#17: Fashion for the Professional

Being professional, working ladies can be hard, especially when you don’t know what to wear! Not all outfits translate between work and personal life, and it’s not always easy to stay atop of trends financially. So what’s a working gal (or gent) supposed to do?

In this episode, we turn to Lauren Bernard, a style blogger who writes the popular blogĀ Wellesley & King, to teach us the ropes of fashion for the workplace. If you haven’t checked out her Instagram, you must do so immediately! Life-changing.


In this episode, we discuss:

  • The 3-5 essential pieces of clothing every man and woman should have
  • How to build a professional and personal wardrobe without breaking the bank
  • Whether you should have a budget for clothing (the answer is: yes!)
  • Whether online retailers like StitchFix are worth the money
  • Whether you should shop online or in person
  • What trends are heading our way for spring and summer
