9 Totally Versatile Pieces You (and Your Partner) Need in Your Work Wardrobe
If you and your partner are a working, cohabitating couple, that early morning tango is probably a familiar dance to you. There's the race to beat the other to the shower, the closet shuffle, the kitchen sidestep as you both rummage for fuel, and the final hustle to make it out the front door in one well-put-together piece. Luckily, there's one thing that can make your weekday mornings a little less hectic for both of you: an edited work wardrobe.
By leaning on foundational staples that can easily mix and match with one another, daily dressing doesn't need to be a struggle. Click through to see the no-fail office pieces you and your significant other can rely on to make mornings (almost) a total breeze.
A silky blouse for her
Swap a standard cotton button-down for a luxe satin blouse ($40). It's just as versatile and effortless as a button-down, but boasts modern details like a zipper accent and smooth texture that help take it up a notch. Plus, it's elevated enough to throw on in the morning and easily transition to evening without a second thought.
Classic trousers for him
There's no denying that the ultimate staple in any man's closet is a pair of black slim-fit trousers ($60) — they go with absolutely everything. The crease retention and no-iron fabric of this particular pair make it a fuss-free option any morning of the week.
Leg-lengthening heels for her
For the ultimate elongating effect, a pair of nude heels ($50) will do the trick. The asymmetrical straps add an unexpected touch while the closed toe ensures there's no need to think twice about having a presentable pedicure (or lack thereof), which is the last thing anyone wants to be worrying about on a rushed morning.
