    Sleek black pumps not only work hard, they play hard too.

    Must-Have #5: A Slouchy Army Jacket

    If you’re lucky, you’ll have some downtime to explore the city and partake in a little shopping—wink, wink. A lightweight army jacket is perfect for combatting breezy spring temperatures.

    Must-Have #6: A Shrunken or Oversized Jean Jacket

    When the workday is done, substitute your tailored blazer for a casual jean jacket.

    Must-Have #7: Chic Black Trousers

    Tailored black trousers, cropped at or above the ankle, can pull together any outfit for a professional result.

    Must-Have #8: Cropped Blue Jeans

    Pack your favorite blue jeans with some stretch for off-duty excursions.

    Must-Have #9: A Knee-Length Pencil Skirt

    In black, this silhouette can be ultra flattering and styled for day or night with the switch of a top.

  • 11 of 25

    Must-Have #10: A Menswear-Inspired White Button-Up

    Of course the most versatile piece in your closet should come along with you! Whether in silk or crisp cotton, we love the way this piece smartens up a pair of trousers or flirtatious skirt in a flash.

  • 12 of 25

    Must-Have #11: A Black or White T-Shirt

    A worn-in tee, in either black or white, is great for low-key activities, and can even be paired with your blazer and trousers for a modern take on the suit look.

  • 13 of 25

    Must-Have #12: A Statement Necklace

    A bold necklace can be the perfect conversation starter at networking events, while also adding an extra element of style to your look.

  • 14 of 25

    Must-Have #13: Pointed Flats

    When wearing flats to the office, go for a pointed shape. With noteworthy details, the feminine shoe is just at home with tailored trousers as it is a pair of boyfriend jeans.
