Your first professional job can be intimidating. What will your coworkers be like? Will you love your job? Will you be able to handle the stress of multi-tasking, while maintaining a social life? But one of the most important questions is:

What Should I Wear to My New Job? 

Luckily, many stores like H&M, Forever21, even Target, are offering many stylish career looks for an affordable price. Not only do they sell clothes, but the accessories to go with the outfit.

What to Wear the First Few Days

For your first few days on the job, it is smart to dress up, just to get a feel of the dress code. You may have just entered a jeans-and-t-shirt environment and get a few looks, but your new co-workers will know that you care about your appearance and that you will put some effort into this job. When you are wondering “What do I wear to my new job??”, you should err on the side of being over dressed!
A neutral dress, black heels, and a black blazer to cover up will never look bad! To kick this outfit up a notch, it’s all about the accessories! For example, you could keep it neutral, except for a bold, mustard handbag. A scarf can keep you warm if the office is a little chilly, can be used as a head wrap, or tied around your neck in a cool way. A  pink floral ring adds just a touch of a girly accent, without going over the top. Plus, this look can also transform from day to night.
