If you have landed your first job out of college, and you need a wardrobe that is less beanies and flannels, and more career man and maturity, it's time to get some staple items. There are some specific items that you want to get so you always look like the adult that you are, and so you can help to develop your own mature sense of style. Here are some of the things that you want to start implementing into your wardrobe, so you can hang out with co-workers outside of the office and not be worried about your style.
Soft Comfy Tees
Casual ultra-soft, flowy tee shirts are the perfect item for all wardrobes. You can wear them plain, under a dress shirt or sweatshirt, and they can go with shorts or jeans. You want to stock a few neutral colors and a few bright colors, so you can easily dress yourself up or down.
Dress Up or Casual Sweaters
A high-quality sweater will look sophisticated for a night out and if you need to dress up for an event and wear dress pants. It can also look mature but still casual with jeans. Find a great sweater with a neckline that you love, and get it in a couple of colors for a few different occasions. You can also put a collar under the sweater to make it office acceptable for the workday.
Blue Jeans without Holes
You need to have a nice pair of jeans. This means jeans that aren't trendy, distressed, or faded. You want a pair of jeans that you can wear when you need to feel sophisticated, but also to watch a sports game at a bar. Take the time to visit a tailor and have the jeans altered and fitted properly.
When you become an adult and you want to be taken seriously, it's time to get rid of offensive t-shirts and clothes that have stains and tears. If you don't want to spend a lot of money, you want to get items that you can mix and match and change to go with different items.
It may be worth talking with a stylist as well, to make sure that you are purchasing clothes that are in style, and to get clothes that fit properly. These wardrobe changes can help to make you feel and look more mature and change how others perceive you.
