Ann Taylor The Ankle Pant in Herringbone
This sleek menswear inspired grey is a softer neutral than black, so it pairs better with a wider range of colors, from bright silk blouses to pale pastels. Bonus: They’re also available in petite and tall sizing.
To buy: $109; anntaylor.com.
H&M Tie Cotton Blouse
Think of this style as a modern update to the ubiquitous white shirt—swap it in for a basic white button-down style for instant street style cred. Also available in red-and-white striped and light blue-and-red striped.
To buy: $30; hm.com.
Banana Republic Pointed Toe Slingback Flat

To buy: $81; bananarepublic.com.
Loft Foldover Wrap Skirt
With an origami inspired waistband, this skirt adds so much more visual appeal than a simple pencil silhouette.
To buy: $60; loft.com.
Mignonne Gavigan Amber Silk Scarf
Delicately trimmed in tiny (faux) seed pearls, this gorgeous neutral scarf makes a striking substitute for a statement necklace. Also available in grey.

Mango Twisted Hoop Earrings
Just enough to catch the eye, but not enough to overwhelm pared down work staples, these mixed metal earrings add the perfect finishing touch.
