Professional Wardrobe Help:

First of all congratulations on your recent life achievements!  This is a very exciting time and of course looking fabulous is a must

Here are a few items that are essential on everyone wardrobe because of their functionality and of course they would never go out of style.  The best part about this is that you can mix and match many if this items and create different outfits.

A basic black dress– Try to find a style and cut that would flatter your body. Also look for versatility; the dress can look amazing over a blazer for the office or with a fabulous pair of pumps for cocktails.

Blazer– As I mention before a blazer can dress up a fabulous LBD but that is not all. A fabulous flazer can be one of the best investments you ever made. It can create a power suit,  dress up a basic t-shirt and jeans. A well fitted jacket should follow the silhouette of a woman’s body and accent the hourglass curve at her waist.

Dress Pants– A very important part of a power suit! Find neutral colors like black and gray.

Skirt– A skirt is a feminine option to the dress pants and can be flirty or businesslike.

Classic Shirt– A white bottom down shirt is the obvious choice for this but look for one that accentuates your best attributes and minimizes trouble spots. For example, if you have wide shoulders, stay away from large collars.

Any Occasion Top– Look for something that can look great inside a jacket, or by itself (like stripes).

A day dress-Dresses are my favorite thing to wear during the hot months ( that in Houston can be like 10 lol) A good cotton dress can be a great option to run errands or  to have lunch.

Hope I was able to help!

V neck is the best cut for tops. It will make the illusion of a longer torso, the lower the cut the longer it look, but as always be careful to not go too low.
