The VOCAB Closet – Clothes at the Office

                            A great example of changing your outfit from day to night

I came across this blog posted called, “The Office Stash: Clothes to Keep at Work” on the Trunk Club blog. If you’ve seen the show Mad Men then you’ll  understand this post. Chicago men’s outfitters, Trunk Club, suggested that an employee should always keep the following clothes at his desk: white shirt, navy blazer and trousers, tie, shoe-shine kit. Exactly what the character Don Draper does in Mad Men.

While these were some great suggestions for men, I thought that Chrissy Newton, founder of VOCAB Communications, could give some suggestions for women to keep some essential items in the office.

Often in the world of public relations, you’ll be going to events, meeting clients for drinks in the evening, and attending red carpets with your client.

Here are Chrissy’s picks of clothing and accessories to keep at the office. These picks will help you look PRofessional and have you ready for those unexpected days!


A pair of beige high heels will match any of your outfits. You can’t go wrong with these.

Throw on a bold necklace to add some POW! to your outfit.

I love my Mereadesso tinted lip treats! It is my personal favourite lipstick and I always have it on me. Wearing the classic red lipstick will have you looking red carpet ready.

You have your everyday purse that carries your note pad, MacBook Air, personal items… basically your whole world. You should have a clutch bag at work which you can switch up at night. It’s small, looks cute, and won’t be an inconvenience at an event.

A classic black blazer can do no harm! I think this item speaks for itself.

Just like the black blazer, a black pencil skirt is a wardrobe essential and can be worn at different occasions. Since the skirt is plain, you can wear a coloured top to add some flare.

These items should help you out in those unexpected days at work where you don’t have enough time to get home and change. – Chrissy Newton
