doors of my first job at a downtown Toronto design agency. I can’t remember what exactly I was wearing, but I vividly rememberfeeling like I ran out of outfits to wear to work that first week fast.

I knew I wasn’t going to wear a power suit and pumps, but I also knew my collection of oversized, skin-tight, or semi-sheer tops didn’t feel right.

At first black leggings felt like my secret professional weapon, but soon they made me feel like a total professional-fraud.

That wardrobe I had—the carefree whimsical eccentric unique wardrobe—stopped feeling like me. And instead started to feel like a weight holding me back from where I was going.

And when I changed my wardrobe, something more changed.

I started having creative ideas at meetings.
I started speaking up when my opinion differed.
I started owning my skills and expertise.

Today, I’m sharing with you, my dear friend, 5 little pieces that can make a big impact in looking (and feeling) like the professional and expert you now are, from stepping out your front door to leaving a post-work happy hour.

...Or as I like to say:
Feeling like your best self from coffee to cocktails.

Let's go!
