Choosing your outfits for work may seem like a full-time job by itself. Often it comes down to what you feel is more important - looking fresh or being comfortable? Well, why not have both?

It’s important to look put-together and professional. Like many working women, you might also like to keep your look fresh and trendy. How can you do that? Check out the sample outfit we’ve put together below – it will give you specific clothing options, plus a discussion of what to look for in similar items.

Women’s Solid Pique Polo by Dickies

Let’s begin with the basics of a structured outfit: the shirt. It is important that your work shirts are well-tailored and flattering. However, you need to bear in mind that it’s also important to feel comfortable, otherwise your work day can easily become torturous.


When it comes down to shirts of all types, we recommend Dickies. This company started making work gear for both women and men in 1922. Since then, they have become one of the leading US-based companies in the work apparel and accessories sector.

Let’s face it – Polo shirts never go out of fashion, especially in trendy colors like burgundy. Dickies’ Women’s Solid Plaque Polo is moisture wicking, which is an important thing to consider, especially with summer quickly approaching. In addition to the classic fit, the longer length of the shirt provides comfort and coverage. Dickies has also included side vents for additional heat relief.

The interior twill tape detailing, and the fact that the shirt is tagless, add to the already comfortable design of this work clothing item. As a bonus, logo imprinted buttons and a longer-than-standard placket give this shirt a truly unique character.
