Just got a new job at one of those Offices? Don´t know what to wear? Yeah, I feel you… Just like a million-other people who just started that job too. It´s tricky converting one’s wardrobe to match a new environment. A new purpose really. Perhaps minimalistic business clothes are not even your style and the only thing to be found in your wardrobe is a garden of patterns.

Now to solve this issue, most of us either go for a panic-oriented shopping tour or put our trust in Google. These are both legit solutions, unless
- you’re not only looking to find suitable work clothes that fit your figure (and hopefully fulfil at least some criteria of your personal style)
- but also want to shop consciously.
If you thought that you were on a real hunt before, think again because it is here that the search really begins…
The reason is that unless you´re the Wolf of Wall Street and take a regular Sunday Swim in money, meaning you have the ability to buy high-fashion designer clothes on an everyday basis. You are most likely struggling to find those Sweet looking, Affordable & Conscious Office clothes.
This is practically the exact issue that Cynthia Salim, founder of Citizens Mark identified a few years back when she herself got a job offer at a big consulting firm. This is also why her brand will be the first Office Wardrobe Insider Tip I’ll give you.
In 2 words: Stylish & Professional. Or like Cynthia herself would put it: Credible.
Continuing on this Side lane of Wall Street I’d like to present below list, filled with more or less strict office clothes for the conscious buyer.
Don´t forget the shoes!
